Dreams Do Come True: A testimony

Sometime in April, i decided to leave my job and seek new opportunities because i felt like my priorities won't fit my job any more. After i travelled from a week off on my job, i already left the company even if there's no job waiting for me. That time, i felt confident that i will be landing a job sometime in May or before June at least.

Weeks have passed and my confidence lost as i have tried my very best to apply for companies along the metro, most of them told me that i am forwarded for the next phase of the process, however, they did not call.

At that time, i am also transitioning on to some stuffs and tasks and organizations, so i felt like everything is in chaos in my life. I have no job, i have not even figured out what's my next move and i have a tendency of just settling for what to come in first in my life, even if it's not the best.

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
-Deuteronomy 31:6
That's exactly the message God gave me. That exactly is. From that time in May to June, i have cried a lot to God, asked Him to show me His faithfulness, His great power, His embrace and love and all His might to make me feel comforted--------and He did!. 

Sometime in June, Ingram Micro Philippines invited me for a job post in their company, this is a dream company, mind you!. Went there, had an interview and exam on Thursday, on that same day they told me that i passed the exam and on that same day, they asked me to come back at the office for the final interview at 11:00pm, i did. The following day, Friday, they said that i got the job and on that same day, i signed the contract. Monday, the following week, i started.

All these happened in just two days! During those times for my application in IM, i prayed and fast. 

Learnings: 
  • God is faithful all the time. 
  • God is powerful, comforter. 
  • God is constant. 
  • God forgives, accepts and just. 
  • God's timing is perfect, His time table is way different from ours, His' is the best!. 
During those times of my struggle, this is the song that's on my play list, the total reminder of His faithfulness. 


"So faithful, so constant, so loving and so true.... I know that You are for me, I know that You will never forsake me in my weaknesses"
- You are for me, Kari Jobe. 

You maybe have a battle right now, i also known few friends who fought giant battles sometime few months ago, just like me, they won their battles as well. Be constant in praying, God will surely answer those in His right timing, be patient!. 

This post is personally dedicted to my girls: Regene (for passing the LET Board exam) and Gen (for your internship and [still] studies), who battled and now living their dreams.

  1. To be honest, I'm lost in faith and in believing about anything, even myself sometimes. I guess my depression and my PTSD is vast that it is hard to be in control of a mind that makes sense. I'm glad that something good happened to you. I don't know if I believe in anything right now, but I know eventually something will give way.
