I could never understand then why the Lord took me out from a flourishing ministry of teaching salvation seminar, part of our Divided Bible Seminars, at a local church of the biggest Christian church in our country. I also handled Bible Studies at the houses of cell groups. But the Lord took me out from all these and placed me in a ministry involving the internet. I started then groping for light in the darkness of the cyber world. I felt then that the entire system was evil, full of sin and self exaltation, ranging from outright pornography to vain people whose only concern were to strut their own greatness in the internet. I turned to counseling to the sector which I felt needed them most- the sicked people of the cyber world. And I got nothing but tongue lashing and ridicule from most of them. I continued to persevere even when it seemed that my whole efforts were going down the drain. It was really a thankless job. And slowly but surely, I found a niche in the blog world.
We are called by the Lord to be faithful up to the end, doing His will and purpose in our lives. The process may be painful and burdensome most of the time, but the reward comes when we realize that we share in the ministry of those who point the way to the kingdom of God through His Gospel of salvation and hope. And even when the enemy brings down upon us the full fury of his hatred and might and our physical bodies become drained almost to death, we are strengthened by the Lord with His promise that, "when we are weak, then we are strong." I marveled at the resilience and strength of Shiela of Bluebirdy- Life- 4 Hours At A Time and Amrita of Yesu Garden who, although besieged with terrible physical pains and burdensome trials, stood tallest and brightest in the firmament of the blogging world to share the message of the goodness and faithfulness of the Lord to the very end. May the glorious blessings and grace of the Lord be showered upon them to the very end. As the foreword on my blog says, "it is better to light a single candle than to curse the whole darkness." TO GOD BE THE GLORY.
