Yes. It’s my 22nd birthday. And I am so grateful for it.
Just 5 years ago (or even a week ago), I didn’t even know what I’ll be today. I didn’t know that today, I’ll be attending 2 subjects as I’m doing my Masters in Applied Math. I didn’t know that I’ll be so anxious all throughout the day while waiting for the result of my scholarship application. I didn’t know that I’ll be eating at The Alley by Vikings in UP Town with my brother. I wasn’t even sure if I’ll be able to reach today.
But God knows.
He knew even from the start of eternity. He planned everything, each of today’s event, He already has written it on my life, even before I was born.
And all throughout, He provided.
More than the finances, He provided comfort, peace, wisdom, and love. He provided me with His presence in every step. What can I expect from our unlimited, ultimate provider?
And I can’t even thank Him enough. And the people that He sent for me. And the people whom He sent me for. My heart is so grateful that there’s no words to put it. I just know I am blessed.
At the beginning of this week, I was able to receive the book Letters of Solana by Jonalyn San Diego. Reading itself is a blessing for me. There were a lot of things that I realized that I needed to be, to do, and to strive for.
Truly, God gives wisdom to those who fear Him.
This day, the letter from a friend from Australia arrived. Tell me it’s not God who planned it. That letter was sent 2 months ago. It’s one of a testimony of God’s perfect timing and I still even can’t comprehend it.
Truly, God’s perfect timing blesses us so much more than the comfort from our mind’s approximation of things.
During noon, a package arrived in the apartment. Inside were a lot of stuff. One is a watch. Honestly, I have been planning to buy myself a watch because it’s hard for me to track time while in class (cause it’s really disrespectful to pull out a phone while your professor is discussing in class). Yet God has made a way.
Truly, there is blessing in obedience. These are some of little things that may seem so subtle.
Later on this day, me and my brother went to pig out at The Alley by Vikings. Tasting different kinds of food and also was being able to celebrate it with some strangers. HAHA. It as really so much fun.
Oh strangers. How little did they know about what other people’s businesses are, yet they gladly and joyfully celebrate with you with all the smiles on their faces. I just know God brought them to be part of this wonderful day. They didn’t know how their actions made people so happy.
And more than those blessings, I hope to live a life that’s honorable in His eyes.
As He has been so faithful in my life, I believe that He will still remain faithful in the next days and years.
Truly, He is faithful.
