It's pretty damn common to us to experience odd times and it really makes us so desperate. Yeah, I've been into really a bad one but im gonna say that im still thankful for because of it, i found a smooth road of life. A father of two, i've been working hard for my family. I assumed to spend my lifetime to my employer as i like the job. But one department head knows that I know his bad doings. He's making fraud and he's spending the money of the company. He's a corrupt manager i ever known. But when I was questioned about audit, i was prompted to confront him. And there I go, i was accused of fraud, scam... for allegedly spending money of the company. Oh my God! That was so painful. I was so weak and i wasn't just able to defend myself he (and his cronies) threatened my life and of my family's. They take away my properties to pay for the alleged gap. I know he's been crazy laughing for I saved him of his judgment. I lost all that i had and I was so depressed seeing my kids, my family. We don't have anything left. But out of the blue, I moved on and i found a new good job, my dream job. And it's on a leading company here in my country and I think i am now saved. Now, it came to my mind to still be thankful to the bad things happened in my life coz because of it, i was able to learn and found my dream job. How about you guys? Have you been into this kind of experience? do you still mean to give thank for it?

Yeah, as a matter of friendly advise, whenever you'll gonna be into jobs someday, though we all know that Judas has been cursed for this, and he lives forever in us, beware of him. He will always betray you by all means.

My friends, I have to admit this. Even when I have the highest faith in our Almighty, I still went to this very desperate situation in my life. Its not about the faud or money matters. Its about my health. Yet it is still unresolved upto this time. We had our annual physical exam last year. All my tests were ok, so I thought not to have an appointment with our doctor which I normally do for the past 5 years. Later on that day, I decided to have an appointment with our doctor. I know and confident that I am among the healthiest employee in our company as illustrated with my normal test results. The doctor found a mass in my upper abdomin. She gave my the hint to have an ultra-sound. I asked why? She said " This has something to do with a mass, it might be an enlarged spleen. We need to know where that mass exactly is" I went to have an ultrasound. After the ulra-sound, the doctor attending asked me to have it ct scanned. It made me so depressed, knowing that the mass is an enlarged spleen with multiple cysts in it. I went to a hematologist, to have my bone marrow biopsy. I wanted to know if the cancer cells dominated my body. She said my tests were ok, but the "allergic factor something(don't know the medical term for it)" is high. She referred me to an oncologist, then the oncologist referred me back to my surgeon to have the cysts biospy. I was desperate: 1. My splenomegaly and the multiple cysts in it. 2. My financial stability can hardly support my medication. 3. The doctors and laboratory facilities are not all available locally in our country. 4. My mind keep asking "God, Why"? By June, I wanted to focus on the things that can't keep me away from having a healthy faith in God and healthy unworried mind. I went to school and enrol myself to a masteral course. I'll finish it this school year in GOd's time. I am thankful: 1. For God gave me the knowledge and assurance that no matter what others think or say regarding my health, I know He made me healthy and protected always. 2. That even if cysts are present in one's body, we can still be as healthy as we can and live a fruitful longer life. 3. A masteral diploma will be received in no time, with all my effort together with faith also. 4. Emotional stress and other worries were surpassed and made me a better person.

It is in our faith that we strengthen ourselves from every fights we encounter. Well, it is more likely to know that God has been with us for so long and he won't forsake us. Thanking him in the way he wanted what it is for us is seems relevant. I thank you so muc for sharing your nice pick and hope this one could inspire other people.

It's a matter of a priceless thing perhaps. Because we're not here for ourselves alone.. we're here for others like us. Coz we are passionate to giving rather than receiving a kind. Thanks a lot.
