A New Beginning...

Moving On

On the edge of summer!  August seemed to have just started and we are now almost at the end.  This has been a busy month for our family.  Crazy good busy!  Too many voices, too many noises, too many chores and choices.  But in the midst of it all, the Holy Spirit speaks, tapping into my soul, leading and guiding towards the new season looming on the horizon.  "Move on," a phrase that God loudly whispers to me as I navigated through this month's spectrum.

August is the highlight of our summer and a preparation for fall.  We celebrate Gideon's birthday on the first week, our wedding anniversary in the middle of the month, Global Leadership Summit in between the two and the last week starts our new school year.  These are the events of this month that we focus on and pay attention to.  And in the busyness of each, although it is exciting, sometimes it gets exhausting and overwhelming that we get distracted, get stuck and stranded, not moving on towards the vision.

It is time to move on.  But how?  I want to share some wisdom I gleaned from the last two Sundays in our Church through Henry Cloud's two cents:  "Never go back!"  My take away was about patterns in our lives that need to be pruned and taken out in our system.  These are patterns that hinder us from being fruitful. It is a mindset.  I need to change a particular mindset  that is preventing me from giving my highest and best for God.  But since this is wired in my brain, in order to change, I have to replace it with a new one.  How?  In Romans 12:2 Paul admonishes us to renew our mind so that we will know God's perfect will.  It all starts in the mind.  The thinking pattern leads to action or inaction in our part.  So, in order for me to be able to move on to the vision to be fruitful, I need to surrender my thought life to God and renew my mind by filling it in with God's Word and meditating on it and put it into practice in every area of my life.

Reflections:

  • What are your thinking patterns, or habits that hinder you from knowing and doing the perfect will of God in your life?
  • What next step can you do to move on?


Only in Jesus Christ can we have a new way of life.  John 3:16

Flawed. Broken. Wretched sinner. Forgiven. Embraced by the grace and love of God through Jesus Christ. I'm married for fourteen years with my artist husband Val and blessed with a fascinating son Gideon who's 13 years old and we reside in Illinois, United States. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts from the Royal Pontifical University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines Since then I've been in the Broadcasting industry, Marketing and Real Estate. I'm currently working in the Outreach Department of a faith-based not-for-profit Christian organization. I love journaling, gardening, reading,picnicking with my two boys in summer, enjoying nature and savoring the beauty that God made available for our consumption. But most importantly, before the sun sneaks out of the horizon, I love reading the Bible, praising and praying to the One who loves me and created me and gifted me to be more than what the eyes can see! ! I want to make sure I come up first before the rays come out and listen to what God has to say for the day! I live on purpose! Each day is a gift! Live it for Jesus!
