Embrace Your Dreams

Posted on

“Embrace your dreams.” are the very words Angeal said to Zack in the Action-RPG game, Final Fantasy VII : Crisis Core.

I didn’t understand at first why God let me play a New Game for Final Fantasy VII : Crisis Core when I actually played it thrice. I obeyed, then He pushed me to type this entry.

I should’ve posted this weeks ago (okay, not again). Out of my busy schedule, I made it, at last, to make a blog entry again! *dances and celebrates* Okay, sorry for overreacting.

To start with, I have been thinking about shifting to another program next year. I’ve been praying for it and asking God to lead me to the right direction. As I sought Him through prayer and reading the Word for weeks, He revealed to me lots and lots of things about it.. And especially about me.

While I’m riding an FX home from school, I was praying that time, “God, what should I do? Should I shift from Arts Management (current program) to Multi-Media Arts? I really wanted to draw, but I feel so discouraged with my drawings. When I see people who draw professionally, I get discouraged very easily. I don’t know if I have to pursue drawing. I don’t know if I should be an artist in the future.”. A lot of my girl friends told me the same thing, “Follow what your heart desires.”, “I want you to shift to MMA!”, “Shift before you regret finishing the course you didn’t really want.”. Those thoughts ran through my mind while listening to the song of Britt Nicole, “Set The World On Fire”. Then I saw a sentence written near the bumper of a jeepney, “If I Can Do It, You Can”. I believe that it was God was speaking to me already. I was in deep pondering that moment. I wanted to be used by God in an extraordinary way, so why not be an artist? I should not be discouraged by the people of this world anyway. And as what my dad told me, “Artists aren’t born. They’re made.”

My dream was to continue my dad’s dream as an artist. Should I hinder myself from doing it by being discouraged from them? I have a big God! I have to make my plans big. 😀 Nothing is impossible with Him, anyway.

Anyone can love a rose, but it takes a great deal to love a leaf. It’s ordinary to love the beautiful, but it’s beautiful to love the ordinary.

This is true. We should love every single detail of every thing and every one. Learn to appreciate even the little things. 🙂

Walking Down the Past Thought

I would like to go back to what happened to me this past week. It’s so funny on how God shows His faithfulness and greatness in so many ways. This should have been my post last September, but because of too much delay (due to my busy-ness at school and FOR school) I decided to make it on October (and that is today).
This happened last September 27, 2012. I left the house late, and I waited for an FX to Buendia or Vito Cruz at North Fairview because I thought that I would be waiting at Robinson’s Novaliches longer. But I guess I was wrong that day. I waited for almost more than an hour at North Fairview! I sat on a wooden bench in front of a Sari-Sari Store near the waiting shed to wait for more FXs, almost crying. I was texting my best friend that time, and he told me that he will go there for me to help me. I thought (out of my irritation and anxiety), “Duhh, as if you could help me find an FX. You can’t even control this whole situation.” I texted my block mate, telling her that I will be late in our first class. I was surprised with her reply, “Do not fear, Tricia. Free cut tayo sa WORLITE (World Literature) today! No joke! :)” ( Translation: Do not fear, Tricia. We have a free cut in WORLITE today! No joke! :)) Wow! The moment I read her text message, I thanked God, and laughed silently (people might wonder why I was laughing alone).
Every time I feel afraid and almost giving up, having a feeling of crying already, God suddenly pops out of nowhere. I was saved! I almost got two absences for that subject (I hate committing late(s) nor absences) if it weren’t for God’s faithfulness. I trust God that time (when I was teary-eyed), saying, “GOD, I know that You have a reason why I’ve been waiting for an FX here at North Fairview for almost an hour and a half. I’ll hold on to You.”
God will really test your faith. If you’d tell Him, “LORD, I submit to Your will, and I trust in You.” you are putting your 100% trust in Him, not doubting but believing that God will do what He wants in your life. It’s submitting to His good, pleasing and perfect will (Romans 12:2).
Will you trust Him?
