Marlon and I are truly blessed to be a part of this community – yes we have, and continue to go through ups and downs, moments of weaknesses and harassments. But the great opportunities, blessings and wonderful, awesomeness of God brightens, sheds light, and places all of these things in perspective.
We had our Christian Life Program last year, started on April 27 and graduated July 6. We had our Covenant Orientation 3 months later and our Marriage Enrichment 1 this March. We were called to early service – Yes, Lord, Thank You, Lord! – as we were called to become kids coordinators for our unit and members of our chapter’s music ministry.
But that wasn’t enough, God called us to serve further, in Corinthians music ministry of our cluster and now as facilitators for a new Christian Life Program! Ang galing Nyo, Lord, salamat po, salamat!
Father God, in Your infinite goodness, greatness, and wisdom, You know best. You brought us to where we are because of Your majesty, because of Your grace, because it is Your Will! Help us Father, that we will not seek to question, rather, that we may fully, wholly, faithfully and continually trust and accept Your challenges. Allow us to remain in Your presence. Father, fill us with Your most Holy Spirit. Let us seek comfort, consolation and strength from Your most awesome sacrifice, Your Son, Jesus Christ. Father, we trust in You. We Love You. We Adore You. We Serve You. To You be all Praise and Glory. Amen.
This is a beautiful piece by an unknown author. God bless.
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus’ arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
Pray to trust our Father’s Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth–
You shall rest in Jesus’ land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
