Thank You

 

My joy and gratitude for getting a new job through such a quick and almost miraculous manner was a bit subdued yesterday, whilst I digested the news and the fact that I had finally rejoined the workforce after four months of break and rest. Today after my quiet time, I have thanksgiving bubbling inside – God is never late. Whilst His timing may not agree with ours, He has given me valuable lessons in my time of waiting.

I am also grateful to my friends and families who were praying for me, sustaining me spiritually from nearby and afar. Again, I’m also thankful for the help that I received from you-know-who-you-are when I was nearly penniless. You have such a big heart and I’m privileged to have you as a friend in good times and bad times, just when some had abandoned me.

Like a boy who asked something from his Father, and waited until his Father delivered him what his heart’s desire, I feel embarassed now of my ever doubting that He will deliver. I’m embarassed by my lack of fervour; for those who know me superficially, they will see a faithful man, who can remain joyful and calm in the midst of the storm. However, those who know me intimately, including you, as my blog reader, know how turbulent my feelings can be. It’s a lesson that I need to remember in the future, and through my blog, I want to remember this as well, to never ever doubt God’s impeccable timing and His ability to deliver. Whilst I could attribute my new job to luck, fate, the so-called randomness of life and other impersonal phenomenons, I choose to attribute it to God’s loving plan. 🙂

What can I do but thank You,
What can I do but give my life to You
Hallelujah, hallelujah
What can I do but praise You,
Everyday make everything I do a hallelujah
A hallelujah, hallelujah

I've finally relented to the lures of blogging - and for those who care, well, I'm a self-confessed geek who's a wanderer at heart, who thinks and analyses too much, and who's trying hard to hold on to his 7-year old inner persona.
