Early Sunday Morning

it is so weird – there are many things going on in my life but i have no motivation to write about anything. since the tour was over 4 days ago, i have got no excuses of not blogging. i guess sometimes when you have too much on your mind you just don’t know where to find the start.

so i will try to at least keep a story a day. what is the purpose of having to write every day, you may ask. the initial intention for me was to keep records of my thoughts and see how i progress throughout a year. but it also helps me see God’s grace and blessings through every day life.

so last night, i was getting ready to shower only to find that the water stopped running. it used to happen once. that time, i had to use the shower room at compassion office. this time, it is a bit different as it is sunday. i can’t bear the thought of not showering before starting the day. so i prayed, last night, that God would grant me the water to shower in the morning.

i went to sleep but it wasn’t deep. and i kept waking up because of mosquito bites. finally, at 6 in the morning, i decided to get up and checked the water. it was running! so not wanting to lose my chance, i went right in to the shower. the cold water woke me up. and i have been up ever since. i have had time to read the Bible, fold my laundry, eat breakfast, read a couple more chapters of francine rivers’ “My Daughter’s Dream” and get online. i have enjoyed it so much. my day seems to be longer when i am up early. but it isn’t usually the case for everyday. i feel so productive right now.

so that is a story of how God answered my prayer. it is small and insignificant but God does listen to our prayers. and it is a comfort i cling to when things get out of hand or disappointment hits. He hears and answers.

i am going to church now.

    It is awesome how we can rely on God for all the things in our lives. Your writing reminds me of this and how loving our God is. We need Him for everything and He is there to supply all our needs.
