I went to McDonald's earlier to have my 2nd breakfast (don't judge me!) in order to satisfy my craving for their Sausage McMuffin. Their new offering of Cheesy Eggdesal with Sausage (photo attached) caught my eye (and my tastebuds) so I decided to order one, only to find out that after 10 minutes of sitting, the lady in the counter punched and gave me a Cheesy Eggdesal with Tomato and Onion instead. I wanted to complain for the WRONG sandwich given to me but since I don't want to waste more time, I decided to line up again and ordered another Cheesy Eggdesal with Sausage and thought of giving the other sandwich to the first beggar I'll encounter on my way home.
I came along a first beggar, a man in his 60s or 70s asking for money so I handed him the "wrong" sandwich. The first words I heard from him caught me off guard:
"THANK YOU, LORD!"
It wasn't me he saw, it was God!
Because it wasn't actually me who did it, it was God!
I came to realize that God actually had it planned for me to have a wrong sandwich so I can provide for others, in such a way that God also allows for wrong things to happen in our lives so that we can be a blessing to others. And oftentimes, the situations we perceive as wrong were actually His interventions in order to use us for His greater glory.
In "wrong" situations wherein the Lord can use me as a blessing to others, who am I to complain?
Here I am, Lord, use me and my circumstances as Your instrument in this world. To God be always the glory!
PS: This Cheesy Eggdesal with Sausage is soooooo good I'm hoping McDonald's PH will offer all-day breakfast soon.
