Hanggang kailan???

Hanggang kailan ako maghihintay???

Letter from a Manila girl:

Dear God,

I am about to be ready to commit
myself to someone I fell in love with. Could I take
him now? I have prayed for him for quite a time now.

Pero sabi ng Diyos:

Huwag muna, not until you are
satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by
me alone. You need to give yourself totally
unreserved to me because in me your satisfaction is
to be found. And when you learn to commit yourself
to me alone then, only then is the right time for
you to be capable of a perfect human relationship that
I have planned for you, long before you thought about it.
You will never be united with another until you are
united with me. You will never learn to speak and
understand the true language of love until you hear
me speak it. You will never learn how it is to love
and be loved until you feel the tender touch of my
LOVE.

I want you to stop planning. Stop wishing and
allow me to step in and give you the most surprising
and exciting plan that you can imagine. You are my
child. I want you to have the best. Please allow
me to bring it to you. Fix your eyes on me and
expect the greatest things as you watch. Keep
experiencing the satisfaction that I AM. Learn all
the things I tell you and be patient. Just wait.

Don't be anxious. Do not worry. Don't look around
and feel at the things others may have got. Yours
will be different because I LOVE YOU. Don't look at
things you think you want. They may not be the
things I want for you. Look up straight at me
because you might miss what I want to show you.

And then, when you're ready. I'll surprise you
with a lover far more wonderful than what you would
ever dream of. But I won't let you have it until
you are ready and the one I have prepared for you is
ready, until you are both satisfied exclusively with
me and the LIFE I have prepared for you.

FIND ME....AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT YOU THINK YOU NEED WILL BE PUT INTO YOUR LIFE!

Yours truly , God

    I'm not an expert on this, but someone just forwarded this to me, thought TLW might find this useful - my take on waiting - "some people become so much accustomed to waiting that they aren't able to see their potential matches anymore - maybe because of fear, apathy, etc" - "true love waits but you have got to look around and do your part too right?" 🙂 - filled with God's joy - nice site! and to all - enjoy looking around with these pointers in mind: 🙂

    Qualities of a Great Partner

    Happy, thoughtful, not easily angered, willing to solve problems, purity, truthful, accepts responsibility, self worth, relationship with God, accepting, willing to grow and affectionate.

    wala pa ako sa 3nd sentence ng letter and my tears are already over flowing. i had goosebumps reading and rereading the letter... it touched my mind, my heart, my soul... i did cry over some articles but this one just made a huge impact i barely breathe reading... He is right. i ought to seek Him first more than anything or anyone for that matter. i must surrender fully myself to Him before surrendering myself to that someone... maybe that's why that someone hasnt come my way yet... im not ready for a commitment. i wasnt yet mold just like the way He planned. and maybe because that's why all my relationships ended abruptly without any closures... im always left alone, hanging, without any answers nor reasons to ponder on.. sad and painful as it may be, but i have to move on. even if all the grudges and questions are agonizingly glued to my being... He made me realize i must let go all of these excess baggages i carry everyday... and from there, He will create the path meant for me and for that someone soon to come... in His time. yes, i have to patiently wait even if i have nothing left to wait for..

    ps.
    i first encounter this true love waits in my community. im pretty sure a lot of the contributers are also sfcs. 🙂

    thanks and god bless

  • eva

    Encouraging letter,I'm 32 years old en never had a bf in my entire life maybe God had plans for me or maybe accept ko si God sa buhay ko ng buong buo.Totoo rin na marami akong inisip para sa sarili ko ang totoo na pe-pressured ako sa mga taong nakapaligid sa akin pero now dahil nabasa ko ang letter and na enlighten me, na di dapat mainip because God have plans for me and I know na iyon ang da best .

    it is my first tym to enter ds site and ur posts hir are very inspiring... I'm so touched with that letter from God, although i am only 16 yrs old and i don't take love seriously, my mind became widely open after reading that letter... That's right, we have to commit urselves first to Him before commiting with sumone. Luv God above all... No one can love us truly but God, He's my savior, my bestfriend, my Lover and my One true Luv

  • kristine

    i love this site, nalaman ko to through a friend, nagvisit yata yung tlw sa camp nila nun sa tarlac, how i wish makavisit dito sa cabanatuan!!!please!!! God is our first love, our true love. And that should remain that way!!

  • Sugar

    Aww. this is nice.

    What a coincidence.. hmm but on second thought I believe God really wants me to read this post, this is his answer to my question. You see, today I wrote on my journal a letter for God. I told him that I'm already surrendering and giving him my whole life. I want him to take over. I'd like him to take the wheel.

    I got so tired fighting with life that I decided to let him be the captain of my ship. I lifted up all my problems and worries, one of them is my confusion with romantic relationships. I did ask for a sign, and really God is good he gave me the sign just a few hours after I wrote the letter.

    Thank you and God Bless you all.

  • janna

    wow. I needed to read this. God is soooo good! =) I just found out that the guy that I was praying for is already praying for someone else, and that someone else is my close friend. Haaay...pero ayun, i'm so thankful for God's comfort and love na talagang overwhelming. =)

    7 Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem,
    by the gazelles, yes, by all the wild deer:
    Don't excite love, don't stir it up,
    until the time is ripe—and you're ready.

    Song of Solomon 2:7 [The Message]

  • ^^-

    omy. im actually with my guy for some time now and well. i got into a rush. 🙂 although he wasn't my first priority. 🙂 got lots of realizations here. 🙂 thanks! 🙂 lupet. 🙂

  • andrew

    ako p lng ata ang guy n magcocomment dito. I'm 20 yrs old single and very confused about love lyf. yup! i have a girlfriend but I think that is not serious rel. in short, wala p kong naging serious rel. in my past. maybe because I don't know myself. in my work, lagi nila akong tinutukso sa isang katrabaho nmin. she is cute, nice and we are friends, actually I have a crush on her but hanggang dun lang. they keep on telling me, "kau nb?" "ang hina mo nmn sa babae" and "bakla k ata eh" i just smile on them but deep inside, I was hurt.

    I know this is not the time for that but how can I handle that situation?

  • isipisiplang

    Ahhh... that's how it is then.. I've been blinded by my insecurity and the green-eyed monster's been biting at my neck without me noticing.. Thanks to the one who posted.

    Kudos tlw! 🙂

  • mHariE

    I've been searchjing for the right person all my life...
    i always wish , ask and pray for him to come...i always get jealous of others who already found their 'RIGHT ONE'
    ,,.....not long until nabasa ko yung letter na yun..
    ngayon ko lang narealize how foolish am i to think of those things without realizing na i already found my true love.....

    and that's GOD!!!

  • mHariE

    I REALLY FEEL BAD....siguro naging too sellfish lang ako....
    sana nga..
    yung mga plans nya ang masunod sa lyf koh....

  • icy fort

    ang hirap talaga mag antay specially kapag nakikita mo na iba sila sayo......... and yan ang nararamdaman ko ngayon..... but i know God will gave to me the right person sa tamang panahon..............

  • angelica

    i read this passage from the Lord 2years ago...August 24,2005,....God gave me a copy of that...that day i gave my life to my father and my savior Jesus Christ,...and believe it or not,..that day,..he confirmed top me his revelation to me through dreams and his word the person i will be with for the rest of my life for his GLORY alone....

    that day he said...Delight in me my child and i will give the desires of heart...more than you could imagine...

    today....its been two years we've been praying for each other....

    he is not my boyfriend..he is a good and true friend...

    And i know in his own Perfect time...God will able to open his gift for me 2 years ago..

    waiting is not a waste of time but an opportunity to let GOD work mightily in an individuals life....

  • vanz

    thank you TLW 4 giving me all the answers that i need!,..
    this past few days super sad ako and i keep on asking myself why can't i be like my friends na may BF? i feel so different and i feel very insecure. parang no 1 cares about me,.. but i was wrong! GOD is always here 4 me,..no matter what happen,.. i don't need to feel this way when i'm the lucky 1 who has GOD. this letter opened my eyes very widly. i know that som1 cares,.. and He's my father,.. my true love!

  • avy

    wow, super nakarelate aku dun..

    Serve muna kay Lord, paggamit..
    Be deeply inlove with Him..
    And then soon, God will give you your God's best
    in His perfect time.. Ayeee.. whatt...

  • shylynne

    oh-so-true! God knows what is best for us we just have to wait for the right time to come...though it sounds cliche eh yun ang totoo! in our barkada ako lang ang walang boyfriend as in NBSB. At the age of 17 hindi ko hinahayaan na maovercome ako ng feelings and emotions ko, EASIER SAID THAN DONE! hindi naman kasi maaalis sakin na magtaka or magtanong ng "bakit kaya hindi ko pa siya nakikilala?" "when is he going to enter my so-called LIFE?". I believe its normal to ask those questions lalo na kung ang environment mo eh puro lovers but I just realize na everything has a purpose. It's difficult din naman to jump into a relationship na hindi ka sigurado, yung tipong puno ng uncertainty. It is still best to consult God, after all He knows what can makes us happy.Ngayon I am enjoying myself, aral ng mabuti, pagpatuloy ang strong relationship ko with God,friends,and family...in short knowing my PRIORITIES. I believe na kapag matatag na ang relationship ko with God at nakikita na niya na I'm responsible enough with my actions ibibigay rin niya yun. I trust HIM! He will never fail me=)

    LET'S NOT RUSH GUYS! ENJOY THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE! GOD IS GOOD AND SO IS LIFE!

  • jyra

    wow parang itong message na ito ay connected sa bawat tao na laging naghihintay,,, pero kung ganun talaga wla tayong magagawa at si GOD ay may iba pang plano para sa atin kaya we have to wait,
    sabi nga nila PATIENCE is a VIRTUE, and WE MUST LOVE IN ORDER TO BE LOVED,,,

  • anne morales

    wow... this site really uplifts me.... im also an nbsb and sometimes it just so tiring to wait but i know God has His best plans for my life.. sabi nga, There's a lot God has for us in our season of singleness rather than learning the art of misery and impatience... kaya patience is really a virtue..

  • Angel

    Hello, I love ur site..sobrang nakakatulong xa sken...ni recommend sken to ng friend ko...sabi nya pag minsan hnd nya alm gagawin nya, dito xa pumupunta sa site nyo..It's so nice kasi nakakatulong kayo sa mga teenagers na tulad nmen. at sa iba pa..keep it up and more powers...God Bless

  • jenny.♥

    wow. i am speechless.
    xmpre binasa q 2 kc sabi ko rn nga, "Lord, hnnggang kelan aq maghihintay?"
    tapos habang binabasa q ang sulat, parang ang sarap sumabat n "Lord, hnggang kelan nga?"
    pero ang sabi Niya,
    "I thought binigay mu n s akin ang PEN para isulat q ang love story mu? Bakit gus2 mung kunin?"

    oo nga noh,
    kung makikialam p aq s pagsusulat...
    ung tipong lalagyan q n agad ng ending ang story smantalang nsa gitna p lang ang story, e di ppngit ang story.

    tsaka, kung para aqng batang makikipag-agawan ng pen s Knya,
    marurumihan lang with useless scribbles ang love story q.

    kaya,
    i trust the Author of Love fully.
    kahit gaano katagal.♥

    i love ur site!
    keep up.
    God bless u!♥

  • Hi Jenny!

    Let God be the sole author of your love life.

    He desires you more than ever before that you be in a never ending relationship with Him.

    Recently, God has worked in my life and has brought me back into His flock. I realized that I did not backslide, I just never had a personal relationship with God. I realize too that I can never make a relationship with someone work if my personal relationship with God is a mess. Given the right partner by God is truly a blessing but being single is also a blessing from God too. The question to ask is not "I've been waiting a long time, why am I still single, Lord?", "Why does everyone I know happily married, Lord and I'm not?" but "How can I best serve you, Lord?" God knows the answer to that question and if we ask Him that, He will guide us in the way where we can be of most use to Him whether married or single.

  • Deedee,

    I thank God for that great realization. The key to have healthy relationships toward others is a relationship built in Christ alone.

  • Lea

    I'm longing for someone who will love me undivided. I was hurt a lot of times and ended the relationships wit or sometimes without closures. I was hurt and even my spiritual life was affected. I know God will give us the best.. I was really inspired by this "And then, when you’re ready. I’ll surprise you
    with a lover far more wonderful than what you would
    ever dream of. But I won’t let you have it until
    you are ready and the one I have prepared for you is
    ready, until you are both satisfied exclusively with
    me and the LIFE I have prepared for you.
    Thank you for this wonderful message.. Even though I totally move on, I still need this inspiring message.
    God bless us all:)
