Believe In Yourself

My father was a taxi driver, he wasn't able to go to college hence he always advice us to study and finish our studies. He always used the word, "Igagapang ko kayo 'nak, makatapos lang kayo sa pag-aaral". 

Whenever we play Karaoke he will request his favorite song "Doon Lang" by Nonoy Zuniga. I can still remember how he sang the song with full of his emotions.

"Kung natapos ko ang aking pag-aaral", "If I finished my studies"...

As an eldest, I want to be an inspiration for my siblings. I want to finish college so I can be an example for them. I believe its possible despite of family financial problems. We motivate each other side. I'm confident, I have a complete and supporting family that gives me full inspiration. 

Year 2005, my father passed away. 

I don't know where will I begin. There's fear inside how to start. Should I continue my studies or should I stop and start working to help my family. At young age, I don't want to work the only thing in my mind is "to study and finish it". Like a good daughter, I want to fulfill my parents dream. I study well, I wish to get a good job and make an earning, enough to make a living and to support my family so that they may lead a good and comfortable life.

On my 16th birthday, I remember I wrote a wish letter. 
God, help me to keep strong. I heard that I should stop going to school so I can give way to my siblings but my desire is to continue. Give us wisdom, so we can overcome all these. I only have one wish on my birthday. I want to finish my studies.
Eight years have passed, me and my second sister are now working. We are both graduate from state university. Currently, we have two siblings still studying. My mom is going to marry her highschool sweetheart soon. I just love to see all them happy and growing. 

All the trials and errors we've been through one thing for sure we trust and we believe. They believe in me and I believe in myself. I believe in them and I trust them.

I have lots of dreams and hope for the future and I believe in God's right time I'll reap the fruits of my labor. I just want to share this personal experience of mine before I go to sleep to "believe in yourself". Whatever circumstances you are in right now. When you start believing you're mind will start to develop the "how-to-do-it" action. Always remember, if there's a will, there's a way. 

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding", Proverbs 3:5

"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it." John 14:12-14
