A passionate friend here on dA by the name of had gifted me with this amazing piece:
Needless to say, I was overwhelmed. The reason I'm writing this journal however, concerns a question she recently asked me: "what has God done for you in your life? After coming up with my answer, I decided that it would be a good idea to share my response as a journal. So here it is:
"I suppose I could name some moments of 'fortune' that I'm grateful to God for. As a child, I once climbed high up on my tree and fell down onto a shed. Though I lost consciousness and woke up in a hospital that evening, I don't recall having any injuries at all. In contrast, years later I was laying on a weak table when it broke, causing me to fall through it and sprain my arm despite not falling far down like the previous case.
More recently however, is the category of moments where the timing seems to be too perfect. First it was waking up early on days when I knew I had to finish an assignment, though I simply accepted it as a phenomenon. More convincing however, was when I was thinking "I wonder when it's time to sign up for graduation at my university", before finding out that the deadline had been extended to TODAY and me being just in time. Sometimes I'll be thinking something and then hear someone talking about the very same thing. At first I thought of them as mere coincidences, but after that graduation thing, and after it seemed to happen on a weekly basis, it seemed like something more. I haven't gotten the holy spirit to speak in tongues through me, but I like to think that these moments are God's way of saying hi, so I'll whisper "Thank You Lord" when it happens. After moments like these and occasionally focusing on God's word, I've come to be grateful to God for giving us good principles to live by. I've even thanked him for making it possible to enjoy so many forms of entertainment, from shows and songs to some of the art on this website."
