I’m 28. On Monday, I’m turning 28. Some may think, at that age, I should be getting married, or if not, at least be in a relationship and settle down before I get 30.
I’m 28. Even before I turned 25 or 26 or 27, I’ve been complete as a person. Since I learned to practice the word, “surrender”, I became complete. In Christ, I am complete.
I’m 28. I am single. Yes, I’ve never been in a romantic relationship. As they say, “No Boyfriend since Birth”. But, it doesn’t mean I don’t want to be in a relationship.
I’m 28. I’m a believer of waiting for God’s best. Yes, I failed at one point. I’ve had my own share of being heartbroken. Not all may know. But, it didn’t make me stop believing in love. It made me better.
I’m 28. As I continue looking up to the Author of love, I will never be tired of waiting. I will always enjoy romantic movies. No bitterness. Just waiting.
I’m 28. And if I’ll meet him when I’m still 28 or when I’m 29 or 30 or whenever, my first LOVE will always be my first. And I hope it will be the same for him too.
I’m 28. A woman captivated by the heart of God. Beautifully waiting.
Have you ever been in that situation that you’r waiting for something to happen but you just don’t know when exactly it will be? Does it make you feel uneasy?
I’m currently in that situation now. My assignment here in Canada is going to end soon, planned date is March 30 and I will be going back to the Philippines on April 1. However, there is a possibility that I will be extended because I have to wait for the person who will replace me here to get her visa. So, my return date seems uncertain for now. And, all I can really do is to wait. I can’t plan my vacation, I can’t book my flights going home, I can’t really tell how many days I can spend with my family. And it made me uneasy for the past days. But, now, I’m just letting it go. I’m just trusting God, knowing that He will make things work out no matter how it will be.
What I am looking forward now? Spring!!! My wish is to see cherry blossoms before I leave Canada. And, I can see some are starting to bloom already. Weeeeh! I will surely miss spring time here!
Here’s my last year’s Spring time moment Always worth the wait! 😉
When I was on the road last week, I did some little reflection. What if my life would be like that of a road trip? No plans…not knowing where to go…no direction. I realized it would be fun. I had fun when we had our road trip. We stopped on places that we saw along the way just because we wanted to…did the things that we didn’t plan to do…just enjoyed every moment. Same goes with life. I can just do anything that I would want to do. Not thinking of what’s next.
But then, during our road trip. We had a contingency. One of us brought a tent just in case we’ve got nowhere to sleep and good thing we rented a van. I had to bring some extra cash just in case we might be needing it since we really didn’t make any plan. And then, I compared it with life. Then, I saw the difference. In our life, there are no contingencies. When we choose to live an easy-going and carefree life or I must say, a life with no purpose and we reach the end of our life, we just can’t sleep in the tent. Our destiny is final. We can’t do anything when we are already dead, right?
And so, I’m glad that I did not choose that life. I praise God that He opened my heart to choose a life of purpose with Him. I’ve been in a road trip type of life once. It was fun. But at the end of the day, my life was empty. I had fun in our road trip last week. But the truth is, there was really no purpose fulfilled. It was a good experience which really taught me that next time, I should definitely make reservations! And when the day comes that I will meet my Maker, I can excitedly face my destiny. And that is heaven. 🙂
How about you? What trip are you making?
To God be the glory. 🙂
