It was at a time during a day when I was so disappointed in my overall performance in class. I was in a primary school (grade five) trying get into grade six. I was in a foreign country and I knew for sure I wasn’t going to make it to the next level. The fact of the matter is that I didn’t know English and this school offered all the courses in this language that I didn’t understand. Also, it was over 12 different subjects (classes) that I had to pass regardless of my English ability.
Of course there was no way I was going to make it. Meanwhile, I am not a very bright person when comes to school, so I had repeated a lot in the past and it was about to happen again! I was getting way too old in comparison to my classmates. I couldn’t take it anymore.
When the time came, we did all our final tests and I realized there was no way I was going to make it. One thing I really had was faith in God. I had asked Him to let His angels answer the tests for me and God didn’t. Therefore, I was so disappointed but believed I could do more. So I decided to write a letter directly to God while nobody was around in class; I asked Him to please let me pass on to the next grade–at least on trial.
I folded a letter very well, smart and clean, and whatever I wrote was in capital letters for I believed that God was very almighty, holy and powerful. I went downstairs in a place where there was a pole, with nobody to see me but God. I closed my eyes faithfully and cried to Him to send His angel from heaven to come get the letter and take it to Him. I said the prayer of our Father the first time. As I prayed with my eyes closed, I felt a wind blow around me from nowhere so I opened my eyes after the prayer only to see the letter still in my hands. I became more intense and with even more faith I closed my eyes again and said the prayer of our Father for the second time, and the I felt the wind blow around me, this time stronger than the first time. Then, after the prayer, before I had given up I guess, I opened my eyes only to find that the letter was gone out of my hands! How amazing that was! I didn’t believe it myself. I looked around and around again and again but didn’t find anything at all. I found out that when the test results came back at the end of the semester, I had earned exactly what I had asked God in that letter to give to me. I had been allowed to go to the next grade (6) on trial.
Ever since then I have always passed one grade after the other in first class honor. My life continuously continues to surprise me every singe day.
To God be the glory.
