Thank you for all who prayed with me!

The Lord Jesus said in John 15:5,"...apart from Me you can do nothing."
Now Lord, "Let them know that it is your hand, that you, O LORD, have done it. Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness." (Psalm 109:27, 115:1)

Yesterday(November 25,2012), was the first time I sang the solo part in front of the congregation of our church for our monthly choir song offering. I was also tasked to do a short exhortation for the song. I was so nervous, I didn't want to distract people from worshiping the Lord with such a beautiful song just because of my nervousness. The song is Light of the world by Dennis Jernigan. Thank you to those who have prayed with me on the song offering yesterday. The Lord's grace was amazing, not only to me but to the whole choir. He graciously helped us. I just entrust all the fruits of the message of the song and the exhortation to Him.

Remember dear reader, we can only perform and serve, but apart from Christ, all is in vain.

Just like Jonah, who was called by the Lord, sinned against Him, and yet, when He repented, God still didn't change His mind about Jonah. That is how amazingly gracious the Lord is. God is so holy that He hates any sin! He could have just stricken Jonah by a lightning, or even allowed the ground to swallow Him up. But He didn't do that, He patiently called Him for the purpose that He was called to do. After that, patiently teaching Jonah about the things that he still had to learn in life. The Lord is Holy, He is just when He judges. He is the God of second chances. Let's just be careful to quickly grab the chances He gives us, because we don't know when will be our last.

Once again, thank you so much and have a blessed week!

All the glory goes to my Lord who loved me and gave Himself up for me. ♥
