To cut the story short, we sent her to a private hospital, got one of the best doctor to attend to her, X-rays were taken & the doctor initiated another CT scan. When mum told me about this, my first reaction was, "Oh Christ, this must be costly!" as I know all the scans are expensive, indeed this medical incident was expensive. However, the next day, the scan was reviewed, my sister was just suffering from indigestion & all is good! Thank you Jesus!
At times, I don't understand God's plan. Why are there trials and tribulations? I came to comprehend this => when God does not give us what we want, it does not means He is not loving us but strengthening us inside. When God shuts a window, He will open a door. When God shuts a door, He will open a Big Gate! Amen?! I never dream I will blog for the Glory of God! I never dream I will sit still in Church, listening to sermons, to share God's love for us! Jesus transforms me! Beloved, trust God, trust the goodness of God! Trials can destroy us if we don't have a good opinion of God! We can rejoice in trials as all things work together for Good! Troubles and trials have redemptive quality! God will use us, our experience to be a Blessing of someone out there...
Now I know I am not an accident but born with a purpose in life! Out of our strength of trials, we will strengthen others! Let the result speak for itself! Just like now I am busy training my team, in fact a new team was formed out of His grace, that is why I been so busy but I want to make it a point monthly no matter how busy I am, I must blog to share with all beloved, His goodness & grace.
When we lose our temper with a Child, Christ intervenes: "I've Paid for that." When we tell a lie & all of Heaven groans, our Savior speaks up: "My death covered that Sin." As we lust, gloat, covet, or judge, Jesus stands before the tribunal of Heaven & points to the Blood-Streaked cross. "I've already made provision. I've taken away the sins of the World." "You therefore my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." 2 Tim 2:1 [NKJV]
Lift our eyes off the weeds. Major in the grace of God. "Always be joyful. Pray continually, & give thanks whatever happens. That is what God wants for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thess 5:16-18 [NCV]. Always be joyful. Give thanks whatever happens. Learn to handle troubles cheerfully & with good opinion, as opportunities rather than irritations for there are plenty of big jobs waiting for people who are not afraid of troubles...Impossible, we say? How do we know? How do we know until we give every day a chance?
