The Journey: Witness 9.8.2018

Father and son planting tree

Do you believe that God will give us mercy? Do you believe this mercy that He freely gives is a witness that we have, personally? Have you ever shared your witness of this mercy to others?

Today I went to my parents’ place to have dinner. When I arrived at 6:30pm, my mum was cooking the food. The TV was switched on, and my father was watching a Korean drama movie. After sitting on the chair for some five minutes, I soon felt tired. Very tired indeed. I then fell asleep. And for the next ten minutes, I was sleeping and had some dreams. And one of them was a nightmare. As a result, when the food was served and we sat on the dining table to eat, I was speechless, filled with pressure and fear. I was scared because of the dream and it made me feel very uncomfortable.

My father probably had noticed my uneasiness, and he then asked me: “Are you sleepy?” At the time when he asked me this question, my mind was nervous and edgy. I then answered his question: “Yes, I was tired, mostly because I had come back from going to a church to pray in the afternoon.” Then suddenly, after saying this, my mind was transformed from an abyss to a summit. I was filled with power and then I spoke and answered my parents’ talking with energy and enthusiasm. And for the rest of the time with my parents, I just felt strong and marvelous.

Reflecting on today’s happenings, I became powerful and enthusiastic, even when I was in a terrible mindset, when I talked about a prayer today. This can be considered as the SUPPORT that I had mentioned in many of my previous blog posts. And today I believe God had led me to show my witness, that is the SUPPORT, to my parents. Whether God had purposely made me falling asleep and gave me the SUPPORT when I talked about Him, was debatable. And I will leave you, my readers to draw your own conclusions.

However, one thing I am sure of is that I am proud to be a witness of the SUPPORT, in which He freely gives me as a mercy to mentally feel and share with other readers. And on this day today, He let me share the witness with my parents directly and physically. I think they probably may ask themselves in the coming days: “Why is there such a change in James’ way of thinking and speaking? He used to be an introvert and now he is strong with the power while talking. Is this what God has done to him?” And I hope that my physical sharing of this witness to my parents and the sharing of this witness in my blog can enlighten more people to know about God, and the big love and mercy that He gives us.
