I'm so thankful to God for all that has happened. Every negative thing that occurred to me in the past year has taught me something very important and I'm glad that I'm learning. We're starting to take care of things and God has always been there in a very real and supernatural way.
We had a family lost during the New Year (Rest in Peace, Grandpa). I got so worried and began to pray seriously so that God can comfort my father and his family during this difficult time. We all went without sleep because we were concerned that my dad wouldn't be able to get back home (He tried to get on a plane for about 24 hours but all flights were full).
Because this happened, my dad stayed with his family for an extra day and he was able to attend the burial (if he hadn't missed the flights, he would not have been able to attend). When he got here a day later, he said he was happy that the flights were full and said "I guess the Lord wanted me to be there for the funeral. And God has comforted us more than I could've imagined."
I got shaken up because earlier as I was thinking about them, I read this in Psalm 119, verse 76: "May your unfailing love be my comfort."
And verse 50: "My comfort in my suffering is this:
Your promise preserves my life."
He said that grandpa looked like he was smiling and seemed very peaceful. I'm glad to know that he left this world so peacefully.
I thank God for everything He has done for us.
Yesterday I went to college, got my I.D. and found out that financial aid would cover my expenses for class. I couldn't help but cry out of happiness. I never dreamed that I would finally get it together. I'll never doubt the Lord again.
Praise Him! xd
