Hi everyone! It's been quite a while huh?
I was really busy with life. So far, 2013 is quite a tough year for me. I'm struggling with uncertainties and worries. I am also trying hard to figure out God's plan in my life. Recently, I got an encouragement from my favorite radio station, K-Love. So I thought I want to share this here with you.
That morning, the radio presenter was talking about keeping a diary or writing journals. I smiled because I like writing journals. She said that sometimes it's good to read back your journals, especially when you are facing a problem or when your life just feel difficult. You can see through various occasions in your past, how God's hands worked. You might felt that you were facing mountains of problems back then, but somehow God opened up a way! This could be a great encouragement... helping us to trust our current problems to God. If He was faithful in the past, He is also faithful today. He will help. He will open up a way for us.
It was an eye-opener for me. These past few years, I've been through a lot. And there were times when I felt that my problems were impossible to solve ... and yet again and again God showed me that nothing is impossible for Him. That moment, somehow I suddenly felt peaceful and happy. I know this time too ... as I wait for the future to unfold ... God's hands are at work. I am writing this post hoping that this can be a powerful reminder for me (or for others) in the future.
More encouragements from the Bible :)
