When I was in elementary, I was fond of buying those boxes of Jack ‘n Jill Pretzels. Not because I loved (and i still love) this for my merienda but also because of the glow-in-the-dark stickers that go with each box. After enjoying my favorite merienda, I would post the stickers on my wall very creatively. And so I will be excited for the night to come because I know I’ll get to see these small glowing stuffs. And yes, as I put the lights off, I know I won’t be scared. I know I’d sleep with a smile on my lips, because I am just so amazed with how lovely these stars glow. They had put away my fears in the dark, and doze off peacefully into dreamland.
Growing up, a lot of changes were made with my room. Although my walls have not been re-painted since then, but as I grew up, I have redecorated my room maybe less than a hundred times.
And because I work during the night and sleep during the day, it has been a luxury for me to sleep in my room once or twice a week (I sleep in my parents’ room during the day).
And so with this lifestyle, I have totally forgotten about the stars that I have posted about a decade ago. Then one night, one of those precious nights when I’d have a really “goodnight sleep”, as I turned the lights off, it was then that I saw these stars once again. They are still posted in the way I have posted them years ago. Then I smiled. I had a big big big smile on my face. Those glowing stars in the dark surely had taken away the stress I had during the day. They still amaze me.
These stars are just like God’s love for us. There were times when we thought we have forgotten Him. We are grown-ups, our lifestyle has changed, and so we had put Him aside. We have changed. But when darkness comes, it would be His love that we can only see, taking away the fears, wiping away our tears, and putting us into rest with a big smile.
God doesn’t say NO.
Instead, He tells us “wait patiently for Me to act. I am preparing something for you. Something better. Something that is really precious. Something that you have never imagined. I am just waiting until you prepare your heart for it.”
So take me to a place where I can see You face to face…and all I wanna do, all I wanna do is worship You….
