"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
God is in control.
While my day didn't turn out the way I planned...
- I expected Tita Ching to arrive at around 7AM but she arrived in Cubao at 4AM so I had to fetch her so much earlier than what I had set.
- I was all set to work on a specific project today but I was asked to attend an almost whole day training for a different project (yeah, a new one!).
- I was confident that I already have a powerpoint presentation for the CO Weekend talk on Saturday and that I just need to edit it a little, only to find out that Kuya Elmar has already deleted all my files (I had him re-format my laptop, he saved a back up of the files but deleted them all just last night. Perfect timing, eh?). Now I'll start from scratch.
... I know everything happened according to God's plan and purpose. :)
Borrowing the words from the Novena Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help: God never ceases to love us, that He answers all our prayers in the way that is best for us. ♥
So today, and always, I move with a quiet heart, an inward assurance that God is in control, a peaceful certainty that my life is in His hands, a deep trust in His plan and purposes, and a thankful disposition toward all that He allows. :)
Thank You God for everything! I love You too! ♥
