I believe in WAITING.
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
I believe in WAITING.
The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.
I believe in WAITING.
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
I believe in WAITING
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I may not know what tomorrow holds for me but I know who holds tomorrow and I am confident for HE is faithful.
Few months ago, our small group leader asked us to write down a list of our “Ideal Man”. I was able to come up with a list and even titled it “Ang Tipo Kong Lalaki” (haha) but I actually had a bit of a struggle writing it.
I know I could have just wrote down “Tall, Dark and Handsome
(and of course Mabango)” but I wasn’t really having a hard time thinking of what I would like for a future partner. The struggle was that, I was not answering “What” but “Who”. (haha, may person in mind pala).
I was in the middle of thinking of my “list” when I uttered “Father God, ano nga ba?” then HE gave me these words when I opened my Bible “…He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. And the LORD is with him.” (1 Samuel 16:18).
I recall smiling from ear to ear after reading those words. Kinilig ako! He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. ? Si God talaga oh! Alam yung gusto ko! Haha!
God really knows what we need because HE is our Father. How sweet is it to be loved by HIM. I didn’t even ask HIM but HE answered me.It was a rather funny moment with God and I still get kilig whenever I read that verse.
But the best part of it was the last sentence, “and the LORD is with him”. I felt like a princess super love by God because I am sure that HE would give me to one of HIS prince. The one HE have prepared for me. Pwede pala maiyak sa sobrang kilig? haha
Excited na ako! :) I am keeping this promise. Thank God for HE is a faithful God!
Can you hold my hand and lead the way
and hold me tighter when I try to run away
Can you pull me close when I try to get my way?
and squeeze my hand when things go astray?
Can you guide my heart and always help me pray?
Jesus, I have asked you these questions then lo and behold your words caught my attention.
This would be forever my favorite verse. :)
God – the greatest lover
so loved – the greatest degree
the world – the greatest company
that He gave – the greatest act
His only begotten Son – the greatest gift
that whoever believes – the greatest simplicity
in Him – the greatest person
should not perish – the greatest promise
but – the greatest difference
have – the greatest certainty
everlasting life – the greatest possession
“That mini-heart attack whenever you couldn’t find your phone in your bag”, I read this in my twitter timeline and I couldn’t help but smile. It’s pretty funny because it happens to me all the time. I was reminded of this while reading Genesis Chapter 3 (The Fall of Man), I tried to imagine how Father God must have felt during that time? HE must have had a “massive-heart attack! And God never cease to amaze me because despite of what happened, HE was still the one who came for Adam and Eve and HE said to them “Where are you?”.
Good news is our Father is never changing. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. HE’s still the one calling for us. As for us, we haven’t change much since creation , we’re still hiding from HIM. We hid for we feel ashamed, unworthy, afraid but you know Jesus came to SEEK and to SAVE what was lost (Luke 19:10). This is another truth that we ought to know, that HE came into the world to save sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). We just have to let HIM find us.
“I was indeed a lost girl…until He found me”
I was reminded of these famous lines from the Adam Sandler movie Click while thinking of how much God loves us. Imagine yourself standing in front of HIM as you ask “Will you still love me in the morning?” and in a heartbeat HE answers you “Forever and Ever”. Wouldn’t it be the best feeling ever?!
Our Father is a faithful God and HIS love for us endures forever. That even if we are faithless and sinners He’ll still come for us and tirelessly pursue us.
One Pastor illustrate God’s love through another movie, The Vow. Leo faithfully pursued Page even though she could not remember him. And Page could not love him back because she could not remember how much Leo love her.
Sometimes, we are like Page, we forgot how much God loves us that we could not love HIM back. But the truth is we love because we were love first (1 John 4:19).The truth will set you free and knowing this truth has truly freed me!
Let’s be free! :)
The earth if full of HIS unfailing love…- Psalm 33:5
I was indeed a lost girl
I’ve been wandering restlessly
Until HE found me and saved me
HE have Loved me
Few years back…
Me: Tita, how old are you again?
Tita: I stopped counting after I turned 18.
Whenever I recall this conversation I had with my Tita few years ago I still find it funny. I thought it’s just a way of tita not revealing her age but as year after year add up to my age, I sometimes tend to lost track as well. :)
Being a NBSB at 23 my relatives seems to put pressure on me year after year…
Relative: How old are you already?
Relative: And you’re still single..
Relative: Maybe you’re too choosy.
Me: But I don’t even have any to choose from..
—————-END OF CONVERSATION————————-
As I posted previously, I used to love being inlove that I worry to much if someone’s out there for me. But after knowing Jesus more and growing in HIS love everyday, I have never been more confident that someone was created for me and just for me.
As the Bible say, Our Father knows what we need even before we ask HIM and everything will happen on HIS perfect time. As HE promised “Everything on earth has it’s own time and it’s own season.”
And as I patiently wait for that perfect moment I pray “Let all that I am wait quietly before GOD for my hope is in HIM. HIS will is my WILL.
I’ll see you on the same day you’ll see me
I’ll know you on the same day you’ll know me
HIS time will come I finally call you Day
