The Never-fading One
The Lord Jesus Christ is the unfading One!
Many things have transpired since the last time I wrote a blog post. I went to Mrs. L's burial service, went to Maine for a trip, my paternal grandmother passed away, and I've had a super busy summer being a staffer for a UT Christian club in Austin. Also I just got back from a long family trip.
As every day went by, I was lamenting on the fact that my time with the Lord diminished rather fast. My body was just tired from all the activities in these past few months. I think almost everyday, I simply told the Lord how tired I was.
One night during my family trip, I was sleeping after a long day of driving up to the mountain. In my dream, I met my late paternal grandmother, a true person of prayer, worrying about her children and grandchildren. Now I'm not into dreams and all that but my spirit was stirred up in my sleep.
I told her not to worry, not to look back. I told her, "Our Christ will do it. He is able and faithful." She then left but for some reason, from the deepest part of my being I began to declare very clearly, very definitely, "Lord, You are the never-fading One. My love dwindles, my heart fails, but You never fade. Your love never fade. Your faithfulness never fade."
I am not sure what happened then, but I woke up encouraged, fully infused with faith. What touched me the most was the fact that the Lord did not let me go: He reminded me of who He is and what He is able to do even in my sleep.
Remembering that night, this morning I craved the Word of God. I opened the bookmarked page in my Bible and read 2 Corinthians 13:14 with the help of remarkable footnotes. I can testify that God is good for food in His Word. I am eating the Living Bread and am indeed satisfied.
An excerpt from the footnote I read today:
