Today, May 15, 2010 is my dear sister-in-Chirst birthday. ☺
+During an event at church. We were still praying about our discipleship then.+
I never really thought of discipling you. I was thinking about referring you to somebody else... I was praying for the Lord's guidance to lead me to your dicsipler...
Malay ko bang ako pala yun?!Hahaha! He spoke to me clearly one time, at talagang wala na akong kawala-- Bakit pa daw ako naghahanap ng ibang "makiki-journey" sa iyo eh pwede naman ako at ako naman ang GG leader mo. At parang ayoko pa daw nung una kasi natakot ako. Nakakatakot kaya na may madadagdag sa list na titingin sa akin closely, sa aking walk, sa aking mga sablay, kaartehan and kadramahan... Pero, ayun na nga-- discipleship is not about me naman eh, it's about Him and us being conformed in His likeness. And I thank Him for this wonderful and humbling privilege...
Indeed it was an answered prayer. For both of us. I'm glad I obeyed. I'm glad He brought us together in this journey. Like what you said na ang expectation mo sa relationship/journey na ito ay para ma-realign ka ng tuloy-tuloy kay God. Ako din, that's all I want! Saya yun, for us to be after His own heart...
Ayun... Maligayang Bati Sis! Mahaba-haba pa ang byahe natin... And I'm very excited to see you grow, kasi for sure along the way ako rin mag-go-grow! So as I've said sa SMS-birthday greeting ko sayo: tuloy lang! faithful ang Panginoon! Mahal kita Anne Bulsico!

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. -Philippians 1:9-11
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. -Philippians 4:4-9
