LOVE STORY

18 Nov

 

One day, I woke up early in the morning to watch the sunrise. Ah the beauty of God’s creation is beyond description. As I watched, I praised God for His beautiful work. As I sit there, I felt the Lord’s presence with me, He asked me, He asked me. “Do You love me? “ I answered, “Of course God! You are my Lord and Savior”. Then He asked. “If you were physically handicapped, would you still love me?” I was perplexed. I looked down upon my arms, legs and the rest of my body and wondered how many things I couldn’t be able to do the things that I took for granted. And I answered. “It would be tough Lord but I would still love You.” Then the Lord said. “If you were blind, would you still love me? How could I love something without being able to see it? Then I cought of all the blind people in the world and how many of them still loved God and His creation. So I answered. “It’s hard to think of it, but I would still love You.” The Lord then asked me. “If you were deaf you still listen to my Word?” How could I listen to anything being deal? Then I understood, Listening to God’s Word is not merely using our ears, but our hearts. I answered. “It would be tough Lord but I would still listen to Your Word.” The Lord then asked. “If you were mute, would you still praise My Name?” How I praise without a voice? Then it occurred to me: God wants us to sing from our very heart and soul. It never matters what we sound like. And praising God is not always with a song but when we are persecuted, we give praise with our words of thanks. So I answered. “Though I could not physically sing, I would still praise Your Name.” And the Lord asked. “Do you really love me?” With courage and strong conviction, I answered bodily. “Yes Lord I love You because You are the one and true God!” I thought I had answered well but God asked. “THEN WHY DO YOU SIN?” I answered. “Because I am only human. I am not perfect.”  “THEN WHY IN TIMES OF PEACE DO YOU ASTRAY THE FURTHEST? WHY ONLY IN TIMES OF TROUBLE DO YOU PRAY THE EARNEST?” No answers. Only tears. The Lord continued. “Why only sing at fellowships and retreats? Why seek me only in times of worship? Why ask things so selfishly? Why ask things so unfaithfully?” The tears continued to roll down my cheeks. “Why are you ashamed of Me? Why are you not spreading the good news to others and In your own family? Why in times of persecution, you cry to others when I offer My shoulder to cry on? Why make excuses when I give you opportunities to serve in My Name?”  I tried to answer but there was no answer to give. “You are blessed with life. I made you not to throw this gift away. I have blessed you with talents to serve Me but still you don’t have time for me and you continue to turn away. I have revealed My Word to you but you do not gain knowledge. I have spoken to you but your ears were closed. I have shown My blessings to you but your eyes were turned away. I have sent you servants but you sat idly by as they were pushed away. I have heard your prayers and I have answered them all. “DO YOU TRULY LOVE ME?” Still I could not answer. How could? I was embarrassed beyond belief. I had no excuse. What could I say to this? When my heart had cried out and the tears had flowed, I said. “Please forgive me Lord. I am unworthy to be your child. The Lord answered. “That is My Grace, My child.” I asked.  “Then why do you continue to forgive me? Why do you love me so? The Lord answered. “Because you are my creation. You are My child. I will never abandon you. When you cry, I will have compassion and cry with you. When you shout with joy, I will laugh with you. When you are down, I will encourage you. When you fall, I will raise you up. When you are tired, I will carry you. I will be with you till the end of days and I will love you forever.” Never have I tried so hard before. How could I have been so cold? How could I have been so cold? How could I have hurt God as I had done? I asked God. “HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE ME?” The Lord answered me. “THIS IS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU.” The Lord stretched out His arms and I saw His nail pierced hands. I bowed down at the feet of Christ, my Savior. And for the very first time I truly prayed.g

    This is the fact and I really don’t deny it… I’m not just pointing myself but for all the people out there…. We are very blessed because He always forgives us whenever we commit sins but why we don’t give back to Him…? A simple Thank You could be better but why we don’t give thanks to Him..?

    This is the biggest question and remains question until now….

    You are the only person that could answer this you are the only one who could change yourself when it comes to God… Praise God!

      Thank you so much for giving your time reading this topic.. So glad to read your comment because nowadays, few people would give their time (even a little time) to read topics that is about God. Yeah, your are right let start now! Let start first by asking for forgiveness to our God for all the mistakes that we have committed. After that, we are now ready to start walking the road of righteousness. Amen to our Almighty Father! Let’s keep praying for this will be the greater salvation that we can give to ourselves to the eternal life and most importantly let us not forget to love God and be in love with God throughout our entire life.
