“I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 1:6
Those were the days.
When I was in college, I was part of a youth movement called Christ’s Youth in Action (CYA). Please see this link. This movement is all over the Philippines. God has placed in our hearts the grace and the desire to live for Him throughout this earthly life. Kay Kristo buong buhay habambuhay. With the brothers and sisters we moved on to join a group of single professionals namely Ang Lingkod ng Panginoon (Servant of the Lord) or known as Lingkod. Please see this link. After Lingkod, we started to build our own community which we called Bale ning Guinu (House of God). Please see this link.
As we grow old in the Lord, some stayed for good. Some went into some places, to build their career and/or build their families. Looking back, we have experienced God’s mighty favor on His people. We have experienced being under His flock when we were students, when we were single working professionals and now that we are taking care of our own families. There is no space for doubt that God will continue His work in our lives. There is a history of faith for those who are just starting. God never fails to amaze me in the way He works in my life, in my family and in the lives of many brothers and sisters. We get excited knowing we have a God who will not leave us hanging. We get curios for we have a history that continues His story. We get prayerful so we might hold on to His promises. And we get unswerving through the grace of a God who began and who will complete.
That will be the day.
