I will never leave you not forsake you… Hebrew 13: 5
It was like another day when I came home, since I lived in another city. For me, coming home was like torturing myself. My parents didn’t approve with my job. They didn’t want me worked as a lecturer because they hoped me became a businessman. As we all knew that being a businessman promised you a better future than being a lecturer. However, it was my choice. And as the consequence, listening to their argument was my routine schedule when I was at home.
Since I couldn’t discuss my difficulties with my parents, that’s because they blamed me for my choice, I found it was hard to tell them about my feel, my fear and my struggle. It seemed that I left alone and no one supported me. In the moment like that, sometimes I asked God why He put me in that situation and when He would help me out of it. I have prayed and prayed for many times, but I felt that it didn’t change anything.
But today, I thought that He answered my pray. Today my sister borrowed some books, one of them was the Chicken Soup book. Actually I love reading, but I didn’t put my eyes on them. I forgot how long I read my last Chicken Soup book. It was some years ago. I used to love reading that kind of book, but now I thought that it was not interesting anymore.
I didn’t know what made me take the book and read it. It was a Chicken Soup about the answered prays. Reading it made me refreshed. It seemed like that God spoke to me using the book, using the stories inside. Somehow I thought that it was His way to strengthen my faith. I believed that nothing happened by accident but it was His work. It was His work when my sister asked me to accompany her to the library that day. It was His work too when He lent the books to my sister since I was not interesting about any book in the library. And it was His work too when suddenly I wanted to read it. The most important thing, I really believed He chose the right time that He put the book when I was at home.
I don’t know how about you, but I believe there were some moments when He spoke to you, answered your pray using some unpredictable ways. That’s how He works. Our task is just opening our ears and our heart to listen to His answers.
