Bakit nga ba wrong timing lagi? Yan ang palaging tanong ng lahat ng umiibig, nag-iintay, nasasaktan at umaasa sa love at sa kung ano-ano pa. We all know that timing is everything, pero bakit nga ba palaging wrong timing? Maybe atat tayo or may hinahabol tayong “deadline” or “quota” sa buhay or somewhat may pinangungunahan tayo.

Isa rin ako sa mga nagtatanong nyan sa buhay at sa season of waiting ko. Paano ba masasabing wrong timing. Naalala ko, ang sabi sa akin ng kaibigan ko (na inibig ko o sininta ko), nung naglaydown ako sa kanya last year, “…naaappreciate ko ung pagla-laydown mo pero it’s a bit too late…” Paano ba talaga? Wrong timing is either too early or too late ung timing. Paano mo naman malalaman na it’s time na? Or kung right timing? ‘Yan ang hindi ko din alam at mapaliwanag.

Thinking about wrong or right timing is a sign na nag-iintay ka, or may iniintay ka. According to Ecclesiastes 3:1, ” There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heavens..” We are on a different season of our life. Kung nag-iintay ka ngayon, yan yung season mo. Mahirap talaga maghintay lalo na kung medyo matagal na; at kung nadidiskaril tayo dahil wrong timing. May mga side trips tayo madadaanan habang nag-iintay tayo; may pagkakataon din na nag-iintay tayo sa wala. Kaya maraming bumibitaw at napapagod sa pag-iintay dahil mahirap talaga mag-intay.

While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:


Wrong timing is a sign na nadidiskaril tayo sa waiting journey natin. We tend to expect na tama na un, at iyon na ung pinaka-iintay natin – career growth, or sya na ba ung God’s best. Madalas mo matatanong sa sarili mo eto kung kailan ba? Madalas inaaway mo pa si God kung bakit di pa Nya ibigay ung pinakaabangan mo career breakthrough, di ka pa Nya pinapakilala sa taong nilaan sa’yo or di ka pa Nya pinapayagan pumasok sa buhay nya. We tend to blame everyone for that “wrong timing”. But, do we think that we are also accountable for that so-called wrong timing?

How can we get the right timing? Ang sagot ko dyan ay hindi ko din alam. Only God knows when He will fulfill His promise to us. Madaming characters na binanggit sa Bible ng mga naghintay at nakareceive ng promise kay God na-right timing. Remember, Abraman receive his promise 25 years after. Pero sa totoo lang, nainip din sila, nabiktima din sila ng wrong timing (ung affair nya ka Hagar), pero God put him back on track. We should remember that realizing na wrong timing means God is actually putting us back on track in our season of waiting. There are times na masakit, sagad sa buto at halos bumitaw na tayo, pero that’s how God act – He acts on the way tailor fit to us, kilala Nya tayo mag-isip at alam Nya ung desire ng heart natin. Sya din nakakaalam kung hanggang kailan tayo maghihintay. Pero, on our season of waiting, God is making some calibration or pruning on our heart para pag dumating na ung time na ibibigay na Nya ung promise Nya, we are ready to receive it. All He wants from us is to have faith in Him and our full trust. He knows what He’s doing, wag kang ano… Nang-aano ka eh…

Lesson learned; hindi ka pinaghihintay ni God ng dahil sa wala lang, inihahanda Nya tayo sa tamang timing. Sabi nga, timing is everything. Kaya huwag kang masyadong magdamdam kung palaging wrong timing, darating ding ung panahon at pagkakataon mo. Normal lang magdamdam kasi kasama sa buhay yan, you are expectant kasi. Later on, you will thank God on why He allowed you to experience those side trips, those nauldlot na ewan, ung feeling na wrong timing, etc. Huwag kang atat kaibigan, magtiwala ka lang kay God. Enjoy your season of waiting, maximize it. Kung naatat ka at nadiskaril, it’s not too late, balik ka lang kay God. Take heart, have faith. Hindi ka naman nag-iisa, kasama mo si God… =)
