Few more hours away and I'll be back in KL!Can't wait to meet up with family and friends!!
Anyway after much abandoning of this blogosphere...am back!!
Another 48 hours....is Christmas!!
Blessed Christmas everyone...may you have an awesome time of reunion and celebration!
Because Christmas marks the birth of the Saviour...
Went through some tough times in the absence of blogging but whatever it is I thank God that it is over (or some still ongoing) I do believe from whatever circumstances that I've been through He is ever faithful and He never fails to encourage me.
Currently am reading 2 books about testimonies of people going through persecution because they choose to follow Jesus and am totally encouraged by it.I know never will I understand the process of how they endure through the darkest moment of their lives.However, profound similarities is found between all the stories even all of them happen in different time, zone, location and of course they don't know one another....
They are freed though they are prisoned
They rejoice in the midst of sorrow,
They sing praises unto Him in the midst of pain,
They continue to choose to do His work in the midst of risking their lifes,
Externally, they seems to be weak and helpless but inside they are well rested in His steadfast love...
They live their life once and they live to the fullest for God...
Some scorned and say, they are fools and fanatic for their faith, why are they so sure of what they are doing will be rewarded?What if whatever that is being in the bible are just another good fairytale or myth,so why waste your life?Why not just run away or deny Him when being interrogated,at least they can save themselves from being imprisoned??and etc etc questions...
As followers of Christ, we know that their reward is not on this transient place we call Earth but heavenwards.They live like a firework, short-lived but awesomely spectacular and impactful! By faith, 100percent trusting in Him..
To all of them, they did/still is doing God's work fearlessly...because of Jesus is the one who truly sets them free:
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life.He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never go thirsty.But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given to me, but raise them up at the last day.For my father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."(John 6: 35-40)
So for this Christmas season and the year of 2011, are we ready to live up to the standard that are constantly being raised in our walk with Him?The challenges are never meant to be easy but at the same time neither will it be too difficult...make sense?? ;)
