Protected From Accident With No Broken Bones!

 

On 2 December 2016, I was driving along South Buona Vista Road. There were five of us in the car including myself, my wife, my 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter and a fellow server from church, Cleo.

At about 11.25pm, our car reached a bend and suddenly, we heard a screeching sound coming from the opposite lane. Then, I saw the headlights of a car approaching straight towards us.

My wife shouted “Jesus!” And at that moment, I felt someone holding my left hand and steering our car to the left. The next thing we knew, our car got hit and it spun to the right. As for the car that hit us, it went on to hit the railing before stopping at around 50 to 60 metres away from my lane.

I heard my children screaming in the backseat. When I turned around and that saw that everyone was safe, I took a deep breath and said, “Thank You, Jesus!” I then got out of the car to examine the damages and realised that my right rear tyre and the right side of the car body were badly hit.

In fact, Cleo was supposed to alight at a bus stop earlier but stayed on as we would be passing by her place and could drop her closer to home. Because of this, she was able to hug my children during the collision and pulled them away from the right side of the car. At that point, I truly appreciate Pastor Prince for sharing Psalm 91, the psalm of protection, with the church and for praying for us every Sunday. I believe God had shielded us from this accident and kept death at bay.

After the accident, I was brought to the hospital for observation as I had experienced pain running down from my neck to my waist. It turned out that I had a spongy muscle in my spine area and had to see a specialist in a few weeks’ time.

On 7 December 2016, I went back to the hospital as I was still experiencing pain in my back. This time around, the doctors discovered that I had a hairline crack in my neck bone and my pelvis was also slightly chipped. I was told to rest as much as possible. The doctor even wanted me to be admitted to the hospital immediately.

However, I told the doctor to give us some time. We asked our fellow servers to keep me in prayer. My family also prayed, applied the anointing oil on the affected spot for me. I also declared that as Jesus is whole and has no broken bones, so am I.

I then told the doctor I did not want to be admitted and requested that he put me through further tests. He agreed after I signed the indemnity form, stating that they would not be held responsible should anything happen to me.

I was scheduled to see a specialist on 9 December 2016 at 3.50pm. At around 3.43pm, a fellow server sent me a message saying that God was working things out for me and miracles would manifest. I replied her saying that I believed that Jesus works miracles and I would receive a favourable answer from the doctor.

Shortly after, the specialist told me that my X-rays revealed that there were no cracks in my bones. What the doctor saw previously could be my ageing bones. Other than that, I was perfectly fine and I need not worry. Upon hearing this, my tears rolled down uncontrollably.

Since that day, my back has been healed and I have not gone back to the doctors.

Our God is so good! Thank You, Lord Jesus, for loving me so much.

Undeserved And Unmerited Blessing In New Career

 

At the beginning of 2016, a new manager took over our department. Somehow, she didn’t like me and kept making things difficult for me.

I dreaded going to work every day and had to listen to many sermons and motivational videos at night to “recharge” so that I could have the strength to go to work the next day.

Time after time, God spoke to me through people, sermons and even promptings, to leave my job and that He had something better for me. But I just didn’t have the courage to leave because it was my first job after graduation.

It affected my health but I still held onto my job until I really couldn’t take it any longer and left in July 2016. I left the office feeling as if a 10,000-tonne weight had just lifted off my shoulders. I felt so relieved and at peace.

I started my job search. One month passed, two months passed, but still no result. I read in the news that Singapore might be entering technical recession and companies were having massive retrenchments.

Fear started to set in. “What if I remain unemployed for too long and companies become less willing to hire me? What if I would never ever going to get a job? What am I going to do with my bills?”

At that point, I finally understood what Pastor Prince meant when he said we ought to read the good news which is the Bible, rather than the bad news — the newspapers. The knowledge of a weak job market and becoming fearful as a result, did nothing to help me get a job. Instead, it was counterproductive.

Along the way, I read and heard testimonies about how other people had possessed their possessions. People who lost their job found something even better. I had faith and believed, but it did not happen to me. I wondered when I would be able to receive my restoration like the testimonies I had heard.

Friends in church began to share their testimonies on how they had found better jobs after going through something similar. But the more I heard their testimonies, the more bitter I grew towards God and at myself for quitting without a job. I felt ashamed and condemned for not being able to keep my job for a year and for a fresh graduate, this did not look good on my résumé.

Nevertheless, I kept listening to the Word and attending Sunday services. Although nothing seemed to be entering my mind, something was entering into my heart. I felt encouraged and uplifted each time I heard the Word. I stopped focusing on getting a job, but putting my trust in God for provision. Since He had provided for so many people whose testimonies I had heard, I believe He would provide for me.

Just like boiling a pot of soup, the longer you simmer it, the better the taste. Likewise, the longer I waited for my restoration, the better it seemed to get.

On 24 November 2016, I got a call from a multinational oil trading company offering me a job. I was also told that the start date would likely be in January 2017 but instead, I started work the following week — God wanted me to possess my possession in 2016!

It was really an undeserved and unmerited blessing because this role required someone who has a Master’s degree with at least two to three years of experience, whereas I am only a fresh graduate with no relevant experience.

When I was an undergraduate, I had wanted to go into oil trading, but there was no opportunity as the industry was going through a tough time. Since then, I had completely forgotten about my passion for it and did not think that I would have the chance to enter this industry.

But God remembered. He called me out of my previous job because He has prepared something even better for me!

Marriage Restored And Family Blessed

 

In 2010, my relationship with my wife turned really bad after the birth of our second child. As young parents, we were not able to cope with two young children who were a year apart. Things got worse when we became stressed at work. We quarrelled frequently and had less time with each other. Our lives seemed to revolve around the children and work. We finally separated and engaged lawyers to end the relationship. My wife and children moved to stay with my in-laws.

At this darkest point in our lives, God divinely arranged for us to attend New Creation Church without each other’s knowledge. When I found out that my wife and children were attending the same church as me, I suggested fetching them to church every week.

Though things were still gloomy, both my wife and I chose to fix our eyes on Jesus as our only way to salvation. Weeks of hearing Pastor Prince's sermons and learning about what Jesus had done for us slowly set us free from stress and anger. We began to love each other again with Jesus in our midst.

By the grace of God, my wife and I eventually reconciled, and our relationship is now better than ever before. Our third child was born in 2014, and my wife found a new job which had better work-life balance. She was also promoted within two years and in the third year, she was transferred to the department of her choice where the work was easier to manage.

We bought a new home in 2015 which was within walking distance from our children’s primary school. In 2016, we realised our dream of visiting Israel and I was sponsored for my postgraduate studies, which was a lifelong dream of mine. Indeed, with Jesus, everything is possible!
