THE REAL THING
Someone told me a really beautiful story today.This person met someone whom he/she never thought would be the one that would make him/her happy. Let me tell you bout their story and may it inspire you as it did to me.
They lived separate lives. It never even dawned on both of them that the other exist. But indeed destiny had other plans. They met. But they were not aware of the other. Still, they were unaware of what lies ahead. They tried to live life normally…to defy what destiny wrote for them. But the pen that wrote their story was stronger than their defiance. The feelings were stronger than their thoughts. Their thoughts still led them to each other. Questions were raised and God was reluctant to provide them answers until they would learn to listen to what their hearts were singing. She tried and no longer that her knees touch the ground in prayer, she heard the angels sing a beautiful love song. But unlike her, he had many questions, doubts and fears. He was unable to hear the songs because he was hurting. He was deaf to whatever answers that God provided him. She held on believing that one day he will find peace in his heart just like her. The wait was long and hard for her. But she patiently waited. He had the answers but he was distracted. However, destiny had no plans of giving up on them. He clearly laid out everything to him. Taught him how to listen to the rythmn of his heart. Finally, he danced to the music. He finally opened his heart to her who had patiently waited and loved him. They found themselves helplessly in love with each other. Destiny was happy and he entrusted to them the pen. The pen that should continue to write their story.
LESSON LEARNED: We write our own destiny. Sometimes we fall apart but destiny pulls us back into the road that we were tasked to take. We often overanalyze. We fail to listen to what our hearts tells us because we are often blinded by thoughts and emotions. We have lots of baggages in our lives that we are yet to unload. If we learn to do just that, we will realize that the simplest things in life are the things that would make us really happy, focused and contented.
I had always been an advocate of love. Tried my best to keep the fire burning. But what wasn’t meant to be, will never be. I unloaded my baggages and I found out that amongst them was a beautiful one. Packed lightly and neatly. It said ” I believe you had been looking for this for quite sometime. Love Father God.” When I tried to open it…I found God’s perfect gift for me.
