The Sign : An Answered Prayer

 

It was 27th of November 2011, the date I dare not to forget. When I asked God to give me a sign whom to choose between my boyfriend and my current suitor.  And guess whom God told me to choose.

It was hard for me to admit to others that my relationship with my boyfriend Tim is shaking, for a long time. I was just pretending that everything is always ok. Everybody thought that soon I’ll get married.  I thought too.

We’ve been away from each other for more than 3 years. We never had a real date. Imagine that. He was just texting and calling me once in awhile. Whenever his free, we also chat on ym.

Rey is different. We just met around 3 months ago. He was spontaneous. He knows how to make me smile in just one text message. Our conversation went on and on. Then, unexpectedly, he asked if I can be his girlfriend and I replied, “I have a boyfriend.” He answered back, “ …but I can be your second. I think I can handle that.” I can’t answer back. I know it is out of values. I want and love to be his but my mind said, I should not let him tempt me to forget about what is right. But my heart shouts for him and for Tim too.

Then that Sunday, I went to church. I’m so confused. I can’t even understand the homily. I was standing near the door. I prayed intently. “God, please help me make the right decision. Should I break up with Tim and let that 3 years be bygone. Or choose Rey and take the risks.  Give me a sign. After this mass, whoever calls me first as I walk out of the door will be the man that I should pursuit. “

I wasn’t expecting it. I checked on my phone, it was ringing but I missed it. It was Rey.

Again, I was confused. Why would God tell me that I should choose Rey? I really don’t know him that much. Me and Tim have been together for more than 3 years!

I laughed to myself. God gave me the sign and yet I don’t believe it. I realized how shallow my faith in God.

I ignored the sign.

I messaged Rey to tell him my decision. I decided to keep my relationship with Tim. But he wouldn’t accept. He said that he is willing to keep me, not as a girlfriend but as a friend.

I was torn with his proposition. I couldn’t say no to him.

December 1. I’m still confused. I still feel I’m cheating on my boyfriend. Then I went back on the photograph on his FB that almost cause our break-up last September. I read through the messages. Then out of doubt, I sent a message to Helen, the name of the girl on the picture, asking her if Tim is her boyfriend. She replied back right away. We exchange messages.

I couldn’t believe what she was saying. I’m the other woman. I never dreamed of becoming a “mistress”.  I don’t received any explanation from Tim. It was painful.

Now I understand why God gave me that sign. I was thankful. God gave me the answers to my long list of questions why he was like that to me. So cold and always avoiding topic about marriage.

I should have believed Him.

I learn that trusting Him is the best means of finding answers to our confused mind.

 

Did I pursue Rey after that break-up with my long time boyfriend?
