When I was young, I was always confused as to where I will be heading since my family embraced Buddhism and yet I was sent to a mission school. When I grew up, I gave both religions a miss and focused on my career instead. The center of my life was me and myself.
March 2008 was the turning point in my life. My aunt became a Christian shortly before she passed away. After she received the Lord Jesus Christ as her Saviour, I saw the change in her life; her face no longer had that worried look. She seemed to have peace and joy that calmed her. When she passed away, my cousin related to me that my aunt wanted us to share her joy in God. I told her that I was not sure how, it was then that my cousin invited me and my family to visit YCKC.
The warm and welcoming atmosphere at YCKC made us feel at ease. After a few weeks, Steven Teoh invited us to the Alpha course. My wife and I were happy to join the class as we wanted to find out more about Christianity. On 27th August 2008, the second lesson of the Alpha course on “Why did Jesus Die?” I prayed to receive the Lord Jesus into my life.
Since then, I am more assured that our heavenly Father is always watching over me. I was the sole caregiver of my elderly father who was not in good health. He was called Home to be with the Lord in August 2010. I was grieving and could not accept the fact as it happened so suddenly.
God took a very long time to comfort me and tell me that it is all about God’s timing and not ours. I am comforted that my dad is no longer suffering in this earthy world (due to his sickness) but has a healthy and eternal life in the Heavenly kingdom. I look forward to be united with dad someday. I am thankful that I can pray to God and ask Him to help me, and He has given me peace each step of the way.
I know that the journey with Jesus Christ is a lifetime commitment. I know our Lord is a loving heavenly Father and He will help me. I praise him for His grace and mercy. I am thankful that His Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path; it guides and directs me, and I need never feel lost again. As I surrender myself to Him and let him take control of my life, I know that He will take care of me. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ!
