So almost to the end of this year and probably this could be my last post…!! It is good to look back and see all the marvelous things God had done for us this year….!!
Now what about the things you hoped for? The things that remained unfulfilled!! Do you get angry at God or on some person? What about when people much resembling to the friends of Job come and test you saying .. ” God doesn’t love you, that’s why ….!!” or ‘ you had mistaken the voice of God..!’
Doesn’t it hurt when something like this is said…and you have ‘no’ answer to give?
Once a Pastor from our church had a major accident. The driver had run the car over the road median and the window glass cracked and injured the Pastor who was sitting at the back seat. He had some injuries on his face and knees..etc..He was bed ridden and also suffered from a hip dislocation. We had gone to see him and he asked Uncle..what do you think about this Pastor Ayya? Some say this accident was to test me, some say to prune me, some say it was the work of the devil and still some say that I had committed a sin !!
I personally write blogs not that people should read it..it’s my soul speaking to me. It’s my Soul’s ECG. So,…let me tell you what I could share about what I feel…This is my perspective-
Yes, even when I look back to this year. It was a significant year in many ways. God taught me many things..Yes, even I had hoped for some things which did not take place. Part of the certainty has gone away and so are some C9 experiences. Same with you isn’t it ? 🙂 God is not partial towards anyone. Now do you want to remain hooked up by these things…. !! NOOO… move on.. It’s a brighter morning today…!! Remember one thing in life –
‘ I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]’ John 16:33
The promise is…’in Jesus our peace…not in the world’..!! I personally need to run to this verse almost 4-5 times in a week. Trust me… Hope is what sustains me. Hope in Jesus…!! The world will one day fade away and all the other things ..yet His word will remain forever !!
You know what…while many people suffered a lot during these floods…as a family we did not loose anything. So should I bounce and shout .. “Hallelujah … God loves me so much that He kept away the effects of the flood from me” ?
RUBBISH !! I have to use this coarse word here…!! We are blind…!! If this was true..what about the thousands of people who were effected – didn’t God love them? Of course He did!!! Those who lost their lives, it was because they were sinners is it ? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !! Keep away such thoughts from your mind….!!
” I don’t become a Saint if only good things happen to me and no one becomes a sinner if bad things happen to them. BTW..who is the judge here … to see if a thing is “good or bad”… !! Remember our sight is limited and we are mortal beings.
Recently was going through a p interest link and read this inspirational quote and yes ..it was very effective
“DO NOT JUDGE , You DON’T KNOW WHAT STORM I HAVE ASKED HER TO WALK THROUGH – GOD”
So…. this is how I love to express my thoughts ..!! I deeply respect every child of God because “as I am so are they to God”. I am no superior…!!
Finally this link sums it up ( *** while you read the lyrics ..please note it’s He and Him not he /him )
Hoping for a new grace the coming year 🙂
God bless you !!
