I will betroth you in faithfulness,and you will acknowledge the Lord."
One thing that God taught me through reading His word in the Old Testament, is that His faithfulness is never dependent on how faithful or unfaithful or obedience and/or disobedience His people are [both Israel during those time and the elect among the Gentiles today]. He is faithful because that is who He is. He is faithful because He is God and we are mere men, created beings.
How humbling is that! We are undeserving but He continuously extends His grace towards us, His people [the body of Christ]...
Thank You, Lord for who You are! :)

These roles have kept me very busy and are my main resons (or is it an excuse?) why I have neglected this blog a lot.
But I still miss it. I miss writing, I miss expressing myself and sharing my thoughts and personal reflections.
We'll see. :)

I praise and thank God for you
-for your love for me
-for your concern
-for looking after my walk with Christ
-for how you always point me to Him and to Him alone
-for how you always remind me to check my heart to be always right before Him.
I'm blessed to have a godly man like you in my life.
I praise and thank God for you
-for all of your rebuke
-for your tough love, though at times it's painful, I know its for my good
-for how you taught me to be unselfish, not to call too much attention to myself and to consider others better than myself
-for how you always remind me to love, to forgive, to understand and be gracious despite how others would respond
-for all the acts of service you have given me
-for all the quality times spent with you
-for not giving up on me, ever
-for being very, very patient with me sa lahat ng kakulitan ko, even if at times I'm stubborn, irrational, emotionally weird
-for all of your encouragments and prayer
-for being my best friend, my leader, my mentor, my accountability partner and my number one prayer warrior
-for the partnership that we have in the ministry
-for loving God above all, for your heart that you want to always give yourself fully to the Lord
And also I thank and praise God for how He has preserved you and me for each other and from each other.
My prayer and yes it is my desire to be worthy to be called your wife.
As a wife, I commit myself
-to give you my utmost and unconditional respect
-to submit to you in everything as you lead me to where God is leading you
-to always pray for you
-to love you and honor you
-to listen to you and be quiet
-to take good care of you and meet all your needs, especially your physical needs
-to support you and always be there for you be it good times or bad
-to make you m number one priority and ministry
-to walk with you faithfully and obediently in the Lord
I commit to do these not because I am expected but because I want to honor and give glory to God as I do. I trust that He will be the One to sustain me and lead me to be your wife, your lifetime partner.
"This is the confidence that we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know He hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of Him." -1 John 5:14-15
I am very excited for what God has prepared for us in our life together from this day on... Because indeed through our relationship, sa nagdaang apat na taon, God has given us a taste of the hope of eternal joy that we have in Him, how much more in our life together as husband and wife?
Indeed we are able to love each other because He first loved us, when He died at the Cross and paid for the penalty of our sins.
And indeed, this journey towards Christ-likeness has become really really much sweeter since you came along and I will forever be grateful for the Lord for that.
I am honored to love you and to be loved by you. I love you always and forever, love...
Thank You our Third Party, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we honor you and glorify You today for who You are in our lives!"
God deserves all the glory for He is indeed our Faithful Third Party! And yes, even after eight months (and counting), HE STILL IS!
Hope to blog more often from this day on! Bow. :D

Your faithfulness it reaches to the clouds
Your righteousness is like majestic mountains
And your wisdom like the depths of the seaAnd you come to me...
Filling my heart with your loving kindness
I find my peace in the shadow of your wings
I eat my fill from the abundance of your household
And I drink from the streams of rejoicing
You are my King...

But then God is just faithful! He reminded me of two verses today when I was on my way home, crying...
"...in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." -1 Thessalonians 5:18
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." -Romans 8:28
This is the difficult part. To give thanks when the matter for you is not worth thanking God for. But His word says in everything, meaning there is no exception. And yes, not this one!
As a child of God, I have to be thankful for everything because everything happens for my own good, in accordance to His good and perfect will. All I need to do is to trust in Him and take Him at His word.
And then boom!
He made me realize that this "sad news" is a wonderful opportunity for us (my husband and I) to level up on our trust in Him and for us to be amazed once again on how He will work our life as we build our family. And with that, His peace ruled in my heart supernaturally. He didn't allow myself to be eaten up by my ego and for me to be consumed by my being a "control freak of my life" because He is the One in charge, and not me.
He has proven Himself to be faithful to me, many, many times. Why would I doubt now, right?
Thank You Lord for who You are.
Thank You for Your faithfulness.
Thank You because You are trustworthy.
Thank You because I have Your word to affirm and encourage me.
Thank You Holy Spirit for helping me keep things in Your perspective.
Thank You Jesus for there is forgiveness in You, and for Your righteousness imputed upon me.
Thank You dear God, for everything that You are.

And yeah, if I really want to improve on that area, I have to write again. I guess I have to blog again. I've been out of this blog for a long time now and up until now, even with an unlimited internet access at home, I still can't figure out how am I suppose to make time for this "hobby."
But we'll see where I'll get from here.
For now, that's all folks! Happy New Year! :)
