It's not easy. I'll tell you. Almost anyone will tell you. If anyone says it's a total bed of roses he is probably a faux-Christian.
Sure we get our rewards for following the Path of life. We are greatly blessed. Highly favoured. Deeply loved. But no one ever, ever said it would be easy.
Then again, when has it ever been?
Paul, the very murderer of Christians, formerly known as Saul, was persecuted several times because of his faith in the Lord.
We are blessed that most of us now, at least in Singapore, do not face criminal persecution for our faith. Our persecution, so to speak, comes in much smaller trials. And even that I cannot take.
But the Lord is my ally, and a powerful ally He is. He sent the one obvious person to make me see, in broad daylight, my faults. He hardened my heart that I returned the attacks of my persecutors twofold (I think), that I may judge myself unworthy of His grace, and yearn for His shalom peace.
I love you, Daddy. Only this time, it can't be more than you'll ever know. :-)
