You might have seen or read my latest blog posts. The ones about how my idea of marriage is being washed clean and inspired by God.
In those posts I may have made clear that I was restless about somebody I like. I have surprised myself. Maybe it is more accurate to say that my feelings have surprised me.
Sometimes I would be so sure that God was talking to me or giving me signs about this guy. But at other times I would feel rather unintelligent for my way of thinking. I felt like I was being illogical and immature. I used to worry and pray and pray and worry and write and talk, ask questions and adjust and start all over again. But it has been quiet in my head for a while.
I am not sure how long this will last, but I don’t get anxious about a possible future with this person anymore. I still think about him everyday. Well, he might pop up in my mind now and then throughout the day, but the restlesness has subdued. My thoughts have changed from ‘this has to happen and now is the time’ into ‘God has got this and He will come through when He comes through’.
The fact of the matter is that now I know that this type of relationship will be part of my future, whether near or far (right now I think far). I really love how God has allowed me to learn that it is all okay. All the feelings, all the hope and that He loves to hear about all of them and also loves to take action when I feel like I am drowning. I believe that this peacefulness that I am experiencing is from prayer. Because I have prayed to be at rest.
Now, I don’t know how I will react if I would ever meet this guy again and if we would talk. I might need divine ‘calmation’ and ‘wisdomification’ for those moments, lol. But whatever happens then, because of my God who is more than my helper, what is meant to be will be.
I still don’t know what exactly will happen, I mean what I am supposed to do in the next 5 months and next year in terms of my career. I am getting an itsy bitsy more anxious about that. I used to feel secure about the coming end of my current job, because (I’ve said this before) God let me know beforehand. (If He knew and let me know it will be something good). But I feel like I am losing faith in His word because I have no idea how and when He is going to do what He will do. He has also made me know that He will come through, but I haven’t the slightest idea when. How long after the end will He come through, will it be before the actual end, at the actual end, a year after?
Questions only ‘time’ will answer. But one thing I have learned in this ‘guy situation’ is that even if I did know…having my heart anchored in and my hope focussed on the substance rather than the provider, would have always caused fear and with that doubt and with that unbelief and with that works of the flesh.
If God ain’t good, than I don’t know what good is.
