It’s been a while…
Hello blog! I’m back! It’s been a looong while (I know) but thanks to today’s turn around of events I decided to visit my blog site and BLOG! I don’t even have a title for this entry yet but we’ll see at the end of this blog if I could come up with something nice and catchy. 🙂
At the start of this year, we wrote in our journals as part of our yearly goals that we will start a small business. It was just 10 months ago but those months of waiting seemed like forever (I’ve become impatient! Shame on me.) We thought that we’d be able to start last August and then September but nothing happened and then finally in October it happened. Never thought it was possible but then “it happened”. God reminded me not to rush on anything, when the time is right, it will happen in His perfect time. God can open doors no man can shut.
I laughed at myself for wanting things to happen in an instant (there goes my millennial mentality!) God really knows when the right time is, his most perfect time. In waiting, our attitude is being changed.
- Patience for one (I improved on this one big time!)
- Humility (giving back the glory to God)
- Trust (God is at work – BTS!)
- Proactive waiting (being productive while waiting for it to happen)
Waiting changed me as a person. It wasn’t fun waiting but it was worth it and so today we started our small business at Ayala Center Cebu. It’s a food booth filled with yummy snacks that the whole family can enjoy. This is something I don’t want to miss on writing about, it’s an answered prayer and surely I will not keep silent about the goodness of God to me and my family.
This marks another milestone, a new season, a new beginning for me, Rocky and Paul. God can answer prayers, He is the dream giver and He makes all things possible in His time. Our achievements doesn’t come from the north, south, east or west; it comes from God. If God wants to set us somewhere at a specific time and place, He’ll do it. God knows where to find us when He wants to elevate and put his people in a specific place. Keep on trusting his ultimate plans.
Deuteronomy 8:18a “But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth.”
