another first time...

it's been 4 days since my semester break started.. and d last 2 days - friday and saturday were the super happening ones.. cf, bulk purchase of fruits, bbq, night bible study, open day..and to top it all, i got myself into an accident.. yup, it was me who got myself into it.. a terribly stupid, careless and reckless mistake.. not gonna post much details here.. a car knocked into mine but it was my fault.. i was in a hurry, rushing for time that i made the wrong judgement... wrong estimation..

thank God i wasn't injured..nobody was.. and the impact that i felt wasn't too strong.. my friend who was nearby came to help.. it's my first time after driving for more than 2 years.. in my first year of driving, i've only knocked into the gate, pole, roof tiles, never a car.. i obviously wish it didn't happen but i believe God wants to give me this solid tangible lesson to lower my boosting confidence level in driving.. when accidents happen, a lot of what ifs usually pop up in people's minds and fingers will be pointed everywhere.. i hate "what ifs" because it wouldn't change a thing..

i believe, even if it didn't happen today at that very spot, it may still happen some other time, somewhere else, probably worse.. i thank God that the driver who knocked into my car wasn't fierce though he wasn't pleasant looking (yeah, probably cause he's not the one paying) but i'm really grateful for that..i know how scary and fierce most drivers are on the road.. yeah, deep down, i know what God is trying to teach me.. and i thank Him that it only cost my bank account.. and my dad's which i'm guilty of.. my mum and sis definitely know how poor i am even before this happened so they generously contributed to the cost of it.. thank God for family! and not forgetting, friends..

it really could have been worse.. thank God for the super valuable solid tangible lesson..

therefore, no more expensive outings for me.. don't tempt me if you're planning to have one.. have it in discrete.. with exceptions though.. that's all for now..till then !

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
