We all go through disappointments, setbacks and things that we don’t understand. Maybe you prayed for a loved one, but they didn’t get well. Or maybe you worked hard for a promotion, but you didn’t get it. You stood in faith for a relationship, but it didn’t work out. One of the best things you can do is release it. Let it go. Don’t dwell on it anymore. If you go around wondering why things didn’t work out, all that will do is lead to bitterness, resentment and self-pity. Before long, you’ll be blaming others, blaming yourself, or even God. You may not understand what happened. It may not have been fair. But when you release it, it’s an act of your faith. You’re saying, “God, I trust You. I know You’re in control. And even though it didn’t work out my way, You said, ‘All things are going to work together for my good.’ So I believe You still have something good in my future.”
There is power in letting go of the past and the frustration of trying to figure everything out. When you release your questions, you are saying, “God, You are in control. I trust You.” And when you put your hope in God, that’s when He can heal your heart and lead you forward into victory.
When unexpected things happen — trials, difficulty or tragedy — the enemy sends a whirlwind of fear to try to shake our faith and steal our focus. His goal is to take our eyes off of God and cause us to feel overwhelmed by circumstances. But if we will choose to stay focused on the love of God, if we choose to meditate on His goodness, the truth will set us free from fear and ground our hearts in confidence.
Today, know that God loves you perfectly. He is a good God. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that His plans for us are for good. He has thoughts of peace, not for evil. He wants to give you a future and hope. Anytime thoughts of fear come, replace them with words of love. Just declare, “Thank You, God, for loving me. Thank You for leading me into peace. Thank You for hope for my future.” As you meditate on His love and goodness, you’ll feel faith rise up in your heart. You’ll feel hope, you’ll feel strength, and you’ll feel empowered to move forward in the good path He has prepared for you.
Three words that I want to hear from the person who loves me because it’s not the right time to be in a relationship with him.
There are some guys who said this to me, they did wait but then it didn’t last. They all found another girl.
I wish someday there would be someone who’ll say this to me…
"I’ll wait for you. No matter how long it is, it doesn’t matter because you are worth the wait." :)
Welcome to the inside of Aileen’s brain.
Aileen’s got her eye on you.
Ilang days after that yung isa ko namang friend ang aalis, pupunta syang America at dun na sya titira for good. Nung araw na aalis na sya, nung umaga eh sinundo ako nung mga katropa ko para makabonding namin for the last time yung kaibigan namin ang kaso wala ako nun sa bahay kasi may inaasikaso ako dun sa school na papasukan ko, maaga naman akong natapos nun so nagkaroon ako nang pag-asa na baka makahabol pa ako at makapagpaalam sa kanya nang maayos kaso malas siguro talaga ako kasi nung papasok nako sa brgy. namin sya namang papalabas ng van na maghahatid sa kanya sa airport so ayun nadepressed ako nun kasi walang kasiguraduhan na makakabalik pa sya at for the nth time may nadisappoint na naman akong kaibigan ko. Feeling ko mas lalong napalayo ako hindi lang sa dalawang katropa kong umalis kundi pati na rin sa iba kong katropa kasi wala ako palagi, laging busy or something . Napaka-wala kong kwentang kaibigan. Haaaay :(
So marami akong kaibigan kasi nga medyo baliw ako tapos chismosa kaya kung saan may nagkukumpulan lapit kaagad ako at makiki-usyoso. Yung tipong feeling close pero konti lang. Haha. So may tropa ako sa school, meron din dito sa lugar namin. Meron din akong best friends both sa school and dito rin samin. Kaso pag may tambay yung mga BF ko dito samin lagi akong missing in action it’s either busy ako or ayaw ko lang lumabas. One time yung isa kong katropa eh aalis na kasi mag-aaral sa malayong lugar at minsan lang sya makakauwi siguro mga twice a year lang. Inimbitahan nya ko na umattend ng debut ng ate nya, yun na daw yung last bonding namin bago sya umalis ang kaso nung time na yun nagpapagaling ako kasi nasemplang ako nun at matindi yung sugat ko at hirap akong maglakad so ayun di ako nakapunta. Pero actually kaya ko naman kaso ayaw ko lang, ewan may tendency kasi minsan na mag-inarte ako so ayun. Feeling ko nadisappoint ko sya :(
It’s comforting to know that the same God that’s in control of the good times of life is still in control in the tough times of life. Our difficulties are not a surprise to Him. God will not allow a storm unless He has a divine purpose for it.
Romans 8:28 promises us, “That in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (NIV) God will direct the winds of the storm to blow you where He wants you to go. We see storms as being negative, but God uses the storm to move you from point A to point B. The winds may be strong, the circumstances may look bad, but those winds will blow you to a new level of your destiny.
