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.

There is a tree at the side of our house. This tree bears fruit every summer for a long time. But every beginning has an end. One day the tree started to die but still standing even though it has no leaves. Sad? A bit yes and a bit no. Yes, in a sense that the tree is vanishing but since I’m a rainbow painter, no. Let me paint the rainbow this way; even though the tree is dying, it leaves for a purpose. The purpose lies behind the lonely appearance of the dying tree. The tree’s beautiful leaves were gone, but replaced by the magnificent view of the sky perceive underneath. The fruits will not come back, but the warm sunlight can now pass every morning.

This coming 2012, let us paint a rainbow. 2011 will end soon but let us look behind the dying days of this year. What are images you see? Are you sad? A bit yes? Or a bit no? Whatever that is, it has a purpose and it will be better this coming year. Be optimistic. If you had 10 dreams last year, make it 28 this year.

2012 can be a great year if we will focus our hearts in the images behind the negative aspects of life. Let us start this year with a prayer and try to see the most colorful rainbow.
