Stephen's prayer...

Some time ago, I was confused by something, and was in a dazed for many weeks. But one thing I know for sure, GOD, is just a prayer away.

In my prayer, I have asked GOD for answers. and he commanded me to do one thing that I am most unwilling to do. He have answered my prayer, blessing one of my sister-in-christ that the transaction of selling goes smooth, the anointing to have an idea, and a good and forgiving boss, a good assisting colleagues, and a friendly environment.

Then, GOD wants me to leave one thing behind. LORd Jesus christ have said:" How hard is for the rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. the Camel can pass easily through the eye of the needle than a man to do it.

I did not. because I was blinded, and I knew it. He have sent two solutions for me, to make up for it, I did not obeyed. I am foolish to hold on to it. I am really touched when I feels it one day through prayer. But I was confused.

Ashamed, I stopped going to City Harvest Church. I cannot face up to him, who have helped me so much, and I have failed him badly. Jean is right, without a cg, it is really a hard route walking along with Christ.

I have joined four cg during the service before. Sister Jean, Sister Prisc, Brother Joshua, Brother Matthews. I could not find my root in any of the cg. But I truly appreciate their invitation to the cg even though it is only for service, and not fellowship. Time is against me all the time. Thank you all for your kindness and efforts rendered to me during the services and prayer's meeting.

I am really ashamed to face up to him right now, because I have failed him badly.


The LORd's Voice

A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study. The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord's voice.The young man couldn't help but wonder, "Does God still speak to people?"After service he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they discussed the message.Several different ones talked about how God had led them in different ways.

It was about ten o'clockwhen the young man started driving home.
Sitting in his car, he just began to pray, "God...If you still speak to people speak to me I will listen. I will do my best to obey."As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought to stop and buy a gallon of milk.
He shook his head and said out loud, "God is that you?" He didn't get a reply and started on toward home.

But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk. The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't recognize the voice of God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli."Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk."

It didn't seem like too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk. He stopped andpurchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home. As he passed Seventh Street, he again felt the urge, "Turn Down that street."This is crazy he thought and drove on past the intersection.Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street.
At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh.Half jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will".He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop. He pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in semi commercial area of town. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst ofneighborhoods either.

The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the people were already in bed. Again, he sensed something, "Go and give the milk to the people in the house across the street." The young man looked at the house. It was dark and it looked like the people were either gone or they were already asleep.

He started to open the door and then sat back in the car seat. "Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they are going to be mad and I will look stupid." Again, he felt like he should go and give the milk. Finally, he opened the door, "Okay God, if this is you, I will go to thedoor and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look like a crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for somethingbut if they don't answer right away, I am out of here."He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise inside. A man's voice yelled out, "Who is it? What do you want?"

Then the door opened before the young man could get away.The man was standing there in his jeans and T- shirt. He looked like he just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his faceand he didn't seem too happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep. "What is it?"
The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, "Here, I brought this for you." The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway. Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen.

The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying. The man had tears streaming down his face. The man began speaking and half crying, "We were just praying. We had some big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn't have any milk for our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some milk.
His wife in the kitchen yelled out, "I ask him to send an Angel with some. Are you an Angel?"
The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and put in the man's hand. He turned and walked back toward his car and the tears were streaming down his face. He knew that God still answers prayers.
