A glimpse into GoRendang's journey and testimony...
I wanted to stay in my comfort zone, retire at 65 with a big pension but He said No,
The entire 2016, no news from recruitment, all doors were closed.
I toggled the idea of food business which first came up 10 years ago,
It was all so uncertain and it was one of those times I ever felt so low.
Mid-year I stumbled across a Social Enterprise,
An organization which supports business setup of any size.
I signed up for fun and pretty much clueless,
But He constantly said to me in 2 Corinthians 12:9 ,
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness".
Few months later, I was offered the business course for free,
The focus was on food industry, ironically.
To accept the offer, I needed 5 days leave,
Checked the leave portal and number 5 was flashing at me!
Spooky 5? No less, no more?
Coincidence? I don't think so,
I completed the course, delivered a business plan all ready to go.
Though 2017 wasn't a great start,
Nevertheless I took a leap of faith which had filled my heart.
For the first 6 months, I doubted all the time,
But at Westpoint August 2017, He reassured me the first time,
Awards night May 2018, I silently prayed and He reassured me with a prize.
2019 oh what a year! And Gold of Syria,
Seeing lives transformed, doubts no longer,
No way I was to give up at that juncture,
Remembering Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to give you hope and a future".
This pursuit gives me the work life balance I could never imagined,
Besides the opportunity to serve the community of Woking.
I can see my little girl dance and prance everyday,
I can be there for my tween battling into teen without missing a day.
We could have meals together as a family for most of the days,
Thank you Lord, I hope all these are part of your will and your ways.
This is not the end,
because it was never about prosperity at 65,
For I long to walk further,
On the path you have laid, Success or failure by human definition, not that bothered, Galatians, the nine fruits of the spirit, that's what matter.
