Today I read about a fellow blogger’s acknowledgment of a loving relationship with God. Can you proudly tell everyone that you have a loving relationship with Him? At times when you occasionally do not feel the love of God, can you maintain your composure and admit that God’s best plan for you is in place?
God’s love for us is the biggest and best love that you can have in this world. Not only is it rewarding and satisfying, it is not a love that we can gain in this world. The love which is unconditional, and certainly not a transaction which is a normal phenomenon in our married adult’s life. However, I believe different people have different ways of feeling God’s love. For me, it is a reminder of my purpose and meaning of my life’s on earth: to work for and with God to achieve His will.
Somehow I always believe that working for and with God is one of the most important vocations in my life. Every time when I am in a down mode, whenever I am frustrated, and whenever I am about to lose faith, God will give me the feeling and the recognition of myself in His will, and tell me the following steps to work for and with Him, that is to do His will. Imagine when you are the son of a committing father, who comforts you when you have experienced a bad day in school and takes the effort to buy you a gift during this difficult period. This is what God has given me, every time and day when I am in a negative emotion, He will always give me a reassuring hug and give me a mental gift, the next minute, hour or day. He is telling me that, our love is not a transaction, and He will never leave me alone and will be there at the most critical moment. He will have a way to make me happy again, and His love is surely the best plan for me.
There should be times in our life in which we have doubts about God’s love during trials. Has God left me alone when I am sick with a disease? With the world laughing at me, has he abandoned me to face the world alone? For the previous five working days, I had felt God’s SUPPORT and Fighting Heart in these working mornings. However, I didn’t feel anything special today. Was he deserting me? No certainly not. He is always with me, whatever the difficult circumstances. And the fact that I didn’t feel anything special has a meaning, a wisdom that I cannot comprehend. The only way is to believe that it is God’s best plan for us. We just have to believe. And my frustration in the morning was rewarded with one of the best initial feelings while I was writing this blog in the afternoon. He gave me the strong feeling so that I could perform work for Him with love and caring although I was in difficult mental status. And today’s writing period was a time when I obviously felt a support when I was writing and has never happened before. And I believe this is another milestone for me. Will I feel the support when I write tomorrow? We will see.
I can proudly say that, whenever I am in a down mood and pressure that makes me worried, He will always, using His effort, to keep me afloat with various methods, and I strongly believe this is the best plan for me. I am starting to believe that I am at the happiest not because I am always facing an easy road ahead, but when every time I face difficulties in the narrow road ahead, He will “give me a lift”, by reminding me of his love and my role in His will.
If it is not the fact that I did not feel anything this morning, I would probably not have felt the love and encouragement when I was writing this blog post in the afternoon. His plan is really amazing. I felt His love, have you?
