Hello Readers, we moved to Canberra. Just sat down to reminisce our fond memories while in Sydney and recount on the paths we took… there were daily grind of things, life-changing moments, defining moments, a transitional phase where you know you are not there yet. The life journey from changing baby diapers to job search, to learning new skillset, changing mindset, making unending compromises, making room for new, renewal of mind, to believe in our guts to move to Canberra. Phew! Have I said enough?
Personally, I survived the emptiness of the dry season of my life. I survived the ruthless raving waves of the sea. I did not sink in the waters of anxiety that surrounded me. Echoes of sick phone calls woke me up at nights but the Lord was with me. His lovingkindness is better than life – Psalm 63: 3.
When the raging storms rushed through without notice, there was the peace that passes understanding. I had felt the serene beauty of the gentle spirit inside of me. When my understanding said there’s no hope left, look around (anything can happen), the peace of God filled me and made me firm. The name Jesus Christ have always been my strength and hope. He loved me and gave himself for me – Galatians 2: 20
Surely goodness and mercies of God followed me every day while in Sydney. I survived my brokenness and wretchedness by His grace. I fought the good fight of faith. I was crushed but I was not broken.
12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites. Exodus 1: 12
I have experienced the severity of the desert heat, harsh treatment of life circumstances. But it did not stop us from prospering. We had huge personal loan and we prayed to pay off soon. We were sick and tired of paying back. Within a matter of few days, God gave us a desire and passion to start an IT business. My hubby and I took a leap of faith. As days went by, God brought in clients. Gradually, we had good income that we successfully closed all our loans now. Debt free in few months’ time just the way we asked for in prayer! All hail King Jesus!
I thank the Lord for his great purposes and awesome deeds in my life and family. Praise you Heavenly Father!
