That eventful week came to an end with my brains nearly fried from an aptitude test. I was tired – mentally, physically and emotionally. I needed rest but had to push on till the last hour of the day.
Taking a cue from Kings of Egypt where a man was named the god of impossibility, I cried on my WhatsApp status: “Is there a god of tiredness?”. I needed help. I needed a complete overhaul. My legs were just holding on like Hodor when the Night king attacked the home of the three eyed raven. Pheew.
I dragged my body through security and managed to make my way to my terminal. I had one agenda – SLEEP. I got to the gate with my economy class boarding pass, put a smile and greeted the steward “Good evening Ma”.
She smiled, picked up my pass and passport for verification. She returned it with a broader smile saying “we’ve changed your seat to the business class”.
I thanked her without hearing what she said, I just needed to sleep. And then it struck me – Business Class! Yipee!! My mind rose from its slumber, and moved my body to expression to thank the steward and The God who hearkened to my prayers. With a chip on my shoulder I bounced into the Boeing 747.
God has a way of answering our prayers in unique ways. All i needed was to sleep, he provided more.
And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest. – Exodus 33:14
That was how I flew business class – just like that. A good sleep, an upgraded service and a safe trip.
Isn’t He the God of the tired?
