Losing The Key - To The Glory Of God's Name (Final Update)

May everybody have a blessed Sunday today.
It took me almost two weeks to update my blog again. One "anonymous" comment advised me to upate it, and I want to apologize for not doing it right away. It is the same old reason... work... house chores... and quality time with my husband.
Well, I have a very good news here; a very good thing to blog about. Actually, I consider this a "victory". After almost three months, the key was finally retrieved. Praise God! Once again, God brought glory to His own name. Once again, God displayed His faithfulness of His word.
I feel so blessed that I trusted Him all the way; that I was not tempted to fake it just to impress my boss and to recover my neglection. I always believe that there is a reason on every single thing that happened to us; and I just realize that God may have sharpened my "Honesty" in my workplace. In the situation I am in, temptation is in my hand. I opened and closed the store all by myself. I counted my money from the drawer all by myself. But never one item that I took from the store was unpaid... down to the very cents of it.
Another thing that God sharpened in me through this incident is my faith in God. Good or bad, I trusted in Him. There are times that the situation was not favorable to me, but it never drive me negatively toward my job. I did everything to my job as if my employers were watching me all the time; (but they are not there most of the time). I love the store as if it is mine. I did everything to it, the best that I could and is growing into it. I don't know how long I will have this job, but I know that if I lost this, I can look back with integrity in me.
"Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there I am with them." (Matthew 18:20 NIV)
This verse is very "alive" in my life. I can't count anymore how many times I got a hold on this verse and really "saved" me. God's word is alive and gave us a life. The purpose of this post is to give God the glory... to Him alone, for he alone deserves it.
