Gaba
OKRyan - Ryan Mark (Banat) - June 16, 2019 - 12:00am

Last Thursday, late nako sa akong appointment kay naa koy gipaabot nga delivery. Medyo nadugay kay traffic man, so nag-motor ko padung sa akong appointment. The driver was 11 minutes away. Kay kanunay man gyud nga on silent mode akong phone nga pang text and call, wala koy ideya nga nitext diay ang driver og nangutana kun makapaabot ba ko kay medyo layo pa siya.

So pag-abot na niya, nagkanayon siya, “Abi nako wala naka nakapaabot sir—gi cancel na nimo.” I replied: No, I will not do that. I believe in karma, bai. Sahi ra sab og akoy mabawsan, mubalik ra ba gyud na nimo imong binuhatan.

Yes, mutuo gyud ko’g gaba. When people hurt you, do not fight back. Kay kun mubawos gyud ka og pasakit pud, wala nakay kalainan nila. You simply become like them.

But yes, I did not achieve this mindset overnight. Maldito gyud ko sauna. Di gyud ko pautang og higayon. Kinahanglan mubawos gyud ko. Hambugiro baya ko sauna. Because my mantra then was,” walay mudaog-daog kun walay magpadaog daog. That was because I grew up bullied and my family discriminated.

Now, I have perfected the art of choosing my battles. I agonize in silence. I cry my heartaches alone. Nakasabot na gyud ko nga mas maayo ug makaayo nga muatras kita, muhangad ug mag-ampo. Kay  naa man gyuy gaba. God never sleeps.

When you learn to let go, and let God, you find inner peace and joy.  Pero dili man gyud lalim ang magpugong, ang magpasensya. Ganahan gyud ka nga mubawos sa nagpasakit kanimo. But as you mature in faith, you will gradually understand that not all battles are worth fighting for.

Therefore, choose your battles. Naa gyuy gaba. Dili man karon dayon. Dili man ugma puhon, apan muabot gayud kini sa tukmang panahon. Pagkanunayon lamang diha sa imong pagsalig sa Ginoo.

A blessed Sunday, dear okRYANians! Pangitaa ko sa facebook: Rai Seller
