it's been 2 years since I left the phd programme and almost 4 years since i left manila. on both occassions i had no idea what was in front of me, only that i had to leave, that my time in that season had come to an end. here, today, i am testifying that god has been so faithful during those times. and i am here, right now, lying on my bed, in west hill, having no words to adequately express the depth of gratitude and thanksgiving i feel towards god for all the great things he has done in my life.
i was chatting online with a dear friend today and she reminded me of an old blog that me, her and another friend used to collectively write back in the summer of 2005. i had almost forgotten about the blog. had a browse through it and man, it brought back some memories it did.
i love this life of mine i do. it has turned out to be way better than all i could have asked for or imagine. the reality of god and all that he is and has done for me is stronger than ever before and i am humbled by all of it.
"every single detail of my life is lined up with the will of heaven" - a line written back in 2005..hah.. it seems more real than ever it does.
