One good deed on a Monday.

I’m technically on top of the National Congress project. Most of my time at work is devoted to minding how the Congress will run (hands on)-—from invitations, registration and fees, program, speakers, to funding. Pwew, this is no easy job. Anyway, I had to work on the budget with one of our donors. There’s been misunderstanding which resulted in a drop of the grant to half the amount. Oh my! This will certainly cause drastic effect on my project. I talked to the coordinator and clarified things and Ola! By the grace of God, I was able to pin down the proposed amount. It was approved! YES! I feel so accomplished! Thank you Lord for a good Monday.

A butterfly outside my window…

I came from the province this morning. I had to take the late morning ride for two reasons: (1) it was raining cats and dogs since dawn; and (2) the influx of commuters on a Monday will definitely worsen my not-so-well body (colds with cough make me weak). I came to the office not until 10:30 am. I warned them anyway.

Read an email from Sir Keith. Thanks. I surely wish to see you and Ms. Patty in person soon. May the Lord allow us to meet.

I was blessed by the way Aidz wrote his newest entry. Positive attitude. Now I’m more convinced that he likes Kris’ DEAL or NO DEAL. While pondering on this insight, I looked at the window and saw a little white butterfly outside. This is the start. I know it will be a great day.

The Power of Prayer

Ask and it shall be given…Matthew 7:7

Last night, I prayed for this one particular item and the Lord has granted my request.

I just came from the lion’s den and survived it. Figuratively, that is! I was on a meeting this morning with the pool of experts so-to-speak but more of ‘powerful people trying to rule my professional life’. For the last six months, this project on citizenship had caused me not so little worries; to certain extent brought stress and almost burn out in my work. Today, we had another meeting and it seemed to me that this will be my ‘grilling moment all the more’ as the day of the Congress approaches, where all questions will be thrown at this poor junior staff amidst a group of old bosses. And so I prayed that the Lord would make things easy on me today; that they will see my side of the story, how things are running with the project and that this is no easy task at all. Praise God! It all turned out favorably for me. Now I can work with confidence and they will no longer harass me. Now I just pray that the Lord will bless this project and that we meet the target outputs! Please Lord!

I just want to give glory and thanks to the Almighty God who has always been my strength and salvation. Truly, He’s always on our side. Thank you, Jesus!

Monday Tips

The deepest level of worship is praising God inspite of pain, thanking God during trial, trusting God when tempted, and loving Him when He seems distant.

God’s blessings come as a surprise but how you receive depends on how much your heart believes…may you be blessed beyond what you expect.

Psalm 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible while Psalm 119 is the longest. Psalm 118 is in the center of the Bible. There are 594 chapters before Psalm 118 and 594 chapters after that. 594+594=118. And what’s at the center of the Bible? Psalm 118:8 “IT IS BETTER TO TAKE REFUGE IN THE LORD THAN TO TRUST MAN.”
