I’m working for an IT company in Chennai. September 2006, and the project I had been working in for a year, had come to an end. I had been working from our office (near Thoraipakkam), for the past two years.
All my team members were getting released to different projects of our office, near Navalur. I was also expecting to be released to that same branch, but God had a different plan. I was released to a five member Team – to an office near Tidel Park. My previous team mates suggested that I ask for a release to some other project, in an around Navalur. However, I did not heed to their suggestion, because deep down I knew that God had a purpose for placing me in this new location, near Tidel Park.
It was also difficult to adjust in the new office environment; after having been at the cozy office environment, near Thoraipakkam, for nearly 2 years. A month passed by and I realized that I had adapted to the new environment. I felt God was shifting me here and there so that I could easily adapt to different environments – since I take a lot of time to adapt to changes. He is still working on me!
Now, I was using the office bus facility for everyday transportation. Towards the end of October, I received an e-mail from the Transport department stating that my bus would no longer ply by the Tidel/Elnet facilities. It would be rerouted via Velachery. I was worried on how I would come to office everyday…but God was in control!
I also came to know that there were discussions going on – for the past six months – to shift our project to the office, near Navalur. My team members said, “Each time the topic of shifting would crop up, nothing would come out of it, as they were never serious about it!” So I thought; ‘If we really do shift this time, it is just the Lord Jesus Christ who is behind it’.
Guess what? The week after the buses were rerouted, our five member team shifted from Tidel to the office, near Thoraipakkam (there were 5 vacant seats in this office)! The rest of the Team members got shifted to the office near Navalur!! Now, I am not facing any transport problem!!!
All Glory be to God who makes all things beautiful in His time! It is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes!!!!
Are not two small birds sold for a very small piece of money? And yet not one of the birds falls to the earth without your Father knowing it. God knows how many hairs you have on your head.
So do not be afraid. You are more important than many small birds.
