Praise The Lord who always provides!
As we travel back to Tokyo and Atlanta, I thank you for making this trip a success. We were able to secure the safety, comfort, and happiness of our kids while we follow your will and return to Guam/Manila. I pray for continued strength in not letting the rumors, gossip and ill will of others take away from the blessings you have shown me. You are a faithful God and have afforded me opportunities I do not deserve! I do not know why i was chosen but i am eternally grateful that i am yours.
As the time approaches and people begin to talk, I am getting more nervous. I must stop and ask myself:
Why do I care what you think?
From Moses to Noah, Abraham to Job; the bible is full role models who were blessed by God and did not listen to conventional wisdom. I am no where near these men but I can still try to act like them!
I do not mean for this to come off as arrogant and I certainly do not call myself self righteous. I am just in a point in my life where I no longer care about the opinions of others. No longer will I care about what others say. I am not here to please you. I am here to please my GOD.
In Jesus name I pray, amen
