As I was scrolling the tv, I stopped at a great pastor, a lady by the way, who talked about Abraham’s faith. Through her, I learned about the three covenants in the bible: Abrahamic, Mosaic and New. The Abrahamic law states people earn their salvation through inheritance from Abraham while the Mosaic law stipulates that salvation is gained through sacrifices. To compare the two, we see Abrahamic as unconditional while Mosaic the opposite. Far sublime and loving than the Abrahamic is the New Covenant that salvation after Christ died in the cross becomes open to all, which makes salvation based on position. This means those who believe in Christ are automatically saved. This belief is usually not proclaimed in other churches. Hence, people miss out on the real meaning of Christ’s dying on the cross. Tsk tsk!
God touched me today with His covenant with Abraham. I felt He was talking to me, assuring me all of His promises will come true, as long as I focus on Him, and not on anything else.
When Abraham asked God for a proof of His promise, God asked Abraham to prepare for a blood covenant which was the greatest, most legal, sacred form of promise during their time. That night, however, Abraham fell asleep and woke up to a burning oven, encircling the carcasses and blood of sacrificial animals. It only showed that God doesn’t want the covenant to be broken, so He ensured that He did it all by Himself. Amazing right? It was never broken, and has continued to pour over all believers up to this age! If Abraham was awake and did the compact with God, the promise would have ended when Abraham died because the covenant would have become null and void.
It’s amazing! Amazing!
In one sentence: Believe in God’s promises and focus only on Him!
Sending God’s love,
After three days in the hospital with mama, finally new uplifting words came from one of the hiring Managers from Australia.
“I am very very impressed with all your answers.”
Of course, I threw my eye smile again because most of my employers in the past said it’s very calming and assuring. True enough, I saw the three of them nodding and smiling.
You proved me again today that I can impress not only Americans and Filipinos but ahem…Australian linguists.
You showed me You were with me today. I didn’t know where those words came from; they simply flowed that I only notice the three of them smiling gently, looking dazzled.
Imagine, they are linguists and I’m just an ordinary girl with an imperfect grammar.
Who else could have done that but You?
Thank you Jesus for the successful meeting.
Time to have another one tomorrow with the director.
I know You are always with me.
I love You,
Today, the message of networking, of being proactive continued to be highlighted in my readings and in my thoughts. I realized that no matter how much you achieved, people will still view those who dress impeccably to be smarter. Although You look at the heart, I feel that it’s Your way of motivating me. Hihihihi. Of course, I’m not going to cop out. If that’s how life is played, let me join the game. And I promise myself to reach that authentic self.
Also, the blog I read today bolstered what I previously read in Ferrazzi’s Never Eat Alone book where he stated we must create our personal brand. According to the blog, in order to project a personal brand, we must have our own voice, own style of dressing that resonates with our mission and the people we want to attract, our network, our mannerism (so cussing is out), our word, our habits and our consistency. So far, I can confidently say I have all except for the style part. I haven’t define my own style yet, but I know that I am more of a natural-classic one. I also feel that an accessory with bible passages will make me unique and will reflect more of my priorities. Before the end of the year, it’s a promise to define and project that into the world, and to weed out unnecessary wardrobe items that do not resonate with who I am. Three points: Focus, Hard work and Personal Branding.
Thank you Jesus!
I love You always,
I read Coffee Lunch Coffee by Muller, Never Eat Alone by Ferrazzi and The Charisma Myth by Olivia Bane. All three books discussed a common theme, networking. What have I learned from the books? I must be proactive in building my network by inviting people to lunch or dinner, asking them important questions, and being genuine, open, warm, powerful and present in the process. Also, Muller suggested to build a portfolio that contains my elevator pitch, resume, 300 to 500 bio and update it often. She insisted that we be prepared to present ourselves once thrown in the pond. Because of that, I created a professional page. Honestly, it’s seems awkward and daunting to invite a CEO or someone in position over for dinner even if we haven’t established that pond. But Muller highlighted that we can mitigate this by preparing in advance, asking important questions, showing what we can lay on the table, and projecting warmth, power and presence.
Actionable plan: Start my Networking Plan where I write my goals, the people I want to network, and the people I already know. I must also be clear on what I want to be known for and establish a brand for myself and sell it. In my case, I think I really want to be known as a great influencer and a legendary world-class empowering public speaker and coach who changes thousands of lives (dream big right? Hihihihi). Everything I study should bolster that image from clubs, networks to projects and skills. Thanks for this message tonight.
For my passage readings today, I tag Isaiah 10 as pride. It reminds me to humble myself. The chapter speaks of God’s wrath upon the King of Assyria who thinks he conquered Israel out of his own might. In the same way, I shouldn’t acknowledge everything as a product of my own effort. Nope. Everything comes from You! Isaiah 11 is unity. It speaks of the time when Ephraim would not be envious of Judah anymore, and Judah wouldn’t be an inimical enemy to Ephraim. Instead, God will use both for His glory. Isaiah 12 is Thanksgiving. Because of this reconciliation, we would remember Christ as the source of our strength and courage. Isaiah 13 is Trust. God is already in the future. He allows the savior to sprang from the shoot of Jesse. Although he has all good things prepared for the Israelites, they must undergo the trials as a cause of their sin. Probably the message is God’s faithfulness to His promise and divine justice.
Thank you for promising a surprise for this week.
