All of us might hear the phrase, ‘Blessing in disguise’. Blessing in disguise means we received an unexpected blessing in an unexpected way or an unexpected person. This phrase is likely associated with the word miracle because situations or persons we least expect would be a pass for the blessing to come through.
While others were still waiting for their turn to receive a blessing, an elderly fisherman catches oysters and couldn’t believe that this would change his life forever.
The 70-year-old man named Liu from Yunnan, China spends his day fishing for oysters to be sold at the market. This energetic old man work hard to make ends meet and provide for his family. Liu is a fisherman and he has been fishing for his entire life and due to his old age, he has no strength to do some other jobs.
Until one day, he went fishing and threw his net to catch some oysters. At the end of the day, he pulled the net to see his catch but it turned out that the oysters he caught were old.
He again threw his net but again, he catches old oysters. This old man was terribly frustrated to only catch old oysters after fishing for a whole day. He then brought all his catch and turn the oysters into a meal for his family.
Little did he know, these old oysters will change his life forever. Thankfully, the old man didn’t throw the oysters for all of them contains expensive small pearls. It was his first time to see such amount of pearls inside an oyster.
Now, Liu just needs to sell those pearls and he could finally retire from fishing forever.
Life might be tough and full of struggles. Yet, the line is surely moving and at God’s perfect time, you will receive a life-changing blessing also. Let your waiting be coupled with patience and faith in God.
