The BIG Question

Last Saturday, I accompanied my friend’s daughter to watch the movie, Trolls. Overall, I really had a super fun day. The movie was really entertaining. I basically spent most of my day with my friend’s daughter as she wanted us to do other things together after the movie. In short, we had a blast!

Anyway, you know with kids nowadays. They are very smart and they really ask a lot of questions – really good ones. The biggest question I had that day which was not only asked once during the whole time my friend’s daughter and I were together was, “Do you have a husband?” It started from the question of how old I was, etc. Then, “Do you have a husband?”

And of course when you say no, there is a follow up. “Why don’t you have a husband?” I get these questions from my friends and now the pressure is on even from the little ones. Haha! I just laughed so hard not expecting we would be having that kind of conversation. Kids!

It’s a question I am so used already of being asked and my other single friends too. And in all honesty, it doesn’t really bother me. I don’t mind at all. Someday, I might be giving a different answer. Who knows, right? But for the meantime, while my answer is still a no, I will continue living a life that will only pursue what is God’s best for me.

Beautifully waiting does not mean I will just sit at a corner, not doing anything. Beautifully waiting means going on with life without compromising God’s best for me. It means if choosing only His best entails being single for now, then I will trust and wait.

Cheers to all singles who are waiting on God’s best!!




Lord, you know the greatest desire of my heart and that is to serve you with all of me. Right now, I just don’t know if I’m still able to do that for you. At work, I feel like I’m a different person from the person you wanted me to be. I don’t know if I’m influencing people in my workplace and if I’m glorifying you. I don’t know if I’m able to really share my faith to them and if it has an impact in their lives. I just feel Lord that I am not able to maximize the gifts, the time, the resources that you have given me to serve you. I know that it’s not about what I can do for you Lord. It’s a matter of my heart. I just really don’t know Lord if where I am now is really where you still want me to be. This has been an ongoing battle for me to stay or to leave. It’s very easy to just say I quit from my work but the truth is I really don’t know what steps to take after. Where should I go? What should I do? There are so many things I want to do for you which I don’t know if those things you’ve prepared for me to do. Lord please help me to have the boldness to really stand for what you want for me. To have the faith and the wisdom to take the next step. Right now, I feel exhausted with work and really stuck. I just don’t know if me staying in the team is still the right thing. Show to me Lord. All I want is to serve you. But how can I do it?
