God is so good!

I should have done this last night but then I was exhausted from my trip. I was so excited to blog this as it will testify God's goodness and favor in my life. Now, I have regained all my strength coz of God's grace and power, I can blog it all out with all of my heart.

Leviticus 5:1 (NLT)
“If you are called to testify about something you have seen or that you know about, it is sinful to refuse to testify, and you will be punished for your sin."

Acts 20:24 (NLT)
"But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God."

Acts 20:24 (NIV)
"However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace."

2 Timothy 1:7-10
"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."

Testimony portion:
First, I had my alarm synchronized to 2am coz I was gonna travel for Manila yesterday. I wasn't able hear the alarm. Must've been a deep sleep. Then I believe God woke me up at 3am. The usual time I wake up the past few Sundays. Of course, I was in a hurry coz I was alarmed of the time. Funny. I shouldn't be. But then again, the bus left at 4am. Late. So I arrived in Manila at 8am. I still need to travel to my culinary school for an hour. My classes start at 9am. Our chef told us we were going to have an examination. I wasn't able to review or even open my book. I just prayed for God's favor. I was 10 minutes late. Amazingly, we didn't have an exam coz we have a different chef. I was so happy. After my class at 6pm, I still have to go to my sister's apartment. I arrived at 7pm in her apartment. I was in a hurry to catch the bus home. The moment I arrived the bus terminal and boarded the bus, the bus departed after a few minutes. God is so good! I can only testify and glorify God's goodness in my life. He has changed me in so many ways. He has improved my character. He used people like my family, boyfriend and a few, close friends who all made me accountable for my actions. Special thanks to my mom and boyfriend who have always been there and watched me grow in character, rebuke me every time, appreciate my existence and love me unconditionally.
