Don’t know who will be reading this at this hour. But a phone call inspired me to blog this out unless I don’t think I will be able to sleep well.
Years of walking through life for the past 24 years. I had saw, witnessed and experienced as much as I can in life.
In relationships with people especially.
I was talking with my fellow big brother when he mentioned, as we grow older, our circle of influence become smaller for some of us, and that is the time when we should worried. Because are we connecting well with people and it got me to think.
Over the years, I met many people. Some of leaderships, who taught me valuable lessons in life and molded me to be who I am today. Some of friendships, who I have laughter and fun with and cry together in times of hardships. Some of discipleship, who became my disciples and I glad that some of them still around and remember me. Some of random times, come and go, leaving small foot prints in my life, who I might not remember yet I glad to have them once in my life.
But that is not what mainly in my heart. What’s in my heart were the memories of people I once liked but thanks God for listening to His voice. I was listening to stories of people who like someone and gave their heart away. And one thing came to my mind is, give away and it will be hard to take it bad.
I remembered times of nearly giving my heart away or stealing somebody’s heart but at the crucial moment, I remembered God’s voice. He told me, “STOP! That’s not the ONE!” And I dropped everything, even when my heart is heavy and I walked on.
There are moments, I hold on for years then suddenly, before I met the one, I got this impression to drop it off and I thanks God for dropping it off, in time to meet the one.
We will never know when the one will come by. Sometimes we thought: “There! This is the one!” But to be disappointed before getting together or after getting together that, no… this is sadly… not the one.
How do we tell?
Many of us love to read articles that talked about signs of… is HE/SHE the one for me? How to tell whether the person like me?
Don’t laugh! I did that before, truthfully speaking.
And I, like everyone else, once searching and wanting to know who is the one.
But I thanks God for His voice. For His vision, for His confirmation that leads me to the one.
I always talked to people who looking forward to get attached and one thing I always remind them is to pray, to know the person better before moving on further.
God’s voice always leads us to make the right decision while self desire, self want, only end us up in hurts and disappointments.
Always remember, when in doubt, listen to the VOICE. The VOICE of God. The One who know our future and direct our ways.
The moment we choose other voices, that is the moment, everything will fall. Because, we will move out of the narrow way and go into the wide way.
May this writing be of blessing to someone out there. =) Nights!
