WHO likes to wait?

Day 224/365

Have you ever enjoyed waiting?

What if your waiting prolongs even longer?

We all waiting for miracles, answered prayers, healing, breakthrough, revival, restoration of relationship, financial provision, job applications, God's best, and the list goes on.

Including me, I am in my waiting season. I've been experiencing breakdowns these past few months, but still cramming at His feet with my hands lifted high knowing that He is faithful.

I always want an honest and sincere conversation. It is raining so hard again. Let's drink some coffee.

I always show up to my friends and am very willing to listen to their rants and cries. And even to you from the online world. If you need a friend, I hope my blog posts remind you that you're not alone. All of us struggle in different ways. But this time, I'll be honest that I'm the one who needs a confidant. Somebody who will just sit beside me and listens.

These past few months, I've been searching for a job. I had closed all my bank accounts and used all my savings to pay our monthly bills. I'm the youngest in my family but still, I want to fulfill my responsibilities on my table. I passed hundreds of applications and scheduled an interview. I declined many of those. I sound confusing, right? I am applying and now I'm declining it. There are many high-paying jobs around the corner, but I keep asking myself, " if it's really for me?"

I'm so overwhelmed by the things I should and shouldn't do. The skills, talents, and knowledge that I should have to be promoted and not be left behind by the advancement of this world. I also tried to take charge and find ways to solve problems. But it left me confused.

Our culture tells us to do more in our life. I've been watching videos about side hustle jobs available online. Don't get me wrong, getting a decent job is a necessity so we can provide for our families. But I've realized during my "job search journey" the importance of intentions and motives. Money, comforts, popularity, and influences look enticing but can be deceitful if you compromise your values. And it doesn't mean that if you follow those "so-called influencers" you will also succeed in life. I've searched for that too! And you know what, I wake up with an unbearable headache.

Maybe there is just a season in our lives in which all we need to do is to wait and seek Him. Just simply, wait upon the Lord. It's okay to have blank space in our journals, to-do lists, and planners. But make sure to have quiet time along with overflowing prayers and praises. He never expects us to be great; He calls us to be faithful in our calling and surely He will give us a victorious life.

It hits me so hard. I notice He's with me at this moment. He is the one who says all these to me, sitting beside me, reminding me, and comforting me. What a friend we have in Jesus.

So if you're like me, waiting for a breakthrough at heaven's gate. Simply wait upon the Lord. I hope these verses resonate with you and remind you that He is always faithful. May His grace be upon you.

For I know the thoughts the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:28

Pressure, back pains, and fears Keep coming these days. I thought this would be a better place, Where everything runs smoothly. But as time keeps running, my heart beats keep thudding too loud. Feels like I'm hanging on a thread, GRACE keeps me going. Dreams seem so unclear. Teardrops of confusion pour out. Crickets join […]

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
