Proverbs 15:30, "A cheerful look brings joy to the heart and good news gives health to the bones."
"When you put your faith in others, you can help them reach their potential. And you become an important influencer in their lives."

Flying into a storm is a dangerous experience. The temptaion is to fly by our own instincts, or, as aviators say, "by the seat of your pants." But as any pilot will tell you, that's a prescription for disaster. If you rely on your feelings and instinct, you become disorientated, thinking that the plan is going up when it's actually going down. Thankfully, the instrument panel is set to magnetic north and can be trusted every time. Letting your instruments guide you, even when it feels like they're wrong, helps ensure safety in the storm.

We all face storms that threaten to confuse and disorient us. It may be a call from a doctor's office, friend who has betrayed you, or a chattered dream. Those are the times to be especially careful. When you are blinded by life's disappointments, don't trust your instincts. FLying by the seat of your pants in the storms of life can lead to despair, confusion, and vengeful responses that make matters worse. God wants to guide you, and His Word is packed with wisdom and insights for living. His "Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path" (Ps 119:105). Where He leads is always right!

SECRET BLESSINGS ... Back from Mission

My team and I were on our way back from our mission trip to the Philippines. We had taken my car and drove it back from KK to BSB. The whole journey was to only take us 7 hours maximum. Well, on the way back my car decided to fail on us. I was behind the wheel of my car and suddenly the lights on the dashboards began to flicker randomly and without any further warnings the engine stalled.

The blessing however came soon after. I hadn't been back to visit my grandmother for a long time. To be precise, it was at least 15 years. We are now stranded on the side of the road not sure how we could get help. I called my mother and she began contacting her relatives close to the area and finally after waiting to close to 3 hours, my uncle came from Lawas and took us to my grandmother's. The blessing is the fact that if my car hadn't broken down along the way, I would not have visited my grandmother and cousins. It was a costly break down but that's a story in itself.

I just want to praise the Lord for He has watched over us!

I'm not very good at telling the story here in the blog due to my limitation of creative writing. So, I think I'll just post a picture of my grandmother and family.
