I Express, I Reblog, I Agree.
A sudden thought came to me, in the midst of listening to songs and thinking about things ( and struggling through some things of my own)
"All friendships go through a test of time. Whether you know it or not. The more important the friendship is to you, the more you need to go through the test. It is when you go through this test that you’ll see if your friendship is able to last through the storms.
And if you are unable to withstand the test; if you are not able to accept it, then this friendship is not worth your time because you don’t love the person at all. You don’t treasure the person enough to want to go through this.
If your friendship last through these, it will only get stronger. But if either of you drops out, you two understand that it’s not meant to be”
It’s something like that… But I’m thankful for this reminder. Only through trials and obstacles that we conquer, we get stronger and things will get stronger.
I hope our friendship will get stronger, and not fade. Being a person who never really had friends who would stay, I’ve always been afraid. Sometimes paranoid, sometimes over-possessive. Not because I want to, but because of the people around me and past experiences.
So I guess I never really knew about friendships. Many times if I choose to let friendships go, they will. But the more I grab, the more it’ll go as well. Which is why I guess sometimes I just let it be.
HAHAHHA but this one. It hasn’t been an easy journey. It’s even harder for me, to be at this stage. It’s between giving in to my impulses and trusting in what will really come to past.
I’ve been so afraid, so so afraid that things will turn out to be like how it was from Simon.
I didn’t tried to pursue it, though I kept asking what happened.
But I knew what happened.
And I’ve tried making things normal
But he took 2 years. 2 years to have a proper hi bye. 2 years couldn’t even get us to have a proper reconciliation. And now? Hahaha I don’t even know.
Probably just some random acquaintance of his.
Which is why I’m so afraid for her too.
I’m so so afraid.
And things are becoming exactly like how it was.
Just that, it wasn’t a short time.
That what make things even more difficult.
That makes what lingers.
The love was so genuine
That it was impossible to have deny it.
It was cause, I haven’t been loved like that at all.
Because of the lack of friends
Because of impulsivity.
Because I don’t want it to end up like how the past is.
But the best thing to do,
Is to wait.
And to surrender it to God.
Whether if it had been human made, or God made.
The best thing is to surrender.
(And perhaps to shut my brain down like now lol)
You would have been here to say that you’re here
You would have been here to “save me”.
I would have been ranting to you,
breaking down in front of you.
Guess I was a burden, a different kind of burden,
- God is pruning you. Don’t resist.
- You are a fruit bearer. Fruit bearing trees get pruned the most.
- You are being led into a radical life change.
- God is always faithful and always on time.
- Be consistent on the path God has for you.
- He’s still restoring you!

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. (Genesis 50:20)
These are the words spoken by Joseph to his brothers, years after they threw him in a well and left him for dead, then decided it would be better to sell him into slavery. God took Joseph on quite a journey; from slavery to the palace to prison, and back to the palace, where he landed a position as second in command to Pharaoh and in charge of the whole land of Egypt. Certainly, Joseph’s brothers intended to harm him, but the sovereign God never wastes our time.
Did you hear that? God never wastes our time.
It may seem like it now as you live between jobs wondering how in the world you will be able to pay the bills…
It may seem like it now as you wait for God to bring the right mate into your life…
It may seem like it now as you recover from another round of chemo…
It may seem like it now as you live in the consequences of your sin…
It may seem like it now as you do your best to get through the day with your broken heart…
It may seem like it now as you recover from the death of a dream…
It may seem like it now as your life has seemingly been placed on hold…
But…the Sovereign, Almighty, All-Powerful God never wastes our time.
So hang in there! God is using every minute (every nano-second) to mold you into the person he needs you to be for the next leg of the journey. God is at work…He loves you with an unconditional love…He has given you an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade…He has purchased you with the precious blood of his Son. He has eternity invested in you! Ask him what he wants you to learn and how he wants you to respond to today’s assignment. He is not wasting your time.
Father, for those who feel like they are stuck and their life is on hold…for those reeling from a difficult relationship or circumstance…please encourage them today with some tangible evidence that you are not wasting their time. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Robin, you’re free.
