As I was sitting at home waiting for the cable company to install my television (I had just moved into our new house), my cellphone rang all of a sudden. I saw it was my daughter calling, so I picked up the phone, and I could hear her crying. She said, “Mom, someone attacked me.” I replied, “What? Attacked?” I understood what she meant, but I didn’t know why she was attacked. I asked her, “Wait, weren’t you at the open house?” She was a realtor, so she had been working at an open house for her listing. She tried to explain to me that one of the visitors wanted to attack her. I was shocked. I rushed over as soon as I hung up the phone.

When I went in, I saw that her clothing was still intact, so I was a little more at ease. But I could see a small cut on her face, and she was shivering. I tried to hold her as she was crying. I let her calm down, and she started to tell me the whole incident. There was this middle-aged man, well dressed, who came in and signed his name on the visitor’s list. She told him he could look around. After he explored the downstairs, he went upstairs and told her he had some questions to ask her. Usually, my daughter would have a Taser, but she left it in the car that day.

Without a second thought, she went upstairs. Once she went there, the man held her in a chokehold. She was trying to pull his hand away, but her long fingernails also scratched her face, explaining the cut. My daughter told me that she knew if she did not fight, she was going to lose her life. That man was much taller and much stronger, and she was just a little girl. But she had a spark in her; a will to live helped her fight him off. The man didn’t expect such power from such a small girl. Not only the man realized that he could not overpower her, but he also knew the visitors still were coming in and out of the open house, so he threw her to the ground and ran out. My daughter passed out. After a few minutes, my daughter came to. She didn’t remember what had happened, but she felt her face was wet. She went to the restroom to check and saw that her face was full of blood. That’s when she knew she was attacked and called me.

When I went over, she brought me upstairs. She told me in detail where it happened and what had happened. When I looked where she was thrown on the ground, it was the only room that had a carpet. I was thankful that it had been that room; had it been any other room, there would have been nothing to cushion her fall. When I looked further, I was surprised to see that, while the house had been unfurnished, the room had a picture of Jesus Christ on the wall. When I saw the picture, I couldn’t help but cry out loud, it was God who saved her. After her husband arrived, we rushed her to the hospital for a check-up. After a thorough check-up, the doctor informed us that she was okay.

Often, we fall into danger, or we face a terrible situation. We may not always have time to pray or connect with a higher power, but the divinity is always there to protect us. Somehow, it comes to our aid in the most critical moments before we even have a chance to open our mouth to ask for help. I shed tears of gratitude that even though we were just minute human beings, we were protected in some way. The divinity is still connected to us, and any time we are in an urgent situation, they will know it too. Even sometimes, when we make poor choices or meet the wrong people, the divinity is still with us.

God’s perfection is omnipresent, and we will inevitably encounter many unpleasant things, and even endanger one’s own life. Many times, a big disaster becomes small or disappears unexpectedly. Sometimes, He also gives us some warnings before things happen.

I remembered many years ago, I met a new friend Karen in my dance class, and we had a great talk. She invited me to her home the next day to chat, because she had a friend who visited her from Canada, and she wanted to introduce her to me. I accept her invitation. Her friends are the same as her, a very cheerful, very sunny girl. While we were chatting, Karen suddenly asked us (her friend, her husband, and I) to be quiet, and she had something to tell us. She looked quite serious. We immediately stopped talking and waited for her announcement. She said to tell Alice who is in our dance class that her daughter’s in danger and we should let her know. I couldn’t think of anyone else named Alice in our class, so I told Karen that I couldn’t find this person. Of course, she mentioned other things, but this incident was so weird and I didn’t think I could ever forget it.

Because Karen said something strange, her husband (Jason) took her to the hospital for a brain exam, which turned out to be normal. Soon after, they transferred to Germany, they sold their house and moved out of Los Angeles, and we lost contact. This incident stayed in my mind. Two or three years after my daughter’s accident, I suddenly thought about Karen’s words, only to find that “Alice” she was talking about was me. It never crossed my mind that the person Karen referred was me at that time. My English name is Alice. Although I didn’t understand the warning, He still shows His perfection. You see, He let it happen in the safest place of the house (only carpeted room in the whole house), and where He was (the picture of Him hanging on the cross on the wall). The owner of the house had already moved out and left the house empty and unfurnished. Why would the owner leave an area carpet in that room and the picture behind?

Is it a coincidence? I believe it is the perfection of the omnipresent God!

神的完美在哪裡?(3)

我坐在家裡等有線電視公司給我安裝電視(我剛搬進新房子)時,手機突然響了起來。我看到是我女兒打來的,我一拿起電話,就听到她的哭她說:“什麼,被攻擊?”我明白她的意思,但我不知道她為什麼遭到攻擊。我問她,“等等,你不是她是一名房地產經紀人,最近剛拿到一位客人給她上市的房子,所以她在開放房子給人參觀。她試圖向我解釋,一位客人攻擊了她。我嚇壞了,匆匆忙忙掛斷電話,衝了過去。

當我進去的時候,我看到她的衣服還完好無損,所以我稍微放鬆了一點。但我看到她身上有一個小的傷口,她在發抖。她在哭泣,意識到她。我讓她冷靜下來,她開始告訴我整個事情的經過。有個衣著講究的西班牙裔美國人走了進來,在來訪者名單上簽了名。她告訴他可以四處看看。他看了樓下,然後上樓,,不久他在樓上叫著,他有幾個問題要問她。通常,我女兒有Taser(泰瑟槍)是一種與電擊棒完全不同的武器,雖然同樣也是利用電流作為攻擊動能,但泰瑟槍在發射後會有兩支針頭連成直接擊穿對方體內,繼而利用電流擊倒對方。),但她那天沒拿出來把它留在車裡了。

她一也樓,那人就掐住她的脖子。她試圖把他的手拉開,但她的長指甲往下拉時,刮傷了自己的臉,這說明了她有傷口的原因。她告訴我,她知道如果她不反抗;她可能會失去她的生命。那個男人比她高,又比她壯,而她只是個小女孩。但是她身上有一種這個男人沒有料到從這麼小的一個女孩身上會有這麼大的力量,他沒法統一他。他同時擔心陸陸續續還有人會進來看房子,我女兒又不停的掙扎著打回去,最後他把她摔倒在地上,然後趕緊逃走。被他一摔,女兒昏了過去,幾分鐘後,她才醒過來。她不記得發生的事,只覺得貝殼黏黏的,她去了洗手間查看,看到自己的臉上全是血。那時她才記起自己被襲擊了。

我過去時,她把我帶上樓。她詳細地把事情發生的地點和經歷告訴了我。當我看到她被扔在地上的地方時,它竟然是這房子唯一有地毯的房間。很慶幸她被摔在那間房間;如果是別的房間,就沒有什麼東西可以緩沖她的摔倒了。當我環顧房間時,我可以地發現,雖然沒有家具,卻卻掛著耶穌基督被釘十字架的畫像。當我看到它的時候,我忍不住大喊,是神救了她!。她丈夫到達後,我們趕緊把她放在醫院檢查。經過徹底的檢查,醫生告訴我們她沒事。

通常,我們在包圍危險之中,或者面臨可怕的環境。我們不知道,甚至我們並不總是有時間祈禱或與更高的力量聯接,但它在那裡保護了我們。有時,在最關鍵的時刻,甚至在我們有機會張開嘴尋求幫助之前,他已在那裡給我們幫助。我不由自己流下了感激的眼淚,甚至我們只是卑微的人,我們還是在某種程度上受到了保護。神性仍然與我們息息相聯,只要我們在緊急情況下,他們也會知道。甚至有時,當我們造成錯誤的選擇或碰到壞人時,神性仍然存在。

神的完美無所不在,人生難免會遇到許多不順心的事,甚至危及自己生命的事,很多時候沒耒由的一些大事化小甚至沒事。甚至於在事情發生前,他會給我們一些警訓。

記得很多年前,我上跳舞課時新認識一位朋友凱倫,我們相談甚歡,她邀請我隔天去她家聊天,因為她有朋友從加拿大來,她要介紹她給我認識。我滿口答應,㐧二天準時赴約。她的朋友與她一樣,非常開朗,非常陽光的女孩。正當我們東南西北的閒聊時,忽然凱倫要求我們(她的朋友,她先生和我)安靜下來她有事要告訴我們。她說去找愛麗斯,就是一起上跳舞課的,她的女兒有危險!趕快通知她。我一直想不出在上課還有誰叫愛麗斯,因此告訴凱倫沒辦法辦到。當然她也提到別的事情,但是這件事最深刻。

由於凱倫說的話很怪異,她先生(Jason)把她帶去醫院作腦部檢查,結果一切正常。不久之後,Jason因工作轉向德國,他們也就賣了房子,搬離了洛杉磯,我們也失去連絡。這件事一直留在我腦中,在女兒發生事情后的二年後,我忽然又想到凱倫的話,才發現她講的愛麗斯是我,當時我一直認為是其他叫愛我的人,只是沒想到指的是我,因為我的英文名正是愛麗斯。雖然我沒聽懂警訓但是神還是表現出他的完美,他讓危險發生在最安全的地方(有地毯的房間)以及有他在的場所(裡面掛著他上十字架的照片),尤其是在應該全部是沒有家具完全空洞的房子,房主居然留下地毯及照片。

是偶然是巧合?我認為是無所不在的神的完美!
