Why go to the Church?
   Share to you a message forwarded by a friend...

    Churchgoer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. "I've gone and done it for 30 long years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I canít remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the preachers are wasting theirs too by giving lengthy sermons at all." 

   This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: "I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.

   Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" When you are DOWN to nothing...God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible, and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical and our spiritual nourishment! When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say,Ē Jesus, could you get that for me?"

Land of Dreams
   My mind is settled and at peace... October is almost ending and a few months to go another year will passed away... I have no plans and I do not know what the Lord's plans is fo me by next year... I am excited actually about that thought... a few weeks back I was thinking about the Land of dreams... something came into my mind as I am browsing the pages of my bible "The Promised Land" ... the land that the Lord gave to His people for His promised to Abraham and Jacob...  for sure the excitement is different when those promises was spoken and given by the Lord... 

   I have given up something that I thought would make me happy... and I thanked the Lord that He makes me realized that not everything is essential... It is supposed to be a dream come true for me, for my career and for my family yet the Lord is Lord! Money cannot make me happy and happy is different from having the Joy that I am feeling right now... it is coming from within... I'm supposed to go to the Land of Dreams... why did I say Land of Dreams? it is because it is where the place where you could actually make some of your dreams come true... human ways... but then it is the Lord who have much greater plans than what I have for my self... greater than what I am dreaming of....

Hold me, it hurts!
   Suffering can become so intense at times that we don't know how we can take any more pain. It's in these moments that Jesus reassures us of His presence and sustains us, even though for reasons we do not understand the hurt is not taken away.

   It was not long ago, when I suffered into these pain that I do not know if I will still survive. It is not only once I cried to the Father to take this away from me and almost everyday I cried and of course loneliness crept in again and sadness hungs around me... I almost died of depression and loneliness...I remembered when I was young I always asked my mom to stay on my side and hold my hand and tells me that she will stay on my side as soon as the treatment is ended. Her hugs along with her loving reassuring words have carried me through those difficult times...

   That's a glimpse of what Jesus does for those who trust Him in their suffering. He draws us to Himself and says that He will be with us in our pain, for nothing can separate us from His love (Rom. 8:39). I was delivered... I know I have no one to turn to during those years except the Lord... It was so painful and I often cry out for release, but no relief comes... The pain persist, but I sense God's presence. I remembered I have this one entry into my diary that asked.... Where is God when it hurts?.... It was all written in red and has a big question mark on it... yet the Lord was so faithful... He is holding me during those years... Later, as I looked back, I can see how the Lord was with me, caring for me, meeting my deepest needs...

   I know, no matter what painful situation I may be facing today.... Jesus is holding me....

   We can go through anything, if we know Jesus is going with us...
