God moments can happen in the most simple situations.
我們是可以在最簡單的情況下與神溝通的。

Have you ever been mocked by a cab driver in HK before? Well, I know I have been told off numerous times for taking my money out too late, not knowing the Chinese names for streets etc. Cab drivers are always in a rush as time is of the essence in money making or at least, that was my general experience.

One day, I had to burn the midnight oil to meet a deadline. I woke up and had a short chat with my boyfriend who was overseas. I told him that I felt terrible with 2 hours of sleep and he prayed for me.

With disheveled hair and zero effort in my overall appearance, I dashed off into a cab as I was late for class. But when I was almost there, I found out that I forgot my wallet! The stern looking cab driver kept silent when I told him that we would have to drive back all the way to my home to get my wallet. Stuck in a helpless situation, I bbm-ed my boyfriend and he replied, “You forgot your wallet? No way is this happening! I prayed for you!”

I shook my head and grinned at his simple faith. I always had this silly mentality of ‘saving’ the prayers for more important things whilst he would pray about everything.

When I looked up, we already arrived at the university. It was right there when my little miracle happened. The cab driver turned around and said, “It’s okay. You don’t have to pay me. I don’t want you to be late for class.”

In shock, I thanked him and asked for his number so I could pay him back. He smiled and replied, “Nah, we will meet again if destiny calls for it. Now hurry and scurry to class!”

When I stepped out of the cab, I felt God’s presence so strongly that a drop of tear rolled down my cheeks. God told me that He loves it when we pray for small things too. It’s just like how my mother loves it when I ask her opinion on which dress to wear or my dad on which restaurant to dine at.

God moments can happen in the most simple situations. On that day, God taught me simple faith on a mundane cab ride to school.

你/妳有試過被的士司機責罵嗎?我就因為比錢動作慢或者說不到街道的中文名而被責罵過無數次了。我的見解是: ‘時間’對的士司機們很重要,他們那天可以賺多少錢,全因為他們可以接載多少程乘客。

有一晚,為了趕工作的死線,我要開通宵車(通宵工作)。當我醒來的時後 ,我與正在海外的男友作了一個簡短的對話,我告訴他這邊的我很辛苦,因工作很忙而只睡了兩個小時,聽後他便為我禱告。

對話後已知道會遲了上課,因此我完全不顧儀容趕出門,一看見的士便坐上去。就在差不多到達的時候,我才發覺我沒有帶錢包!當我告訴這位嚴肅的司機要掉頭的時候,他沒有回應我任何說話。在如此無助的情況下,我只好傳了一個短訊給男友,但他竟然回覆:「妳沒有帶錢包?沒可能的!我已為你禱告!」

他這一份簡單的信心真厲害!在我一直都有一個傻傻的想法,就是要將禱告留給比較重要的事項;他卻為一切都禱告並向神交上。

當我回望向的士外面,我發現已到了就讀的大學。小神蹟就在這時發生,司機先生竟對我說:「不要緊,妳不用付這程的車費了,我不想妳遲到。」

在驚訝之中,我嘗試問他的電話號碼,希望可以稍後給回車費。他笑一笑說:「不用了,若命運安排我們再見,那一定會再見的,快去上課吧!」

下車後,我很強烈的感受到神的同在,感動得哭了出來。神告訴我們,祂喜悅我們將小事向祂交上,就像媽媽很喜歡我問她應該穿甚麼裙子,或是爸爸很喜歡我問他到那家餐廳用膳。

我們是可以在最簡單的情況下與神溝通的。那天,神就在一次乘車過程之中教會我簡單的信念。
