When you start to see Jesus in every situation and area of your life..
there’s peace in the midst of tribulation,
there’s assurance in the midst of anxiety,
there’s provision in the midst of lack,
there’s healing in the midst of sickness,
there’s comfort in the midst of loneliness,
there’s joy in the midst of grief,
there’s courage in the midst of fear.
2 Samuel 22: 31 – As for God, His way is perfect;The word of the Lord is proven;He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
Sometimes the most heart warming realisation comes through the most mundane of activities.
Today I went as usual to the food court to have lunch. Ordering lunch is a routine, nothing exciting, nothing special, I’m kind of the ‘eat to live’ type of person. Food does not excite me that much, neither are the lunch options very thrilling.
I queued and ordered chicken and vegetable toppings for my rice. Moving along the queue, just when I was about to pay up at the cash counter, the cashier took a look at my plate. Without asking or saying anything, he took my plate, went back up the food chain and started heaping on additional toppings. I was pleasantly surprised. Obviously the cashier thought that the serving dished out to me earlier on by his co-worker was too little.
As I sat down enjoying my scrumptious lunch, I can’t help feeling thankful to God and blissful for the favour. Then I came to this realisation:
In life, some people will short change us, reject us, or treat us short of what we deserve – be it cheating us of our money, time or feelngs. I know it, I’ve been through my fair share of betrayals, heart breaks and unfair treatment. Life just seems so unfair at times and it seems you’re never going to find someone who treats you right. But take heart, ‘just when you least expect it’ (as a friend says), someone out there will come along, treasure you, honour you, make sure you’re treated right, and love you just as you are. And when that someone finds you, never let him go!
I felt it’s my Heavenly Father telling me not to lose hope but to continue believing – it’s still possible that Someone out there loves me.

Dear Beloved Child,
My love for You is unconditional, it does not depend on what you do or who you are, it’s all about who I am. I am God, I am Your Father and I am Love. To Me your’re worth more than a million stars, you’re totally worth it.
If you only knew how much I love you, you would not be living in sadness, worries, regrets. I’ve loved you since the beginning. I am the same yesterday, today and forever. Nothing can separate you from My love as I have loved you with an everlasting love.
My heart’s desire is to heal broken hearts. I am the creation of Heaven and earth – nothing is too difficult for Me. I am the author of time – nothing is ever too late for me, My timing is always perfect.
I know you have burning questions, shattered dreams and broken promises. Give them to me and in exchange live for me. When you live your life totally for me, you shall have the answers. I delight in you and desire that you delight in Me too. When you delight yourself in Me, I will give you the desires of your heart. Trust Me, I cause all things to work for good and I am making all things beautiful in My time.
Your Heavenly Father
Psalm 37:4 – Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.
“Trust Me, I will make all things beautiful in My time.
Trust Me, I will catch you when you jump.
Trust me, I will never let go of My hand.
Trust Me, I have a good plan for you.”
I stand in awe, as these words echoed in my mind as He beckons me with an outstretched hand, onto a bright path.
It was an invitation to walk on the path with Him. “Yes, I am following You, take me where you want to lead me!”
How can I ever fathom the Love of my beautiful Saviour – even if it takes eternity. I want to live like this every day, forever in Love with Him.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 – He has made everything beautiful in its time.
Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
