THREE


**originally written last September 2012

Jeremiah 33:3 says “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”.

On our first official date, he asked me to bring my Bible.  I was like ”eeeerrrrr….ok”.  I mean, I have a Bible and I bring it with me BUT not on a date.  And besides, I have never met a man who asked me to bring a Bible on a casual meeting.   Anyway, so be it, I brought one. 

After finding a spot in Calaruega where we can comfortably sit, he asked me to share my fave verse and so I mentioned Jeremiah 33:3.  He shared his fave next.  We talked about it and discovered two things:  his Bible is King James and mine is NIV (do the thinking!haha)  second was our peg on our “spirituality”.

The man who asked me to discuss Jeremiah33:3 is the man I will marry three months from now.  I am still uneasy of a lot of things a married girl should do or be like so I try to always remind myself that God will tell me things I do not know – from the smallest to the most intricate  - God will let me know.

Three months.  12 weeks.

Yes, I am pressured.  Sometimes, stressed.  Most of the times, wondering.  Paano kaya? How will it be like to be married to Bryan?  How drastic will my routine change? Could I actually manage a home and a husband?  How will we be when we are in the same roof?

These are my thoughts as I put myself to sleep.  When still troubled, I recite Jeremiah 33:3 in my head.  God will tell me what to do.  He will direct me.  He has been helpful and He will persistently be.
