“So there’s this guy I’m interested in.”
These were my words during my quiet time early this morning. And well, He answered, “Your heavenly Father knows what you need even before you ask Him.” He kept repeating those words over and over again. So I asked the question.
And then I got flashes of scenarios in my head. There was a moment in my life when I was so focused with the wrong guy. Everybody kept telling me the guy was not right for me. I didn’t listen to them. But more importantly, I forgot that it was just a task I was told to do.
So anyway, I got lost in that moment. But then there were days when this guy was just there by the end of the steps, waiting for me as if telling me, “Look at me. I’m the right man for you.” At that time, I didn’t think it was something. I just thought, “Kinda weird to see him there every single time.”
You have to understand that I got lost with the misleadings of the wrong man. We all know that all too familiar scene. You were so busy with the wrong person meanwhile the right one comes along quietly. You get a hint but you don’t think about it.
And then after some time, I thought of just giving up on all of them. But I had a great reminder. It read, “The right man will pursue the right woman and the right woman will inspire the right man to keep pursuing.” A great friend said those words. After all these years, he’s still educating me. Thank God for that very timely reminder.
And then I finished my quiet time by reading the book of Ezra. And what a great comfort it was! Just that amazing time of God’s way of bringing you back to His loving arms. That book shows us all that when God wants it done, it will be done. And I love the ending of the book where Ezra just kept humbling himself in the Lord, stepping away from all the dictates of the world and just making people realise how bad they’ve all sinned against God and therefore resulted in the people asking for God’s forgiveness and correcting their wrongs , just living their lives for His glory.
I thought to myself, “That’s the kind of man I’ve always wanted. That’s the kind of man I know God has put in my heart to want all these years. The kind of man who knows His God, follows His orders and understands what grieves His heart. That. That kind of man.”
