Because we trusted in You, and You didn't let us down

Thank You, Lord for helping us succeed on our recent climb. There were terrible moments like when it started to rain on the summit and we haven't cooked and eaten yet. Our tents were becoming wet and the water is slowly filling it in. Yet You stay with us through the whole night and never abandon us.

We were all amateurs and but you gave us Kuya Kiko and Kuya Alvin to help us through the climb. We know that You sent them because You know that we can't make it in our own. May You continue to bless this world with people like them who are always there to extend a helping hand for those who are in need.

Thank you for that safe climb. May you also guide and continue to watch over those who are also on a hike today.

Thank You for the passion of experiencing nature. You are indeed great and you showed it to us through the magnificence of the world when you're up there. We will always be grateful for the gift.

Thank you that the powers that be were on top of the situation and managed to pull of a very risky rescue operation. Thank you that through this ordeal and the subsequent sweet ending it inspired the whole world that there is always hope just as long you keep the faith.

Dear God

Keep in mind, just because you don’t know the answer doesn’t mean that one does not exist. You simply haven’t discovered it yet.
Joel Osteen

At this point, I still don't know what I should be grateful about the incident last Monday. Is it the survivors? Is it a wake up call for our country? Please tell us if there is anything hidden for You to allow such mistake to happen. I do not blame You of what took place. I know You love us and this is Your way of showing us the road to a fulfilling life.

I will wait for Your answer. Until then, I will not stop being grateful for everything You've done.

Love always,

The Power of this Song

Thank you for the aisle I've walked on while singing this, tonight I was relieved.

Lord I come to You
Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That I found in You.
And Lord I've come to know
The weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away
By the power of Your love.
Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side.
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love.

Lord unveil my eyes
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love
As You live in me.
Lord renew my mind
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day
In the power of Your love.
