THE DARK BOX

 

 

            Have you ever felt that you are trapped or imprisoned inside a dark, shallow and empty box? The time where you can't move? Like you are sucked inside it forever? That you cannot see any ways to escape from it and the only thing you can hear is your heart pumping? Well, I don't know who needs to hear this, but, hey! YOU. ARE. NOT. ALONE. I've been there. The feeling of hopelessness, being senseless and unsure of our real purpose. That we feel that we are lost and there was no one to hold on, even our own self.

 


            L
ittle did you know, God intentionally puts us inside that dark box for our own protection. For us to be saved from the cruelty that emerges outside it. Sometimes, God really tests us thru His own way. And no matter how blurry or dark it may seem; we all just need to TRUST.  HIS.  PROCESS. Maybe during those dark times, we tend to think dark things. But, what we really should do is to close our eyes, take a deep breathe, let the air out and say, "I will trust your process, Lord God". Always remember that that dark box is our protection and all the struggles that we face today hones us to be the best version of ourselves in the future. And after God opened the box, we can see the different spectrum of color, light and the enchanted beauty that he prepared for us for a long time and the feeling of gratitude and security became higher than the anxiety that we felt before. As long as you trust in Him, your worries will be swept away by your faith. So, friends, if you ever felt like you are lost today, worry no more and have rely yourself to our Lord God and you will come back to yourself safe and sound and the purpose that were once blurry is now clearly seen. The hundreds of rejections that we faced are millions of redirections that God perfectly planned for us to have a better life in the future.
 

            I also want to take this opportunity to invite everyone for us pray for our beloved world to our dear Lord God to please let us heal and surpass this novel coronavirus pandemic. Everyone, please remain safe and sanitized. Let’s keep our heart, body, mind and soul strong to defeat all of this challenges. We can surpass all of this, together. Let’s trust God that He will save this humanity and do not forget to thank Him for all the things that he have done. Always remember that on every dark situation you are in, there is always a light outside it, just keep on searching with God's grace. Thank you for your time on reading my story. Aja aja!~
