Faith Story by June Kate Primus
The day our MD announced that our HQ was going to close down our KK office in 2 months’ time, my colleagues cried. I felt sad too.
I was in the middle of a three-day fast, and I chose to the washroom to pray quietly, asking God to strengthen us, and that we would not feel discouraged. I really put my trust in God, believing that God will always provide. I was thanking God, believing that for everything that happens, there’s a reason to be joyful!
The next day, I found myself feeling totally at peace; my heart was singing.. The lyrics of an Indonesian worship song 😊 “Waktu Tuhan” translates “everything that happen in my life, God’s promise makes me alive, I trust and believe in God’s timing, all will become beautiful in His time..”
Like most people, I cannot afford to not have income as there are financial commitments to be met. I should be feeling anxious and worried.. but instead I feel totally at peace!
At that moment, God’s word became alive and I understood what it meant to have God’s peace as mentioned in John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
To cut the story short, I was the last person to leave the company as I had to assist with the winding up. During this time, I got pregnant, but was still receiving income (half-pay) by just being on “standby mode” .
My plan was to find a job after the confinement period. However, without, one month after I gave birth, company contacted me for an interview. My previous MD had recommended. A month after that, I started work – the income never stopped!
Truly God is our provider, and God’s timing is perfect! Never early and never late! To God be the glory!
