Faith Story by Andy Ngu
The early part of this year started off not so good – I lost my job in March. 2 weeks before that, I hurt my toe and had to have minor surgery. After that, I was admitted to the hospital for medication because of a heart muscle injury. In total, I was admitted to hospital for 7 days and 6 nights. All of a sudden, I was in the lowest point in my life.
But I always believed that there’s only one Hope, that Hope is in Him – the Lord. I also believe that there are reasons for anything that happened.
Besides praying, there was nothing much I could do. I worshipped and prayed to God most of the time during that period of time. I know that this was the time for me to restore my relationship with God, and to revive the spark in my life. I remembered at that time, the church prayer meeting was about revival too.
I trusted and believed that He will not forsake me and that He knew my needs. But when?
One day brother Joseph dated me to have dinner with Pastor Lawrence Toh from JB. During the dinner, Ps Lawrence prayed for me and said that “Two months has passed; it’s about the time already… no longer than 3 months’ time, you will get a job.”
Truly, in the following weeks I got a called for an interview and within three months, I started my new job. I had a good rest during the time; refreshed my soul and my body, and had great times with family.
I want to thank God – whatever circumstances we face He does not forsake us. He always has the best plan, in His best timing. I also want to take the opportunity to thank my wife Brenda, my CGLs brother Jonathan and sister Garesa, my ex Zone Leader brother Joseph, sister Esther Tan and her husband brother Shawn for keeping me in prayer and encouraging me during my hard time.
Last, but not least, I want to end by sharing the lyrics of one of my most favourite worship songs “Goodness of God”. HE is the goodness of God, “with my life laid down, I’m surrendered now, I give you everything. Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me.”
Amen. Glory to God.
