So today, when my son and I were in the library, I picked up a random book from the shelf. As I was flipping the pages, I saw a 10 HKD dollar note inside. I was pleasantly surprised but could not link it to the wish I wanted to have. I happily show it to my son and he wanted to keep it.
As if fate decides to play a trick on me, the dollar must have dropped off while we were moving from one floor to another. I was not happy naturally, not so much about the value of the note but the gift from God. On my way home, I asked God, why?
It is like an illusion, now you see and now you don't . I could not comprehend with my human mind. I guess it is not meant to be. Yet, I am elated that the wish has come true, despite a short visit.
How can we then increase our faith to get what we want ? I am happy and grateful that God plan for me to borrow this book, When God steps in, Miracles Happen by Neale Donald Walsch. I find it refreshing and broaden my perspective a little after my last favourite author, NG. In this book, he mentioned there are 3 steps to acquiring faith :
1. noticing - the more we notice how faith works in others lives, the more influenced we become. The energy vibration gets connected and over time, the good effect begins to rub onto us.
2. experiencing - this is when we directly experience the moments of Grace by God and we increase our faith to the next rung.
3. deciding - this is when we start to receive miracles after miracles that we no longer think it is shocking to us but something that is natural and common and we come to expect it to happen. We set our intention for miracles to take place in our lives.
Oh, the book I actually wanted to borrow though from the same author was from another branch and yet God must have plan it for me to pick this up instead. Serendipity, coincidence?
No one comes to you by accident. There is no such thing as coincidence. Nothing occurs at random. Life is not a product of chance. Events, like people, are drawn to you, by you, for your own purposes - Conversations with God
In that case, I was destined to pick up the HKD10 dollars , however brief it might be. I now send my blessing to the next person who will receive it and may need it more than I do. In peace and joy, I send out my wishes to you.
21 “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the LORD. Isaiah 59.21
