Okay, so basically, God somehow spoke to me when I was frying bacon for breakfast earlier… Minsan talaga you have to be sensitive to God’s cues din on when He will give you some lessons eh, hihihi!
See, today was the first time I got to actually cook bacon, hehe! And whenever I fry something, I expect it to come out of the fryer, of course, already cooked and crisp. But for the bacon, hindi ganun ang nangyari.
I realized parang masusunog na yung bacon, pero hindi parin crispy, so I had to take it out of the frying pan, onto a strainer. Then, I discovered (dahil nga first time ko magluto ng bacon, okay? Don’t judge me!) na when you take it out of the fryer, that’s the time na it hardens to a crisp. Siyempre na-amaze ako, diba?
So, this was what I realized, ito na yung parang nangusap si Lord over something as ordinary as cooking bacon…
We go through challenges in our lives diba? and sometimes, as we go through the challenges, we know and believe that it is for a purpose. It is for something that will help strengthen us, that will teach us, that will make us better persons. Pero the strength, the lesson, the “becoming better” doesn’t appear immediately after.
Kasi, after that challenge, pwedeng we are super drained. We are weakened. Parang yung bacon nung hinango ko, kuluntoy siya. Malambot. Luto, pero hindi crispy. So I let it rest on the strainer…
We all deserve to take a rest after a challenge. Alam ni Lord na we are drained of all the energy because of the challenge, because of the hardship. Kaya after that, He gives us comfort. Pinagpapahinga niya tayo. Hinahayaan tumambay ng konti, para mas maabsorb yung lesson. Makapag-muni-muni.
Tapos, nagiging crispy na as a bacon. We become better than how we are before the challenge, better than how we are while undergoing the challenge, and better that how we are immediately after the challenge.
So, are you in deep trials now? Feeling mo ba, pagod na pagod na pagod ka na? Rest ka na muna. Kahit konti lang. Hinga ng malalim. Tunganga saglit. Recover muna para you can uncover yung real strength mo. Yung real power mo. Yung totoong lutong mo sa pagharap sa kung anu pang pagsubok sa buhay.
Yun lang po. bow! Ahehe!
God bless! Salamat po sa pagbasa. Sana nangusap din si Lord sa inyo, kahit papano. Try nyo din pag after nyo magluto. Baka may ipasabi siya sa inyo na lesson.
