Answered Prayer <3

Dear friend,

Praised be Jesus and Mary!

“My prince is not coming on a white horse… He’s obviously riding a turtle somewhere really confused.” 😂

I saw that quote once in the internet, and posted that on my Facebook twice because it’s just too funny not to post.

NBSB (No Boyfriend Since Birth). At times, I didn’t care; I just kept praying and waiting. But, there were times when I started asking questions like: What’s wrong with me? Am I ugly? unattractive? My sister and I looked very much alike and my sister is in a relationship. So, it’s not the looks. Is it my personality? Or, is God just testing how long I could wait? Maybe, God doesn’t want marriage life as my vocation? Why? 😊

In the end, I would pray to God. I would tell him my petition in this manner: “Lord, I am thankful for all you have given me. I am happy with myself, my family, my friends, my workmates, my faith community… But, please let me meet someone who will teach me how to love… someone who will love me… someone who I will love… someone who I can build a happy family and, with our children, we will sing praises to You.”

It feels really nice to dream. I am not shy to tell God my wishes.

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” ‭1 John‬ ‭5:14-15‬

I did not stop praying.

I decided that I want to trust in God’s perfect timing.

And, God answered my prayers. ❤️

He sent me Ronald. (Yes, that’s my beloved’s name.)

I couldn’t be happier that God made me wait. Looking back, I realized that I was not ready before. I thought I was.

God was preparing me. He wanted me to be matured enough to handle a serious relationship – the kind of relationship I always hoped for. He prepared me for the responsibilities and challenges a loving relationship entails.

I couldn’t be happier that I waited patiently.

He came. God sent him to me.

I was okay, then. Now, I am much happier.

God loves us! He loves me!!

Indeed, it was worth the wait. I was glad I decided to be patient and to trust in His perfect timing.

Praise God!! All for Jesus!
