My spiritual trip to the land of Grace

Precisely 30 days ago I lost my only source of income, 
thanks to the greedy and broken world we live in. 

For a few days I was angry, 
and then realized it was pointless being angry with anyone.
It is also pointless trying to fix the broken ways of people,
Instead, it is better to be yourself, be an example,
and live out the way you want the world to be.
As someone once said, 
"It is better to light a candle, than to curse the darkness"

Having experienced losses and uncertainties over the past 50 years, 
I figured that I must place my trust in GOD my creator, 
and not with anybody or anything.
HE created me, so HE knows what lies ahead in my life!

On the journey of life, 
I have no idea what lies around the next curve, 
So I always pause the journey to look at where I came from,
It helps me navigate the rest of the route to where I'm heading to.

Because HE has led me safely till here, till now!

We are all on different journeys,
And we all have our doubts, concerns and questions of the future.

There were times these past weeks when I felt hopeless and down, 
but I knew that those feelings were from the devil. 
Because truth is, all negativity is always from the devil. 
Instead of focusing on my situation, 
I decided to focus on GOD to avoid sinking
(That's me in the yellow shirt)

I prayed a lot, went on many long walks. 
You see, GOD is everywhere, by the lake, in the cool evening breeze,
and it is easier to communicate with HIM when you are far away from people, 
because people are distractions.

I knew my situation would eventually resolve, but I had no idea when.
The people I interacted with only made promises,
not one of them stuck to their word!
What a waste of time.
I've learnt that if I am depending on GOD 
and waiting for HIM,
I need to go by HIS time, not my time, or yours

Then one fine day I get a phone call ...
From someone I never contacted ...
Exactly 30 days later ...
From an angel

This my friend, is how an unseen GOD works in our lives,
Yes, in this day and age! 
And I can never thank GOD enough for HIS Grace.
I wish you Peace on your journey.

"I won't fear what tomorrow brings
With each morning I'll rise and sing
My God's love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea"
