---My Faithful One--- A Blog to Remember
My heart was pounding as I knelt at the church praying for the grace to say the right words and feel the right emotions. Thank God I made it through and had received the answer that I have been praying for all this time. Grateful that I have come across that path at some point in my life. I know God has His reasons for everything. I am ever so thankful to everyone who passes by my life and leaves a mark in my person. I could only offer my prayer hugs for now...
Coming from an answered prayer the day before, I prayed in silence for another one. I anxiously waited for the doctor to arrive. 2 weeks prior to that appointment, we agreed that if my test results were good, I will not hear from her. Early that week, I got a call from the nurse asking me to see the doctor as soon as I could. I had been feeling sharp pains every now and then and I knew something was wrong..
The doctor sat down and looked at my lab results. Her eyes were fixed on the monitor as if she was reading something seriously - that's what it seemed to me. Finally, after what felt like eternity, she took a deep breath and said as calmly as she could, "OK, Kristine.." I was all ears to what she explained to me. According to her diagnosis, I got a condition that is NOT life-threatening but could be life changing for me... She offered me a permanent cure but it was not an option for me now... not yet... "Oh dear God, No." I cried buckets of tears that night. It is all that my heart is yearning for. I just can't...
I spent the next few days silently taking 'it' all in. One after another. Praying that I may see the light at the end of all these. God answered me right away. He knew I would be needing people to help me through. He sent wingless angels to remind me of His Love and Faithfulness towards me.
The night I got my first answer, a sister in my community whom I have not spoken to for years, had called to pray over me. Her prayer affirmed to me that God truly hears what only my heart could contain. Every word she uttered just felt like it was my own. And everyday after that, there is always a kind soul reminding me of the same thing which I believe in my heart to be true:
"GOD IS FAITHFUL"
It is for this reason that I am writing this blog here so that years from today, I will revisit this post and look back at a point in my life when things seemed impossible and my faithful God healed me and brought forth great things into my life.
For every door that closes on me, God will open the floodgates of heaven to pour His blessings upon me.
For every pain I endure, God will bear it with me.
For every desire I keep in my heart, God will satisfy it exceedingly. All in His most perfect time.
Not because I am faithful but because He is Faithful!
"I have loved you with an everlasting love and so I still maintain my faithful love for you."
And so I will be still knowing that my God is Faithful...
