雪 Snow

雪 Snow

不但如此﹐就是在患难中﹐也是欢欢喜喜的。因为知道患难生忍耐;(罗马书5:3) “And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; (Romans 5:3) 试练就像不绝的大风雪那么一直不停而且难以忍受。虽然神有时把我们从苦难中救拔出来,但大多时候祂却选择陪着我们一起熬过苦难。抱着信心经历苦难会使我们更坚强,好像锻炼我们属灵的肌肉,以至我们“在患难中欢欢喜喜”,因为患难是珍珠里的沙砾。 Trials like pelting snow seem unrelenting and unbearable. Though sometimes God does deliver us from hardships, most of the time He accompanies us right through them instead.  We have faith that undergoing hardship makes […]

忍耐生老练。老练生盼望。(罗马书5:4) and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope;  (Romans 5:4) “Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (1Peter1:13) 珍珠原是在牡蛎里的一粒沙,包裹上一层一层它挣扎中分泌的粘液,经年累月硬了才变成珍珠。品格也是在痛苦的压力下,经年累月挣扎后才形成的。那时我们的灵魂因为有盼望能忍耐而得到滋养,盼望的不是今生而是来生。 The seed of a pearl is then coated with layers of oyster tears that […]

一串珍珠项链 A Pearl Necklace

我们晓得万事都互相效力﹐叫爱神的人得益处﹐就是按他旨意被召的人。(罗马书8:28) “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”  (Rom8:28) 把所有的珍珠串起来的那根线是神对我们完美的意念。祂在我们生命的计划和目标,安排那形形色色的珍珠成为一串项链,那是一串永远颂赞祂荣耀的项链。 The string that binds all the pearls together is God’s perfect will for us.   His plans and purposes for our lives arrange the diverse pearls […]

如星闪烁 Shining like stars

  凡所行的﹐都不要发怨言﹐起争论﹐使你们无可指摘﹐诚实无伪﹐在这弯曲悖谬的世代﹐作神无瑕疵的儿女。你们显在这世代中﹐好像明光照耀﹐将生命的道表明出来﹐叫我在基督的日子﹐好夸我没有空跑﹐也没有徒劳。(腓力比书2:14-16) “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life – in order that I may boast on the day of […]
