Psalm 91:14-16 such beautiful words from the Lord (Taken with instagram)
i actually might go blonde… hahahaha… naaaaah
It was Friday, and I got out of work by 7:30 PM, and for me it was one of those days I’m happy I’m out early. I got to the MRT station, and saw there were a lot of people. That’s normal here in the Philippines. Instead of taking a round trip, which I thought would take longer, I waited in line. A very orderly line that is.
Until finally the number of people inside the station kept growing. The once 3-column line became one huge mass of human bodies pressed against each other. So the first train came and I didn’t expect to get on… then the 2nd..then the 3rd… by the time I missed the 8th train I couldn’t breathe anymore. The only relief I found was when the train would carry a breeze as it came and left. The rest of the waiting time was utter suffocation.
The 9th train came. and went. and I wanted to cry cause I’ve been waiting for more than an hour by now. Before the 10th train came I was standing in front, so I knew I would get on.
But there’s something amazing about women at the MRT station. They can push you away until you find yourself to the side of the train, missing the door. People kept pushing. I kept holding on. Those coming out just had to come out exactly where I was so I had to make way.
Eventually I found myself being shoved and pushed against the door, without entering. But by will power I guess, i managed to squeeze in with just one last push. And the door closed.
Sometimes life has a way of pushing you up against the wall. Sometimes life feels like you have to wait forever for the right one to come along, or for you to have your turn. Sometimes you just want to push back and fight cause people are being unbelievably selfish and rude. But there’s always that 10th train to be thankful for. God is never late. God is never wrong. And He will not let you go through what you cannot handle.
I am thankful for that 10th train. It was a long and painful wait, but it came. God’s got me :) Every time and anytime :)
