Ang buhay parang arrow lang yan. Hihilahin ka niyan pabalik. Dun mo mafefeel ung nawawalan ka na ng pag-asa, sobra kabng nasasaktan, at lahat pa. Pero hold on, its taking you back because it can aim you to something great. Kung hindi mo nakamit ung gusto mo, aim and aim. Life goes on
God opens doors of opportunity before us that no one is able to shut. But we have to realize, sometimes He also closes doors because He has something better in store. We may see a logical opportunity, but just because it’s the logical way doesn’t mean that it’s God’s way. Just because it happened that way before doesn’t mean it’s going to happen that way next time. That’s why you have to stay open and keep trusting in God. If you’re narrow-minded and only look at the door that’s been closed, you may miss the door He has opened behind you!
Friend, when you are able to let go of your own agenda and trust God, He’ll make sure you see those open doors. Scripture says His Word is what lights our path. Our attitude should always be, “God, I surrender all to You. Have Your way in my life. I trust Your timing. God, I trust You to do it Your way.” Then, step back and see the open door He has prepared for you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for ordering and directing my steps. I choose to trust You even when doors close before me. I believe that You have my best interest at heart. I am ready and available. I stand looking for the open door You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Strangers —> Friends —> Lovers —> Strangers
We started out as strangers. You’re just one of those nameless people I often pass by on the street. You didn’t even bother to look at me and I’m like that to you. Because maybe we’re just following those words from our parents “Don’t talk to strangers.” You didn’t know me and I didn’t know you. There is nothing in between us except for one thing, you’re a human and I’m a human too, that’s our common denominator. We live on the same planet, we on breathe the same air, we walk on the same earth, we both give off carbon dioxide, we both try to survive. Yeah, because of hose things that we can consider as our similarities, you and I are possible.
But fate has it’s own plans. Because of some unknown reasons, those two strangers met and became friends. Our paths have crossed and then friendship blooms. At first there’s this strange feeling, that you don’t trust me and you don’t like me, but in the end, you became convinced that I can be one of your friend. We hangout together, we save each other texts, we talk to each other 24/7, we share each other personal stuff. There are no strange feeling involved now, because we know each that much already. We laugh together, we cry together and we hate other people together.
I have to rephrase it, there is a strange feeling involved, maybe that is the hunger for a more intense feeling, we just can’t be friends, that’s why we take higher steps and let ourselves feel the feeling of being one. We’re lovers now. Isn’t that great? Its the most exciting stage. Its the part wherein everything become a little romantic. The atmosphere was full of sweet music and corny pick-up lines. We become inseparable. We become one. Our hearts unite. Promises of a brighter tomorrow were utter. Cuddling, hugging and kissing become our favorite hobby. Holding each other’s hands become our daily routine. It’s the part wherein we’re high up there and almost reaching the stars, almost.
But things changed. And it’s not for the better, it’s for the worst. Sure there’s our friendship that served as the foundation of our relationship, but we can’t prevent those things that are meant to happen. We didn’t let things fall down, we try to save everything but life has already decided, we aren’t the one for each other. Now we’re back to zero again. Just when I though that we’ll never be strangers again, I was wrong. We’re travelling this road for the second time. We cut off the connection. We avoid each other’s glimpses. We’re strangers with some memories now. The only thing that remain was our broken hearts. Waiting to be healed by time.
