God hears

I read something great this morning and I really felt like sharing it with you:
"God's timing is not ours to command.  
If we do not start the fire with the first strike 
of our match, we must try again. 
God does hear our prayer
but He may not answer it at the precise time
we have appointed in our own minds.
Instead, He will reveal Himself to our seeking hearts,
 though not necessarily when and where we may expect.
Therefore we have a need for perseverance 
and steadfast determination in our life of prayer...
May we, therefore, never despair. 
God's time for mercy will come--
in fact, it has already come, 
if our time for believing has arrived.
Ask in faith without wavering, 
but never cease to petition the King 
simply because He has delayed His reply.  
Strike the match again and make the sparks fly. 
Yet be sure to have your tinder ready, 
for you will get a fire before long."

~Charles Spurgeon, Streams in the Desert

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
