Ummm I am so thankful for God the he has put right ppl in right place man....
One such person is a fellow black girl SCHUMI..... Love this girl so much... She has a tremendous personality... We could strike conversation on anything and everything man... She truly is amazing.... well i really thank God for placing u in my life man....
We were out yesterday afternoon. We went to Mt Faber.. enjoyed the view there and we went for a coffee at the coffee house where we had some good chat... One thing that came out in our conversation stunned me... I mean really stunning....
Suddenly as we were talking she went "why do u have to mend things which are broken?" and i went what do u mean? and she said she observed me and she realised that i mend things that are broken and only for me to see that things gone away from me... And i stopped and thought for a while and i went u know what u r absolutely right.... she went on to say that i should look for things which are full and not broken.
I went back home late yesterday night and i thought about what she said... Things ran in my mind constantly could not bear the though and at 2 am in the morning went to take a stroll in changi beach. I went to the swing and i was just swinging and i saw this guy in the park just sitting alone by himself and he was crying his heart out man i could hear it... No one was around and the Holy spirit prompted me to pray for him where i was... Then i went "No God i don't even know what the hell is he crying for what should i pray?" He said just pray i went "y me why do i have to mend the broken?"
He just replied me one thing
" I have mend you so many times when you are broken! u know what is to be mend u r a fixer"
and i went "FINE" i started praying for the guy i was looking at the floor and i was just praying with my face on the floor. i was in that position for about 10 minutes. Suddenly the guy stopped crying when i looked up he was walking towards me and went.. " Can i talk to u ?" i said yeah sure and he was sitting in the swing next to me.. He started to share and started sharing how his life has turned upside down.. I MEAN REAL UPSIDE DOWN man... this man is going through a lot man... i prayed with him remind u this guy is a Muslim.. he left the park after praying for him..
I went back to the mode of seeking GOD... his reply was this... Just do what i told u to do... U do not know the future but truest me i will take care of u r future.... Continue mending what is broken... Coz u know what is to be mend...."
LORD i love you and long to serve you...
