We are back in Dubai after a very refreshing Trip to Europe to celebrate my birthday and sort of alone time for Peter & I.
As most of you know by now, GOD has yet again surprised us with something that we’ve never really thought would happen just before our trip ended.
Before I unveil the surprise, I don’t think you guys know that half of our expenses were paid using the Emirates voucher we received from our AED 25,000 Nido winnings, if you’re new in this journal, read the story here. Some of the fund were used to pay our travel package to India with the whole family including Peter’s Parents in July last year, when we visited 5 cities in India, read about our #apinaytouring6indianstoseethetaj adventures here. We had about AED 7,000 left from the voucher which was used towards our Euro trip package. The thing is we had the choice to use the voucher to go to Paris with our family of 5, for 4 days but without Peter’s Parents, but we’ve chosen to share the blessing with them and took them with us to see the Taj Mahal and other cities that they haven’t visited before, we toured around for 12 days.
So going back to the surprise from GOD. In the morning while Peter and I were praying I told him, he should ask GOD (on my behalf) for a business class upgrade in our flight back to Dubai. So he did, in fact these were his very words “LORD, you know that Candice deserve this business class upgrade, even if there’s only 1 seat available please can you give it to her, I’m ok staying in the economy”. Very casual, friendly prayer, just the way they chat.
Then off we go to the airport, while chatting with the Emirates check in staff (Peter used his charm), queried about the flight etc. And the staff just blurted out that the fight is fully booked and if we’re willing to give up our seats. As a compensation we will be given a return ticket each to Prague. We were asked to wait until all passengers have checked in to make sure that they really require our seats.
Long story short after an hour of waiting and praying we were called by the staff and were given another voucher for a 2 way ticket to Prague/Dubai that is valid for a year :-). Yehey!!! I wanted to do my victory dance but I controlled myself hahahahha
During the flight back to Dubai it dawned on me, Peter and I just prayed for a business class upgrade and we were given another Trip to plan for Europe. It’s as if GOD is saying “Is that all you want? You know I can give you more!”, He can and He did.
Just when I thought he’s already blessed us so much with our Europe trip and the previous family trip in India, He threw yet another blessing on our way.
Our Heavenly Father is indeed a GOD of many surprises, He’s way generous and loving than our minds can comprehend. So don’t ever limit Him when you ask. Ask with a childlike faith know that your Heavenly Daddy will provide.
I hope you guys were blessed with this post, if you are, please do share this around. You’ll never know someone else needs to hear this testimony of GOD’s goodness.
