I would like to testify one of the marvelous things that our great LORD has done for me.
First of all; me joining an IT Company is a great miracle! I would like to start off with that. My childhood dream was to become a pilot in the Indian Air Force (IAF). Everyday I dreamt about it and was at the same time praying to the Lord Jesus Christ about it too. December 19th 7:00 a.m., I was supposed to report at Mysore Railway Station, to go to the IAF Academy. So I left the previous day to Mysore, to stay at my aunt’s place. She being a powerful lady for the Lord; prayed over me and finally gave this verse, “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:14”. All the more encouraged, I left for the IAF Academy on 19th morning to take up a test called ‘ Pilot Aptitude and Battery Test’ (PABT), the first test to qualify – for becoming a pilot.
At 11:30 a.m. the results were out. My heart stopped for a moment, when they finished reading out the names of those who were selected; as they did not call out my name. Since it is a ‘once in a life time test’ – I can never attempt it again in my life! My heart broke to pieces as though I had lost my life! My dreams were shattered! Being so childish; I fought with my dear Father Lord who was so patient ‘n knew, that it was not the place where I should be. Knowing very well that we shouldn’t ask the question “WHY” to our Lord, still I continued. Not stopping with that I fought with Him asking why he took me there because I had packed a huge ‘n heavy luggage for 5 days – spending lot of money – on all the things that the IAF academy has asked me to bring. However, if I fail the 1st day test, I have to get back home the very same day.
There a Wing Commander saw my eyes filled with tears, called me ‘n asked what my qualification was. Then he asked me whether I am prepared to take up a test to join as a Technical Officer. I said ‘yes’ and I wrote the test for 3 full hours. The officers asked us to stay in the Academy there and kept the suspense of the results till next day morning. That night I prayed, asking God for forgiveness and requesting Him do according to His Will.
The next day, morning at 7 the results were out! They selected only 2 girls out of 10 and I was one among them!! I jumped with joy and so I stayed there for 5 days. Out of 250 girls who came on the first day, only 12 girls remained till the 5th day and I was the only girl from South India. Our Gracious Father in Heaven was so faithful to me even when I was so unfaithful and ungrateful to Him. At the end of the 5th day, they interviewed us and they selected only pilots; but I was rejected. I didn’t bother much! I was very happy that the Lord took me that far, by His grace. Actually, I wanted to become a fighter pilot to fly planes during wars and fight for the nation; but later on I realized that there is no greater honor than to be at Our Lord’s feet!
December 24th 8:00 a.m., I returned to Chennai and was narrating the whole incident to my family. Impulsively, I went out to check my email at 1:00 p.m. and found an email from an IT Company – calling me for a written test on December 24th(the very same day), at 2:00 p.m. I immediately rushed to Adyar; with a small word of prayer. God lead me from there on to get placed into that same IT Company where I am able to proclaim His glorious and His marvelous works!
The following is yet another wonder that the LORD did in my life. I was transferred to the vicinity of Navalur last month from in ‘n around Thoraipakkam. As Navalur is very far from my place, I was really very upset about this transfer. I wanted to get back to being at least near ‘n around Thoraipakkam. Moreover, I also did not want to leave the weekly prayer fellowship taking place near Thoraipakkam. I shared this prayer point with one of the members of our prayer fellowship, who encouraged me by saying that there is a prayer fellowship near Navalur also. After a week or so my Project Leader (PL) told me that the entire project was getting shifted near to Thoraipakkam and that I will have to report for work there, from September 2006. Praise be to God Almighty and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ for His awesome and marvelous works!Even though we are at times so very unfaithful and caught up with our desires, He remains faithful to us. He always loves us with His same never changing love. Probably, if I had been in IAF, I may not have been able to testify about the great things that He has now done in my life.
Glory to God in the Highest!
