Part of every school-minded person’s life is the last part of pencil and paper chapter, one of the chapters in my life that I have been waiting for. I am talking about collegiate graduation day, the day to give thanks to the Painter of my life. I am really waiting for this day since my story in choosing my course is different. It is not as easy as the yes or no questions. Nursing was my choice, but unfortunately, I woke up one day in the direction God has painted for me. I took the direction with doubt. I am in doubt taking engineering course. But as the day goes by, I am realizing that I am on the right track.

Last March 27, 2012, at 4:00 in the afternoon, it happened, the day to be grateful to God, to give the biggest thanks that I can. I spent 3 semesters for Nursing, 1 semester for Computer Engineering, and the rest of the days for Electronics Engineering, but God spent every seconds of His holy time for my wisdom, health, relationships, and blessings beyond the sky. I am being foolish when I doubted God’s plan. I realized the reason why God made a U-turn in my decision. I am not saying that Engineering is better to Nursing but it is what God wants me to do. Probably, He let me took Nursing to meet great friends, which adds color to my life and lead me to Electronics Engineering to complete the scene. I am confident that God is at my back, to tell me where I must go and give me the choice to take it, freely.

To the students who are also waiting in the last part of pencil and paper chapter, just keep the faith and God will lead the way. Make this chapter worth remembering by letting God write this chapter for you.

In His Ways

It’s been 1 month that I didn’t get a chance to attend our church’s Sunday service due to my in-house review. Honestly, I didn’t feel guilty about not attending church service every Sunday. It is because I assure myself and God that I will not waste my time during those days. I also read my RBC ministries’ Daily Bread every morning to somehow remind me that I need to give part of my time to God. And then guilt knocked on my heart this morning, I thought of going to church today.

I don’t read my Daily Bread based on its date. I read it whenever I want it and I feel that I need to. This morning, the passage I read was entitled, The Most Important Days. It says, “The time spent with God is a time well spent”. This last line of the passage opened the door of guilt to my heart. I thought that God is giving me sign that He wants me to attend the Sunday service today. I disregarded my guilt and continue to what I’m doing, until I received a text from my classmates saying that our review for today is cancelled.

I smiled and said to myself, “God texted me”. It’s like God make a decision for me today. He painted a rainbow for me. He really did! He cares for me!

These are the times that I really proved that God cares for all His children. I don’t know how but faith knows how. When there are times in our life that we can’t decide for ourselves, take a time reading bible or anything that would remind you of God, I’m confident that He will make a decision for us. A far better decision than what we can imagine. If you can’t make right decisions, ask God to do it for you.
