Just Wait and See

it had been a remarkable saturday for me. i was supposed to go to divisoria with officemates but since i'll just have to meet them there, i did not push through anymore. so i just attended mark10 instead and had a film showing on old testament Bible stories. and i'm really thankful i attended mark10. then i saw two of my highschool bestfriends that night.. jay and ljieu. i miss rlyn tuloy.

though i have heard the story of Joseph the Dreamer a million times, it still touched my heart when i watched the cartoons. what really inspired me were two parts. when the prison guard was telling the pharaoh about Joseph. that even if his brothers wanted to kill him and sold him, he never cursed God. and next is when his brothers apologized to him in selling him. and Joseph just answered that it was God's plan. for if it did not happen, they will die coz of the famine.

i don't curse God but i always question Him when things i pray for do not happen. and even if Joseph was a really good and faithful man to God, he was still imprisoned but because of that he became a pharaoh. and as i told jay later that night, it made me realize that maybe that's what God is doing to me. coz in the future i'll be the leader of the world. bwahahaha.

after mark10, i met up with jay. told her about a little disappointment. and she said that God has a greater plan for me. my mom also said that, and i know everyone will say that and i just want to hear God say me to me right now what is His plan. coz i hate to wait. i am not patient. and i'm telling God i'm not praying for patience so don't give me the opportunity to be patient. then jay said.. "isn't it frustrating when everyone around you is moving and yet God is asking you to be still.." exactly! that's exactly what i'm feeling right now! as in!

of course we discussed the cartoons that i've seen that afternoon. and she said what struck her from the story of joseph is that for 10 years, he was in a cell. God made him wait in a cell. and he excelled in a cell. so when we feel that we are in a garbage bin, let's try to be the best trash there is.

yesterday, God's message had been loud and clear. Wait.. Be still... i guess He's really preparing me for something great. and i'll just be the best trash. hehehe. i am praying that i'll not be impatient and try to jeopardize His plans for me. hehehe.

much later that night. actually, early morning already. 1am na kaya. i met up with ljieu. yup, even if i'm super sleepy already, i still met kathreen. coz it might be years before i'll see her again. ljieu had known me since first year highschool so she knew me before a lot of people. anyway, we've talked about my bedroom, and my mom's rule on no eating in bedrooms. and that there are lots of ants on my bed and i don't know why since food is not allowed in the room. i just said: "i guess i'm just really sweet that's why there are ants." and with a shocked face she said, "tin? ikaw sweet?" i said yup. people do change. if others would ask me if i've changed.. i'll say "yes. now i'm sweet." hahaha. my mom's description for me before would be.. "hindi siya malambing." now, i can say i am. bakit ba? gusto ko sabihin na malambing na ako eh. hahahaha.

"Be still and know I'm God"

I think it's in the OT

But I prefer NT...

I mean really, really NT

I guess God was talking to you when you attended mark10 instead.

Just have faith Tin. All your dreams will come true... in His time. :)

Hi Tintin,
I got your name from your comment on Octavian's post and I gave you a visit. And I like your post. With due respect, here's my comment on your post. We cannot pressure God to reveal His plans for us. It is up to us to find that out. We must be patient and Spirit filled so that we can be attuned to His "frequency" and become a recipient of His revelations. Of course, we have to develop the virtue of patience. There is always God's time and it does not necessarily jibe with man's time. May I invite you to visit my blog/s and may I crosslink with your blog? God bless you with the very best in life.

Thank you for your comments and I enjoyed reading your story. I hope great things happen for you as well!

No worries Tin. As they say " you will be deceived if you trust too much but you will live in torment if you do not trust enough". This generally applies to relationships but I do think it applies to our dreams and aspirations too, with the help of the Man above :)

"be still and know that i am God" -Psalm 46:10

such a familiar passage for me :)

I think He used your friend to remind you about that. :)

Sabi naman ng friend ko, "we are not here to believe in destiny. We are here to comprehend what lies beneath our path."

Tin, just 'bloom where you are planted'. :) and i can totally relate to what you are feeling now. i am going through the same dilemma i guess...the best thing is to just trust Him.
