Bible Verse #3: Trusting the Lord


I didn't realize that my last entry here was already fifteen days ago. Time passed by so quickly because I was (and I always am) busy accomplishing my work and domestic duties. But I am not complaining. I am the kind of person who always look at the brighter side of things. I always try to justify things that come my way.

Take for example my job. Even though I am so overwhelmed by the stress and pressure I am going through every workday, I still love it. As I've mentioned here, I am expected to finish at least three projects in one day. They can be one logo design + one brochure design + one revision of an existing layout, depending on the clients' requirements. Just yesterday, I finished two logo designs of a medical company, one office form layout, one bookstore pop up, and some revisions on a coffee shop's vehicle wrap which I submitted the day before. THOSE ARE TOO MUCH.

As much as I want to complain, I cannot. I just remember to be grateful for this job because it gets my creative juices flowing. I earn from doing what I love. And I know God gave me that job for a purpose. I only have to trust Him and acknowledge His guidance. Thank you, Lord.

Hi Beth,

I'm happy for you that you have work that hones your skills and talents especially in this country where only limited opportunities are open for women. Take me as an example, I am an accountant by profession but mostly, female accountant positions here are under Saudization. But of course i have no regrets, God still blesses me with a good job.

I also admire your positive attitude that despite of all the odds, you just count God's bountiful blessings and trust His heart. That's the difference of people like you having God in their life.

I wanna share with you my favorite verse in the Bible, my life verse actually found in Jeremiah 29:11 that says, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

I always put trust in this verse, what a wonderful promise of God. Now I remember during the time when my husband plans to bring us here, of course I am happy but I have also a lot of fears and hesitations. But i just hold on to this verse, I trust God that His plans for me is not to harm me but to prosper me. Now I can testify that God is so true and faithful to His promises.

God bless Beth! Have a nice day!

Josie

Hi Josie,
Thanks for this meaningful comment. I appreciate that you take time to share what God is doing in your life, too.

As for our coming here naman, I had no hesitations. For I know being together as a family is more important. I had a little bit fear because of the news I always hear about this country. But I know God will take care of us.

Have a nice day, Josie! I appreciate your dropping by to read my blog.

Star City, Riyadh

It's the start of Gabby and Sunday's vacation! And I'm back to the things that I always take for granted: reading and blogging. I've always looked forward to posting here but life has been a whirlwind for the past months. Gabby graduated from primary school and will be in high school this June. Yes, you read it right. I now have a high school kid. How time flies! I got so sick after that and was rushed to the ER and was given antibacterial medicines intravenously. But now, I'm back and raring to blog again.

Almarai Dairy Farm and Factory Visit

Whenever I chat with my friend based in Abu Dhabi, I always ask her what she will cook for an upcoming occasion, and she would promptly send snapshots of dishes I only dream of cooking. And when I posted the photo of my husband and me on my Facebook account, with a short "A trip to Almarai Dairy Farm" caption, she later on commented that she and her partner like Almarai products especially the yoghurt and fresh milk. That's when I realized that although we're miles apart, my friend and I still have something in common: we enjoy the same brand of milk and juice drinks.

A Day in Baher Villas, Al Khobar

The school opened last June and the kids are now busy studying, doing homework and projects. I'm happy that I wouldn't have to think of things for my kids to do just like what I've said here. My kids love to go to beaches on their vacations from school. And because we didn't go to the Philippines this year, Fred and I thought of bringing them to a beach resort here to bust their boredom and change their environment even for just a day or two.
