I vividly remember my bank account draining down to a measly 10,000+php at the end of the month. It’s a shameful amount, I know. That’s the time when I should have been crunching and stressing out because I had tons of bills and expenses to pay – amounting to almost 300,000 php. Where am I gonna get the money?
But I was relaxed. “Everything’s gonna be fine.” That’s what I told myself. “God’s in control.”
He always is.
Mixed emotions were bubbling inside of me. My heart was tumbling between heavy and light. One moment, I’m down and out. And another, I’m carefree because I know that my God is in control.
And you know what? SEO Hacker is still in business.
I’ve done a lot of wrong things in life. I know. And I know God knows. I know for a fact that I don’t deserve to be blessed. I don’t deserve all this. The luxuries I’m experiencing right now are all by God’s grace.
There’s a tree right across my room before. It withered and the leaves were running thin. Perhaps it was the season. I don’t know. I looked at it and the browning of the leaves.
“Poor tree.” I thought.
The day when I looked outside my window there’s that same tree. But now it’s green and healthy – and had thick leaves! I thought I was dreaming.
But I was sure it was all real.
Until today, I can’t explain what happened and why I saw what I saw – but I know that at that moment, God spoke to me.
He told me that it was all going to be alright and that, like the tree, there would be a time when everything would bloom aplenty.
That’s what happened.
Until today my bank account never dropped as low as 10,000php. God is faithful and gracious to me.
What I thought was the end of the line is where God’s great, miraculous provision started.
I remember that there were interviews that asked me what makes SEO Hacker different from other SEO companies.
I think that it’s because our business is rooted in faith in God – His provision, purpose, grace and great plans. That’s the only sure answer I can tell you that makes us different.
Looking back, God has never failed to provide.
But this time, even if He does, I will praise Him and thank Him for all the experience and love and joy and leadership and management and learnings, and growth that He has brought me through.
It’s not the destination that is so important as the journey itself.
