I was speaking to a close friend of mine who is a brother in Christ ... he is going through a tough time to the extent that he is angry with God regarding what he is going through..... actually he is too caught up in his own world to realized that all he had to do was to let go and let God in and that most of his problems were his own doing ... but he had reached a point where he is blaming God for all the bad things in his life.... it is so easy to point a finger at God when things go bad ... we forget the times when He had proven Himself to be faithful and merciful. I am guilty of that as well .. when things go well .. it is so easy to forget God and when things go wrong, we forget His goodness and put a finger at God, blaming Him for everything .. we forget that He is the Almight God .. the One we should fear and love and cherish. It is amazing that He is such a merciful and forgiving God or else there will not be anyone left on earth if He were to start passing out judgement on the spot.
I realized that somtimes God allows us to go through difficult time so that we can support, encourage and stand along side someone who is going through the same difficult times. It makes us more sensitive and compassionate towards the fellow traveler in this journey called life. We all need one another. We all need a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on once in awhile. The worst thing we can do is to shut everyone out.
This picture was taken during Chinese New Year when I get to meet my niece from Thailand once a year. I am planning to travel to Thailand next year ... too broke this year after moving into my new house in Kota Kemuning. So everything put on hold though I did manage to go to Hong Kong earlier this year.
