Surprising and humiliating

I received another email from our quality assurance specialist and I got another failed audit. This is my third for this month. And for the record (not to boast or anything) I am not used to receiving such email and I am very particular with my stats...

Last week, for two consecutive days I actually got two. I was so pissed off then and was so mad at myself (the "cry baby" post is all about that bad news) but today is different...

Have you ever felt like "GUSTO KONG MA-BADTRIP PERO DI KO MAGAWA!?" I feel like ganun right now... I mean, for me it is something good... After really praying about it... Before I left for work kasi today I ask God to prepare me if ever I will receive another failed audit... Of which I did receive nga today but then I am praising Him right now because He answered my prayer! Hindi na ako yung Rajsh last week (mga officemate ko lang nakakita nun at hindi nakakatuwa...) na super, aaarrggh! I don't even want to remeber that! Hahaha!

Romans 8:28 is so true... And I will cling and hold to His faithfulness lang!

Allow me also to share some thoughts from the book I'm currently reading (Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot). Hindi lang pang-love life yung mga insights nya at super nakakatuwa...

She said (and I totally agree):

'When there is real weakness, especially of the kind that surprises and humiliates us, it is our opportunity to learn what Paul had to learn through his "thorn": the grace of God is all we need, for "...power comes to its full strength in weakness..."'

I was reading that chapter last night before I went to sleep and it comforted me... Natutuwa lang ako! I am so happy rin on how the Lord is calming the storm in me... Totoo yung status message / blog entry title ng isang friend na "Only my Maker can calm me down". Wala lang... kakatuwa!

And it is my prayer that when the day comes that I will see His purpose why He allowed this to happen, I will go on and praise Him more...

Ang ganda ng year-to-date stats ko at for sure hihigitin ako ng failed audits na ito pero for sure din He can turn around ang mga pangit na bagay into something beautiful and something that will bring glory to His name! Will be waiting upon Him lang...

Praise Him forever!

"Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name...

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name
..."
