After more than a month of praying my earlier post, two good opportunities came to me this month. I am already inclined to say yes to the first opportunity when the second one came. I am considering both. Discerning which one is God’s will for me.
I believe that change is good now and then. It creates a new perspective of things around you. It allows you to celebrate new beginnings and reflect on the chapter you just have ended.
I already experienced a big change in my life early this year and now, again, God is asking me to jump off with Him so we can fly together. The (good) problem for me now is: TO WHERE, MY LORD?
The trip this morning got my brain cells working extra and made my hormones excited for the opportunity. Honestly, it is very enticing. I wanted to say YES the moment I was asked THE question. And yet, I know in my heart that I shouldn’t decide based on my emotions alone. It is a process that I have to go through, purifying my intentions and desires, aligning it to the will of the Lord.
I do not know why the Lord is giving me these two good opportunities NOW, but I know that whatever my choice will be, it is still good for He will bless my decision. May His will be done.

The Lord takes our prayers seriously. Make sure you’re ready for His answer.
It was just after the JMJ Rio opening mass. My two friends (a Singaporean and a Timorese) already found their flags and had a group picture with their people. We were on our way home and was wondering how can I be able to see the CFC YFL and CFC SFL sub-groups among these 3 million crowd. It’s already late, and people are in a hurry to go home. I said a prayer of hope to see them. I didn’t know how or would that be possible. But the Lord knows the deepest desires of our hearts. Just when we were going out of Copacabana, I saw Joy Aguila behind a tree. I blinked thrice to see if it’s them. I went towards their group; so happy to see them after a week in a strange new land! Praise God for them!
I thought that was it. After all the fun and drama with the CFC YFL sub-group, we headed to the Metro station to go home. While walking, I heard a familiar voice giving instructions in Tagalog… then I saw Jermer Cruz and the CFC SFL sub-group walking hurriedly! It was just a “hi-hello-ingat-happy to see you” moment for us! But still, the Lord allowed us to see each other! 3 million people. Who has ever thought that you will find your friends among these sea of people without contact or technology helping you? Only through and by God that it became possible.
And if this is possible, I know that among the hundreds of people in my life and billions of people in the world… HE will also find me – in God, asking Him the direction to me! <3
