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.
