One way street

Taking a wrong lane led me to a longer way home today. The everyday road towards home which is so familiar...yet i took a wrong way....despite the familiarities....times where rationalities are clouded by a dreaming mind....

How many times have i taken a longer way towards my destiny because of a wrong turn, a wrong exit, a wrong lane, or led by a wrong gps signal? Numerous. I wonder if i could see the map of my life in the eyes of His, and probably i'll laugh at my stupidity and blurness of taking all the wrong ways, which took me to a longer route towards where i'm supposed to be earlier. Yet His assuring words says, "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future". And not only that, He does everything in His time.

He foreknew the turns i would take, far before i arrived at the crossroad. Why then? Didnt You alert me? Why didnt You grab me before i took that way. I did, He says....but I love you too much to make you a robot, which is why I let you choose. Choices. Sometimes I really hate them. Too little, we complain boring; too many, we became indecisive. They say women are hard to please. Sometimes i kinda agree :) Worst, after all the considerations, it's still a wrong choice, that's what i dreaded.
Am i too a perfectionist that i cant stand a mistake in my life? Or rather, is that i wish there were better ways to learn lessons instead of going thru the hard ways, which i chose them. Sometimes I tend to forget, and i guess people around me forget too...that i, am not a superwoman. Just a mere human sustained by His everlasting grace.
And i'm in need of more, to stay on the one way street leading me back Home....

Have you found your package?

Many things in life, comes in a package....
With life, we have aging, getting sick, and death.
With love, we have misunderstandings, quarrels, sweet moments, and heartaches.
With truth, we have relief, pain, and often a pinch.
With great power, we have great responsibilities...

Since when I started pondering the packages of life, wonder why had He package things in such a way? Or rather, many times it was our homo sapien's shallow minds and hurried decisions that caused us into these kind of packages? The good package of creation comes with pleasure, purpose and eternal life. Yet a simple act of disobedience repackaged it. And often, we put the blame on someone, somewhere, someOne else...We wouldn't be able to understand how wrong we have been until we begin to embrace the good orginal purpose of mankind, and to accept the undying love of God towards human, and to build our faith on Christ whom people so condemned on the cross.

Some thought that one is not good enough to be a christian...truth is, none of us are. He come to heal the broken, cure the sick, and forgive the sinners. Not to gather perfect men to the heavenly club. Some thought life is meant for enjoyment, so let's wait till before one is dying, then we'll talk about religion...truth is, there's no religious talk's only about the relationship with God the Father, to come back to His heartbeat for us, and mind you....nobody will know when is our last hour. I just got a news this morning of a passing away ex-coll of mine, who was supposed to get married this year....mind hammering news....i couldnt help to hold back the numbness i felt. Life is short, what do you want to use it for?

The package of sin, has came with the promising salvation through Christ. Have you found it?
Gazing upon the promising cross of a faithful friend, I know, I found where I belong.
