Not mentioning an almost lowbat phone… Here is my status – right the moment, God rescued me!
Note: This entry is supposed to be published on 7 Oct.
Today is my first day of work after the long Eid break + one full week of training (Away from the stress at work for 11 days – including the weekends)… And when I say stress it means working all by yourself alone. Truth be told, yes, I was almost alone in our unit – others extended their Eid break and therefore the loads are on my shoulders again. Well~ I’m not complaining… I just want to give a background of how tight this day before God answered a prayer.
So I woke up at 6:00 AM and started working from 7:00 AM with 2 cups of coffee and a cup of tea plus a handful of eggnog cookies that was left on my drawer for the next 10 hours (up to 4PM) – need to OT for an hour because of the pending tasks.
My boss jokingly asks me one (1) dirham for his car parking & when I checked my bag – my wallet is not there! 🙁 though sad & disappointed (of myself) I managed to joke about it, good hearted as he is – he offered me cash to take the taxi once I go home. With pride, I said “no worries, I can handle – I can walk — (because I always do) it is near and the weather is now better”… not thinking of what will happen next. . .

So I logged out and started walking, hungry as I am, I started planning what to eat or shall I buy something under the building’s little food shop. I was a bit uneasy, headache started because of hunger and I can feel a bit of nausea… I feel like anytime soon I may faint… 10 hours without solid isn’t that easy – though I get used to it before… I called Kokobear and informed him that I am going home, multi-tasking- while searching for my key.
I left it as well. 🙁
I don’t have my wallet, –
I don’t have a key –
And I don’t have any money left on my bag!
Plus! My back up key is on my wallet too 🙁 Huh! What a day!
The back-up KEY!
I start to feel more dizzy! I continue walking and jokingly talk to God (praying actually)…
“Lord~ it is impossible that you leave me with nothing…”
… and on my head with a child like faith – I tried to go over my the pockets!!! to my surprise – I touched a folded paper on my back pocket and in split seconds I prayed – Lord is it the one? I took it (with a pounding heart) and found 45/- dirhams! Hehehe it pays good to sometimes repeat jeans… ^^ – First issue solved! I’ve got an answered prayer in an instant!
God sent me this 45/- AED! Thank you po 🙂
I rushed to the nearest restaurant and feed the hungry tummy! Praise God!!!
Naka chicken inasal tawon ang gutom… hehehe
Plus na refresh ang utok with this sago at gulaman.
Now the next problem is the key – Kokobear is still at work and though I tried to delay eating, I was finished earlier and most of the time, no one is still in the flat during that time. I was hesitant to make a doorbell because of this fact, but I kept the childlike faith & say a little prayer before doing it. To my wildest surprise, it took me only once and in few seconds, one of the Kuya opened the door!
Whoooooohooo!!! I can’t contain my amazement! The only thing I did was smile & and say THANK YOU!

It is during these moment that God shows – he never blinks. He may delay some requests but He is never late in answering those prayers that needs an urgent answer.
Sabi nga ni Father Arlo, a person that THINKS, THANKS!
Praising God yesterday, today & tomorrow.
Today, and even on daily basis – I try to recognise every little blessing He bestows in my life.
