Heiress of His Promise, Personal


Pasasalamat, n. gratitude or indulgence

In the past few weeks, including the closing weeks of 2017, I had a lot of fleeting moments of immense gratitude.

Noticing something I bought months ago that’s propped up on the bookshelf, or remembering an experience that was once a prayer, or seeing faces of people I have come to love all over facebook. Each time — flashes of joy spreading through my body accompanied by humbling gratitude from the overwhelming realisation of the love from my ever-faithful God.

Here are some things that have made me feel that simple but powerful gratitude.

Heiress of His Promise, Personal

Saved by Grace

I don’t remember when the word grace started resonating with me, but it has and in fact, it is from which the name of this blog was derived! In part, it’s a special word to me because the biblical definition of my name Hanna means just that, grace. However, it also encapsulates the unfolding of our relationship with God. In Ephesians 2:8-10, it reads

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Today is a special Sunday :)

Halaaaaa. 🙂

Dati, kinukuwento lang nila sa akin yung mga tungkol sa messages ni God na ipinapadaan niya sa ibang tao pero today naexperience ko na siya. Or na-try ko na dati pero this time, ang obvious lang, the way na yung mga sinabi sa akin eh saktong yun yung mga dumadaan talaga sa isip ko nung last month. And ang overwhelming ng feeling. 😀 Pwede pala talaga yun noh? Yung may gusto kang marinig kay God, tapos He will use the voice of other people to talk to you.

Dear ate Nikka,

Naisip ko lang po parang kulang yung nailabas ko happiness and gratitude kanina. 😐 I was really amazed nung sinabi niyo yung about doon sa words that God impressed in you to tell me. Parang, “Woah woah, bakit alam mo yan, ate?” haha. Kasi yung mga sinabi niyo, yun po talaga yung isa sa mga things that bothered me. Actually po nati-trigger na po kanina yung tears ko pero ayaw ko kasing umiyak so I pushed them back, but really po, thank you. 🙂 Sobrang na-assure lang ako na whatever I lost or failed in last sem, eh they will be restored. And that somehow, even though I felt lost last sem, God was with me and He was carrying me through.

“He will wipe away your tears, He will restore your wasted years.”

Thank you rin po sa medal thingyyyyy :)))))) Na-feel ko po talaga yung Love. Feeling ko, ni-reward ako ni God pero hindi ko sure kung ano ginawa ko kase feeling ko andami ko talagang mistakes and wrong decisions last sem. Or maybe, it’s just God’s way of reminding us, reminding me, of His unconditional Love. Na whatever you’ve done in life, He won’t give up on us.

Nae-excite na rin po ako sa following 121’s. Feeling ko andaming new things happening in my life right now, and new more things to come along the way. 🙂


Ay, grabe, Lord! Thank you! :))

There’s a reason why na-plant sa puso ko kahapon na mag-Sunday service ako. There’s a reason why nagtext bigla si Fritzie sa akin kagabi at nagyaya na mag-Sunday service (eh hindi naman kami usually nagtetextan). And there’s a reason why the universe conspired para makapunta ako sa Victory kanina. Na nalibre pa ako sa fare papunta, actually hanggang bukas na lang yung pera ko, pero God graced me with a friend. Maybe sasabihin pala siya sa akin through a sister. 🙂

 Wow lang. Wow God. :’) Wow. 🙂
