In the morning when I was suppose to take a flight back to Ipoh, I
accidentally hurt my back. It was very painful. I dread to think that
when I reach Ipoh, I need to carry my cabin bag to walk down the
flight of iron steps from the plane!

I was contemplating whether to get a wheel chair, but when we
reached Changi Airport, it was too early. We can only checkin at
the Qiosk machine, so cannot request.

After that we sat down to have an early lunch. The pain got worse
that I could not sit down for long! So I walked towards the boarding
gate, hopping onto the travelator whenever I saw one, so it took
away much of the walking.

During boarding, "Ma'am, would you like to check in your cabin bag?"
I was shocked. "Now? Is it free?" He nodded & without hesitation, he
slipped a band through the handle of my luggage and told me to leave
the bag at the gate.

Praise God! This is our God. He cares for us. He knows what we need.
He gives without us asking for it.

Father God, I am sorry I have not passed my burden to you, worrying
unnecessarily. You have healed my back ache within 2 days by your
Healing Words, no doctor, no medication, no therapy. Teach me O God
to be more aware of your ever presence with me. In Jesus blessed name,
I pray and ask, amen.
