God is with us. God is with me.
I was reading the book of Acts. While reading the Bible I had this wonderful picture of God using cowardly deserters to suddenly become brave men of the faith who were willing to stand up for the gospel of Christ. The Holy Spirit transformed them. Did miracles through them. And left the world forever changed.
At the start of this week, I asked God to do something great in me. Something that people would see as the work of the Holy Spirit. Something BIG.
For the last three days by God’s grace, I’ve been able to leave work early. (And by 7:00-7:30 that’s EARLY!!! haha) And the load of work hasn’t really decreased, but somehow I’m able to go home on time. Yesterday I was able to sleep for 8 hours on a regular work day. Small things I often take for granted, but I realized are BIG blessings.
I realized that God didn’t have to do something big for me to know He was with me. He didn’t have to move mountains to assure that His Holy Spirit was empowering me all the way. I realized that God didn’t want me to have a “showy” experience, but rather one that would teach me the importance of constantly leaning on Him for help.
Going home early may not seem like the biggest miracle of life, but when you work in the hotel industry going home early is a luxury. The Holy Spirit has indeed been so good and faithful, as I continue to walk in His presence I find more joy at work, more patience with clients, and more strength to do what is required. God be praised! :) Indeed He is with us.
P.S.S. Super cute highlight for the day.
Me: Ma’am would you like to buy some mooncakes?
Client: I don’t really like it, I’ve had bad experiences
Me: Oh really? You should try some of ours. I’ll bring you to our counter you can try everything there.
Client: Oh okay :)
*Walks client to counter and lets her taste the samples*
Me: So how is it?
