Pleasure in His presence - A memorable weekend

The joy of being a Christian is indescribable. It is better experienced than told. I was almost getting upset because I had to stay back in the office for extra hours on Saturday. However, I thank God that His grace prevented me from falling into the trap of murmuring and complaining.

When I eventually closed from the office, I was glad that I had endured the extra hours and fulfill my obligation as a true child of God. I got to church late and the brethren have already started the meeting we have that evening. However, I didn't miss much and I was delighted to be part of the meeting.

Immediately after the meeting, I receive news that my company has just won a job we quoted for. Out of the five companies that quoted, we were singled out despite the fact that our competitors were older in the business and better equipped. When I got the SMS message, I screamed and jumped like a child. I was too excited to note that I was outside in the open and passer-by may wonder what the matter is with me.

I couldn't contain the joy. I had to share with someone, so I called my boss and congratulated him. When I got home, I was so happy to share the good news with my wife.

Sunday service was a time to remember. From the workers prayer meeting till we shared the grace, it was bliss in the presence of the Ancient of Days. So that was how the weekend I thought was going to be a wreak turned out to be a memorable one.

Oh taste and see that the Lord is Good!!!

@ Bola
Thanks. We are really grateful to God for helping us out.

@Solomonsydelle
I will love to participate. But I cannot make a definite promise because I am working for an organisation. Right now, I am having a very tight schedule and I am finding it difficult to write or post .
