“Long before He laid down earth’s foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love.” Ephesians 1:4
in two weeks, my son Miguel will attend his JS prom. though he won’t admit it, we can see how excited he is. that is the first major formal gathering where he will wear a suit.
last night, we finally found one shop with a Saudi tailor. he can speak a bit of tagalog, which made us feel comfortable with the thought that he might have many Filipino clients to be able to learn it. first thing we asked was if they accept made to order so that the suit would fit better. he said no and suggested that maybe one from his collection would fit Miguel like so.
after trying on two black suits and the pants that go with them, one fitted him handsomely except for the sleeve which was an inch too long and the pants likewise need a bit of cutting. after necessary measurements for alterations, we went home with the hope the when we pick up the suit tonight, it would fit Miguel perfectly, as if made only for him in mind.
human beings are custom-made for God’s purpose. He created us in a mold which is unique and different from each other. He created for a specific reason.
it does not matter how insignificant we may seem in the eyes of men or how unpopular we have become. we may have sinned in the past, and therefore think that even God had turned His back. but sincerely pray for his forgiveness, beg if we must and surely we would taste the fruits of the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross. then, we will be even more beautiful in His eyes again.
we fit in God’s grand plan, a living testimony to God’s endless love and mercy.
