Seek Him with all your heart6:39 AM
i was supposed to post a blog last night but due to tiredness, i fell asleep right away when i lay down in my bed. my religious organization spent our whole Sabbath in our place and wonderful is an understatement for my experience.
Every Sabbath is unique to me. I have different lessons learned and different story of blessedness to share. And this one's worth sharing. But i wont go any further to details.
i asked God some months ago about faith experiences. I was envious those times of other people's testimony of how God.has led there lives. So I asked Him if He can also give me those kind of situations. I thought it was that easy that time. I forgot that when He wants us to learn a lesson, there are risks- either it will be in a good way or not-so-good way. I was including that prayer in my prayers twice or thrice then forgot about it. Then yesterday came and all realization sank in to me. While having a sharing moment with the president of the group, I remembered so well every detail in my life of how God has been working. From that very time and scene when my father met my mother until this current episode of my life, God has been always in control. Then suddenly, my prayer months ago hit my memory lane and I asked myself, why do I still ask God to prove Himself to me? When all along He have proven, with all the necessary evidences, His goodness in my life? That although there are many times, i admit, that I do not put God in the first of my everything, still He gives me many reasons to make Him my first.
Jeremiah 29: 11 does not only tell us to trust Him because He has the best plans in our life but if we continue reading until verse 14, it says that if we only call and pray unto Him, He will answer and if we shall seek and find Him with all our heart, we will find Him. I was thankful that He answered my prayer in a good way. But, I don't know, maybe He will still let me experience another thing which will be a good testimony of faith to others. And I don't recognize myself. Because all along, it was Jesus who has been working- my Redeemer and Friend.
