the journey to #bravery2013


surreal, yes, it's still surreal. legit, but surreal.

i received this confirmation email a few hours ago after having our forms submitted straight in HK through Shek's mom. i still can't believe that i'm really gonna be competing this August, that i will in fact BRAVE it. God has been so faithful to me for the past weeks, leading me to be at peace with the thought of competition. He first provided for my plane fare + registration fee (just out of nowhere!), and then giving me an assurance of being able to nail those Italian fouettes (during my birthday, indeed wish granted!). even during rehearsals today, i was able to finish the fouettes in 3 consecutive runs of the variation. sige na talaga, surrender na ako kay God!

God is taking me further and beyond my limits this year. going through this is really a major MAJOR breakthrough for me. and it hasn't been easy. i've been down for so many times, my body has been failing too, and i've been really tight with my finances now, knowing the costs i need to cover. looking into it from my own point of view, i know i won't make it. i will tremble in fear and drown in frustrations. but my God is greater than all these, and since He was the one who directed me onto this path, i know He will not forsake me.

and as Teacher Chelo would say, the PROCESS is the most important prize. and i believe God has far more rewards for me than just the medals and titles. so here's to a journey of bravery - of conquering fears and increasing in faith, of experiencing fulfilled promises! let's do this together, my Lord!

"So do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. 
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand." 
- Isaiah 41:10

Scripture reassures us, "No one who trusts God like this - heart and soul - will ever regret it."
..the same God for all of us, acting the same incredibly generous way to everyone who calls out for help. 
"Everyone who calls 'Help, God!' gets help."
- Romans 10:11-13, MSG

PS. please keep me in your prayers. it would really help a lot and i would be forever grateful. <3 a total of 13 or 14 will be going from our camp to compete, so please include them as well. Acts Manila represent, woo! :")
