Yesterday I helped my roommate to pack up her things. She moved out for a happiness. Tomorrow will be her wedding day! I had been excited until she left. I looked around my room and felt loss. For the second time in my life, on the same date, April 28, I have to let someone go.
On April 28, three years ago, I lost my dad but life must go on. I missed him and I miss him. But what could I do?
On July 2013, I moved to Palembang and started to have a new roommate. We were not close at the beginning, but as the days went by, we got closer and became best friend. I was blessed to have her by my side. However, I could not have her as my roommate for forever, right? Now she is tying the knot.
Time flies really fast. People walk in and out in our lives. I wonder when will I lose someone again. Soon or later, no one will stay forever by my side. But The Lord was, is, and will always be with me. When I moved out from my house to go to college, He was with me. When I went to other cities, He was with me. When my dad passed away, He was with me. When I got new roommate, He was with me. And now as my roommate found another roommate for a lifetime, The Lord is still with me. Later if I left this city and even get married, He will be with me.
So, why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God. (Psalm 42:5)
