When my father got his job in the Government Sector, our life is totally in place and I can say that we are truly endowed with God’s faithful blessings. It’s not that we have everything we need but at least we can buy anything we demand and we want from our parents. At that time, it’s only me and my sister Juvy who’s experiencing those wonders of the world my parents brought us. Not until I got 5 siblings more and my father has to really work very hard to bring food in our table. He even applied for a loan because his salary at that time is not enough to send us 7 in school. Since we were experiencing those financial constraints, my mother has to sacrifice also her precious belongings, her jewelries and more and was compelled to look for Watch Buyers, Diamond buyers and Jewelry buyers to sell her accessories. The most painful thing was we sold our house and lot and transferred to a smaller abode. Because of this downfall, my mother decided to put up a business like a buy and sell of agri-products in front of our house to help my father raise everything we mislaid. We really prayed hard to God and seek his presence to help us on combating the entire crises our family was experiencing.
After several years, the storm subsided. My mom’s business prospered and became lucrative. Good news, my father has been promoted and escalated to a higher position and was able to pay-off all his debts, liabilities and all of his loans. Has even bought a parcel of land and planted root crops and some fruits in their so that in due time, he can reap what he sow and support our family needs. Juvy and I have also finished our Degrees in college and my other siblings continued to their studies as well. Right now, Juvy and I still undergoing our review for CPA board and hopefully we both could pass it for us to continue our profession. Well I guess, what we experienced before connotes that God had only tested us on fire on how deep our faith, love, and trust in him in order for our family to reach this verge of happiness. He just want to gauge how strong we are as stewards on his creations if we can or cannot stand out from it. So, if you're experiencing this kind of dilemma, don't worry coz' God is just testing us on fire. Seize the day!
