ramadan day 16

Today was a 'normal' day I suppose.  I got up ate suhoor, started fasting, then broke fast at sundown. 
It's interesting how humans adapt to different things. Looking at it a few weeks ago, I didnt think I would be able to fast for an entire month.  Now, I still feel urges to grab get a drink of water or grab a snack every now and then, but I'm used to going without food or water. 

I have a phone interview for a job in Singapore tomorrow.  I have mixed feelings about it.  It would be very exciting to live in a different country.  On the other hand, I really like my job now.  I'm worried that I wont like my job over there.  Maybe, I wont get a chance to pray at work, or I'm expected to work really long hours.  But, if I stay, where am I going with my life?  Do I live out my life in Houston?  I guess I will turn it over to Allah.  I hate not knowing what the future brings, but certainty is just an illusion anyway.  Really, I dont know what will happen tomorrow or next year.

Peace and blessings to all

  1. Good luck with your interview! Turning it over to God is the best thing to do. Those are all natural questions and concerns to have when considering such a big change. No one knows what will happen at anytime. Sometimes we plan for the future and it doesn't turn out the way we expected at all. Faith is trusting that God has a plan for us even when it seems there is no plan. By turning it over to God I can see you have a lot of faith. Hold on to that and you will get through anything.
