Early last year, I decided to leave my comfortable life in Australia to go on an exchange program in the United Kingdom. Never would I have thought that God had planned everything out so perfectly. The experience was a time that had me deepening my convictions in God again.

Prior to deciding whether to go or not, I sought God earnestly and secretly hoped that God would actually say no. Unsurprisingly, God did not speak to me at all. Instead I was challenged by different ones; if I had faith to go, then I should just go. To be honest, I was quite worried as I had always found it challenging to leave my comfort zones and remain faithful in all circumstances. After much battling, I decided to go all out and let God take control.

During the exchange, I had to take up all of the compulsory courses, or my graduation would have been delayed. Before departure, there was still one core course that I could not enrol into as the class was full. I got so worried that I told my parents that I might pull out in the last second as I did not want to delay my graduation. However I was once again reminded about remaining faithful in God. Indeed God never disappoints us; I managed to enrol in the class one day before the university semester started.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by the typical UK weather and a not so clean house. I was disconnected from everyone because I did not have internet then, and I started questioning my decision of coming. I started crying out to God and doubting whether it was a good idea to come so “faithfully”. Nevertheless it was during those six months that I truly experienced God’s love once again. I also began to understand the Father’s heart, which is that He wants to see me grow and become a better person. I learnt that He never forsakes us and He is always by our side, 24/7. I can always cry out to God whenever and wherever I am. Truly I am so blessed to have this Heavenly Father!
