He is in CONTROL
   After so many signs that I am asking to the Lord I feel like flipping a coin, drawing straws, or like to take a number out on a basket.... funny me! I know these kinds of methods are long been used as ways of resolving disputes. These are nothing but chance method on what to decide from my bothering mind. I read in the book of Proverbs 18:18 "Casting lots causes contentions to cease, and keeps the mighty apart."

   I know many people view all of this as nothing more than a matter of chance. But the amazing thing about what the Word of God calls "casting lots" is that the Lord is ultimately the One who controls the outcome I personally believed on that. So, what does all of this say to us as a believers? From the Christian's perspective, there is no such thing as a chance. God is either directly or indirectly involved in everything that happens to us. He can therefore be trusted and obeyed in any circumstance, because even the smallest details are under HIS control.

Things don't just happened to those who love God, 
They're planned by His own dear hand,
then molded and shaped, and timed by His clock;
things don't just happen - they're planned.. Fields

God is behind the scenes
And controls the scenes he is behind....

Be Still & Know

   Be still and know that I am God Psalm 46:10 KJV

   Be still and know..... in other words, "Be still - stop running to and fro - slow down long enough to hear God's voice. And Know - learn personally and experiently-that HE is GOD. There's so much the Lord would like to reveal in me if only I would slow down long enough to hear HIS voice.

   So many times my relationship with God is need-centered, rather than God-centered. I am so overwhelmed by my earthly desires that all I think of is, "God, I want You to do this for me, and I want it now."

   I have been so consumed with my wants, needs and own little worlds that I fail to explore the depths of God's word and discover what He is like? The bible tells us about Himself, everything is there His characteristics and all the testimonies it behold to learn to wait quietly on HIM. To obey is better than sacrifice... I remember what my Manong told me last Sunday - "you have to obey God, Star and that you will see the result and the fruits of obeying Him"... as what is written the books of 1Samuel 15:23 "Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better that sacrifice.... this passage clearly states that I needed to obey God.... and of course I'm just beginning to grasp something of His true greatness.. I'll know I will be truly amazed!

Moving ON
   Last Friday:   Oh my! I left the office hurriedly hoping that i could still beat the deadline of 1800 at the Department of Foreign affairs... unfortunately I failed to do so... I can do nothing at all but to go back there this coming Monday to claim my passport... another sacrifice on the part of my work...

   Saturday:   I did wake up so early on my morning class, not late and really glad to meet new classmates and new faces. Another course, Hotel & Restaurant Services - have to do good and leave those un-helpful thoughts of mine. Lecture in the morning and Practical exam in the afternoon. It's a time pressured practical exam of different styles of Table Napkin Folding -  Oh well, got a very good result on my exam and I did enjoyed my whole day of Saturday in that class and really can't wait for another Saturday to arrive... Went to the church after my class and attended the music ministry practise for tomorrow.

   Today:   I went to our mother church (a walk away from my office) to attend the Sunday Service. I know I needed sometime alone to contemplate and to think things over and to pray and to talk to the Father... Sunday's Message is so timely on what I have right now.. The story of Naomi - leaving the house of bread to go into a foreign land and lived there for bread.... she did lost her husband and two son's there and after that returning back to the house of bread.... sound so familiar on my situation... leaving for Dubai now does not bother me that much... I am not closing the possibility for me to go there unless the Lord tells me so...

   I'll never know what will happen, I'll never know what blessing is instored during this difficult time of my life... I'll never know how God will work into my life, but the is one thing that I am so sure of the LOrd never breaks a promise...
