I have previously created few blogs – one that focused on travel, another that focused on book abstracts and the other one, on my random thoughts and poems that at some point, I wrote about very sad poems. It felt that I am encouraging people to feel sadder and be in despair in their relationship journeys.
After the recent encounter with God, He clearly spoke to me to “stop writing sad poems; stop writing about a person’s longing to be loved by someone”. He had clearly instructed me to write about life, and my encounters of His great grace and love towards me.
On 22nd of July 2018, the word of God in Luke 6:38 came differently to me. Due to its familiarity, as we often heard this in offering part of the Sunday service, all too often, we just thought about giving financial resources to the house of God. But that Sunday was different; the service leader said, it just doesn’t talk about money – but rather what you are willing to give to Him; and it really struck my heart that time.
That Sunday night, I quickly checked all the versions of that verse and God brought me to the MSG version and it says:
“Give away your life; you”ll find your life given back, but not merely given back – given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. ”
It struck my heart hard so deep – that the words of a certain impression God sent me before, flashed back to me: “Daughter, I have given much to you; it is time to use it”.
I am in no way a professional writer, but I believed that the grace and wisdom of God are always there for me and readily available, so I could encourage other believers as I placed my life in the hands of the Master Potter.
