White Saturday. Easter Eve.

I have attended several dozens of religious ceremonies but in Sagada, I was very much overwhelmed. Maybe this is an understatement but really, I never felt so intimate with the Lord in my whole life. Siguro ito na yung turning point ng buhay mo na there is something lacking within you that only HE can provide.

Sinadya ba ni Lord na pumunta ako ng ganito kalayo para lang ma-realize ko na I am still part of HIS great plans?

Teka, umiiyak ba ako? Di ko namamalayan pero umiiyak nga ako...

I didn't know that I was crying on my seat even before the mass has started. It took me 3 seat transfers and 30 long minutes bago ko na-contain ang sarili ko. Hindi ko alam kung bakit ako umiiyak...Wala namang masaket sa kin pero diretso pa din ang iyak ko...Then I thought...May DIYOS nga...alam ko katabi ko siya habang umiiyak ako...habang iniisip ko kung paano maiibsan nang kahit konti lang ang mga problema namin sa buhay...

Ngayon alam ko may DIYOS nga...mayroon akong DIYOS...

Ezekiel 34:24-31 A new LIFE and a new SPIRIT

24 I, the LORD, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them. I, the LORD, have spoken. 25 I will make a covenant of peace with them, and rid the country of ravenous beasts, that they may dwell securely in the desert and sleep in the forests. 26 I will place them about my hill, sending rain in due season, rains that shall be a blessing to them. 27 The trees of the field shall bear their fruits, and the land its crops, and they shall dwell securely on their own soil. Thus they shall know that I am the LORD when I break the bonds of their yoke and free them from the power of those who enslaved them. 28 They shall no longer be despoiled by the nations or devoured by beasts of the earth, but shall dwell secure, with no one to frighten hem. 29 I will prepare for them peaceful fields for planting; they shall no longer be carried off by famine in the land, or bear the reproaches of the nations. 30 Thus they shall know that I, the LORD, am their God, and they are my people, the house of Israel, says the Lord GOD. 31 (You, my sheep, you are the sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, says the Lord GOD.)

Jer 29
11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you," declares the LORD..

HE's always there, patiently waiting for us :)
