In God's Hands

I love weddings! But the wedding I attended today is something really special that I must share.

Today is the wedding of a close church friend, Yan. Her life story itself is the reflection of God's unconditional love & truly a wonderful testimony of how God works in ways we can never comprehend.

Yan is an orphan. She used to work as a factory operator few years back but the factory's business was slow and not doing very well. It got her worried working in an unreliable company. Our church then happened to have a job opening. She got the job as administrative clerk. Who would have thought that the day she took up the job is the day her life changed. It was as if God has been waiting for this day to come to transform her life! After a few months, she told me she met someone and he was the preacher (he is a pastor now) who was transferred for training at the church, I was jumping for joy for her! They decided to tie the knot after a couple of years of courtship. Of course, they had some ups and downs throughout the journey. But God broke down the walls because He is good!

Her wedding is another chapter of God's overflowing love! Yan was expecting for small attendance because she have no family of her own. But the church was packed with friends and church members. She was walked down the aisle by a pastor who was also her godfather. Look at how God perfected the flaws in her life.

It is so awesome to witness how God make things work in His way and in His time. We have in past worried about Yan's future... about her job in the factory (God granted her a better job in church)... about living her whole life without a family to call her own & growing old alone (God sent her someone)... about her not finding a life partner in the small town because most eligible guys would uproot and move to bigger cities...

But God proved us that our worries were unnecessary. We can never be smarter than Him and to guess what He has planned for us. All we need is with faith and trust in Him, He makes the impossibles possible!

That reminds me to put my doubts about 1 or 2... in His hands.

Yes, God is good! But it is always easy to forget that when we are in doubts or lost in some difficulties.

This is one testimony that truly proves that God does work in ways we don't understand.

Praise the Lord!
