Little did I expect on the 5th of February morning, as I left for work in a usual manner about the dreadful event which awaited me. I was resuming my work after a week of viral fever.

It seemed to be a pleasant morning when I left for work but somehow that very day the crowd that overflowed onto Mira road station left me claustrophobic, amidst all the people. Despite the crowded trains and time constraint in order to reach my workplace, I tried boarding every possible train, but after an hour of unsuccessful effort, I made up my mind to board the very next train anyhow.

So, I boarded the very next train trying to squeeze in to that unrelenting crowd, to which I was successful to an extent but the lady who was ahead of me in order to stand comfortably pushed me toward the door. Unsure of the situation, I tried to step down and get off, but the train started moving and my backpack got stuck which made the situation even more difficult to escape.

Seeking, crying out for help, I was balancing myself on the slippery rod with one hand and the tip of the handle at the ceiling of the train with the other hand. I was unsure of making it safely until the next stop of my train. Due to weakness, I was losing out my grip from both my hands, in that few seconds I prayed and asked God for HIS will to be fulfilled even if meant death, I was ready to leave my hands free and fall off the train. But, God in His mercy held me and strengthened me and let another lady hold me in that frightening moment and saved me.

I was alive! But more than the fact of being alive, I realized that God has a purpose for which I was saved.There is no doubt that I was disturbed by this untoward situation, but my faith was renewed with the joy of being a partaker of His purpose in my life.

Jeremiah 29:11 states His wonderful plan for our life.

In Ecclesiastes 12:13, King Solomon at the end of his life concludes that, the only worthwhile life is one of honour and obedience to God – the ultimate duty of all mankind.

Isn’t it amazing to know that our Heavenly Father longs for us, and awaits for His children to return to HIM. It’s my prayer and hope for each of you to walk with HIM, know HIM because there is no greater thing than this. I am experiencing it and I can’t express how wonderful it is. Therefore, I encourage you to experience HIM too.

I thank God for this opportunity to share this testimony of my life with all of you. Asking each of you to remember me and uphold me in your prayers.

God bless you,

Praisy John
