When Life Gives

LEMONS, make lemon bars!

It’s been a while since my last post. I have been dealing with something that certainly has affected my peace of mind. I pray every waking hour because I know this thing is beyond my capacity. I spend most mornings weeping because it’s just so hard. But then I was reminded one day about that one verse in the New Testament,

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” 

Hebrews 11:1 – niv-

Truly a profound verse. God has once again surprised me with HIS wonders. Revelations after revelations. My experience is so humbling. One thing was clear, all my bosses love me! Both the past and the present were trying to help me resolve my current predicament. They were both gracious. I can’t believe that despite my leaving my old boss, he was there to my rescue and my current boss was just making things happen for me. I underestimated the favor I am entitled to. God has been so good. He has used all these people to show me love.

A quick update about our Philippine homes, typhoon Ulysses has flooded our home in Antipolo. It has also flooded our family residence in Pampanga. For the first time in history, water has gotten inside my childhood home. I have lived there for almost my entire childhood (7-15 years old) and I have never experienced being flooded, not inside our home at least. When Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the 90s, we were also spared from the lahar flow. I believe 5 dams were opened all at the same time causing such heavy flood however, it makes me wonder, really? Why hasn’t it happened before? I guess things really change after 20 plus years.

Nevertheless, I am grateful that we’re safe. I am thankful that people were able to manage right after. But I request everyone to pray for those who have lost their homes, their loved ones and their livelihoods. May GOD bless us all.

    1. Me too. I have lemon bars on my bedside right now because I discovered BHB that allows me to eat carbs without breaking ketosis.

      I am still not 100 ok, but definitely getting there. Remember what I said before that God has been taking it all out one by one, He is on process on the last one but still not complete. I can breathe enough to be able to visit WP again. I cannot open the site at all because I am such a downer these days.

      Thank God! Malapit na matapos. I am getting so near the end of this and I can’t wait!

      My problems were so big that I didn’t even mind how much water has come inside our home. But realizing how the floods have damaged a lot of properties esp. in Cagayan, I
      am heartbroken for them and totally felt so guilty for feeling that I am carrying the weight of the world… while others have lost their homes and some have lost their loved ones.
