Thankful For Being Alive (Chinese/English)

Mark Twain said, “The two most important days in life are when you are born and the day you find out why.”

After I was redeemed and saved by Jesus Christ, 

My life journey has been more and more enlightened;

Like the noonday sun, it shines brighter and brighter.

The path of the righteous is like the morning sun,

     shining ever brighter till the full light of day. (Proverbs 4:18)

But my season has only begun halfway through the 100-year life on earth.

During the thirty years since my conversion, with the presence of the mighty Lord Jesus, who created the universe, I have become more and more convinced that there is nothing on earth that could paralyzed the faithful saints.

I am no longer afraid of failing or making mistakes because of the choices I am inspired to make every day by Jesus.

God the Creator can take what we see as plain as water and turn it into good wine;

He can take what he sees as a small loaf of bread and fish and multiply it into 12 baskets full of abundance (John 6).

Therefore, when you surrender your life and have a desire to do something, turn to the Lord for wisdom, and take one step at a time.

To be open in your heart, not to be concerned about gains and losses, and to read the Bible and listen to the word of the Jesus Christ every day, is to walk with the Lord.

Through the Holy Spirit in your spirit, you ought to seek Father God and you shall find the path Jesus Christ is leading you on.

馬克吐溫說:「人生兩個重要的日子,一是出生,二是找到人為何活著。」

我被主耶穌聖靈尋回救贖後開始,

我的人生意義愈來愈開朗,

如同正午的陽光,愈照愈明。

義人的路好像黎明的光,越照越明,直到日午。 (箴言4:18)

然而這日正當中的季節從更年期才開始,

世上百歲的人生才走了一半而已。

信主三十多年來,有創造宇宙的大能主耶穌同在,

我愈來愈確信世界有什麼能叫我們畏懼呢?

每天有主耶穌感動去做的選擇,不再害怕失敗或犯錯,

因為創造主上帝可以把人看為平淡的水,變為美好的酒,

把人看為微小的五餅二魚,倍增成為滿籮筐的豐盛。(看約翰福音第六章)

所以,有願做的心,就向主求智慧,一步一腳印去走。

敞開心,不計較得失,天天讀聖經真理,聽主話語活著,就是與主同行。

有聖靈在你心中,你會尋求天父上帝,就必能尋見主耶穌引導你走的道路。
