John 16:21

John 16: 21
A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.
This verse spoke to me today as I have been pondering about childbirth.  No, I am not pregnant at the moment but I have been gathering information as to whether I should go for natural or caesarean when my time comes.  I have to admit I have the fear of giving birth but I love children.  Therefore, giving birth to a child is something I hope that I'll have the privilege to go through.  Meanwhile, I have to pray to God faithfully about preparing Nat and I to be good parents.  Spoke to a church couple whom I look up to on Sunday.  Learned some tips there.  Disciplining my future children also means that I have to be disciplined.
:)  Will continue learning!
Love, Pam

Persecuted Christians

As I have written in my previous blog entry, I find it difficult to love our so called "enemies".  As I read about the persecuted Christians in other countries, I can't help but wonder, why can't I love my "enemies" in my comfortable circumstance.  I believe that my brothers and sisters in Christ who are in life-endangering situations will find it hard to love those who put their lives at stake but they must have really relied on the strength of the Lord to love these people.

Read about the Boko Haram.  Terrifying.  But the Lord is with His church.  Continue to persevere.  Christian friends, I encourage all of us to keep them in prayer.
