How time flies. Today's the last day of February. The first two months of the year are done. And as we welcome March, big decisions have to be made, at least for me. And so I requested for a special time with my parents in the community, Tito Roland and Tita Daisy. I wanted to hear what they have to say regarding my dilemma. I wanted to seek their wisdom.
Not that I'm in my darkest hour. I just have to make a great decision - so great that it will affect a lot of things (and people) in my life, even my future.
Thankfully Tito and Tita agreed to meet with me at Waltermart. And over dinner, I told them about my situation. They listened to my story first and when I was done laying down the details, Tito spoke his mind. Surprisingly, he spoke a lot like Papa (and I can somehow hear Lolo through him too) and as I listen to him, the gray areas in my mind are slowly getting clearer. He explained to me the pros and cons of each of my options, and He helped me realize what I really want, what is really important. When it was Tita's turn, I was even more enlightened. And if there's one thing that really struck me, that's when she told me this: "In any decision that you make, you have to ask yourself, 'will this make me a better person?'"
On our way home, I was already a little less than 100% decided. I needed a little more convincing. Amazingly, when I opened the Bible, I was led to a long chapter in the Old Testament. And I was shocked to have read this: "Hear," Yahweh said. "It is I who speak."
I knew then that the wisdom and advice that I got from my parents and my leaders in the community are almost the same because they came from the one God who has planned all these. I am 100% decided now. And I am sleeping with a peaceful and happy heart knowing that I just made a great decision. :)
Thank You, Lord for surrounding me with wise people. Their love, support, and encouragement enlightens me, guides me to make better decisions, leads to me to where You want me to be, and inspires me to be the best that I can be for You, for Your greater glory! :)
