The Relationship

Do you feel that you belong to your church or CF?

Do you look forward to attend the activities and programs organized by them?

Do you feel that everyone around you is being genuine and sincere when they ask how are you?

Do you feel that there is a difference if your presence is at church or CF?

How about considering this set of questions:

Do you help others feel belong to your church and CF?

Do you think about the amount of background work involved in the activities and programs organized and ways you can help, even by prayer and a word of encouragement?

Do you feel that if it's anyone who can be genuine and sincere to others, for one, you can be true to God and yourself when you care for others at church and CF?

Do you feel that you long to make a difference in your presence wherever you go in being the salt and light?

While both set of questions above may be raised from time to time in various Christian churches and groups, the real reason of any follower of Christ do what they do, is simply because they were loved first and need not any other reason to love others.

So the more important question is - Are you His and is He yours..?

For at the end of the day, while the "world" tries to constantly (but secretly!) tell us of who we should be and the dreams we should aspire for - keeping your eyes onto Jesus can only be as real as the relationship you have with Him.. so until the end of days you will never stop loving Him and His people with all your heart, mind and soul!

I have been wearing “pink glasses” for some years until a discussion took place at the Young Adults Tuesday Bible Study struck me. Without me knowing, there’s no such thing as a small or big miracle because in truth, they are all considered as – miracles.

A pair of “pink glasses” is what blinds us from the truth. Imagine you see everything as pink since the day you were born and someone tells us that the object/subject matter is white but you see it as pink but understands it as “white”. That’s a distorted idea about the truth but you can’t see it because everything of that sort is pink for you, unless and until you remove the “pink glasses”.

All along, I perceive that miracles must be something great and appalling (in perspective of seeing as everything in pink), like how God enabled me to seek help from the policemen to admit my father to the hospital to get him treated. For me, this was an amazing miracle as I have been praying for him for around 8 years. While those things that I did not pray about, such as whether I could still wake up every new day or we could enjoy the good weather, I’ll just easily think that it’s a normal thing.

Until today, I still pray for my family situation and father’s salvation, though from time to time feeling tired. Why pray, in view that your Father in Heaven knows the things you have need of before you ask Him? Matthew 6:8b, New King James Version (NKJV)

Simply because God desires us to communicate with Him, just like how your family members, friends and love ones desire to talk or chit-chat with you. Prayer also helps us to struggle through issues and allowing it to change us. Sometimes, the situation or people that we pray about don’t change, but through the process - we are the ones that changed!

I too have ups and downs in my spiritual life and almost gave up praying and doing anything for my family’s situation. Should I stop? If I stop, will my father has any chance to behave as a normal person? I doubt so. What do you do, if you don’t feel like praying? Pray. Pray that God will help you to pray. To tell you the truth, once the prayer “engine” begins to start, your vehicle (prayer) will mobilize. 

But, don’t get me wrong. Sometimes when we pray, things won’t go the way we always want it to be. It does not mean God does not care or tarry in answering you because everything has its time and purpose for in Ecclesiastes 3:1-10, New King James Version (NKJV) says:-
Everything Has Its Time 
1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: 
2 A time to be born,And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; 
3 A time to kill,And a time to heal;A time to break down, And a time to build up; 
4 A time to weep,And a time to laugh;A time to mourn, And a time to dance; 
5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace,And a time to refrain from embracing; 
6 A time to gain,And a time to lose; A time to keep,And a time to throw away; 
7 A time to tear,And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; 
8 A time to love,And a time to hate; A time of war,And a time of peace.
