I am Up for the Challenge

I had just received another unpleasant news today from a loved one. It is not directly for me but in a way it will slightly affect our routine and a little major in our way of life. I know with that news there will be a major change. There are minor setbacks and good things too (I guess) that will happen in our everyday living. I don't know if it's really a sad or bad one or we just don't want this scenario to take place. We already discussed this before and finally it is official. The funny thing is that, it was unexpected because initially it was a great buzz in favor of us. But then it turned out it is the other way around. How fate ridicules us and fate tests our faith. No one really knows but God alone.

I haven't thought too much of this yet. I don't wanna divulge it and lay the details too much. But to give you a little hint of what we are going to get through just yet.. you know when there's this thing that you don't want to happen but then it really happens for real? Get it? What will you do? My initial reaction was I felt sadness because it is not the way I wanted it to be. But then, I am positive enough that there are better plans God has in store. That makes me hold on to my faith. God's promise will never fail. I told my husband, God has another plan for us. We don't know what it is but He knows it is for the best, for our good. Everyday is a living testimony that God's presence is always with us. Good or bad, it doesn't matter. God works in mysterious ways remember. What's important and that we should bear in our mind and heart that God doesn't want anything bad to happen on us. Yes, maybe for a while it is uncomfortable and unlikely. But hey, a little sacrifice doesn't hurt too much like what our God did to save us. He died on the cross for the love of us.

My dear Lord, I am up for this turning point you gave to us. Yes, I am sad but I believe in your plans and ways. You know what is best for us. And with that alone I am comforted and still. And yes, I may feel a bit worried but knowing that your ways are not ours, then it's safe to safe we are okay in Your hands.

  2. Hi Donna! I might not now the whole story but I get what you're going through. I think God made you ready for thos ordeal because you actually though about this happening. It's God's way of preparing you for this, in my opinion. And yes, there's always a reason behind everything that is happening. :)

    I followed your blog! I miss blogs with real thoughts and feelings. :)

    1. Hi Ishna! Thanks for dropping a thought. I just encountered your blog yesterday and added you right away in my list. I got hooked up instantly,,hehehehe...

      I'm not expecting to happen it actually but at the back of my mind I was thinking what if. But I never thought thoroughly of that "what if" to happen. Somehow me and my husband prepared ourselves to face it squarely and just decide and see what happens in a couple of weeks or months. Well, yeah, it's quite challenging in a few weeks time. But I hope nothing worst will happen. We'll pray that will embrace the challenge positively and with open-minds and with God's mercy and grace.

  3. This is a beautiful post. Very real, very human, no pretentions but still very positive. I hope you continue to find God's purpose and plan for all the trials. That's how we can survive with the challenges around :)
