Who am I? Where am I going?
“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29: 11
It all started when…
A friend of mine and I was walking in a busy street way back in the Philippines, we bumped in to this one old lady (she’s mentally ill and homeless) and she asked us: “Who am I? Where am I going?”, and then she left. My friend and I were both not expecting such thing to happen so we were really surprised. At the same time though, the moment she was asking us those questions, I felt sad… I wish I was there for her or was able to give her answers before it's too late.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Just like the old lady, I have found myself lost and lonely many times too. I even thought of giving up. For the past 21 years of my life, I can say that I’ve been through a lot already. I once have had a broken family, became rebellious child, had my heart broken, been sick, and the list could go on…But during the darkest days of my life, I realized that I still have plenty of reasons to go on and believe. And if there's one thing I'm really blessed with, it is the fact that in this journey…I am not alone. I have my Father in heaven, who will walk with me in every single step I take and He will be with me until I finish the race.
“Beloved, now we are children of God.”
1 John 3: 2
“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going. I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 14: 1-6
What a comfort to know that I am His child and that I’ll be with Him in His kingdom someday. I hope that whoever reads this post will understand what I'm trying to say. If you somehow feel empty and unable to identify what you’re really looking for, just keep in mind that we have a God who can satisfy our every need and is always willing to embrace us in His loving arms. He is there. He's just waiting for you to receive His love and when you do, you will never have to wonder where you’re going because when you belong to Him, you’ll be eternally safe and secure. God Bless everyone!
Open my ears, that I may hear. Voices of truth Thou sendest clear; And while the wave-notes fall on my ear, Everything false will disappear. -Scott
