TT : God reigns in 2010

Posted on
Yes, a few hours from now ( pacific time) 2009 will close its final curtain. 2009 is a very difficult time for me… February 2009, I lost the most dearest person in my life– my mom. The world turned upside down then. For the first three months, I have sleepless nights … and painful sleeps. Due to grief and stress, I was sick and found to have GERD ( acid reflux). Until now I am under medication.

Amidst all these, God is still worthy to be praised! Is God good only in good times? Definitely not! For He is good all the time. Everything worked together for good! Through my moms death , we became closer as a family. My brother who is a medical doctor transferred residency in our city and his whole family came to know the Lord. They never missed a Sunday Service from our church. Another blessing this year is the Full Academic Scholarship of my Son in High School. We were unloaded with a big amount of school tuition fees. I thanked God for my hubby who is always by my side. He’s the sweetest and the most loving person I have ever known. He loves me unconditionally. I lost my mama… but I became more closer to my in-laws. My mother’s love were made tangible by their presence.

Indeed there are always 2 sides of a coin. The pain and hardship in life oftentimes are overcome with joy.There is still hope for a new and better 2010. I know this year will be a fruitful and blessed year for us…. For God will never leave nor forsake us. GOD REIGNS IN 2010!

  5. Hi Grace. Condolence for the lost of your Mom.

    Good to know that you are covering as well as with your acid reflux.

    May 2010 bring your family even closer and your aspirations may come true as well.

    Happy New Year Grace!

  6. What a beautiful perspective of life you shared. I know what it's like to lose your mom as mine died almost five years ago. I still miss her so much to this day. But the pain lessens with time but the memories do not. I am sorry to hear of your loss BUT amazed at how the Lord worked in the midst of these circumstances.

    I get chills every time I hear of a new believer! Yay God!!!!

    And how special that you've become closer to your in-laws. I found that my mother-in-law and I are closer too since my mom died.

    God is at work. I pray that 2010 will be a year to anticipate what God will do in your life. You have a thankful heart.
