Just thought I'd blog!

I miss those times when I regularly update this blog with personal reflections.

It's not that the Lord's been silent to me that I'm not able to share anything, it's just that I can't seem to find the time and the mood to write that much as I used to and so I am typing now even if I do not know if I will be able to finish and post this...

You see, there has been a lot of changes in my life over the last four months.

Let me share a few:

1. After six years of working in the night shift, the Lord opened up an opportunity for me to work in the morning shift since July 5 this year. A blessing from the Lord indeed because since then He opened up more ministry opportunities for me. Which leads me to number:

2.  June 30, 2011, my last shift in the night shift. I shared the Gospel to a friend and she prayed to receive Christ and that started a new discipleship relationship.

3.  July 9, 2011, Connect Ministry held a breakfast fellowship near our office for my friends at work.  That fellowship gave birth to a new Connect Growth Group that meets up every Saturday 7am.

4.  A good friend of mine referred to me a lady and asked me if I could disciple her.  After months of praying about it we finally met sometime early August (if I remember it right) and the Lord knitted our hearts to journey together.

5.  I turned 27 this year but I still feel like I'm just 25! Hahaha!

6.  John and I celebrated our third anniversary on Sept 21... And we realized that indeed time flies that fast!

And the list goes on...

One of the major things that the Lord taught me with all the "changes" mentioned above is this: He took me out of my comfort zone and taught me to adjust so I can TRUST and OBEY Him more.  It wasn't easy but the Lord remained to be faithful!

Well, you see... He has always been faithful to me! Even in the midst of my unfaithfulness to Him.

 Show me your ways, LORD,
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, LORD, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
for you, LORD, are good.
-Psalm 25:4-7
