It takes courage to make a stand and say “it’s not about me.”

When you’re as smart (cum laude from University of Santo Tomas) and beautiful as Janine Tugonon, it’s easy to claim some credit… even just a little bit. In fact, you’ve worked hard for it, right?

Well, that’s not how Janine sees it.

In her recent interview, this was how she put it.

Understanding your purpose and acknowledging the Purpose Giver are 2 of the important things in life.

1. Understanding your purpose.

You and I were created for His glory. Our lives are to resemble that. Our goal has to reflect it.

“All things were created by him and for him.” (Colossians 1:16)

2. Acknowledging the Purpose Giver.

We have a lot of plans for our own lives but nothing beats His.

His will, His plan, His purposes produce His results.

The LORD will fulfill hisĀ purposeĀ for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever. (Ps. 138:8)

Thanks Janine for representing our nation well.

Most of all, thanks for representing the Lord well.
