Have you ever had one of those days where nothing all that monumental happens, but by the end of it you have no idea who you are or what the heck you are doing with your life? Do you ever have one of those days? -Robin (HIMYM)

Lately I’ve been contemplating whether I made the right decision or not. I keep on asking myself, “Is this worth the try? The effort? Or am I just wasting time and forgetting my priorities? Am I going to benefit something out of this?” I honestly can’t answer my own question.

“You get to lose some in order to gain some,” I remind myself always. But what if I’m losing more than what I gain? I feel like I’m missing a lot of opportunities out there just because of one decision. Such a bad decision maker and an impulsive person I am.

So here’s something nice I just read. Something for me and you to remember:

Sometimes our circumstances seem to come about by chance. We think, If I had made this decision instead of that decision, my life would be different. Or, If I’d been here instead of there, this wouldn’t have happened. While we cannot use this as an excuse for making poor decisions, we can have the confidence that nothing happens by chance. Take care of your responsibilities in a way that honors God, and He will work out His plan through you.

If you are struggling with the “what ifs” of life, put them aside. Be assured that God is working out His plan for you, and it won’t be by chance.

Since God is in charge, nothing is by chance.

Not by Chance by Woodrow Kroll

Things are bound to happen this way. Even if I thought that I made the wrong decision, still, He will lead me to victory. He will make a way out. I might belittle myself and think that I can’t make it because of my abilities, but He believes in me a lot lot more than I believe in myself. He sees more than what I see in me, and He knows that what He’s given me is enough to make something big.

God doesn’t require more than what we have. We just have to press on, do things with all our might, and let Him bless it.

And I quote MAE’s Skyline Drive, “Never giving up, always seeking light, we must always try, try with all our might.”

Icecream

Ice cream would be really nice now.. But it sucks that I had to be allergic to milk.

Reflecting on the things that happened to me on the first two months of the year, I can say that I am really stepping out of my comfort zone. Trials came and tried to knock me down, but here I am, standing firm because of His grace.

I don’t know if this is being shallow or what.. But I never really imagined myself away from sweets (ice cream, RSCs, baked goods) and cheese and the sort. Not to eat foods containing milk is really out of my cz. Albeit the hardship of choosing smartly what to eat (my diet’s a bit costly now, I had to avoid processed food as well and eat real food), I am still thankful that I got to know my allergies sooner. This could be a wake up call for me, it’s about time that I take GOOD care of myself. I’ve been so sickly lately and obviously it’s all because of my unhealthy lifestyle.

I believe things are happening for the fulfillment of His plan, for His glory. I may not understand it now, but I will soon.
