Man, I’m sooo tired. My body cries for some rest. This is a consequence of a troubled day which has turned into a gracious day though.
After writing my previous post here on Tumblr, in the morning, I left for college to give a seminar about voice production in speech and singing. But first I went to that room which I supposed I could have left the stuff I lost. I asked the secretary and she said I really had left my stuff in the room, on a desk. Wow! God is amazing! Now I am with all the documents/certificates, nothing is missing! The seminar went well, thanks God. It has been a long time since I last presented it (in 2009), but I remembered a lot of things and, obviously, I studied it again before the presentation. Then afterwards I went upstairs - to 9th floor - to help my guys to prepare the material we’re going to distribute to the freshmen students next week. It was an amazing moment together with them. Lots of work, lots of fun though.
Tonight I went to a church where my mom goes to and it was amazing. The pastor talked about faith and that God uses to do His works in the most unpredictable ways, totally different from the obvious ways we use to imagine He is gonna do something. It has fitted like a glove to me today, I really needed to hear some encouraging words. A mom’s friend also told me very positive words and told me that God is gonna make everything work alright. I really need to try. I have to face it up. I have to walk by faith without fearing what may happen, even if I don’t go on this trip after all.
It feels like God has prepared or allowed every moment of my day to happen and I just feel like wow, I got the answers I needed for today. The fact I lost my stuff yesterday - and I only noticed that today, early in the morning - was not in vain.
God, I shall thank You for all You’ve done today and always. I know greater things are yet to come and I am ready to behold them even despite I feel like I’m living in a desert by now, and my heart is hopefully praying to see the oasis that is to come.

Today was a perfect day! The bad thing is that my throat is hurting a little… Maybe I’ve hurt my vocal folds (maybe singing in a wrong way in one of the songs at church)
LOVE is ALL and it has made my day complete
I’m listening to this Hillsong’s worship song called Fire Fall Down. It begings with one of the most beautiful verses their lyrics have: “and I sing to glorify your holy name, Jesus Christ”.
I dunno if you all know but I sing in the worship and praise ministry at Church. Singing is an essencial part of my life. Voice is the most beautiful instrument of all and the most wonderful fact is that it is the an instrument - I think so - that is not manmade - It suddenly came to my mind right now! I love to sing. I had tried to play guitar but I gave up, haha, I only learnt the basic stuff, I didn’t have time and discipline to practice every day. Ok. I have to confess that once I got voiceless during a whole week. In fact I wasn’t voiceless at all but I had some problems with my voice system. I got so sad because of this… I confess that I almost cried… So, you can see how much I love singing and how it is so important to me.
And listening to this song I remembered about something I have once realized: there’s no pleasure for me in singing if the songs are not for my Beloved, Jesus. Yeah. I’ve realized it. I don’t have the same pleasure in singing if the songs are not sang to Him and about Him. So, this phrase is a real truth in my life: I only sing to glorify His holy name, the name of Jesus Christ.
