Celebrate your small wins!

You will reap what you sow, for every cause there is an effect.

God is so good. He sustains me in this season. You know what, it is so hard actually to pursue our dreams, right? Indeed, it is true there are no shortcuts in life, we all need to go along the process. The mundane and tough days , the huhuhuhuhuh days before our hahhahahha days.

I am so happy not because I did all the work to finish my studies but I clearly see how God works during the times that I didn't want to continue, the people who showed up in trying times, they supported me in many ways, particularly my parents, who never even dare to complain while I'm still figuring out my adulthood and my sister who supported me in many ways though we fight at times. My advisers, good friends, who opened their homes as always and give me motivations, tampal, and many other stuff. Their names are worth mentioning, "ate tin and ate aiza." My life lessons came from them too. I am beyond blessed because God remains faithful. I know I'm still in the chapter 2 of my story and I have many things to learn in life, I don't know many things here but I can testify that God is good and He never leaves His children.

The last season was full of breaking, lonely days and nights. I was struggling with a lot of things and I barely see hope and writing journals had been the only resort so I can breathe and still enjoy life even if my lowest. I am grateful 'cause I know I am so far from my dreams, the dreams that He planted into my heart since then but I know He will make them come true and even if not He still remains faithful and I will trust Him even if life is uncertain.

I delayed a lot of wants so I can fund my dream and it's all worth it. So if you are in pursuit of your studies and you need to delay your wants and desires just to save and to fund your dreams, it's okay, material things get broken and destroyed easily. So if you are entering into a new season of your life "college life" pursue your studies and you will learn valuable lessons in life. Pursue what ignites your soul and you don't need to know what's coming up next, just take it one step at time, it's not always raining but the sun is always rising so His grace. Let God be the center of everything you are doing. Give your best for Him, be faithful in the little things and celebrate every small wins! Surely, the Lord sees all your effort. I am glad that you guys are finding inspiration in my journals. I hope it always lead you back to the source of everything- Jesus.

My small wins, I can buy fruit shake already in Lucban. Pramis sulit ang 45 petot ninyo! And sa biyaya ni Lord, ga-graduate na ang ateee ninyo. Hehehehhe thankee for reading my journals at sa mga bibili ng book. My prayer, Lord kapag po ba may master's na, pede ng magmister? Charing HAHAHHA. May process nga pala. Kaya kung grade 8 ka pa lang, isipin mo muna malapit ka ng mag-grade 9. Galingan mo dun! Rooting for you my journal buddies out there!

My heart is full of thanksgiving!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
