It is easy to have faith in God when everything is going smoothly. Real faith is believing in God and depending on Him when we are rock bottom. I once was at rock bottom, I prayed for my situation to change, I prayed that the person who hurt me would have a change of heart, I prayed for divine intervention for the one who hurt me. Turns out that storm was my divine intervention. Faith in God and faith in His timing especially during the darkest of times is one of my greatest test in faith.
Now as I start a new life in California, I realize my faith is once again tested. I am timid and impatient, and everything I left behind has started creeping up in my heart. My family, friends, a great career are all the things I said goodbye to. My life is put on pause. Pause is not something I enjoy too much. I've always been living a busy life. Being on pause is so new to me. I pause as I learn how to drive because you really can't get around if you can't drive here. With that said, I haven't applied for a job. I am on pause.
Maybe pause is a good thing. This pause button is allowing me to get a breather, to relax and to enjoy life, to learn new things and have more time reflecting and getting to know our Creator.
How has your faith been tested?
