A Day Full of Miracles // 充滿奇蹟的一天
身為主的兒女，你有否期盼著充滿徵兆和奇蹟的一生嗎？ As a child of God, do you expect to live a life full of signs and wonders?
As a child of God, do you expect to live a life full of signs and wonders?
It’s a full day of miracles and surprises. It may sound a little complicated but please bear with me – it is how God amazingly wove miracles throughout my day for me.
In the morning I was telling my mom (who hasn’t accepted Christ yet) about the favours and doors that God had opened for me at work (that was a miracle too, but a story for another day). I was so excited, telling her how I prayed that God would be with me at that particular meeting. I wanted to show her how God has answered my prayer, not thinking of it as a miracle or expecting much response from her, since she usually disregards my excitement for His signs and wonders. I almost passed out from joy when she said, “that’s a total miracle from God! And that time when you got a call the day right after your retreat, it’s got to be a sign from God.”
What a pleasant surprise after waking up from only three hours of sleep! Now, I had work later that evening, so my plan was to go to the morning service and go home to sleep before work.
It was a great message, but I was aching all over, so I slipped out early to go home to get some rest. When I got the on bus I realized that my purse was missing! I had a bad feeling that it’s not sitting on my seat at church, but I went back anyway. Of course, it wasn’t there, and I had no money go to home, so I had to wait until service ended before I could borrow some money off a friend since I have no idea where they’re sitting. Out of nowhere, I found my friend turning around staring at me during worship, so I managed to get some money off her. She said she would pray for me and I slipped out again to go home.
I knew that I left my purse on the bus on my way to church, and didn’t expect the bus company to have it, but I made a call anyway. In Hong Kong if you lose something on public transport you really wouldn’t expect to have it back; and to be honest at that point all I wanted to do was go home and sleep, but the bus company has my purse!
Going back and forth for my purse took me most of the naptime I planned to have, and I barely got enough rest for work. It didn’t help when I realized that there’s a two-hour break before I get to shoot my last scene. By this time, I was feeling feverish, it’s freezing in the studio and all I wanted to do was go home. We were a full hour behind schedule and I found myself asking God for another miracle.
All I did was ask God, and in the end they switched the shooting sequence so that I got to shoot all my scenes in one go, and, we realized that we didn’t even need to be around for that final scene! I got off work three hours early. That almost never happens!
Praise the Lord!
