There is nothing is painful as losing one’s id.I know that because I have lost mine in two occasions. The last one was a final blow for me. However, with that came a series of miracles that made the experience worth it.
It was on a Monday evening, 22nd February to be precise. I was on a shopping spree with a friend from work. We were due to travel to Mombasa on the 4th of March so we had gone to buy some fancy clothes for the trip. As we were trying on some clothes, we lost sight of my handbag and in a split, it was gone! Everything gone. If you are woman, you know all the stuff that we put in there. From my house keys, phone, money, ID card, ATM card and all manner of things. The list is questionable and endless.
After several futile attempts of trying to look for it, i RESIGNED TO MY FATE.I accepted that I had lost my handbag. I thank God for His peace that flows freely. I was able to laugh it off easily, and still do. I knew deep inside me that God was in control of everything. Since was penniless, my friend gave me some money to have things sorted out. I bought a new house lock, looked for blacksmith to break my door lock and bought supper(some mangoes). Miraculous for me, not so for my neighbor though, she had also lost her house keys so when I got there she had her ‘fundi’ busy trying to break her door. When my fundi was unable to break my lock, hers graciously assisted and I was able gain access into my house in matter of minutes.P.S got God knew I would lose my keys so he prepared for me a way out in advance!
That night, i made one simple prayer: Lord, please, please, help me get my id card back. I anticipated the airport security would bring issues if I didn’t have my id and I did not want to miss my long-awaited vacation. The next day I went to apply for a new id, reported my lost ATM to my bank, renewed my sim card and later on bought a new phone. To be honest I totally needed a phone upgrade! One one of those people who hang on to stuff no matter how broken it my be.After that I went to work.
I work in customer service section and for the time that I have been employed, no client has ever given my money as a form of appreciation. However, the next two days, two clients out of the blue gave me a total of Ksh 1500.I had lost Ksh 1300 in that handbag. God had restored my loss and gave me a tip ! Happiest girl ever. Miracle galore.
So my life moved on, my prayers for my id continued steadily and hope was never lost. On the 29th, 3 days shy of the D-day, a stranger texted my friend that he has found my wallet and id somewhere and gave out his number so that I get in touch with him.Stunned, i called the number. The Good Samaritan had found my belongings somewhere in Nairobi,mind you i live in Nakuru, searched me via Facebook, messaged the friend who texted me and that’s how he found me. To add icing on the cake, the person works a stone throw away from my aunt who lives in Jericho estate. I directed him to drop them at shop where I know the vendor and minutes later my aunt picked them for him. Wallah, that’s is how I got my id back!!On my way to the airport met with my aunt and she gave me my belongings. I enjoyed my vacation like a person that knew that it’s only God who had made it possible.Have photos to prove! Don’t we serve a Mighty God? Nothing is impossible with Him. I still haven’t fully wrapped my mind on the whole ordeal and I have stopped trying, but one thing I know is that I serve an omnipotent God. Nothing is too small or too big for Him.So matter what you are trusting God for,it may be trivial or mighty in your eyes,know God hears your prayers and will answer according to His will.
