Jesus is alive today
God has been gracious to me. Initially, the majority of my friends and family did not support the fact that I had decided to put my trust in God. I felt rather isolated, alone, sad and disappointed. It was as though I was fighting this battle alone and at one point I was very tired to go on any further. Sometimes other people’s negativity could affect your emotions and ultimately your health, which was why I had decided not to see most people when I was announced with cancer. I immersed myself in the Word of the Lord, and had many conversations with Him. Jesus is a loving God. He had always found a way to give me the right support and encouragement when I was at my lowest point. Here I would like to share some of these precious moments with you.
Christ My Strength
Each morning I would walk around my garden looking at my plants and flowers. I always stop in front of the Daisies admiring their beauty. As though they could speak, they were saying to me, “ Hang in there, Jesus is your strength!”
Jesus My Anchor of Hope
Peter once walked on water. As long as he had his eyes fixed on Jesus he was able to do it. But when he got distracted by the strong wind and wave he began to sink . Nevertheless, our loving Lord immediately reached out His hand to Peter.
This was a vision which the Lord gave me while I was low and depressed. He was always there to lift me out of the water when I began to sink. As words from a song says,” Christ alone, cornerstone, weak made strong, in the Saviour’s love, through the storm, His is Lord, Lord of all!”
I was overwhelmed with hope and adoration when I watched this DVD called ‘Indescribable’. The Lord of Heaven and Earth measures this universe with the palm of His hand. My problem is so minute and there is nothing my Heavenly Father couldn’t do.
Resting and Meditating on God’s Goodness
I always spent half hour sitting in my car during lunch hours listening to worship songs or good sermons. The praise and worship would touch my heart and I would continue to dwell on God’s goodness to me. Within half an hour my spirit would be rejuvenated and refreshed. Many times I feel as though I am the only person in this universe that matters to our Heavenly Father!
Be Strong and Courageous
An incident at work had bought me to tears, consequently all my emotions and bitterness welled up and I couldn’t stop crying. I was protesting to my Lord why He had allowed me to go through this terrible illness. I went home still having a “pity party” on my own.
Nevertheless I turned to my bible randomly and this scripture jumped at me- Joshua 1:9 –
“ Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage, do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord God is with you wherever you go”
The amazing thing was, since this day I became both emotionally and physically strong. God’s Word is strength and life!
