Hehe, Joy, yes you are amazing! But sorry to let you know that I am not writing about you. Perhaps I will, in the foreseeable future *gasp*Oh, no! Look what studying law has done to me!*
In my 22 years of life, I have gone through much joyful moments and painful times too. In fact, to me life seems to have more painful moments than happy ones although I have learned gradually how to see things from the brighter side. But ultimately, I don't see a definite JOY.
However, life seems to have taken its turning point. For the past 5 months, I have been through more struggle and persecution, psychologically and emotionally, from all sorts of people, including those I love dearly, than the sum of challenges I faces in my life before these 'new life' began. Despite all these persecutions, I was never sad for a second.
Luke 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. (KJV)
Yes, I was hurt on the way, and trampled on the ground, and thrown into a pit of sorrowful fire. Amazingly, I was joyful, truly JOYFUL, all the way.
Gal 5:2222 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, (KJV)
Thank God. If it was not for HIM, I would most probably suffer a long, slow death, or end up in Tanjung Rambutan, or hell by now. I would like to take this opportunity to ask for a favour from my brothers and sisters who read this to keep me in your prayer. As Jared said: 'At the rate you are growing, the devil will take opportunity to make you fall really hard.' TQ.
Clearly, that which does not kill me will make me stronger. Amen.
