Good morning guys! I trust you’ve been great through the night and have woken up to a beautiful day full of God’s promises, love and light. I’m great and as usual, here to share something beautiful. But here’s a scripture I’d love to share (Far from today’s subject) but worth pondering.
“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”
Matthew 7:1-5 (Also Luke 6:41-42)
I’ll not speak much about it for I believe we have heard, we have read it as often times and know its meaning. Soo… Have you found yourself in some kind of infatuation, taken extreme measures about an issue and regretted or appreciated it later?
Pendo had known this guy for more than 5 years. They never kept in touch but it had already stuck in her mind that because once in a while they’d talk and it had been forever they had known each other (Friendship didn’t have a foundation), then they were meant to be anyway. It was so clear.
However for this guy, he never knew whatever it s he wanted to settle for. He never sounded sure. He was never ready. It’s dangerous my friend. Dealing with such a person isn’t easy. As time went by, Pendo’s patience ran out and she decided to take matters into her own hands. She took an extreme measure. It’s funny she regretted and delighted and regretted it at the same time.
Pendo decided to confront the guy. A whole day and at the end of it, there was no verbal and precise feedback. A whole day and it was as if both were still trying o solve a puzzle that’d never just be! Aaaargh! Pendo was fed up and just couldn’t take it anymore. The clear picture of them together in her mind was no longer there. Instead, there was just a total disconnection that was so real!
“What’s happening?” She thought to herself. The imagination could have been a great sign of impatience or of pressure because of all that was happening around her that she wished was happening to her too. She forgot the important aspect of time and why it is so important to sometimes just let things be.
Patience is beautiful, believing in things happening at the right time is beautiful. There’s no need to take extreme measures to find answers. It only makes the situation worse, regardless of the answers we get. The Lord asks of us to believe that at the right time, things are made beautiful. In His time.
I now believe this more than ever, in my heart and in my soul, and with every ounce of my being that the Lord means it when He says wait. That job, that career growth, that promotion, that life partner, that business, that conversion, that car you want to buy, that plot of land, that mansion you want to build won’t require your extreme measures but an exerted patience. If it is meant to be darling, then it’ll be.
Father Lord, may Your children know nothing today but trust and patience in You only.
From my heart to yours. 🙂
