Silence

My last entry was May 19, today it’s 24.

4 days of silence. Not good. I wanted to use this diary to diary down my spiritual walk with Christ. Not that physically I have not been actived, been doing my quiet time with my Lord with my Son nightly where possible, else my wife will take over, thank God.  This diary is a good reminder for me, I’m a forgetful person. God knows too.

22 May brought Samuel to Yishun Children ministry together with my wife. Samuel enjoyed himself thorougly. Feasting on God’s word. He missed the Art and Craft session though. 22 May was also a significant day for Samuel. He had been asking about born again and what is to be a true Christian. That was also the day he dedicated himself to Jesus. He confessed that he is a sinner, and wants to follow Jesus. Praise God! While we all know this does not happen once in a life time, but rather it is a journey. However, that initial first act of commitment is important, and to live it through. 22 May is also a significant date. Surprisingly, it coincides with 22 April, the day my parents-in-law likewise committed themselves to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. May 22 too was the day we had an informal natural Praise session with Sameul, Amy, Isaac, and Mel in the room. It was wonderful as all gathered to sing praises go God. Should do it again.

May April 22 2010. Looks like God knows I’ve got a poor memory and grouped the dates together eh? 🙂

I always enjoyed using marriage as an example. Marriage is that initial commitment to a lifetime journey together with your spouse. From thence on, it is pronounced husband and wife. Similar to a spiritual life, that initial prayer and committment seperates that person from the world, henceforth known as a Child of God. Just as a married couple, now known as husband and wife. See the change in status? The status has been changed. This is called Santification. Put aside. Seperated. However, can this santification be broken? Humanly speaking yes. In the eyes of God, no. It is broken.

Sad isn’t it?

Mark 10:8-9 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Can one flesh be speperated from each other? No. If Yes? It’s broken. So why were divorces allowed to happened?

Matthew 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

Genesis 2:23-24 24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Silence for 4 days. Today FB Meyer Homily is on Psalm 137. http://preceptaustin.org/psalms-f_b_meyer.htm I tend to do my quiet time in the office now as I arrived very early on M,W,F. Today was interesting. Just as I was about to be distracted, somehow my eyes was pulled back to FB Meyer article.

“You have ceased singing lately. The joy of your religious life has vanished. You pass through the old routine, but without the exhilaration of former days. Can you not tell the reason? It is not because your circumstances are depressed, though they may be; for Paul and Silas sang praises to God in their prison. Is not disobedience at the root of your songlessness? You have allowed some little rift to come within the lute of your life, which has been slowly widening, and now threatens to silence all. And you never will be able to resume that song until you have put away the evil of your doing, and have returned from the land of the enemy.”
