His guidance unknown to me but later revealed

This morning as I was browsing over books at a local bookstore, I started to think what I should write about in my article. Then an idea came to my mind: Godís guidance.

After I finished high school in Hong Kong, I had no desire to go to college. Rather I studied at a culinary school and became a certified chef because I wanted to be a professional cook in a Chinese restaurant. But one night, my parents talked me into pursuing a college degree in Chicago. They won, and at the same time they also shattered my dream.

In the fall quarter during my sophomore year, I took a linguistics class as one of my elective courses. The person that sat to my left was an Asian girl, who spoke fluent English without a bit of accent. Once day after class, I asked her if she was a native-born. To my surprise, she also came from Hong Kong.

Another day, if I did not see her pray before her meal at the campus cafeteria, I would not have asked her if she was a Christian. After a brief chat about Christianity, she invited me to church. Later on, God moved my heart and I accepted the Lord as my personal Savior.

As our friendship grew, we fell in love with each other. Years later, we were married in the presence of the Lord. Now we have a family of our own with two boys.

If the series of events did not happen, what would become of me today? Things do not happen coincidentally; they come to our lives as the Lord has planned according to His own purposes at His appointed time.

Proverbs 16:9 (NIV): In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

Inspiring testimony of the goodness of God. He was working out His purposes and plans in your life and before you knew Him personally. He knew YOU!!! Thanks for sharing this story!

Thank you for sharing this. I am reminded that it is always best to seek, and follow, God's will...even if we don't know exactly where He's taking us. It will always be the best place. Yours in Christ, Robert
