Job 28 (NIV)
I found it interesting that in the middle of Job, is a chapter on finding wisdom. It's fitting here because up until this point Job and his friends have been talking about what Job needs to do to be redeemed and Job wants a real connection with God. Job fears God because he has this infinite power that exceeds what human mind can comprehend. But he still loves God. What's amazing is, this chapter says that wisdom cannot be found looking for it, it's hidden even from the birds and the beasts. But my favorite verse from this is, v28. "And he said to the human race, 'the fear of the Lord- that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.'" God didn't leave us without a piece of understanding. Wisdom is believing and fearing Him. I don't believe it is like having a fear of spiders. But this kind of fear is knowing that he has complete control and can do anything and yet he loves us and wants a relationship with us. How amazing! #Godisgood#allthetime#Hisloveforus
SO.... Fb has banned and blocked me again... and I remember saying the other day that I'd take it as a blessing in disguise (but yesterday, I wasn't really practicing what I had preached... Truth be told it was not 100%)... and this Wednesday morning, I pop in to see if I am free from fb jail and allowed to share my work far and wide... and to also chk out how much my post reach has dropped.... And I chk out the post reach and it's REAL GOOD.... still trying to figure it out, I go into notifications and I see that this poster here is gettin some action! I'm like "WOAH!...This old thing here..." And it has gotten more than a 100 likes/loves and maybe I'm still not awake because I'm wondering, "How come I NEVER saw this?!?"... so I go into comments and it's being shared like CRAZY and I quickly scroll and see WHY!!!!

The memory may be there but the pain won't last always. God heals. The growth that comes from the process hold the memories that make way for an awesome testimony. I remember when God graced me to live and wake up out of my sleep when I could have died that night. I woke up in the morning and spent 6 days in a hospital bed praising Him. After a miraculous recovery, I'm still thanking God. He sustains . He heals. His promises never fail. God is our source and strength; a present help in the time of trouble . #healingpower#godisgood#godheals

"I first got to know Christ 12 years ago when I was a Poly student. However, I did not accept Jesus into my life then, as I wanted more time for myself. Being a foreign student, most of my friends left Singapore after graduation. But I decided to stay and find a living here. At that time, office and home were the only 2 places I went to.
Last year, my landlord Aunt Jane brought me to Hope Church. In the church, I met many nice people and I felt very comfortable and relaxed during service. From then, I started attending service every weekend as much as possible. I could feel that Jesus was giving me another chance to know Him. After 2 months, I decided to take the first step - I prayed the sinner's prayer during the service to receive Jesus. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Now, I belong to a wonderful Life group with a group of awesome brothers and sisters. I really enjoy and treasure the times we spend together."

I had the honor of speaking today at Dad's memorial service. One of the stories I shared is a memory from the summer of 2014 when mom had to go visit family in Georgia. Ruthie and I had the opportunity to stay with dad for a week because he was already quite ill with dementia. One afternoon we were sitting on his beloved front porch and he was contemplating the sky. He pointed at the sky and said, "Look how blue that is! I wonder what's behind the blue?" He didn't say anything about the clouds even though they were numerous and white and fluffy. He simply repeated over and over again, "Do you see how blue that is? I wonder what's behind the blue?"
I cried today not because of grief due to the loss of our dad because our grief endured far too many years as we watched the decline of a godly man who loved others and life!
I celebrated with tears because I know my dad is with his Lord and Savior behind that beautiful blue sky! He is whole again! These are the pics I took that day.
When we are born again we truly are born again in the sight of God and His congregation. Your soul is free from sins snare, the devil no longer has a hold on you, and your relationship with God is ever lasting. Being reborn again though doesn't mean we won't ever sin again, but we have the desire not to and to repent when we have. Look after your brothers and sisters and God Bless! 😊
