沙漠 Desert

听到沙漠,你会想到什么?
很炎热?干燥?风沙滚滚?不舒服的感觉。。。
When you hear the mentioning of desert, what would you think of?
Scorching heat? Dryness? Sand and dust everywhere? Not a very comfortable feeling…

DSC03773

我相信住在沙漠一定很辛苦,但给我们这些游客,就会大惊小怪,急着拍照片留念,然后再急忙找个阴凉处躲避强烈的太阳,几分钟都受不了。。。旅行车里的冷气真的是奢侈享受。
I believe it must be very tough to live in the desert, but for us tourists, we were like very excited and thrilled and in a hurry to take photos, but after that in a hurry to look for a cool shelter from the scorching sun, could not even stand a few minutes… the air-conditioner in the tour coach was such a luxury.

所以,华语经典歌有一首叫“热情沙漠”。。。唱着“我的热情好像一盆火,燃烧了整个沙漠”。。。感觉这个热情一定叫人很难受,哈哈。。。
A classic Chinese song sings “my passion and love is like the fire burning up the entire desert”… feels like a very uncomfortable passion to me, haha!

DSC03780

但是再炎热、干燥、不舒服,沙漠也还是有它独特的地方,也有它的美丽和用处。。。
至少它让我们这热带雨林来的游客很开心和赞赏!
But no matter how hot, dry or uncomfortable it is, the desert still has its uniqueness, beauty and usefulness…
At least it makes tourists from the tropical rainforests like us very happy and impressed!

无法想像当初以色列人如何能在沙漠旷野漂流与生存四十年,上帝如何保守和供应给他们!神真的是又信实、又真实!
所以,神既然在那么恶劣的环境都能够照顾和赐福当时那超过百万人的百姓,更何况今天的你和我呢?
I cannot imagine how the Israelites could wander and survive in the desert wilderness for forty years, how God protected and provided for them! God is indeed very faithful and very true!
So if God could take care of and bless more than a million of His people then in such a hostile environment, all the more He could do the same for you and I today!

DSC04255

因此,如果你现在正在处于一个艰难,仿佛走投无路的状况或环境,记得来到上帝面前歇一歇脚,再仰望祂的真实、信实和伟大!
Therefore, if you are currently in a very difficult and hopeless situation or condition, remember to come to God to rest and once again look upon His reality, faithfulness and greatness!

DSC04270

只要你坚持相信,祂答应你必为你在旷野开道路,在沙漠开江河!
As long as you persevere in believing, He has promised to make a way in the desert and streams in the wilderness for you!

就是喜歡~ Simply like them~

DSC06892

人的品味就是很奇怪,有些东西你很喜欢,别人就不喜欢;有些你不喜欢,别人偏偏又很喜欢。这些可以是服装、音乐、图画、食物。。。什么都可以!我想这样也好,很公平,就是说每样东西都有人欣赏。

People’s tastes are just so strange, certain things you may like so much but others just do not, and there are things that you just do not like while others do. It can be fashion, music, art, food… or just anything! Guess this is good for in this way everything can find someone who admires it.

DSC06893

其实,对自己,我们也有我们喜欢的某部分或某方面,也有我们很不喜欢的部分,所以才会感觉有时候很喜欢自己,有时候也会很讨厌自己!人就是这样矛盾,这样复杂和这样麻烦。

In fact, with regard ourselves, there are areas that we like and parts that we do not like about ourselves too. That is why sometimes we seem to love ourselves a lot and at times we seem to hate ourselves! Such is the irony of a human being, very complicated and troublesome.

DSC_0504

就比如我本身,拍了很多照片,有些是同地点和时间拍的,但就有一些我超喜欢,和一些我都不想再看一次的。这里放的一些照片就我很喜欢的,那一次旅行拍的也不见得我全部都喜欢。原因到底是什么?服装?姿势?角度?摄影技术,还是什么?

For example myself, I have taken so many photos, some were taken at the same place and time and yet there would be some that I really like and some that I do not even want to have a second look. The photos in this post are those that I really like, but there are also those taken during the same trip which I do not like at all. What is the reason? The clothes I wore? The pose? The angle? Photographing skill? Or what?

DSC06897

总之,事实是,我们之所以会喜欢自己的一些照片也只有一个原因,就是觉得自己在照片里拍得很好看或顺眼;有时别人不认为我们也不管,自己喜欢就好,哈哈!其实会欣赏自己总好过看不起自己,你说是吧?

All things said, the truth is, there is only one reason why we like some of our own photos, that is we think we look really nice or pleasant in those photos. Sometimes we would not even care if others think the same, as long as we like them ourselves, haha! Actually, to be able to admire ourselves is any time better than despising ourselves, do you not think so?

DSC06913

有些照片很好看或顺眼,不管是由于角度或摄影技术等等,也只说明了一件事,即:从某个角度或眼光来看,我们都会有好看的时候。原来我们都有优点,我们都有价值,都能够被人欣赏。如果人能永远就用那角度或眼光来看我们,就会一直很欣赏和看我们很顺眼,那不知有多好。。。可是事实并不如此,人反而很常用严厉、无情和批判性眼光互相看待,所以世界才会有那么多的冲突与伤害。

Some photographs are very nice or pleasant, whether due to angles or photographing skills, can only reveal one thing, that is: from a certain angle or perspective, we all have moments when we look good. We all actually do have our good points, we all have some values and can be admired by people. If only people can always look at us from that angle or perspective, then they would always admire or see us as pleasant, that would be so good… However, that is not the truth, people instead often use very stringent, cold and critical eyes to view each other, that is why this world is full of conflicts and hurts.

DSC_0698

但让我们最安慰的是,天父始终都会用慈爱的眼光看我们,始终看我们都是祂宝贝可爱的孩子。如果我们心里面也有越多天父的爱,我们也会用天父的眼光,如此充满慈爱怜悯的彼此看待了。

But the most comforting is, our Heavenly Father will always look at us with eyes of loving-kindness, we will always be precious and adorable children in His eyes. If our hearts have more of our Father’s love, we would also have the Father’s eyes and would look at each other with loving-kindness and mercy as well.

如果有這麼一條河。。。 If there is such a river…

DSC_9217

如果有这么一条河,河水能洗去罪恶,你所沾染的肮脏污秽,都可以让这河水为你洗去,你会不会四处去寻找这条河?
If there is such a river, the water can wash away all your sins; all your filth and dirt you have been contaminated with can be taken away by the river, would you go everywhere to search for this river?

DSC04814

如果有这么一条河,河水能把你的过去、你的羞愧、你的遗憾、你的后悔。。。都冲走,你会不会飞奔去寻找这条河?
If there is such a river, the water can wash away all your shame, remorse and regrets… would you run to look for this river?

1375706_699440606753058_994609787_n

如果有这么一条河,河水能让你全然洁净,重新来过,前路充满光明,你会不会马上跃进河里,把自己全然更新?
If there is such a river, the water can cleanse you totally, give you a brand new start, and brighten up your journey ahead, would you immediately jump into the river to renew yourself?

DSC05567

然而当你找到这条河时,若它看起来不如你所想像,感觉不是你所幻想,或某种原因使你排斥、动摇,你会不会就掉头离开,就此放弃,而不去给自己一个翻转的机会。。。?However when you have found this river but if it does not appear as what you have expected or does not feel as you have imagined, or for some reason it causes you reject or be shaken, would you just turn and go away and give up, not giving yourself a chance to be transformed…?

DSC_9228

事实上这么一条河谁不要?事实上这么一条河也存在;事实上很多人一找到这条河也无法接受,很快就掉头走掉。。。
The truth is who would not want such a river? The truth is such a river does exist, and the truth is once many people find this river, they would not be able to accept it and they would quickly turn and just walk away…

DSC04773

这么一条河就是耶稣圣灵的河,在这河里你可以重生、被赦免、被洁净、被更新。。。只要你敞开你的心相信和接受,这么一条河就会涌进你心灵里,苏醒你的灵。。。
Such a river is the river of the Holy Spirit of Jesus, in this river you can be born again, forgiven, cleansed, renewed… as long as you open up your heart to believe and receive, this river will flow into your heart and soul and restore your spirit….

我吉他彈得不好 I do not play the guitar well

image_6

我吉他弹得不好 - 这句话其实是多余的!因为凡是会弹吉他,听过我弹吉他的人,不用说他们也知道我吉他弹得不好;但是这句话还是要说出来,因为很多不会弹吉他又不太会音乐的人,被我的外表和装出来的样式骗了,看以上的照片就知道我讲什么了,哈哈哈!

但事实上,我也没有想要骗人啦!只是我弹的时候很专注和认真(怕弹错),所以看起来才好像很会的样子。。。再看下面一张,是不是很认真?

I do not play the guitar well – this sentence is actually quite redundant! Because whoever knows how to play the guitar and has heard me play would know without being told that I do not play well. However, I must still say this out for many who do not know how to play the guitar and do not know music well have been “deceived” by my appearance and “act”. You would know what I mean by looking at the above photo. Hahaha!

But honestly I do not intend to “deceive” anyone! It is just that I look very focussed and serious when I play (scared of making mistakes), that is why I look as though I can play well…
See the photo below, do I not look very serious?

image_3

怎么说吉他弹得不好呢?原因是手指按得不够力,所以出来的声音不够清脆好听;有一些和弦是需要一根手指按住六条线的,手指不够力就要借助 capo (音像福建话“鸡婆”),就是上图靠近我左手的小道具。如果没有 capo,有些歌我就会没办法弹或会弹得很难听了!

But why do I say I do not play the guitar well? Reason being my fingers do not press hard enough, so the sound that comes out does not sound that clear and nice. Some chords need you to press all six strings with one finger, and if your finger is not strong enough, you would need the help of the capo (sounds like the Hokkien word for busybodies – “kepo”). It is that little instrument near my left hand in the above photo. Without the capo, I will not be able to play some songs, or it will not sound nice when I play!

image_2

早期“出道”或刚出来诗歌服事时很常都会自弹自唱,因为唱累了就可以缩短或尽快停,唱不上可以把调调低等等。。。可是后来要背的歌越来越多,和弦越来越复杂,技巧有限,再加上出门带把吉他也挺不方便的,渐渐的就用伴奏带比较多了。

When I first started going out to sing or serve in songs, I very often played the guitar myself because if I felt tired, I could shorten the song and stop faster, or when the song was too high, I could lower the key etc…. but towards the end, there were more and more songs to memorize, the chords were getting more and more complicated, my skill was limited, coupled with the inconvenience to bring a guitar while travelling, I began to use the minus-ones or soundtracks more.

P9031460

你可能说,那为什么不要努力把吉他练好?
你以为我不想啊?有些人没天分就没天分啊,好不好?我吉他都弹了三十年了还是这个水准,你还要我怎样?
再加上,现在的我那么忙碌,可怜我一下吧。。。

You may say, why do I not work hard to practise my skill well then?
You think I do not wish too? Some people just do not have the talent, ok? I have played the guitar for thirty years and still stuck at this level, what more do you require of me?
Plus right now I am really super busy, so do have mercy on me…

image_1

那你可能又要问另一个问题:既然我吉他弹得不好,那我是怎么写歌的?
啊哈!奇妙就是奇妙在这里!
明明技巧就不好,明明只会基本的和弦,却也能创作出好几百首诗歌!这不是神的恩典是什么?这不是神迹是什么?
所以我说,我们这一生,决定你成功与否的不是你的背景或你拥有多少,而是你信靠和仰赖那全能的上帝多少~

Then you may want to ask another question:
Since I do not play the guitar well, how then do I write songs?
Ah ha! This is the amazing part!
Yes, obviously my skill is not good, and yes, obviously I only know the basic chords, and yet I could write hundreds of songs! If this is not God’s grace, tell me what is it? If this is not a miracle, tell me what is it?

So I say, in our lives, the deciding factor of our success does not lie with our background or how much we have, it depends on how much we trust and rely on the Almighty God~

我欣賞這女孩 I admire this girl

DSC06094

第一次看她跳舞,表現很不錯,很吸睛。
後來從她父親口中得知她沒跳舞經驗,但因被選中事奉,所以她很認真的練習,她很看中服事神的機會。
我欣賞這女孩!

我注意到當晚她父母/全家都沒來,才想到她父親有通知我,因之前不知道有佈道會,所以已買了全家出門旅行的機票。
父親讓她自己選擇,她選擇留下來,因為她很珍惜這次能夠事奉神的機會。
我欣賞這女孩!

她父親又告訴我,其實這旅行是特別為了她,因為她剛考完極大壓力的高中考試,父母要帶她去玩,讓她輕鬆一下。
然而她選擇留下,因為她不要失去這個服事神的機會。
我欣賞這女孩!

我想也是因為她的單純、努力、用心和付出,讓我當晚特別注意到她吧?
說真的,我也欣賞她的父母,因為不是每個父母會高興她這樣的選擇。。。

 

_MG_2154

Saw her dance for the first time, she did well, quite a centre of attraction.
Later I found out from her father she does not have dance experience, but because she was selected to serve, so she practised really seriously. She really takes the opportunity to serve God very seriously.
I admire this girl!

I noticed her parents/family did not come that night, then I remembered her father did inform me as he did not know there was going to be an evangelistic concert earlier, he had already bought the air tickets for the whole family to go for a vacation.
The father let her choose, she chose to stay back because she really treasured this opportunity to serve God this time.
I admire this girl.

The father told me too, this holiday was actually planned specially for her. Because she has just completed her very stressful SPM (senior high school) examination, so the parents want to bring her out to have fun and relax.
However, she chose to stay back because she did not want to miss this opportunity to serve God.
I admire this girl!

I believe it is also because of her innocence, hard work, effort and sacrifice that I would specially notice her that night.
Honestly, I admire her parents too as not every parent would be so happy about the decision she had made…

祝福還是包袱? Blessing or burden?

這世界的東西,就跟人一樣,化妝了有時候一時看不出真相,真假難分;可是日子久了就比較看得出來了,所以不要急促下定論,搞不好把好人和壞人顛倒,祝福和包袱也搞亂。。。

Things of this world are just like human beings at times, once disguised or putting on make-up, you cannot really tell the originality immediately, hard to discern what is real or fake. However, as time goes by, it becomes easier to distinguish, so we must not be hasty to conclude as we might mistake and switch the good people from the bad, or confuse blessings from burdens…

 

PhotoShake

 

寫這個,我是有感而發。。。
因為我昨天才去處理掉一個本來是應該帶給我好處的“祝福”,可是後來這“祝福”對我來說卻變成一個壓力和包袱;這也讓我聯想到我們人生都常常面對這種狀況與抉擇。。。

I am writing this as inspired by my own encounter…
That is because yesterday I have just gone to settle some “blessing” that was supposedly to bring me some benefits, but this “blessing” later became a pressure and burden for me instead. It caused me to relate to the many situations and dilemma we have to face in life ever so often…

 

_PTR2593-1

 

其實我去解決的也不是甚麼大件事,也只不過是再平常不過的銀行戶頭和信用卡。。。
只因為推銷員的口才或朋友的介紹,我們很常就開了一些帶給我們很多“好處”的戶頭,或使用很多“好服務‘的信用卡。事實上,我是沒需要用到,只是被所謂的”祝福“吸引,人自然”貪小便宜“的心理作祟,就也接受了這些”好服務“。結果是,很正常的每個月收到提醒你這個、提醒你那個的提醒信,而我又是屬於那種拖欠人幾塊錢都會很不舒服和沒平安的人,所以這些銀行的提醒信對我來說是一個壓力和負擔。

最後我就狠下心腸,決定去把戶頭和服務關閉;但如同所預料的,服務職員又會讓你覺得你的決定會讓你失去”祝福“,或又介紹另一個”更好的祝福“給你!可是,我已經下定決心,不要就是不要了!
從銀行出來時,我感覺放下心頭大石,輕鬆無比,呵呵呵~

Actually what I went to settle was not any severe matter, it was just something so ordinary as a bank account and credit cards facilities…
Due to the good sales technique of the promoter or recommendation by some friends, we quite often opened some accounts with a lot of “benefits”, or started using some credit cards with a lot of “good services”. In actual fact, I had no need of such, but I was attracted by the so-called “blessings” and due to our human nature of “wanting to take advantage of some benefits”, I accepted those “good services”. Consequently, as in very normal, I received reminding letters reminding you of this and that every month, and I am that type of person who feels uneasy and not at rest even if I owe someone just a few dollars, so the reminding letter from the bank was to me a pressure and burden.

Finally, I determined in my heart to go and close my account and facilities. However, as expected, the servicing officer would make you feel your decision was causing you to lose some “blessings” or start introducing another “greater blessing” to you! But I have already made m firm decision, no means no!
As I emerged from the bank, I felt a heavy burden lifted from my chest, I was so free and relaxed, hehehe~

你可能覺得我很小題大做,大驚小怪,那麼平常的事也把它當成那麼嚴重;但事實是,我們生活當中就是有那麼多小小的事沒解決,後來累積起來就越來越沉重,無形中成為每天的煩惱和壓力,最後就影響我們的情緒和甚至身體健康。。。

May be you think I am making a mountain out of a molehill or over-exaggerating as you think this is such a simple and ordinary matter, but I treated as if it was so serious; but the truth is, our daily living is full so many unresolved tiny little things that become heavier and heavier as they accumulate, and unconsciously they become our daily worries and stress and eventually affecting our emotional and even physical health…

 

AlbumCover1600x1600

 

我改天還有一些例子可以跟你分享,甚麼是變成包袱的“祝福”或好處。。。改天也要跟你分享,相反的,看似包袱的,結果卻是帶來大祝福和好處。。。
你本身有這種經歷和例子可以分享嗎。。。?

I will share with you again some other day some other examples of “blessings or benefits” that end up becoming a burden… and I would also want to share with you something in reverse, that is the seemingly “burden” that ultimately brings great blessings and benefits…
Do you have such personal experiences and examples to share as well…?

心情。。。 Mood…

DSC06464

心情 - 甚麼是心情?就是心裡的感覺和情緒吧?
到底甚麼影響我們心情好還是壞?
從生理到心理,從環境到遭遇,從人際到東西。。。仿佛很多東西都可以影響一個人的心情。。。

Mood – what is it exactly? It is that emotion or feeling in your heart I guess?
What can affect our mood to be good or bad?
From biological to psychological, from environment to encounter, from human to things… it seems there are many things that can influence a person’s mood…

 

DSC03780

一個美麗的風景、舒服的環境、自己喜歡的地方。。。都可以讓人有好心情。。。

A beautiful scenery, comfortable environment, and a place that you like… can all give a person good mood…

 

1375706_699440606753058_994609787_n

適當的休息、可口美味的飲食、我們喜悅的禮物、舒暢人心的好消息與故事。。。

Good and proper rest, tasty and delicious food and drinks, gifts that we delight in, good news and stories…

 

DSC04815

一個關心的問候、一個友善的笑容、一個意外的祝福、一個友好的陪伴。。。

A caring greeting and concern, a friendly smile, an unexpected blessing, the company of a good friend…

 

DSC_0698

其實很多東西都可以讓人有好心情,可是我們偏偏喜歡專注在破壞我們心情的事務上;更莫明其妙的,有時候一睡醒,都還沒甚麼事情發生,就已經壞心情了!

Actually many things can give us good mood but the trouble is, we tend to like to focus on things that spoil our mood; what is even more puzzling, sometimes upon waking up and even before anything happens, we are already in a bad mood!

 

DSC_0504

多年前,我也常很苦惱自己每早上醒來就心情不好的狀況,尤其是在大學時代。我也常常禱告求上帝幫助我及把我從這爛心情的問題釋放出來。。。

Many years back, I was often very disturbed by my upon-waking-up-bad-mood each morning, especially during my university years. I often prayed to God to help me and set me free from this lousy mood problem too…

 

DSC_9228

然後,不知曾幾何時,在我還沒察覺的情形之下,這問題已消失的無影無蹤!
我相信最大的原因就是不斷讓聖靈充滿。。。
我們的神是喜樂的神,如果祂的靈不斷充滿我們的心,我們怎麼能持續有壞心情呢?你說這有沒有道理?呵呵~

Then, I do not even remember or realize since when, this problem has disappeared and is gone a long time!
I believe the biggest reason is to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit…
Our God is a joyful God, so if His Spirit is always filling our hearts, then how can our hearts remain in a bad mood all the time? Does not this make sense to you? Haha~

 

DSC_9227

 

所以,只要又開始感覺心情不好,就要趕快開口禱告,求聖靈再來充滿,很快的就會雨過天晴,心情又漸漸變好了。。。
鼓勵你不妨也試試看。。。上帝賜福你~

Therefore, whenever I start to feel a bad mood rising, I will quickly open my mouth to pray and ask for the Holy Spirit to fill me, and very soon the sunlight will shine through the dark clouds, and my mood will improve again…
I encourage you to try this too… God bless you~

皇族身份 Royal blood

你知道自己是誰嗎?你知道你的身份有多尊貴嗎?你知道仇敵、惡者、魔鬼很怕你嗎?

Do you know who you are? Do you know how honourable your identity is? Do you know the enemy, the evil one, the devil is very afraid of you?

photo 2

那天看了一部電影,事實是,類似這樣題材的故事很多:即,公主或王子化裝成平民到街上走或玩,當中碰見無賴要找麻煩或欺負。正當就要被打或傷害的時候,無賴們突然害怕或跪下來求饒。原來公主/王子背後出現一群國王派來保護他的軍兵,無賴們才知道公主/王子的身份,無不投降或逃跑。。。

Watched a certain movie that day, the truth is, such story line is very common: that is, a princess/prince disguised as a commoner and went out to the street. In the midst of that, some hooligans wanted to stir up trouble or bully. Just when the princess/prince was about to be hurt or attacked, suddenly the hooligans became afraid and knelt for forgiveness. The fact was an army sent by the king to protect the princess/prince appeared behind the princess/prince, only then did the hooligans realize the identity of the princess/prince. They would either surrender or skitter away…

photo 3

 

其實,我們就是那公主/王子,我們的天父就是萬王之王,時刻都會看顧、保守、拯救我們。我們只要知道自己的身份,也常活在神的保守之下,我們的一生都會很平安。不要愚昧的遠離神,拒絕祂的愛和保護,這世界有太多邪惡的事,我們必須時常禱告、敬拜、親近神;這樣,一路想要攻擊我們的仇敵或惡者都要跪下和退去了!

We are actually that princess/prince, our Father God is the King of kings, He will take care, protect and save us. All we need is to know our identity and live under His protection, then we shall have peace all our lives. Do not be so foolish as to leave God or refuse His love and protection. There are too many evils in this world, so we need to constantly pray, worship and draw near to God. In that way, the enemies or evil ones that come to attack us along the way will have to kneel or flee!

無 不 口 稱 耶 穌 基 督 為 主 , 使 榮 耀 歸 與 父 神 。” ~腓立比書2:9-11~

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.” ~ Philippians 2:9-11~

最不公平的事 The most unfair thing

有時候,被人誤會、被人錯怪,我們覺得很不公平,很生氣。。。
有時候,被人出賣、被人背叛,我們覺得很不公平,很無理。。。

At times, we are misunderstood, or being blamed wrongly, we feel it is very unfair, and we feel very angry…At times, we are being betrayed, or being back-stabbed, we feel it is very unfair, and we feel it is so unreasonable…

DSC_2751

 

有時候,對的被講到是錯的,錯的被講到是對的,我們覺得很不公平,很生氣。。。
有時候,好人被當成是壞人,壞人被當成是好人,我們覺得很不公平,很無理。。。

At times, what is right is being twisted to become wrong, and what is wrong is being promoted as right, we feel it is very unfair, and we feel very angry…
At times, good people are being treated as wicked, and the wicked are being treated as the good, we feel it is very unfair, we feel it is so unreasonable…

DSC_2113

有時候,壞人橫行霸道,好人無奈被壓,我們覺得很不公平,很生氣。。。
有時候,有錢人欺壓窮人,窮人求助無門,我們覺得很不公平,很無理。。。

At times, the wicked do as they like, and the righteous are being oppressed, we feel it is very unfair, we feel very angry…
At times, the rich oppress the poor, and the poor cannot find help anywhere, we feel it is very unfair, we feel it is so unreasonable…

DSC_2323

有時候和有時候,這世界還有很多又很多事情讓我們覺得很不公平,很生氣,很無理。。。
數不盡、數不清。。。
但永遠都不要忘記,這些耶穌都經歷過,這條路祂走過。。。
全世界最不公平的事,莫過於耶穌被釘十字架。。。
不要以為上帝會忘記,不要以為上帝會置之不理;暫時但必須的黑暗,並不表示因此就沒有黎明。。。

At times and at times, this world has so many and so many things that we feel are so unfair, and we feel so angry and feel everything is so unreasonable…
Endless and countless…
But do not ever forget, Jesus has experienced all these, and He has walked this path…
The most unfair thing in this world will always be Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross…
Do not think that God will forget, do not think that God will ignore; temporary but necessary darkness does not therefore mean dawn is not coming…

DSC_1902

我就是如此常常提醒自己,常常如此被鼓勵。。。

And this is how I always remind myself, and this is how I am always encouraged…

DSC_2826

虚惊一场! A false alarm!

有时候我们真的会比较负面,发生一件事情,都还不知道真相,就先往不好或最坏的方面去想。。。
后来发现事实都不是如此,真是白担心一场!更糟糕的是,有时候还误会人,乱生气一场,真的是很笨!

Sometimes we tend to be more negative, when something happens, even before knowing the truth, we start thinking the worse or something bad…Then we discover the fact that is otherwise, really worrying for nothing! What is worse, sometimes we even misunderstand others and get angry with them wrongly, it is really silly!

DSC_6440

但的确有时候事情本来是负面的,上帝却很奇妙的把它转为正面,让我们看到祂是独行奇事的神,我经历了这样的神迹蛮多次。。。
现在回想一些曾经发生过的,还真是千钧一发,不可思议!

But indeed sometimes it can be a truly negative thing but God amazingly turns it to become positive, to show us He is a miracle-working God. I personally have experienced this kind of miracles numerous times…
As I recall certain incidents that happened before, the apparent “narrow escape” a few times were really unimaginable!

DSC_6446

这一次又经历了一个意想不到的好事。。。
收到一个我不想收、不想碰、不想开的东西,我马上就开始思想该如何丢掉这东西,因为我想象其来源会让我很不舒服。。。但结果却是相反的!
原来是我喜欢的东西,来源叫我很安慰感动。。。

I experienced something good again this time something I did not expect…
I received something I did not want to receive, did not want to touch and did not want to open, my mind immediately started thinking as to how to get rid of it because I imagined the source would make me very uncomfortable… but it turned out otherwise!
It was actually something I like and the source was very comforting and touching…

DSC_6447

现在想起来也真好笑,我还差点把它送给别人,甚至丢掉!哈哈!
还好收到消息的匿名人士,急忙传简讯给我说东西是来自它!我真的是万万都没想到是他!
真是虚惊变惊喜!上帝真的很幽默,也很爱我,我那么胡乱想象,祂仍然赐福我,我真的是不配!

It is really funny as I think about it now, I almost gave the thing to others or even threw it away! Haha!
Just as well the “mysterious” person heard about that and quickly sent a text message to me to tell me the thing was from him! I really did not have the slightest thought that it could come from him!
This is really a false alarm that turns into a pleasant surprise! God is truly humourous, and He loves me so much too, knowing how I would simply imagine the worst and yet He still blesses me, I am really so undeserving!
