Forever Grateful for 2016

It has literally been ages since this site has been updated.

I must say, ….”life indeed got in the way somehow..” So many things have happened, so many things have come and gone.

Our daily lives go on….much like the daily flow of traffic…but there is a Sovereign God who oversees everything



Yes, we are a bit older,  gained a few pounds and rolls of flab here and there, and we do have some extra wrinkles and facial lines where there wasn’t any before.  And yes, traffic in Metro Manila is still challenging.

But no matter what changes we go through,the Word of God remains the same.  How comforting is that?  In the midst of realities where loyalties shift, and economies rise and fall, God and His Word remains faithful and unchanging.

Psalm 139

For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.

Did we ever realize the extent of how awesome this is?  Every move I make is known by my heavenly Father.  He is completely and utterly aware of what is going on, not just with what’s around me but that of every thought I make, whether they are positive or not.  I can never be hidden from God’s sight.  He is completely aware of my every joy, pain, heartache and victory.

Whatever 2016 will remind me of, I will always tell myself that God remains Sovereign in all things.  I may not completely understand why, but since His Word tells me He is, I choose to believe His hand is in everything that I am experiencing.

Thank you Lord, because Your love endures forever! You are faithful! You are Sovereign! My life is in Your hands!

For 2017, I will endeavor to walk with Him and share the precious thoughts of His love.
