I pray to the Lord that all my thoughts and even my heart will be filled with Him—Jesus. I want to think of Him every day and night, so that my soul will be filled with His unconditional love, and not be bothered by the earthly concerns. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring. And I don’t know what will happen later. Things happen when you least expect. Right now, I’m alive and that alone is a blessing.
I owe my every breath to God. Four years ago, I could have died due to a severe asthma attack. But God let me live for another four years, you see. I am truthfully thankful because within those years I was able to accept Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord. I am thankful to God because He let me live in order for me to know Him more. I couldn’t wish for more. I must say, however, that four years were not enough to understand the greatness of our God. It’s not enough to study His word and it’s not enough to pay what He has done to my life. In fact, a lifetime of a healthy life is not enough. The greatness of our God is too vast and wide that no human being could try to fathom it.
I’m writing all these because the Lord has been good to me ever since I was born, in fact, I was still in my mother’s womb and He has been good to me. I’m writing this because I want my family to know that there is nothing to worry about. Whatever happens to me there is nothing to worry about. I want them to know that even if I die now, they must not cry for me. No, please don’t cry for me. Death is not to be feared of, if I happen to embrace mine, please don’t be sad. Especially to my father. I love you all.
And I also want you to know, whoever you are, that there’s nothing to worry about with your personal struggle because God is with you. You just have to be sensitive to His presence.
