Acceptance is the Key

A few weeks ago, a fellow church member lost her father.  The death of her loved one came so sudden that it shook most of us and me being her close friend, have cried in prayer asking God to help her overcome this tough situation.

I have visited the funeral home together with our fellow youth members and as we visited each night, we saw how sad she is. 

However, in the last night of the funeral service, our beloved Pastor quoted a verse coming from Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Although there were a lot of Bible verses that has been said that night, that particular verse made a huge impact in me.

I can do all things through Christ, the moment our Pastor said those words coming from the Bible, my church mate who just lost her dad lit up.  Her eyes glimmered with hope and tears started to fall in her eyes.

One of the reasons why she is sad is because she is not sure if her father received Jesus as his Savior, bus as we recalled the happenings before his death, there had been a time just a few weeks before he died that the Gospel has been presented to him and we saw him pray silently, in a corner, while hiding from us.

Even though there are things that we cannot control, like the death of a loved one, or you failing your grade and not being able to graduate, always remember that we can do all things through Christ.

Noting is impossible with God and if we allow Him to take our burdens, acceptance will surely follow.  For us to be able to find true happiness, we must accept God as our Lord and personal Saviour.

There will be challenges but whenever we five God everything, nothing can stop us from doing what is perfect in the sight of God.
