努力

「你正在為什麼努力?」教會的客座講員問道。

坦白說,我有點訝異我居然聽見他說什麼。我時常恍神,因為想著星期一工作內容需做的準備而分心,或是太忙於批評講道以致無法讓我的心聆聽。但這次我聽到了,而且我的心與他奮力傳講的道理起了連結,同時我的心告訴我這是我需要聽的。我們都為著某些事情而努力,我們費了好多心力追逐著某些事情,可能是娛樂、派對、友誼、浪漫的關係、金錢、權力、聲望⋯⋯等等,可能是這所有的事物。

我知道我現在正為著什麼努力,但我應該要為什麼而努力?

在教會的那週日,擊中我的點是:我現在正在努力的事情,他們可能不是壞事,但他們不是最重要的事情,最重要的事情是親自去了解上帝和知道上帝了解我們,其他都是次要的。我有在努力認識神嗎?我有花費心思,真正努力更瞭解祂嗎?

重新調整、重新對焦,再次更新,重新恢復,重新贖回。

關於 Linda Huang

I’m Linda Huang. I’m currently studying in Sweden and was participated in VOICE as a student in 2013 and V2 in 2015. Before going to VOICE, I have always been a normal person, with a normal life. I just followed the tradition of the Chinese people and worshipped their idols. After I graduated from senior high school, I started a part time job. I didn’t know why I earned the money. I just kept working. Then in April, 2013, my elementary school’s classmate Sean Liao told me everything about VOICE. What impressed me the most was that he said “You will never forget anything that happens over there”. He invited me to apply for VOICE that year. I was in a quandary first, because I knew I had to pay the money. However, I thought it might be a good way to know God more so I applied it and paid two-thirds of the money by myself. The first weekend was my first time to go to church. On that day, I fainted because I didn’t eat breakfast. Karen took care of me and told me something about Jesus. She said “Jesus would be your best friend for a lifetime.” which I still remember. Even though it was a little bit awkward that I didn’t know anything about Jesus and never read the Bible or prayed before, but now I know the things that God told me is whoever believes in God shall not perish but have eternal life. God will change us to be the person He designed us to be. He had made preparations for me beforehand for a long time. I also got baptized in 2015 when I returned to VOICE. I will keep loving Him and serving Him. And I hope that I will spread the good news to other people that haven’t heard of it yet. God has truly stepped into my heart and blessed me, giving me a new life and Jesus Christ to hold on to my faith. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”. - Proverbs 3:5-6
