God’s Countless Blessing


For as long as I can remember, all I have to worry about are school work, exams, and grades.  Then, Suddenly I have to worry about writing resumes, finding job, future plans and so on.  I really felt lost and clueless.  After spending three fruitless months searching for a suitable job, I still felt peaceful.  I don’t know what’s this all about but since I have a lot of time I might as well make use of this period of time to improve my relationship with God.  In three months time, I felt closer to Him than I’ll able be.  Then, God started to prepare me for the move to California, but I use all kinds of excuse to stay in Oklahoma.

I said, Lord, I’m serving in this church.  I can’t just go and let others down.  Then, God said, you concentrated too much on the responsibilities that you forget you’re supposed to serve me.  With that, God makes me realize that it doesn’t matter how good I do my job when I try to please the wrong person.  I said, Lord, I don’t know anyone well enough to go to CA.  But God said, I’ll be with you.  Then, God had inspired a brother in CA to encourage me to come to CA.  Now, I can’t use that excuse anymore.  I said, but Lord, there is no job opening for me there.  After a few days, the same brother told me that there is a job opportunity in his friend’s company.  He felt that I should go and try for this job.  Finally, after all of the excuses, I said, okay Lord, I’ll go for the job interview, but if I didn’t get this job, I’ll come back immediately.  While I don’t know whether God granted my request or not, I had a sad feeling that it would be a while until I see Oklahoma again when I’m on the plane leaving OK.  After I arrived in CA, God, through brothers and sisters, had prepared everything for me.  In spite of this, I still wanted to go back to OK.  After a week in CA, the company that I interviewed with offered me a job.  I had a mixed feeling at that time, I’m happy because this job is related to my major and I can learn a lot from there.  Yet, at the same time I feel sad because accepting this job offering would mean that I had to leave OK.  Since, He is all-powerful and all-knowing God, He knows that is the best for me.  After all, He promised that He’d provide the best for me.  With this thought, I finally did what I should have done a long time ago.  I gave up the plan to stay in OK.

Looking back, I really feel that God is with me all the way and that He is in front of me to make the way easier for me to walk on.  He not only provides me with a job, He also prepares a place for me to stay, where I don’t have to worry about the transportation.  In less than two weeks, I found a job and place to stay.  Praise the Lord and thanks for your faithfulness.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about you body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?” (Matthew 6: 25-26)
