The Lrd will fight for you. August 29, 2010

In short, I came back to Shanghai claiming the promise that Father would redeem SH. I had a plan to be proactive to have accountability/community and resolved that He is the ONLY one that would get me through. However, when i came back started orientation week it was still SUPER difficult.  I asked for unfailing strength or deliverance, father answered with a very specific confirmation.

I was offered resignation from my job @ SMIC, and I pryed and made the decision between Father and me, and I took it. 🙂 So now I am jobless and homeless… ^__^ My current plan is to stay in SH for another 6 months to study Chinese, serve at local club, part time job, amongst endless possibilities father will bring. 🙂 In terms of housing, people have been extremely gr8cious in helping and housing me ^__^

The story of HIS GLORY(intricate details and all) in this crazy journey is currently being written up… please stay tuned. 🙂

sorry f8thful readers that the difficulties through these months have inhibited me from writing and sharing with y’all. I, too, have been confused as to how to communicate what happened, but father has definitely made his way clear and Oh how he honors the heart the seeks him…  though times were dark, He truly brings forth light! The battle is real, and the Lrd, your God, will fight for you. If Gd is for us, who can be against us!! He has already won victory! ^___^

As I constantly must die to myself, he lives in me… JC in us is the HOPE of glory!

Before the Morning by Josh Wilson

Do you wonder why you have to feel the things that hurt you
If there’s a God who loves you, where is He now
Maybe there are things you can’t see
And all those things are happening to bring a better ending
Someday somehow you’ll see, you’ll see

Would you dare, would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming
So hold on you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

My friend, you know how this all ends, you know where you’re going
You just don’t know how you’ll get there, so say a prayer
And hold on cause there’s good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot, it might take a little time
But you’ll see the bigger picture

Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory
Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory

Would you dare, would you dare to believe
That you still got a reason to sing
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming
Come on you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the hurt before the healing
Oh the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning
