Those who read my blog regularly might remember me being really upset with the fact that I was re-assigned to do another job at the 4th of July Picnic. And I mean, I was REALLY upset about it – almost to be point of breaking down and crying a couple of times.
Here’s what I wrote in the blog entry that day:
The point of the post is to record the feelings right now so that maybe in the future when I will come back to this post, I will grin and think about how God managed to turn the situation around…
That, and I need your prayers because frankly… this entire situation is stressing me out.
Well… guess what?
I GOT KIDS’ ZONE!!!
I was thinking hard for a few days trying to come up with the plan (and just simply bailing out of the other project wasn’t an option) and praying about it (yeah, one of those times when I talked God’s ears off), and finally one day I was riding home in a taxi from work in a really foul mood because once again someone mentioned Kids’ Zone… It was raining outside and my head was about to explode from all the thinking and also the air pressure changes due to the weather when I got my BINGO moment.
I texted my admin manager, “Can I be responsible for the main admin part of the Kids’ Zone and then I’ll have Nastya [my assistant] take care of it while I’ll be in the CU tent talking about how cool and innovative it is? PLEASE?”
I think I stopped breathing for those couple of minutes as I was waiting for Nadya to reply. Finally I heard House’s voice [that’s my sound for a message]. I looked at the phone.
The foul mood was gone right then. POOF! Like it hasn’t been there.
So I guess in this situation, God just wanted me to be patient and creative. After all, I ended up with both projects and that’s good. I still don’t really like the other project because, frankly speaking, I don’t believe in it, but with the prospect of at least administrating the Kids’ Zone will help me feel more useful rather than just sitting in a tent for the entire day.
However… the praise would be God’s whether I would’ve gotten Kids’ Zone or not… because thankfully my faith in Him doesn’t depend on the stuff that happens. I might get mad at Him, but usually I cool off quickly when I think how much He has provided for me and all His mercy and love and care…
That said… PRAISE GOD!! I GOT KIDS’ ZONE!!! 😀 (Can you tell I’m excited?)
And thanks to y’all who prayed. Seriously, it helped.
