You know what, beloved, Someone appreciates you. Someone is eternally rooting for you. You may not see Him, but He sees everything you do. He notices even all the little things. It is from Him that the affirmation, appreciation and recognition you need comes.
You can strive all your life to maintain the applause that other people around you gives you, but you will get tired. At the end of a day, you won’t be satisfied. Why? It’s because you know in your heart that these people will not stay as they are unless you do something more, something bigger, something grander for each new day. And you know that you can only do so much.
But there’s Someone who appreciates you and cherishes you no matter what you do. It’s God. He is eternally pleased with you. He will never get angry. He will never tell you, “That’s all you can do?! You do realize that you’ve been a Christian for a long time, right?” No, He’ll never say that. Like a Father, He is delighted with His children.
Why, you say? It’s because Jesus has lived the life that we should have and couldn’t live. It’s because Jesus’ righteousness has been imputed on us. That’s why God is pleased with us. And He loves you. He appreciates you. He is your audience. You don’t think someone really sees your value and worth, but He does. He already knew how valuable you are before you started trying to work for it.

I haven’t been on Tumblr a lot at all lately; I apologize for that. I was caught up with the preparations for my coming back to school and other issues. Now that the first week of classes is over, thankfully, I can post again as often as I could. :) I missed Tumblr a lot. I missed you guys a lot.

Anyway, school has been better than I had been expecting. Everyday, I learn a lot from talking to people, listening to my professors, or by just observing. I always remind myself to see and taste God’s goodness to me in every moment, and I learn from it. Every day is a reminder that I stand only on the solid foundation of His love, that I move by His power, and I function because of His grace. 

This semester is not going to be simple and easy. There will be stepping out of comfort zones, meeting challenges, and venturing into new levels, but God’s got me. We are both in this together. I know that He is the reason why I am in university at all, and I know that He finishes what He started.

I believe that it’s the same with you. I may be in university, and you may be at home or work or anywhere at all, but one thing’s the same, beloved: We all have the God of the Universe for us, with us, and in us. That’s what matters.

Whatever our needs may be, according to Matthew 6, God will provide. He is our Father who is a million times much greater than our fathers here on earth and He knows and cares about all our needs. He understands them. He is able to provide far more than our wildest imagination can ever dare think of Him.
Don’t worry and have confidence in Him. Your vision is coming. God gives grace for every new challenge, trial and obstacle that we face.In times of doubt, remember what Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 3. God is will provide, not because He pities us, or we did good, but simply because He loves us. Our worries tend to drive us away from God’s love, but if we stand on God’s love for us, our worries loses their power and dissipates.
So be rooted in God’s love. This can only be possible by resting and focusing on Him. His love is so wide, so long, so high, so deep— definitely bigger than enough to cover your worries and fears. His love will keep you strong. He, in His great love, will never abandon you. God’s love for you is so big, beloved, that your entire time here in work will never be enough to see all of it.

Things I’m thankful to Abba for:

  1. My grades. They are definitely much, much more than what I deserved, expected and worked for. This could only be grace.
  2. My schedule for this semester. I’ve been given slots to the subjects I need to take. Also, I have more free time, which I did not have last semester.
  3. His love for me and my family.
  4. His on-time and always sufficient  provisions.
  5. The rain tonight.
  6. His compassion.
  7. The refuge that I have in Him.
  8. The future He has secured for me.

I had been worrying about many things during the start of this vacation, and now Papa Daddy is making me realize that He had it all together right from the start. He had been making ways for me from the beginning. I’m so amazed.

So thankful to God for many things that had happened that I could not sleep yet.

Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Mark 11:24

The Lord is our Burden-Bearer, and on Him we must lay every care.

God says, in effect, ‘Be careful of nothing, but make your requests known to Me, and I will attend to them all.’

Still, give thanks to God, for He is not a God who does things randomly. In every situation, He acts accordingly to promote you and bring you to a ‘better good.’ He does not leave you stuck in your troubles.

Remember that God will never promise anything that He is not able to do. He would not have started His good work in you if He will not finish it. Your God is good and faithful. He is the very definition of consistency. You may be believing in things that you cannot see, but because this faith is anchored in Him, it will surely bear fruit, beloved.
