Faith Goals: Yes! He is indeed Faithful

Hooray! It’s September! Gosh! Time flies so fast as they always say. The next thing you know, its already Christmas!

I suddenly thought of my faith goals. I checked my notes, from which I listed some of the things that I am believing for this year--I took time to ponder on it and it's just soO amazing to see how God can answer prayers. He is real, alive and He is indeed at work in our lives!

For me, listing my faith goal and seeing them answered by GOD increases my faith in HIM, it is also a good way to keep myself on track and motivated.  Last year, before my week of "one meal a day" Prayer and Fasting I started to list down the things that I am believing for 2012. I break down my faith goals into four areas.
  1. Personal Faith Goals. It includes Spiritual Revival, Physical Healing, Rich Generosity, Prosperity and Abundance.
  2. My Family. If you've been praying for Restoration of Relationships and Household Salvation in the Family.
  3. Career. Excellence, Promotion.
  4. Ministry. It is for Small Group Growth, Prayer for Colleagues, classmates, bosses, employees.
And here's a part of my notes. (my 'lil nephew thought of it as a scratch one time–so pls. bear with it^^)
For 2012, My Faith Goal is to Focus on what's Important, Year of 'No'.


To be more Faithful on the 10% tights. It's really really challenging, especially my budget was really tight. It is not easy, believe me and this is something I'm still working on. Yet, God has been faithful to me.  He pour out His blessings abundantly - early this year when I was able to close a deal, real estate thingy which I got ten thousand bucks. I have a small sideline business that earns about 400-500 a week, I'll do blogging on the other sides and had the privilege of being invited to some events and get paid, I had an increase on salary! Not so big, but, something to be thankful for :) With God's financial provisions, it becomes possible for me to go to places I want. Four months ago when we had our first outreach program held in Ulingan. It was actually an answered prayer, much of the funding comes from our own pockets.  It's just overwhelming to see how God has blesses us so we can also be a blessings to others. :)
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.             Malachi 3:10
☑ Every Business (Buy & Sell) Shall prosper in Jesus mighty name amen! - My sideline business is going well, as I have mentioned, I was able to closed a deal too! :) and there's more for this month! Though, I already claimed it, still hoping that everything will really fall into place. :) (Update: Guess what?! We're able to closed the deal! woo-hoo!)

Praying for a  House and Lot for my parents. (Is anything too hard from the Lord? Just have Faith)
回 Lord I want to save additional 10k by the end of this year. This is aside from 150 pesos that I keep every week. Well, 4 months to go. geez.
回 Learn another Language. Mandarin (Target: March-June). Fail. But still have months to go.
More Posts, more traffic for my sites. 4 posts/ Month. I'm happy cause there are actually some who reads my blog pala. hehe.  I have received several invites to some events, I get paid, I get freebies, it's an awesome experience. Lucky Me?! Ahmm, I guess I just have an awesome God who supplies me the wisdom and strength that I need. Believe me, when I was starting out, I can't even finish a post! ^^ But He is God who provides (Matthew 7:11) - He knows where I am lacking and He supplies me with that. :)
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:19 
I'm still a newbie to the blogsphere though. :p

☑ Been praying for a new CP and a running shoes and it was answered! Yey! Got an iPhone 3Gs and a merrell running shoes which I got for 70% off! Oops, I've got also a free phone from my provider,  Alcatel One Touch which I sold. ^^  Remember, when He says He will provide, He will provide.  :)

For my bucket list, here's what I exactly wrote last year.

☑ 2 Mountains, Pico & Pulag =) | Mount Pulag, checked! I haven't go back to Pico yet, BUT I was able to conquer Mt. Manalmon, so checked!
回 Walk accross San Juanico Bridge
☑ 2 islands, Kwebang Lagpas, Potipot or Magalawa, Zambales. Kwebang Lampas is one of the best! (December Updates: Funny how God can be a comedian. I remember writing only 2 islands from my "bucket list". And this year, I was able to see Kwebang Lampas and just 2 weeks ago, we were able to visit hundred islands (*unplanned trip). I only ask for 2, He gave me hundreds of them. ^^ SO generous, isn't it?
☑ 2 Beaches, El Nido & _______________________. Family Outing on one of the beaches in Laiya, Batangas (April). (December Update : Although haven't visit El Nido yet :(, I was able to go beach bumming at one of the beaches in Lingayen, Pangasinan weeks ago. So checked! :D
回 Bike across greenfields of Bataan

Some of them has been answered already while some were not answered YET. Still, I am grateful because GOD has blessed me beyond my faith goal list and I'm posting it simply because I want this to be a testimony of God's goodness and faithfulness. Indeed, He is a Faithful God and He will be forever faithful. We just have to be still, have faith and know that He is God!

Hebrews 11:17-19 | Malachi 3:6 | Numbers 23:19 | Psalm 105:8 | 1 Corinthians 10:13

Well, I guess this is too long already will share with you guys the other three areas in my next post.

But before I end this post, here's a question I want to leave with you:
- What are you believing God for this year? Was it answered already?
