He Is My Portion

“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. (Lam 3:24-26)

Being a child of God is blissful. We are blessed, protected, and guided by Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Yet we may encounter difficulties and sickness throughout our journey of life. As every morning is new, God’s grace is abundant. We still have hope when we are in distress. Facing the pressures and difficulties of life, why not try to seek peace and rest from prayers, adjust our emotions, relax oneself, and find the strength to start again.

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” (Ps 40:2 NIV)

Christianity is different from all other religions in the world, for we serve a risen Lord. The fact that Jesus Christ is alive is central to the Christian faith. In this world, no matter how chaotic our life might be, God is always in control because He is a risen Lord.

Yet I Will Not Forget You

Recently, some brothers and sisters who had not come to church in a long time came back to attend service. I was both surprised and glad to see them again. When I told other members that they had returned, they also reacted with surprise and joy. However, our reactions made me realize one thing – in a sense, we were surprised because we were not expecting them to come back. In a sense, though we must have prayed for these lost sheep at one point in time, we were surprised because for a long time, we may have forgotten about them.
