God Is Merciful

yaya...God is merciful...=)

just wanna share about my grandpa.

He was hopsitalized a few weeks ago because of heart attack. When i got the news, i was really shocked and worried. And i prayed, my family prayed, church members prayed and my kind friends prayed...( Really thank you all for your prayers...they meant something, really)

and we know that people that get heart attacks usually only have slim chances. and i keep praying that God will preserve his life but i pray that His will be done, because He knows best. Im afraid of losing someone i love, especially if the person is not a believer yet. God knows how i feel then, He knows, He Knows...

When we went over to see him, i feel really sad and, well, sad. Its terrible to see so many plastic tubes plugged into his body and...he looked so weak and lonely. I admit that i never quite spent time with him, talking to him. And i feel so sad. I really want to see him saved, believe in Jesus, and let God give him His joy and peace. We talked to him then and say the usual 'how do you do's, and i gave him a heart-shaped picture. I told him Jesus is always knocking at the door of our heart. But he just kept nodding and smiling. I said i want to see him in heaven, i hope he will ask God into his life. but he said its just the same. He is a Buddhist, i think. and i think he is not a very happy man.

'Oh God, please have mercy on him ' our prayers sound like this..

Towards the end of our visiting session, we asked to pray for him, but he kept refusing politely by asking us to pray ourselves and closing his eyes every now and then. My mother then said that we will pray, he can keep quiet and listen. He didnt refuse and we prayed together. God is Powerful, isn't He?

Thank God that You made him better. Thank God that he can be discharged from the hospital. Thank God that You are so merciful, how can i ever thank you O Lord?
You looked upon sinners such as us, we have nothing, we are nothing. We do not deserve Your love, Your care, but i thank you Lord that You gave Your own begotten Son for us.
Thank you for healing ye ye, though he is hospitalized again after this incident, You O God, heard our prayers and he is discharged already, Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord!

I pray to God that grandpa will one day accept His gift of salvation. I believe God loves him more than I do. No matter how deep the valley is, His Hand of grace is never to short to pick us up again. Who are we? We, mere human, do not deserve God's unfailing and everlasting love, yes?

You can say this prayer:
Dear Lord, please give us a thankful heart always, for all the blessings You have given us. Please forgive our ungratefulness at times. Thank you that You are Jehovah Rapha our Healer, the God who cares for us. Thank you Abba Father, for all that You have given us, thank you for everything. Amen.

Each day is a bonus from God. God is merciful, He is slow to anger, but abounding in love.

God Is Love. He loves you, believe it.

" For God so loved the world that He gave His ONLY begotten SON, that whoever believes in
Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16 Amen.

Let everything that has breathe praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

Dear friends, please seize the day. Every second is precious, in everything,
Be still and know that He is God...=)
