And I Have No Choice But To Wait

Every time I read the Bible I feel like a horrible person. The Bible does have a lot of demanding tasks for those of us who choose to believe in it. It’s our constant reminder (our conscious) telling us, “Should you be acting like this?” “Should you have said that?” “Do you think that’s right?” “Was that an ethical choice?” “Was that morally correct?”

It’s a beautiful book that expects a lot from its believers, and we’re okay with it. When I was young, I used to be more of a zealot, and I’d be very angry at Christians who faltered. (I know. What a self-righteous little brat. Haha!) However, now as an adult, I can understand our humanity a bit more.

Even though, because of everything that is happening in America, I do lose hope in humanity, the Bible reminds me of redemption, renewal, anew and forgiveness and humbleness. We always have a chance to make things better and to improve who we are, and everyone deserves a second chance. This, of course, cannot happen without accepting our faults, and constantly asking ourselves, “How can I make this particular part of my life better?God, guide me.”

I shall not make priests of my readers. But I will share this one flaw with you—that’s hoping that you haven’t caught on to my many flaws while reading my blogs. Haha! I am a terribly impatient person, and due to that, I get frustrated at things and people. I also get angry. It doesn’t last long. They’re little episodes, such as waiting in lines or in the lovely California traffic–just to name a few things.

But guess what the trials that I am experiencing in my life at this moment are? Most of them, if not all, involve waiting. And I have no choice but to…well, wait, which makes me think that God does have a great sense of humor. One the one hand, it’s absolutely overwhelming to my mind. On the other hand, I have to admit, I am slowly learning the art of patience…sort of. I hope so because otherwise, God is going to be quite amused for some time. Good day.

What’s your one shareable flaw? Or verse? or proverb or the like?

And in case you’re interested in what I read in the Bible, here it is:

“(22)But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,(23)gentleness, self-control. Against those who are Christ’s have crucified, the flesh with its passions and desires. (25) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. (26) Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another” Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV).
