在黑夜裡歌唱

唱歌常是因為心情。
心情快樂時想大聲呼喊,心裡難過時想落淚的歌,婚禮時聽到愛和盼望的樂曲,安息禮拜多用安慰的詩歌。
最近聽到一個講員教導,用歌唱來走過困境;不要只用音樂來襯托心情,要用音樂及歌聲來改變、影響環境。
在黑夜中唱出一條路來。

One thing I desire

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under English entries - 英文文章

When I feel His near presence, other things fade away. The real, sustaining presence of God often makes everything else dim. More and more I want to live this life for Him – a life that has right priorities in His eyes. A life that orbits more around Him and less around me.
One thing I desire.

true joy, no substitute

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under English entries - 英文文章

A couple of years ago I felt God impressed on my heart not to substitute real joy for entertainment. I started to pay attention to the two.
Finding entertainment is easy – turn on the TV, sit at a concert, or watch a good movie. Entertainment is often a click away.
To have real joy is a different thing. Life-giving joy comes from One Person. Lasting joy comes from being with Him.

Once again I hear His question this afternoon – am I looking for entertainment or looking for the One who gives me joy?!

兩個方向

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under 中文文章

關係有兩個方向,對方和我。
有一個關係是用不止盡的愛建造起來的:神和人的關係。
神用不止盡的愛來堆積這關係;同時,神喜歡我注重他,認同他。
有時我忘記,我帶給他的失落感是很真實的。

一個關係會經過不同的階段,有甜蜜期,有打拼期,有逆向,有順流,有曠野,也有高山。
我常和神說為什麼不弄簡單點,因為我實在軟弱;
但神說他要的是經過考驗,成熟堅定的愛。
他喜歡我在愛的各層面成長,活出成熟的愛(林前十三章四到八節)。

tired but determined

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under English entries - 英文文章, Music

Physically tired, swimming against the current today.
In and out of season, stay on the course.
I want to make progress even in weakness.
So with these baby steps, I walk towards You, Lord.
help me to look into Your eyes of Love.

“I want to stand in Your council
sit at Your table
to speak to You face to face
as a friend
I want to stand in Your fire
Where ever Your eyes fall
May You find me faithful to Your heart

Let me be found with a heart after You
May Your eyes find this heart loyal to You”

詩人的見證

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under 中文文章

〝我愛耶和華,因為他聽了我的聲音和我的懇求
他既向我側耳,我一生要求告他

耶和華有恩惠,有公義,我們的神以憐憫為懷
耶和華保護愚人,我落到卑微的地步,祂救了我

我的心哪,你要喜樂,因為耶和華用厚恩待你
主阿,你救了我的命,免了死亡,救我的眼,免了流淚,救我的腳,免了跌倒
我拿什麼報答耶和華向我所賜的一切厚恩?
我要舉起救恩的杯,稱謝你的名
我要以感謝為祭獻給你,我要在眾民面前,在耶和華殿的院內,在耶路撒冷當中,向耶和華還我的願
我要讚美耶和華〞

這是大衛的詩篇;也是我由心發出的感謝

“I Can’t Wait”

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under English entries - 英文文章, Music

I Can’t Wait

by Time Reimherr
copyrighted 2004 Timothy Reimherr/Forerunner Music

“There’s a place I’ve been, more real than what I’ve seen
You led me by the hand, into the
chambers of the King

Take me away, to the place that I never want to leave

I’ve tasted and I’ve known of a love that’s
better than wine
Come to me my Lord, only You can
satisfy

I can’t wait
for our wedding day to come
Let me see Your face, let me feel Your arms of love

I have been betrothed to the King above all kings
I am not my own and You’ve pledged
Yourself to me

Take me away, to the place that I never want to leave”
