Dear GongGong, You were dancing in Heaven with the Lord last night weren't you?
I haven't seen you for quite a while now; I regret not being able to visit last year, for I won't see you again.
But I know that you are up there, watching over me and those you love, together with Daddy God. PoPo is being very strong in faith and courage, may the Lord grant her peace of mind and heart. Thank you GongGong for being my granduncle =) Love you.
Last night I was just blown away.
It started off as just a discipleship to me - I almost wanted to back out because of work stress - then after I saw my results, the Holy Spirit seemed to say to me: "Even when you had such discipleships back in Term 2, wasn't I always with you when you did your work? Were you not blessed then?"
Yes I was. So I went. To start off, I began crying during worship itself. I was thinking about GongGong and asking God how is he up there in Heaven. He was dancing with us, with Jesus. Wow. I thanked the Lord for letting me know, and for supporting and comforting my daddy and my popo.
And when I sat down, the Lord told me, "Listen Well", and my ears perked up as Pastor Chris Hill stepped onto the platform.
Pastor Chris was superb! He was so funny and full of passion and energy as he spoke. His message really touched me: A Dream Inside A Dream. What hit me was the idea that I have a dream from God that he wants me to make real.
I heard Daddy God ask, "Do you remember Term 2? You have a dream, dear child. Find the dream, trust the Lord and obey what the Spirit tells you. Start with small tasks, the dream will grow clearer."
My quiet time journal actually had this particular verse printed as a border along the bottom, that totally went in line with what Pastor Chris spoke about - "I can do all things through Chris who strengthens me." -Philippians 4:13
And it is true that working on those small tasks and obeying God itself was challenging sometimes. But I know that I have God's favour over my life =). Pastor Chris also mentioned how there are people assigned to try to stop you, to weaken you, to push you down. But then again we need these people, we need them to make us vulnerable, because it is what they do to us that makes us yearn more and cry out more for God.
I'm ready to face the future with Him; Find the dream, and make it a reality =D.
