I was feeling down yesterday, you see, I am able to work here in the US because of the H1b visa, and the end of its validity is nearing. Not being able to see the future is frustrating! So I allowed myself to be engulfed by it. Bad idea! – The therapy? Writing! Before I slept, I know everything will work out for good.
5 years ago, I knew about H1b’s dual intent; I just wasn’t sure why I didn’t push for permanent residence in my dreams. Back then, I was fearful of the future, will my kids grow up not respecting us? Will they grow up mouthing bad words, just like in the movies? It was a valid fear since I have no idea what’s in store for us.
Now, 5 years after, 2 years being here in New Mexico, I know my kids are ok. We are in a place where I know we are ok, our future looks good. Unlike what I’ve seen in the movies, there’s really nothing to be afraid of.
I still don’t know what the future will hold for us with the visa I have, but what I am certain is that God is working for good. It’s just a matter of time and I believe He will make all things possible for us.
I believe it’s been done. No worries anymore. He’s in control.
To God be the Glory!
