A friendly and intelligent person I know was a fresh engineering graduate. His happy-go-lucky life always filled him with surprises and good things. He would eat whatever he craves for. He also buys the best wear from his favorite shops. He had everything except for one which is his identity in the society.
When he was content and had no worries of the world, people around him ask him what he was. And he had no answer. That stopped everything. For some years, he remained unemployed although he was seeking out every day. He prayed to God every day that a way be opened for him. Many of his job applications were rejected straight away. His frustration grew worse. His nature became different, from being friendly to being hostile to anyone and everyone. He became a difficult person to deal with. He would lock up his door behind him. He would only let people talk to him for brief moments.
He was losing his smile. He was grim faced. His careless words showed rage and low self-esteem. He found very hard to like anything, even food. He knew days were passing and life was becoming miserable. People would not stop bugging him. Struggling to connect, he even lost friendships who wouldn’t recognise the pressure. He moved away from them. The ones closest to him was his family but he was close to none.
God knew he was broken-hearted. He received an interview letter from a top engineering company out of the blue. He couldn’t believe his eyes. He walked in, attended it, aced it. God knew his sorrows. With his heart full of compassion, showed him riches of his mercy and he opened doors of opportunity for him. He comforted him as a father comforts his child. That’s the comfort he would not find anywhere in the world. He carried him on his shoulders thus far as a father would. He now acknowledges that Heavenly Father God is a wonder working God.
Through Lord Jesus Christ, God, the Comforter in sorrow touched his heart.
