I have worked in the clothing industry for over 20 years in the U.S. and Canada, and even in Hong Kong as high positions.
After leaving the workplace in the fall of 2017, I thought a bit about my future direction, but I had too many ideas, although eager to work for God, but many times it is with self-understanding that I did not follow God’s plan. I continued to pursue my own goals, while God continued his work on me at the same time.
At the end of last year, my body developed an undetermined problem, and while waiting for the results of tests, I felt afraid of an unstable and short life, and God’s Word reached my heart and penetrated my soul at this time. Proverbs 27:1 says don’t boast for tomorrow, because what happens in a day, you do not even know.
God is a God of mercy, in my time of difficulties, when I turn toward Him, and seek Him, His Word unexpectedly strengthen me and give me peace. God is changing my life thoroughly according to His plan. In this difficult time, I felt like I experience a lot of what Jonah experienced, and really experienced God at work, this difficulty also made me completely submit myself in front of the throne of God, and handed over my rights to Him, I removed all my past thoughts, stopped all my previous pursuits and plans, and quietly waited for God’s plan. I said to God: “I am here, please send me!”
Throughout this difficult experience, I also gained a lot of support and care from brothers and sisters, I received a lot of prayers and encouragement, I really felt the warmth and peace brought to me in the big family of God, I am very happy that I joined my class ceremony on January 6th, after being in the class for many years, now I am through the whole training, I have entered a whole new chapter of my life. God is faithful and wonderful; He is changing my life according to his timing and ways, thank God. In the future, I hope to become more equipped and to grow more, to serve God better, and to glorify His Name.
