If I were to sum up 2017 in one word, it would be DRAMA! Oh my God!
From job uncertainties to last minute miracles, from disappointments and betrayals to second chances and forgiveness, from being overwhelmed with a new job, new language, new country to coping with peculiar colleagues, from drowning in routine to new adventures, from reconnecting with old friends to meeting new ones.
I wish I could say that I went through the ups and downs with the right attitude, but I was not always on my best behaviour. Thankfully it’s about Christ’s redeeming work and not my performance rate.
I received answers to prayers that I didn’t realize were answers because I had given up on expecting answers. But God surprised me, and one lesson I learnt is to trust that the Lord has heard my prayers and knows my needs and will answer in His own way and time.
Going into 2018, I look forward to what adventures await me.
