Today, after a meeting with our CFO and upon receiving the following email from his admin assistant, I just realized the scope and extent of my role in this company.
I realized that I am not just a Senior Tax Manager in a Filipino company, I am the head for corporate tax of a growing Filipino multinational with a vision of being one of the top 5 Quick Service Restaurants in the world by 2020. Kilig! Haha. Really, I feel kilig, overwhelmed and privileged.
Kilig because this is the dream! I just asked the Lord for a tax law related job, and I got catapulted to this!
Overwhelmed because this is over and beyond what I even asked for or imagined. The role is very strategic in light of the growth and expansion that this company is currently in the midst of. I really know, believe and feel that it was the Lord’s hand that placed me in this role in such a time as this (and as if confirmation, my headhunter is named “Lord” too. Haha). That said, Lord, you put me here, please help me, empower me with Your Holy Spirit. I need Your wisdom. I can’t do this by myself, but I know that I can do this, as I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. #mindofChrist
Privileged because…sino ba naman ako? I don’t deserve this…I’m too young, I don’t know if I’m already sufficiently experienced…but Lord, You put me here, I just thank You…I remember our journey. In Your faithfulness, You never left me. I know this is by Your grace, and I am very humbled.
