Yesterday, a worship team member asked me "why bad things always happen when we are around?"
I don't know why I promptly answered, "because we are the best, that's why we can handle bad and screw-up things."
that day itself, I went through a lot. A lot of things that could go
wrong, went wrong! I nearly wanted to break down a few times. In fact,
it's the story of my life at times.
Each time I have
such questions of WHY, I am always meet with answers from God, who I
believe also send some people to remind me too, with the message that
sounds like - "because you are the best person for the role/job/in this
Hate to admit it but sometimes it's true in many ways. Yup, insert meme quote here : "win liao lor".
a reason why we are in the heat of the action when things can go south.
Because God is preparing us for something good and have prepared us for
such situation. He knows what's best and He know who can deal with it.
The best part is, although often we forget, that if God put us there, He
will bring us through it.
How David (in the Bible)
able to face Goliath? Because he has faced many threats to his herd of
sheep such as the bears and lions.
That proves the
sovereignty of God, which I learn again and again, to live it. It's not
that I want trouble to happen, but that's God's way to mold us to be
better for Him.
Today's Good Friday and we often
associate the story of the Cross to this day. I am sure in those days,
in the midst of noises asking for Jesus' death, there are questions from
some parties that sounds like, "why such things happen to innocent
people?" or "can't God do something about it?"
in fallen world, and it takes the best to redeem us from eternal
condemnation. That's why Jesus - son of God, son of man, the purest of
Lamb - is the best offered to us so we can be restored in our
relationship with God. Such selfless act for a world, people like you
While the cross is symbol of death and
suffering, what Jesus done on the Cross reminds us that it takes the
good Lord to come to Earth to make people good again.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
- Romans 5:8
the world we seems to always be lost of hope, let's look to the Cross.
See the image of love, the amazing grace poured out for us.
My prayers to you all reading this is that whatever you are going through, God is with you. Remember His faithfulness and grace.
BLESSED GOOD FRIDAY!
