This is an open letter to my future love. I don’t know who you are (or maybe, I already do). I don’t know where you are right now, but I am sure of one thing, the Lord is preparing your heart for me. And one day, when I finally get to meet you, I can already write a name on this letter I wrote today. While I am waiting for you, I will worship the Lord.

Mahal Ko,

I don’t know who you are yet (or I may already know who you are) or what you’re doing right now. It’s possible that you are with another person or is waiting like me, too.
But one thing is for sure, I know that God is preparing you for me and I am patiently waiting for that day, when God reveals who you are in my life.

I trust that God can make us happen, and he will allow us to happen.
He will allow us to take on a journey together because He wants us to love and be loved.
I am looking forward to that day na titignan kita at ngingiti ako, magpapasalamat ako sa Diyos sa buhay mo because in you, I will always have a friend, a partner.

Things will not always go as we plan, we will mess up. But God never will.
He already fulfilled all the desires in our hearts that only ourselves know. He already fulfilled all our dreams. We are already victorious. Panonoorin nalang natin kung pano iunfold ni Lord lahat yan sa buhay natin.

Our story is already written, ipagdarasal nalang natin.
We have a lot of battles to fight but we will fear nothing because we have a God who lives in us, who have already given us a life full of prosperity and not harm, a life full of hope and a good future. We are fighting not for victory but from victory!
The battle is not ours, it’s His.

Ngayon palang, ipinaaalam ko na sayo na on my own, I cannot give you a love like that in Corinthians 13. I can be very impatient, I am not kind sometimes. I envy and I get insecure of so many things. I boast. I get proud.

There will also be times that I may dishonor others for my own sake. I may think about my self a lot. I may get angry easily. I may lie. I may fail to protect you, to always trust you.
I may lose hope, I may get tired.

Kung sa efforts lang nating dalawa, we are going to fail.
My love for you, on my own efforts will certainly fail.

But God’s love for us won’t. This love we have is no match for that greater love na nagdecide, a thousand years ago, that you and I are worth dying for.
The love that surrendered His throne in heaven so we could enjoy what we we’ll soon have.

His love for us will never fail, at yun rin ang pagmamahal na panghahawakan ko para masuportahan kita sa lahat ng gagawin mo sa buhay, para maappreciate ko lahat ng bagay na gagawin mo para sa akin. Para maipaalala ko sayo yung mga bagay na dapat at hindi mo dapat gawin without having to manipulate you.

Yun ang pagmamahal na panghahawakan ko para hindi tayo maging mapagmataas at para maintindihan kita hindi lang bilang partner ko, kundi bilang isang tao. Irerespeto kita. I will respect your privacy and I will understand your ego.

It is the same love that I will hold on to so that in the many years to come, I may still be able to be your best friend, your sister, your partner.

I want you to know that you don’t have to prioritize me.
Mas gusto kong yung puso mo ay para sa pag-seserve sa Panginoon, sa sarili mo at sa pamilya mo. Wag mo akong alalahanin, andito lang ako sa likod mo habang inaabot mo lahat ng pangarap mo.

Hindi kita susukuan, kasama mo akong mananalangin sa Panginoon.
Kung kailangan mo ng lakas, hihingi tayo sa Kanya.
Kung minsan hindi natin maiintindihan ang mga bagay, tatawagin natin Siya.

If it is in His will that we end up together, let it be done.
Because of His love, merong FOREVER.
God is writing our love story, I believe.
And we both do not know what the future hold but we trust on Who holds the future.
Hindi ako nagmamadali, pero I can’t wait to see you, and know you.

Naniniwala akong you are worth the wait, Mahal Ko.
Alam kong pag sumugal ako sayo, hindi ako matatalo.

Yours,
Ang Babaeng Naghihintay Sayo
