God has His own timing in each and everyone life.
This is truly a huge topic to share, but I will just narrow it down to my personal journey with God. For I believe God created each one of us uniquely so that we able to live our life the unique way as well.
God always long for a intimate relationship from each of us, it is through our personal relationship with Him that we able to discover our unique purpose on this planet earth. Hence, never take it lightly of your personal relationship with God.
To be honest, I am actually dint take a serious thought of my relationship with God initially when I first came to know Christ. For instant, it was just a conversion to accept Christ as my personal Lord and Saviour during 2010. As to me by that time, God’s Salvation and Good News is all about knowing the Creator of this earth.
Thus, I was trained to be commit to a church and serve in church as how the Holy Bible tells us about. I never given a second thought to ponder on every action that I take. But God is good all the time, He created us to have freewill, to be able to question things we don’t truly understand…
Consequently, one thing leads to the other, I started to question and had argument of certain things or matters that I don’t understand. It was truly a roller coaster journey. Moreover, God knows my heart very well, His grace is always sufficient to me. Through much of the searching to understand God’s own heartbeat for His child, I was blessed to get to know more deeply about God’s word, His heartbeat and His will for us.
As a consequences, I discovered it is actually a good way to start when we started to dispute on things we truly don’t understand. It is an opportunity in life that we can encounter God more and more. The more we questions, it actually helps to make the unclear clear.
It is really a funny process to me, but I am eternally GRATEFUL to God for His unfailing LOVE for me. To be specific on a certain issue in my life, it would be the most question that everyone ask, “If God truly love me, why would SUCH THING happened?”
I think everyone would started to question their faith when a TRAGEDY happened. In this issue, I won’t say that God let the tragedy happened, but instead we are living in broken world, which hurting and pain is unavoidable. But in God, we are able to find rest and peace.
For me, during 2012, one of my close aunt passed away because of cancer. I was so enthusiastic and active in serving in church for God, but I never take time to spend with her. Hence, when such tragic happens, I question God! “Why you didn’t take away the cancer? Why you let such things happened? Why you dint give me chance to share gospel to her?” A lot of ‘WHY’ questions keep pop up in my head.
Gracefully, God is good. From that moments onwards, I learned to argue in matters that I don’t understand. One step at a time, God answered my prayer. He never let me go even when I doubt about Him oppositely it is a chance that God leads me to know Him deeper than the previous way of my knowledge of Him. It is an adventurous journey to be leads by the Holy Spirit.
All I can conclude, God is marvelous and magnificent in teaching me life lesson.
God has His personal timing in telling me matters of my life. He know when is the exact time that I need to learn LESSON A, when is the exact location to tell me LESSON B or even when is the exact situation to teach me LESSON C. He is like a coach to me, a father that teach His daughter to learn.
There is no any other teacher or coach that be able to teach me so precisely. Which is why I always felt grateful to had know Him more deeply and build such eternal relationship with Him. It is such a privilege, just like having a superstar friend that willing to share His plan and life with you, or you had a billionaire friend that willing to teach you about investment without require your payment!
As I walking my life journey with God, one step at a time, is just like climbing a mountain. It is never an easy way to go but for sure it is a joyful journey. I am not sure how many of you love hiking, but hiking requires stamina. If you never once climb any mountain or hill, it would be similar like you are taking staircase for may be 11 store high?! haha
As I climb up the hill, there will be time I am exhausted, that need a stop, there will be time I am able to climb easily (especially at the beginning), there will be time I need a long rest, there will be time as well that I felt like giving up, or just say that is it!
But the journey with God is an eternal journey, I know that my journey and my story with Him is everlasting, and I believe as long as I stay connected with Him, He will always keep me on track.
Certainly, there will be a time I felt wanna be rebellious, but God know it all, He is always patience and kind to wait for me. There is no one on earth that has such capacity of love. All I can see in the world, is everyone is rushing to fulfil their dream, if you are not in his or her plan, soon you will be out of the picture of their life. But in God, it is a different story!
He always wanted us to be in His story. He remember every single moments of our life, He knew it all, even when we run away from Him, His loving heart still there with an everlasting open arm awaits for us to return.
In the course of time, never give up in seeking His face even when you are mad at Him or even blame Him for anything, just try to give a chance for God to tell you something. Doubtlessly, someday in the future you will found the answer.
Never give up in your relationship with God. Hang in there.
Keep your curiosity on, keep on questioning in life, search for the answer of what you doubt with, for certain, someday somehow you will find it!
For God is good and He indeed is a loving Father that we able to call Him friend, Abba Father, our Redeemer, our Saviour, our Hope and eternality Lover in life.
