I went to Singapore last month. Daddy and Mummy brought me to Toys”R”Us to try out the scooter. They were planning to get a scooter for my birthday. I was really excited when I went into the shop. I was browsing through and trying every single toy that was within my reach and at that moment, I wished I could own this “heavenly” place.

As you may know, I always carry my favourite toy, “Bear Bear”, everywhere I go. Without exception, I carried this into the toy shop. I was so engrossed with the scooters and the drones that I did not realise I had let go of my bear somewhere. I only realised that the bear was missing when we were about to leave the shopping mall.

We panicked. The one and only thing I held dear to my heart for my entire life was now lost. My grandparents and parents went back to the shop to search for it. It was like looking for a needle in a haystack. Almost on the verge of giving up, my grandma prayed. God led her to exactly where the bear was sitting – on top of a shelf, camouflaged among the other toys. Someone had picked it up from the floor and placed it on top of a shelf.

I was ecstatic! I was happy that I had found what is important to me. I was even happier that God answered our prayers.

I might not understand why Daddy and Mummy decided to dedicate me to Jesus during one of the Sunday services. But through this incident, I was taught that what is lost can be found. I need to trust that He has a perfect plan for me. Jesus died for me, and lives again, in order to find me.

God bless you and Happy Easter!
