Behind the shroud of anonymity...

My previous post sparked an interesting comment from an anonymous person (not that i'm surprised) which i thought would be interesting to highlight.

Here it is:

Anonymous said -

"I bet you must be asking..'God.. why am i here for??'every single day in Labuan.if God says 'with a purpose my son'would then your days/weeks/months/years be 'freaking...' still??what would God's response be then?"

To which i replied -

"To anonymous:Point taken (in fact, it's been noted ever since i came to know Christ quite a while back - cos' i've had my share of 'pits' and 'prisons' and 'Potiphar's house').
Yet,knowing God and trusting Him doesn't necessarily mean we don't 'feel' the way we do and ask the questions we feel.
Remember David.
Remember even Jesus.
But what matters and means more is that despite the questions and feelings ... we still choose to trust and follow Him.
You may think that better is the man who never asks questions, i say better is the man who asks and yet obeys."

probly your post sounded so despair and full of complaints to me and being not know you. i could have misunderstood. could it be your work, the place, or even the ppl surrounding you has caused such cry in you.

i do come across ppl who kept asking God why and why, they seemed to obey but they are not satisfied. they heard, but they just do not accept it, and at the same time keep finding ways to get out from the situation or even the place they were put up to. sometimes it makes me think we are like Jonah, running away from our calls. am sure it takes lotz of time to adjust. i know God one day will let us go when He thinks we are done with that task (is like talking back to me..).. is a matter of time..

well.. who says obedient is easy? there is always PRICE to pay, right?

anyway.. stay close to Jesus..
