Glimpses of God. You don’t always see them or recognise them but this week they were hard to miss. On Tuesday, I had attempted to purchase some lunch downstairs and when paying I was informed, they could not accept large bills. Finding my octopus, I made the transaction and left, a while later I went looking for my money. I had that feeling. Yes, my money was gone. I prayed and returned to the shop in hope. The cashier handed me my money, stating that a customer had passed it to her. In disbelief she said, “You are lucky.” Yes, I was!
Today, I had another glimpse. When I left home it was not raining, however, by the time I arrived at my destination it was a down pour. As I sat in the car, hoping for a long red light, I sighed, “I don’t have an umbrella.” At that, the taxi driver reached back and handed me his umbrella (with the cover) and said, “keep it.” Amazing! What a blessed week - opportunities to see glimpses of God working through people.
In a city, riddled with fear, anxiety and uncertainty, God is at work. God has not forgotten nor abandoned us, and we, fellow journeyers through life, have not forgotten how to care for one another other.
Currently there are some urgent needs with two of our ministry partners, Hong Kong Network for the Poor http://www.hkcnp.org.hk/news/maskdonation2020/ and International China Concern https://chinaconcern.org/. If you can help in any way, I know it would be appreciated.
May we continue to reach out and care for one another. May we all see glimpses of God’s mercy and grace and be used by Him, and for His glory.
May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus,
