A month ago while my brother was having his OJT in a public hospital when I heard the news that someone stole his iPad. This morning I received an even more rattling news. Someone broke into our clinic in the province and stole EVERYTHING. From all the medicines, all the supplies (syringes, gauze, masks, gloves etc), all the equipment (stethoscope, pumps etc) EVEN ALL THE OXYGEN TANKS! Probably lost at least a hundred thousand pesos worth of things.
Honestly I feel sad about it. But I find relief in the fact that daddy is safe and he wasn’t killed or harmed during the robbery, and that in the fact that our treasures are stored in heaven where no thief may steal and no moth and rust may destroy. (Matt. 6:20)
I’m not sure what God is teaching us right now, but I do know He is in control and He has a beautiful purpose. As Paul would say, I count everything else as rubbish compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ my Lord and Savior. (Phil 3:8)
And that’s the beauty in being a child of God—-that even when things go crazy, we can always hold on to His promise when He said that “EVERYTHING works together for the GOOD of those who LOVE HIM and who are called acceding to His purpose” (Romans 8:28)
P.S. Please include us in your prayers, especially Daddy. I’m not sure how he can work now that he has nothing to work with. But more importantly please pray for his protection Thanks!
