This was what I wrote on my Facebook status before I went to bed on the night of the 8th of October 2010, 2 days before the 10/10/10;
we always search for His ‘soft touch’ to change our lives, when it is His ‘hard touch’ that brings breakthrough for us. but however soft, or hard He teaches us, His love remains the same. (the story of Jacob, and Joseph)
It convicted me even more that He has prepared everything, even in things that we might see as trivial, to work together for good. I found this message when I incidentally flipped open my first journal which have been sitting on my bedside table for the past 2 years. He used it to remind me that His hard touches have never meant to bring harm to me, and that’s what I love about Him. You are amazing, Father.
