Creation Speaks

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

We were away for a family vacation last week. Most of our time was spent at the beach.
I love standing at the shore feeling the sand and watching the waves. Water always washes my soul in a special way. Growing up in Hawaii has permanently fashioned my heart with a longing. I love the deep blue color. I love the majestic view of the ocean. I love pondering and longing for that “one day” when I will be at the clear crystal sea of glass, seeing Jesus face to face for the first time for all eternity..
Creation speaks to my soul.

We also visited a butterfly world. It was absolutely amazing to see the varieties of butterflies – the colors, the patterns, the sizes, and the beautiful wings. What an amazing artistic Creator to leave His fingerprints all around us through little butterflies! A little fraction of His creativity gave us hours to enjoy!
Sometimes I wished our bodies can hear, see, and smell without earthly limit or imperfection. Imagine the sound, sight, and the fragrance that’s on-going before the Throne of God!

As creation speaks to my soul, I pray Crescendo Music will do likewise to many people. May He download His creativity through what we do. May our music give glory to the amazing Creator.

給予的心志

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under Women of Faith, 中文文章

繼續〝女性獨特性〞,我想分享另一個神給我們的禮物:給予。
女性天生有給予的傾向,而且是〝豪華式〞的不保留的給予。
在聖殿裡的寡婦,把他所有的全都奉獻。
馬利亞把他所有的家產,他的未來,及他的嫁妝,在一瞬間藉由一罐香膏全都傾到在耶穌腳前。
女先知亞拿,把他的一生(從二十幾歲到八十四歲)獻給神,在殿中禁食,禱告。

這些女性把他們所擁有的,他們的時間,他們的物質安全感都給予了,而結果是遇見耶穌!
神放〝給予〞在女性生命深處,當我們毫無保留的付出時,我們將遇見給予生命的主,我們的愛!

念念不忘

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under Women of Faith, 中文文章

女性有個〝念念不忘〞的習性,這是我們在寶座前的一個有能力的祕密習性: 為所愛的,我們能忍耐,能傾心如水,能竭力持守不放棄。
聖經裡的哈拿為例,他有個不能熄滅的盼望,想要個敬虔的兒子。他不想吃也不休息,直等到神垂聽他的心聲。之後,因著愛及信靠,他把這頭生的兒子留在神的殿中,學習神的同在及神的心意,他把薩母耳獻給神。因這一位女子的禱告,神賜給那個世代及兩位君王一位真先知。

我禱告在各地合神心意的女性們被興起,走進祈求,代禱的國度位子上,藉由許多母親性的禱告,我們改變我們的世代及君王。讓我們勇敢的在神面前傾心吐意!

改變歷史的一群

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under Women of Faith, 中文文章

神放在我心中一系列關於女性的分享,神同時藉此讓我開始明白女性在國度裡的呼召及產業。
神創造女性有很多獨一無二的特質。神使我們能生育,製造,懷抱生命。這物體世界是屬靈世界的鏡子。從聖經及歷史上,我們看到神使用女性,因禱告,先知性的智慧,及與神同行,他們在神國度被大大使用。
當神所愛的女性明白並勇敢站在神國度位子上,他能毫無保留的使用我們,神的心意能成為實體。這是我的禱告,也是我想將這些的分享寫下來的理由。

Sacred Heart of A Woman

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under English entries - 英文文章, Women of Faith

Following on my yesterday’s thought about women, today I want to share on another unique character of women’s heart – giving.
Women have an innate desire to give extravagantly.
The widow in the temple court gave ALL she had.
Mary gave her inheritance, her future, and her dowry all in a moment, in that jar of perfume poured out at Jesus’ feet.
Anna, a prophetess, gave her whole life – from mid twenty to eighty-four. She gave her whole life to the devotion of prayer and fasting in the temple of God.

In each of these examples, these women gave away all they had, their time, and their security. But in the exchange, they encountered Jesus! What an amazing thing – in our unreserved moment of giving, we encounter the Giver of life, our Love!

Women That Made A Difference

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under English entries - 英文文章, Women of Faith

God is putting on my heart a series of thoughts regarding women, and the unique calling and inheritance we have in Him.
There are many unique qualities God has given us females. We by nature give birth, produce and nurse life. The physical is a picture of spiritual. Women throughout the Bible and history have made incredible differences in the Kingdom of God through intercession, prophetic wisdom and intimacy with God. When we as women find confidence in our position in the Kingdom, He will use us to our full potential and His purpose will become reality. With that as my prayer, I want to share these thoughts gradually on this blog.

Women have a tendency to take things to heart. It’s actually a secret strength before the Throne of God – to keep pressing in, pouring out, and persevering before the One we love.
Take Hannah for example, she had a consuming desire to give birth to a godly son. She didn’t eat or rest until God heard her prayers. Then out of love and trust she gave this son up to be trained in His temple (God’s presence and God’s ways). The result is a true prophet for a generation and a voice for two kings.
I pray that the women of God across the globe will rise and take their rightful place of prayer and intercession. Through mothers’ prayers, we change our generations and kings. Let’s take courage in the access we have to make a difference!
