I might have told you this story, but this time I am sharing it with you from another angle.
As my M.B.A. study was coming to an end, I desperately needed a job, a job that could secure my residential status in the U.S.A. Without such a status, I would be departed back to Hong Kong; I would have to leave my girlfriend (now my wife). Therefore, I urged myself to send out hundreds of my resumes, hoping that I would get an offer in a short period of time.
Waiting. A Bible verse grabbed my attention and I quoted it in my prayer every time I prayed to the Lord: Genesis 18:14 (NIV) “Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son.”
Sarah was old; maybe too old for a woman to have babies. But God told Abraham that his wife would have a son at the appointed time. God did keep His promise and gave Sarah a boy Isaac.
I was jobless; maybe too difficult for me without a residential status to have a job in the U.S.A. Day after day, we both became nervous as the time for my degree completion was drawing near. We waited and waited and waited until a week before my visa expired. God did provide me with a job at His appointed time.
To this day, I still hold onto the promise of God in my heart. He is the God who does all the wonders in our lives.
Waiting on the Lord is an aquired spiritual discipline with great rewards! Thank you for this testimony!
Yes Indeed! : )
