Confident in Christ Bible Reading Challenge

Screen Shot 2017-03-18 at 2.22.03 am

I declared the year 2017 as the year of surprises. However, around first week of March, I declared to God I will use up all my energy, dedicate my time and effort in building my relationship with him. I admit that for the past years, I was so concerned with other less important matters: 2014= MA, 2015 =Fulbright 2016 = PCN, Job search, worrying 2017 = JOB that I almost forgot how important it is to journal on a daily basis, reflect on the bible, spend hours in prayer morning and evening.

I watched in one of the videos on Facebook this very salient point to success: measure your success with your relationships: God, Family, Church Community. Hence, these won’t take up last position in my life anymore. Just this week, after my ardent plea for answers, God helped me clarify what I really wanted in life. I realized that I wanted to fulfill my long-time vision of being a missionary abroad while earning on the side, having great wealth to take care of my family and the communities I care about: children, the old and the lost.  This week, I realized that I don’t want to marry. But again, it’s up to God. There’s a longing in my heart that needs to be filled. His goodness allowed me to try all the occupation I’ve all wanted to embark on, probably to make me see that it’s being a missionary that will satisfy me the most. Imagining that at age 30, I will be traveling around the world, preaching the good news, changing lives while vlogging, blogging, earning through my passive income streams and providing for my parents and building my dream orphanage and home for the aged.

My life becomes intentional when I began clarifying this goal. So for the first five years, remaining five years I will build an empire, learn the skills I need, lose weight, save up, train, and finish my PhD to prepare.

In the meantime, I will join several challenges to strengthen my relationship with Jesus.

The first is this Confident in Christ Bible Reading Challenge. 🙂

About kaylathetheoxenophile

Hi everyone! I’m kayla. This is my first attempt to share my thoughts through blogging. Got lots of exploring to do. Don’t even know where to start and what to say. To start the ball rolling, allow me to share with you some of the fallacies about Kayla Marie Sarte. 1. Writing is just not my line. Although most considered me as a creative writer, I doubt I have that knack. I’m direct to the point. My essays are straight. As long as I get the message across then that’s fair enough for me. 2.I’m not a walking encyclopedia, got that? How funny it is to be asked by some bunch of kiddos bout tons of stuffs I don’t know or even have heard. Worse? They expect me to answer their queries in a snap. Good thing, I can always find the usual “busy” excuse to elude their endless questions. 3. You just don’t know how pain in the ass reading is to me. I always record the days I spend reading and do my best to keep the pace. Yeah, I’m a literature major but it’s uhmm, …. Except for required readings in my literature classes in the class, I haven’t truly deal with literary works personally. Good heavens, I found John Grisham and Dean Koontz – my all time faves. (In my later posts, I’ll be sharing my thoughts bout their books.) 4. One thing I found truly bleak about me is my loved for movies. I don’t like cinematography or even crave like Glenn Ortiz to be the Steven Spielberg of this race. I just enjoy watching movies on the big screen. That’s all. So, it’s a fallacy that I like cinematography… just the movies. 5. Call me braggart, arrogant. Many think so because of the achievements I gained in the past aching yet meaningful 15 education years of my life. What they don’t know is how negative and perturbed, covered with worries, stressed I am most of the time. No matter how great the laurel I get, I always look back at the failurs I’ve been through in the past. So, that goes to mean, I don’t think highly of myself or consider my awards that much. Top 3 things about me: 1. A Theophile 2. A Xenophile 3. Just Kayla Marie B. Sarte That’s all for now. You’ll get to know more about me soon and about the project 2012 that led me to explore blogging. J One thing is certain for me though, I love who I am for I am fashioned the way I fit exactly in a large mosaic we are all in. Be happy. Live life according to God’s will. – Kayla Sarte
