I’m just so overwhelmed and I need to share this with you guys. As what the title of this post says the secret to staying blessed, before I unlock that, let me first share this with you, we have good news, great news & amazing news! I’m so overwhelmed because we have received these things in the last 10 days.
THE GOOD NEWS
We have received the Title Deed of the land investment that Peter and I made in June, Peter has blogged about it 2 weeks back, you can read it <here>. It’s official, we have it under our name! Yey! We thought it will take some more time because there’s a lot of process that needs to be done, but it came so quickly. So we just have to wait for sometime until the land matures and get another investment or re-invest this one to something else. I’m so happy because this is our first major investment as a couple. I’m even more amazed that GOD has enabled us to invest at a very early stage in our marriage. So Yey!!! 🙂
THE GREAT NEWS
Some of you know that Peter has moved to his current job just May last year, he was recruited by his former customer for 6 years, who is now Peter’s immediate boss. This is another testimony to tell and it proves that if you are good at work and you have integrity in the way you deal with customers, people will run after you for employment. I’m glad to say that it’s the case for Peter. But the great news is, it’s just been a year since Peter joined the company and he’s received a letter of appreciation!!! Long story short, I just want you to know that we honor God in your work place, He rewards you.
So the AMAZING NEWS
I’m so tempted to share this with you now, but I better wait until it’s fully fully fully confirmed and I think this AMAZING NEWS deserves a separate blog post. So I have to hold my horses, I’m too excited but I need to control myself until we get this confirmed. I will share this amazing news with you in the near future! So let me go down to the secret of staying blessed. People often ask me “What’s your secret? You’re always winning competitions and you always have blessing uploaded in FB, you get this, that, blah blah blah. The thing is, I’m no different from you guys, I’m not GOD’s favorite child. When I was meditating and talking to GOD on the weekend, I had a friendly chat with HIM and I asked what did Peter & I do to deserve all of these blessings? GOD impressed in my heart it is because we always thank HIM and give back the glory to HIS name. Even though we don’t really deserve to be blessed at times, He’s blessing us because He knows He will be glorified, He knows that it will be another testimony in this journal, He knows that we are always grateful for all the blessings, big or small, people around us will know about it and He will be glorified. So the secret is not really a secret, if you want to stay blessed, be grateful to HIM who has given you everything. Learn how to count your blessings, count them one by one. Write them down so you can look back on them and feel blessed, tell people about it, testify. Let HIS name be glorified.
