"It is Well"

Good morning all.  Just wanted to share this piece with you all today! You remember how i have that favourite quote "IT SHALL BE WELL"??!! Please read this.

Have a victorious and blessed day with the Lord as your guidance and anchor.   It is Well with You


“Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds”
(Isaiah 3:10, NIV)


No matter what’s happening in your life, God wants you to know that it is well with you today! Now you may say, “Elenoa, it is not well in my finances. I’m struggling. I’m in debt.” That’s okay. It’s not the end. God is still working. Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord your Provider, has breakthroughs coming your way. If all is not well in your health, don’t get discouraged. It’s not the end. God has healing and restoration coming your way. If all is not well in your family or in a relationship, don’t write a child or spouse off. They may be on the wrong course, but it’s not the end. In the end, God promises all will be well.Remember, our God does not end in defeat. He didn’t say, “Most of the time, I will cause you to triumph.” No, He said, “I will always cause you to triumph.” You may go through difficulties, through unfair situations or through betrayals, but the point is that you are going through. You’re not staying there! It’s not permanent. Defeat is not your normal state. If all is not well in your life that simply means you haven’t made it to your new destination. Stay in faith, keep declaring His Word and keep moving forward because it is well with you!

Father, thank You for Your Word which is life and health to my soul. I trust that You are working behind the scenes for my good. I will hide Your Word in my heart, knowing that it will be well with me because You are good and faithful in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Job Opportunity

One of my motivational quotes is, "It doesnt hurt to try" but my favourite is "IT SHALL BE WELL"!!! ;) Yes "it shall be well". In times of trouble and hardships I always find myself repeating after this quote "that all shall be well" and everything does turn out to be OK. You should try it too with FAITH!!

It's funny how I just started this blog and mentioned on how I wanted to find my footings, etc then a "blessing" happens. Just received a call yesterday for a short interview. It went really well and I realized how much Agricultural knowledge, particularly "livestock" related matters, I still have in me even though I have been out of practise for quite some time now. Amazing!!!

So good news people, I got offered a position in a organisation that is of my field of study and I'm so glad and THANKFUL to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and for the Community Education Training Centre (CETC) under the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) for giving me an opportunity to learn more on administration work. I tell you... it is an advantage to also have an admin background nowadays.

So hard to make decisions. But this is what I wanted and what I had studied for. Lets see what happens in the coming days.

I will update you more on this once all has been confirmed.

But for the mean time, if you have some advice or comments please do not hesitate to post them. I have to start looking for my boots! Out with the heels and in with my boots?!!

Bula Vinaka!

Hello to all my fellow followers. Firstly i will have to introduce myself so that we can have a fair idea or better perspective of what i talk about on here. Well my name is Elenoa Salele and am originally from Kadavu (havent been to my island, hoping to do so soon) in the Fiji Islands. I attended primary and secondary school in Fiji and am a graduate from the University of the South Pacific (U.S.P) from 2008 - 2010, Alafua Campus, Samoa with a Bachelor of Agriculture. After i graduated in 2010 from U.S.P i was offered an internship at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Samoa in 2011 and now i'am currently working at the Community Education Training Centre (CETC), under the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC).

With Mr. Toily Kurbanov UNDP, Suva - Resident Representative

I'am so blessed with having been given the opportunities to serve at such prestigious organisations. I can say that God has hes own plans for us as i have witnessed this. There were other plans that i had set out to do but everything doesnt work in our way. God has better plans for us coz he knows best. Yes?! Yes he does! So its getting the experience that is a BONUS to us all and with these experience i would know where i stand.

Okay so about my blog name: "Finding ME in the Agriculture World". As you can see,  i have a degree in Agriculture and you maybe asking yourselves why i havent been involved in Agriculture "hands on" ever since i graduated! I have actually! During my time at UNDP, i got to work with Agriculture consultants/specialist of other countries, got to meet & interview CEO's, ACEO's, Head of Schools i.e Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries & U.S.P etc etc and i have learnt alot from them. Now at CETC i'am fortunate to have met and work with Agricultural & Small Business consultants from around the pacific region. So basically what im trying to find out here is where "I STAND", "WHERE IM HEADING" & of course "WHERE WILL I END UP" with this degree of mine!! I have always wondered if i'am ever going to be involved in it, but do keep in mind that this is just the begining of my journey and it will be a very exciting & interesting one. I bet we all have once in our lives asked ourselves these questions. So bear with me through my journey of trying to find myself in the Agriculture world!!

Lets see where the world and my experience will take me. Enjoy the ride, everyone!
