In Our Lowest Pit Of Life Comes Vindication And Hope

My husband, Dan received a call from EPIC today informing him that because of what he had suggested (and literally fought hard for it) and the feedback from many others, they have taken action to make a major change in their new policy. Initially, in their new policy, EPIC put a limitation of 5 times condition to students who are training for this major certification. If a student fails in the 5 attempts, then he/she would not be qualified to ever take that certification in EPIC again. That policy to me was rather harsh on EPIC to administer. Dan was only one paper away from being certified and one point away from passing this paper. And yet, it costed him his job when he tried to address this issue with his management in his workplace.

However, today, God vindicated on our behalf. EPIC has decided to remove the 5 times limitation in their new policy. A lady from EPIC called to inform him of the new change. We were so excited to receive this news!! It means many others do not have to go through what Dan did. It means Dan can finally pursue to complete this certification if he chooses to do so. It means hope..

I personally believe that prayers from many in our Fresno City Blessing Church had made a difference in our case. For them, I would like to say “Thank you!” Your prayers matter!! In my personal prayers, many times, I asked God to vindicate and bring justice and to me it’s important because in this case, only God can act and when He does, no one can come in between it. If God is for you, no one can come against you unless God allows it for His specific reasons. The call Dan received today was an answered prayer! Thank You Father God.

Where Is This Leading Us?

Where is this leading us, I’ve yet to know. Management can reinstate Dan’s job if it chooses to do what is right. If this was the sole reason for firing him, it would not stand right any more. In fact, I believe today that what management of CMC could not do in support of their staffs, Dan did it. It’s a fact. Personally, I have nothing against the management. It was just a decision that I believe they should have investigated further before they decided to fire Dan.

On the other hand, God may have a bigger plan in store for us that we may not imagine possible. One thing I do know.. God has His hands on this. We really have to be still and believe and trust in His bigger picture.

The Bible says in Isaiah 55:9

“As the heavens are higher than the earth,  so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

One thing that taught me through this is to believe and live by your conviction. When you believe what you’re doing is right and truly right, you need to make a stand if even it costs you profound pain, do it. God will be your vindication and He will bring forth new hope and greater provision. Please continue to pray for us that through God’s wisdom, we will know His Will and plan.

Blessings from ours to yours,

A New Chapter

In the beginning of 2015, circumstance had forced me to resume my writing again. Not that it’s bad to write again, I was too busy being a new  mom and was loving it. Dan and I welcomed our only son David Joshua Jun Jie Dick on the 29th August 2012. Of course before David arrived, we were busy taking care his big sister, Michelle Inez Dick.//

2014 was a difficult year for Dan and I especially Dan. His mom passed away on May 15. The love of a mother is dearly missed when she passed on. She is one awesome example of a mom who loves without any conditions. It was hard for me to let her go in her final moment as well. But, the desire to want to see her free from all pain and discomfort, gave me the peace in the end. Losing someone we dearly loved was never an easy experience. Dan thought he would never recover from the loss of his beloved mom, by God grace he tried. Yet, right before the year ended, he was dismissed from his work. For a reason I never thought it was justified because he did try really hard to hold it in, but wasn’t good enough. Employees in a workplace should be given room to express their emotions without the fear that they could be fired. Our expressions even frustration is a natural part of us as long as it is expressed without causing harm to any one. His suggestions were never taken seriously into consideration. Once you break the rule, you break the rule! Man make that rule. Man will break that rule! Has any one ever heard of that expression? From this post, you’ve probably think I’m a rule breaker, right?

Within last year, Dan had to face 2 huge losses, his mom and his work. Can any one truly identify and understand what that feels like? Can this circumstance in life break even the toughest? Is it reasonable to expect that? The first week of 2015 has been hard on us all. We have to find within what’s left to keep ourselves going. There’s not much emotionally left to take on, is there? But, like he said: ” I’m hanging in there.” Sometimes when life is tough, the tough stands out. The test will bring out the best in those who are tough and have a reason to hold on even when it seems there is none.  I would like to encourage those who are going through a tough year ahead with this:

Even when it seems like you’ve reached your lowest point, as long as you still have support and love, recovery is around the corner. The God of Hope is our anchor!  — Eileen Dick

I have to admit that being a new mom is not an easy journey as well but I would not exchange this experience for anything else. Tough year or not, God will see us through it all. As I resume my writing again this year, I hope they will bring blessings to you and your loved ones.

Truly from our family to yours,
