I know this is not the usual content of my blog but at one point I’d like to share my faith to every single reader and to show my inner soul to each one of you. I hope I get to pull you closer to me after this article. I may never know how you may react on this after nevertheless, I still would like to share you about this faith and experience.
To break off from my vacation articles from this summer (which I will continue tomorrow :) ), I with my sister attended our weekly service and having Nick as today’s speaker was such a great blessing.
As you can see he has no limbs and arms, the first few minutes you see him you’d feel a bit awkward on how he could actually function without his other parts. And as I would remember my dad would say “Once you get your hands cut-off everything is over” and seeing him debunks those words. Seeing this man who has totally nothing is just powerful with his talk on how many people would love to hear him and the chance of having more people to believe in the Christian faith.
Something that made me realize today, He let me have a wrecked life to make me discover more about Him. I’ve seen myself hopeless and have no clue how to get back up. You may say that this was a ‘coping mechanism’ but for how many years I’ve lived a horrible life and an unperfect one but the day I’ve accepted I cannot do it alone and when I accepted him gave me happiness.
To those who know me and see me daily they know that in all trials I always have that smile on my face which I never had back then. Today I must say God trained me well to be very kind and have patience to people as my experiences made me understand where most people are coming from. He gave me strength and be able to say it’s OK when my Father says ‘No’ to my prayers. He has taught me well to have pure faith in Him that when all else fail just hold on Him tighter because like Nick I may not be disabled but I am emotionally damaged from the past and even on my everyday living as people may hurt you and put you down.
I’d like to share a Christian song’s lyrics that keeps me going on everyday no matter how down I could be:
Through You I can do anything
I can do all things
‘Cause it’s You who gives me strength
Nothing is impossible
Through You blind eyes are open
Strongholds are broken
I am living by faith
Nothing is impossible
I’m not gonna live by what I see
I’m not gonna live by what I feel
Deep down I know that You’re here with me
And I know that You can do anything
I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe in you
As Nick would say it, God hears all our prayers and you don’t need to pray for it over and over again until you get a ‘Yes’. Pray that you may understand His answer when He says ‘No’. Pray that He gives you strength and show you the right direction and believe that what He gives you as a Father is what’s best for each and one of us.
I am not perfect and may never be perfect on my Christian faith but I would still like to keep on learning and be better for the Lord. Today I am thankful as this is the 2nd Sunday that I am attending the weekly service with my younger sibling. I am thankful for the Lord for guiding me in my family on slowly bring my family near Him.
I hope I somehow blessed your Sunday and may God work on your life slowly, day by day just how He revealed Himself to me. Feel free to send me messages as I would love to hear about your faith as well. :)
