My family believes strongly in the Lord and always tells me not to worry about my tumultuous and uncertain future and to "leave it in God's hands". I know, this may be a bit too deep for most of my readers since I don't usually talk about my mess of a life and rather focus on the happiness and other facets. But, this has a good ending, I hope. :)
I live a high-stress life from a very demanding profession. People usually have misconceptions about my line of work but what they don't realize is the terrible lifestyle, amount of hours, hard work and dedication poured in. The lack of sleep, the constant need to take exams, and the whole uncertainty of the whole process until you finally reach your destination. And even when you do, it's not guaranteed. Or when you think you've landed one of the most secure positions in the world, you could be fired, without notice, as I've recently learned of one of the hardest working seniors that I've encountered. My current stresses lie in the exams I have to take and trying to figure out my future as it all looks quite dark and dismal. It's like trudging through muddy fields, it drags you down and tries to stop you, but you have to keep pushing forward.
When my family and I do get a chance to speak, they always pray for me. Tell me not to worry so much, the Lord will take care of it. Sure, I've been going about everything in a round about way but it seems that I am, every so slowly, moving forward. I've learnt that it's okay to ask for help and when you ask, you receive it. Sure, sometime there will be people who say no. But if you don't ask, it'll always be no.
But, if you ask me what kind of blessings I've received. I'd tell you, sometimes the best kind of blessings you can receive is the undying and unconditional support of your family. What about you? What (in)spires your family? What blessings do you have in your life?
