十一月最後一天的禱告

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under 中文文章

今天是十一月的最後一天,日子過的好快,今年還有三十多天,就要結束了。
好渴望在這個冬季經歷聖靈的復興,看到神的榮耀來到這個家中。
這幾天活在“抓住應許,挑望信心,禱告等候”的日子裡,父神哪,
我們的盼望在乎你,除你以外,我們別無所求。
基督榮耀的盼望從這家中滿溢,叫人見到將榮耀歸給你。

每一天

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under 中文文章

每一天都有新的恩典可以倚靠,每一天都有新的憐憫從父神寶座前流出,因為每一天都是新開始。昨天是已過的回憶,明天是下一步的挑戰,但此刻是我可以活在光明中,是我可以拿來親近神,是我可以把握,珍惜的時刻,當我禱告,求父神給我智慧的心來數算日子,他賜下今天,給我做學習的機會。求父神幫助我,今天在小事上專心,忠心,幫助我的心今天來親近你。

the Only Gift

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

What does the Creator not have and what can a mortal man bring to his Maker that was not originated from the Giver? All the songs I could ever sing, all the playing I could ever do have limits. The breath I have and the moment I get to worship is a gift of life He has given me. But where can I find a motif that’s beautiful and moving enough to express thankfulness? Where is a phrase that’s close enough to touch upon the beauty of the Savior’s heart? The only gift I can offer, the one small “penny”, is my love. Though this love is not pure, is not holy, is not equal to what I would like to offer, I offer this love. Still, I come with all earthly filth and offer You this love birthed from a redeemed heart. Let me get closer, let me be refined by Your fire. Let me love You even more, even fuller. Let me love You even closer.

Internal War

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

I picked up a few good books to read recently. It feels like the good old days again. Over the Thanksgiving break I filled my days with studying, reading, meditating, praying and waring internal conflicts.
Every time I read A. W. Tozer’s book, I get this frustration – frustrated at my own shallow walk with God in comparison with Mr. Tozer’s. There are actual people in history that lived an aflame, aglow, vibrant life in God. As I read Mr. Tozer’s book, my soul is increasingly restless, longing for more. This tension of wanting more of God while living in the grind of daily life, this quest for truth, is occupying most of my thoughts during waking hours of my day. I really don’t want to settle for a superficial Christianity. My heart aches for something deeper.
Father I desire..

Thanksgiving

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

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day. I spent it with the people I love.
After twenty years, my favorite thing is still sitting by Charles and enjoying each other’s presence.
Last night Charles found some of his and my journals from old boxes. One journal was even dated back in 1987! So on Thanksgiving Night we read through our past and gave thanks to God for His guidance, His faithfulness and His love toward us in all the years. As I read through those entries, I was reminded again that God hears our feeble prayers.
Nothing is impossible. How great is His power at work within us.
Father I desire.. Continue to help us to live for what truly matters in Your perspective. Impart Your desire to our hearts. May we live to know You, and to bring glory to You.
I am forever grateful.

神掌權

Posted by: Karen Cheng  |  Filed under 中文文章

神掌權,在全地掌權,在此刻歷史中掌權,神以智慧,全能,力量掌權。
耶穌,你的作為完全,你的判斷公義,你的帶領正確,你的一切,是榮耀。你是天父完美的形象,真實無保留的榮耀,你是全地的喜悅,萬國的盼望,你是大能救贖者,將來的君王,有誰像你!

願你的國度今天確實的降臨在這國家,藉著愛你的百姓,讓生命的真光照亮在這土地上。願你發出救恩,願大群回轉歸向你,願今天是福音收割的日子,好叫你的心歡喜。
