Forgotten

What would happen
if I fell of the face of the Earth?
Would anyone notice?

Some may grieve
one day goes by
their life goes on
back to normal.
Me leaving no impression
on their lives.
I become
forgotten.

Someone picked up a picture
saw my face
caught a quick memory of me
then let it go.
Forgotten.
Again.

I want to be remembered
by my peers. 

Want them to see
I loved them.
Jesus loves them.

Want them to know
I’m waiting for them
in Heaven.

Know that God has not
Forgotten

Miracles

You could say that I’ve experienced many miracles in my life. Tons of smaller ones like when I pray for some pain to go away, and He heals me. That actually occurs pretty often. Another smallish one that happened the other day was so awesome! First, I have a horrible memory. I was at work and had pulled up a lady’s profile on the computer. Somehow, it got deleted, and I was asked if I remembered the name. That is seriously impossible considering I had worked with at least 10 other names since then. I would never remember. I sent up a prayer begging for help, and guess what! About 5 minutes later, God told me her name. Oh my gosh! That would never have happened without God! I profusely thanked Him over and over. He is so amazing!!

A larger miracle that happened to me just last year was getting a job. That doesn’t sound like a miracle? Well it was because I wasn’t really looking too hard for one. I put my application in at two places that weren’t hiring at the moment, but they said they would give me a call when they were. One of the places that I applied to was GameStop. Everyone would like a job there, and since they weren’t hiring, I doubted I’d get the job. About one week after I applied, the manager gave me a call and asked if I would still like to work there. I said yes, and he told me that it was only seasonal. I was fine with that, so I went in for my interview. You may think that I am a good speaker because I am decent at writing. You’d be wrong. When I’m put on the spot, I fidget, and, sometimes, I can’t express things the way I intend. But by the Grace of God, I did excellent. He gave me the right answers and helped me to speak eloquently. Turns out that I got my first job at GameStop. Lots of people at my school were jealous because of the discount that I got there.

In February, GameStop laid me off. It was, after all, only a seasonal job. They told me that I was definitely rehirable. So I left on a good note there, but I was left without a job. At the time, my mom was looking for a job as well. She saw, in passing, that CVS was hiring, and that you could apply online. She told me about it, and suggested that I apply as well. I did, and I got a call to set up an interview. My mom never did. Again, God helped me speak fluently and I was, again, picked for the job despite me being a minor and unable to sell alcohol. They also over-hired.

Another thing that God has blessed me with all my life is my knowledge. Somehow, even though my memory is terrible, I never have to study for tests. That is such a blessing. The day of the test, I go into the classroom and get some last-minute cramming in, then take the test. More often than not, I ace it. I see people struggling and saying that they have to spend hours studying just to get a B. Another thing I do that these people generally don’t do, though, is intently listen in class. I think that helps a lot as well.

Even though my life is filled with lots of hard stuff, God does bless me. When He does, He pulls out all the stops!
