Celebrating 46 Years of God’s Faithfulness
“ I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations ; I will sing of you among the peoples . For great is your love , reaching to the heavens ; Your faithfulness reaches to the skies . Be exalted , O God , above the heavens ; let your glory be over all the earth. “
Psalm 57 : 9-11
On Tuesday March 27, 2012 I will be celebrating my 46th birthday. How time flies. Just about thirty years ago I was in high school and seemingly that was not very long time ago. And fourteen years from now , I will be a senior citizen. So much years behind me, so much memories to cherish, some are good, still others are not that good. I had been through many tough times, through many difficulties, struggles, heartaches and emotional pains. Yet one thing is very remarkable about my experiences, that God has been faithful to see me through throughout all these ups and downs of my life.
I had been in physical ailments, I had been in distresses and many emergency calls. I have experienced glory moments and even dark days. Yet one thing remains remarkable that God is faithful to see me through throughout all these experiences. I am not a perfect Christian, I have many shortcomings, I have many failures. I have been impatient many times. But God has been merciful and compassionate in dealing with me. The greatest blessing I received in my 46 years of existence is the blessing of the new birth and salvation. I don’t think if there will be greater blessing than being a child of God and being heir of the Kingdom of God. It is one thing that made me truly happy in this life.It cannot be traded off for any material thing this world could give.
At 46, at midlife, and still single as of this time, I am still inspired to live life to the fullest knowing that God will see me through. I do have still struggles about marriage, I do still have a longing for a lifetime companion. But I do entrust those matters to God. God sees more clearly . One thing for sure He knows the best for me much more than I know the best for myself. I just trust His perfect wisdom completely. I just pray continually that He will send the right person, a man of God, a man after His heart who truly fears Him and will love me I am for what I am without reservation.
At 46, I have known deep loneliness, I have known chains of brokenness, disappointments and frustrations. I have known deep depression. Without the help of a loving God, I don’t know if I can still make it through. At 46, I have still great dreams in life. I have this gut to dream because I do know I have a great God. I stil dream of being able to publish 1000 hubs. I still dream of writing a book. I still dream of visiting Israel one day.
I have no much great success to show the world. I am just a simple ordinary person in this world. I have no much great stories to tell about myself. I have no much glories to parade. One thing only I am very thankful about my life, that I was chosen to be loved by the Great and Awesome God of the universe. And His love indeed is sufficient to make my life so beautiful and inspire me daily to live my life at its best. To be loved by God is a very great privilege in this life, it is much greater than being loved by a thousand men.
