I Thank You Lord

Thank you Lord for the trials that come my way,
In that way I can grow each day as I let You lead.
And thank You, Lord, for the patience those trials bring,
In that process of growing I can learn to care.

But it goes against the way I am, to put my human nature down,
And let the Spirit take control of all I do.
For when those trials come,
my human nature shouts the things to do;
And God's soft prompting can be easily ignored.

I thank You Lord with each trial I feel inside,
That You're there to help lead and guide me away from wrong.
'Cause You promised Lord that with every testing,
that Your way of escaping is easier to bear.

I thank You Lord for the victory that growing brings,
In surrender of everything life is so worthwhile.
And I thank You Lord that when everything's put in place,
Out in front I can see Your face, and it's there You belong.


上個星期日,零晨五點多,我醒過來。這種時候醒來,是我和神的默契,我知道我需要禱告。那天,我再次求聖靈在我生命活躍工作(這段日子都求這個),又為惠美禱告。

然後,又睡了。

早晨崇拜時,一開口唱詩,我就感到心特別柔軟,唱到最後一首歌:Thank You Lord時,我開始壓抑不住淚水,哭了。每次聖靈觸動我時,我一定會哭。這次也一樣。

那時想到惠美的病,很傷心,我好像變成了她,Thank You Lord一字一句歌詞是對我說話。

這個禱告經歷對我很重要。接下來的日子,惠美開始接受化療,抗癌的路又長又難走,是一場長期的抗戰,如果我只是偶而想起為她禱告,那不是真正的禱告扶持,神要我像“變成了她”那樣為她禱告。

另外,那個早晨的禱告讓我清楚一件事神聽見了我的呼求。那天是這樣,以後每一次我為惠美禱告也是一樣,神聽見了!因為是“聖靈用說不出的嘆息”與我一起為她禱告。

過了幾天,我和惠美通skype聊起這經歷,她說:“難怪!那几天我特別擔憂,因為媽媽病了,擔心沒人照顧恩欣,又擔心自己的病,可是到了星期日,突然一下子什麼擔憂都沒有了,我還奇怪怎會有這麼大的改變,原來是你在禱告。”

代禱,是神托給我的職份,我會時時記得祂要我怎樣禱告。
