Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 24 – 30 September 2017
“Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”
In Manila, it is common for people to leave hours before the actual start of working time or come home hours after work (aside from usual after-work getaways) because of the traffic situation. Cars can be regularly seen piling up in the streets while thousands of commuters wait in several hours for buses or trains to arrive and/or move. To make matters worse, there are also occasional train breakdowns which infuriates commuters even more.
Waiting cannot always be avoided. However, waiting for our Lord is something we can look forward as we know that God does His promises no matter what happens. We can be rest assured that what we are waiting for in His time will be fruitful, as we can trust on His promises as never-failing, never-faltering and all-encompassing.
Things may not always come in time we expect them to and Lord’s own coming may even come in an unexpected time, but one thing is for sure: He will come someday. After then, all our waiting will be over.
God’s promises never fail.
