 一天清晨,我早早醒來去看日出。
啊!神的創造之美遠遠超過人所能描述的。在觀看時,我為主如此美麗的創造之工而贊 美。我坐在那兒,感到主就在我的身旁。
主問我:“你愛我嗎?”我答道:“當然,我的神!您是我的主,我的救贖者。”
他又問我:“如果你身體有殘疾,是否仍舊愛我?”我有些糊塗。於是低頭看看我的胳 膊、腿和其他部分,我懷疑有多少事我原以為是理所當然的卻不一定能做到。但我還是 回答說,"主啊,這是很難的,但我仍舊愛您。"
主接著問我:“如果你是瞎眼的,你仍愛我的創造之物嗎?”我該如何去愛那些我無法 看見的東西呢? 然而我又想到世上那些失明的人們,他們中間有許多人仍愛著神和他 的創造之物!於是我回答說:“ 想起來很難,但主啊,我還是願意愛您。”
主又問我:“如果你是一個聾子,你是否仍願意聽我的話語?”耳聾的如何能夠聽見呢 ?然而我明白 了。聽神的話語並不僅僅用我們的耳朵,而是用我們的心。我回答說: “主啊,會很難,但我願意聽 您的話語。”
然後主問我:“如果你是一個啞巴,你是否仍願意讚美我的名?”沒有聲音我如何能贊 美呢?然而一 句話啟示了我:神希望我們從心底和靈魂的最深處發出讚美,他並不在 乎我們的聲音如何。於是我回 答說:“即使我不能發聲,我仍將讚美您的名。”
主又問我:“你真的愛我嗎?”帶著勇氣和信心,我大膽地回答說:“是的,主啊!我 愛您是因您是那唯一的真神。” 我想我已經回答得很好了,但是……
神繼續問我:“那麼為什麼你還犯罪?”我回答說:“因為我是人,我不完全。”
“那為什麼在平安無事的時候你迷失得那麼遠?在遭遇難處的時候你又那麼殷勤地禱告 ?”
……沒有回答,有的只是眼淚。
主又繼續:“為什麼你只在團契和教會中歌唱?為什麼你只在敬拜的時候尋求我?為什 麼你每次都如此自私地只為自己求?為什麼你求的時候沒有信心?”
……我的眼淚 順著我的脖子一直往下流。
“為什麼你以我為羞恥?為什麼你不傳福音?為什麼在受逼 迫的時候,你不靠著我的肩膀去哭泣卻去靠著人的?為什麼我給你機會去為我的名服事 的時候,你總是找藉口?”
我嘗試著去回答,但卻無言以對。
“你的生活如此蒙祝福。是我不讓你把如此好的救恩禮物扔掉。我保守你擁有聰明才智 是為了讓你服事我,但你卻繼續逃離我。我用我的話語啟示你,但你卻不在知識上追求 長進。我向你講話,但你的耳朵卻閉著。我把我的祝福傾注在你的身上,但你的眼目卻 離開這祝福。我派使者幫助你,但你卻懶散地坐著把他們趕跑。我卻聽了你的禱告並都 作了回答。”
“你真的愛我嗎?”
我無法回答。我該如何回答呢?我在信仰上是如此的羞愧。我別無藉口。我能說些什麼 呢?我的心 開始哭泣,淚水湧出來,我說:“主啊,求能饒恕我。我不配作你的孩 子。”
主回答說:“那是我的恩典,孩子。”
我問道:“那麼您為什麼一再原諒我呢 ?為什麼您會如此愛我呢?”
主答道:“因為你是我所創造的,你是我的孩子。我永遠不會撇棄你。當你哭泣的時候 ,我憐憫你, 我與你同哭泣。當你高興地高呼時,我與你同笑。當你洩氣時,我鼓勵 你。當你跌倒時,我扶起你。 當你疲憊時,我背著你。我將與你同在直到最後的日子 ,並且我將永遠愛你。”
我前所未有地傷心痛哭著。我怎能如此心硬呢?我怎麼如此這般地傷神的心呢?
最後我很想問神:“那麼,您愛我有多深呢?”
主伸出他的臂膀,我看到他那釘痕的雙手。
我在基督——我的救主腳下深深地伏服下來。

第一次,我發自內心地禱告。

One day, I woke early in the morning to watch the sunrise.
Ah the beauty of God's creation is beyond description.
As I watched, I praised God for His beautiful work.
As I sat there, I felt the Lord's presence with me.
He asked me, "Do you love me?" I answered, "Of course, God!
You are my Lord and Savior!"
Then He asked, "If you were physically handicapped, would you still love me?"
I was perplexed. I looked down upon my arms, legs and the rest of my body and wondered how many things I wouldn't; be able to do, the things that I took for granted. And I answered, "It would be tough Lord, but I would still love You."
Then the Lord said, "If you were blind, would you still love my creation?"
How could I love something without being able to see it? Then I thought of all the blind people in the world and how many of them still loved God and His creation. So I answered, "It's hard to think of it, but I would still love you."
The Lord then asked me, "If you were deaf, would you still listen to my word?"
How could I listen to anything being deaf? Then I understood. Listening to God's Word is not merely using our ears, but our hearts. I answered, "It would be tough, but I would still listen to Your word." The Lord then asked,
"If you were mute, would you still praise My Name?" How could I praise without a voice?
Then it occurred to me: God wants us to sing from our very heart and soul.
It never matters what we sound like. And praising God is not always with a song, but when we are persecuted, we give God praise with our words of thanks. So I answered, "Though I could not physically sing, I would still praise Your Name."
And the Lord asked, "Do you really love Me?" With courage and a strong conviction, I answered boldly, "Yes Lord! I love You because You are the one and true God!" I thought I had answered well, but...
God asked,
"THEN WHY DO YOU SIN?"
I answered, "Because I am only human. I am not perfect."
"THEN WHY IN TIMES OF PEACE DO YOU STRAY THE FURTHEST?
WHY ONLY IN TIMES OF TROUBLE DO YOU PRAY THE EARNEST?"
No answers. Only tears.
The Lord continued: "Why only sing at fellowships and retreats? Why seek Me only in times of worship?
Why ask things so selfishly? Why ask things so unfaithfully?"
The tears continued to roll down my cheeks.
"Why are you ashamed of Me? Why are you not spreading the good news? Why in times of persecution, you cry to others when offer My shoulder to cry on? Why make excuses when I give you opportunities to serve in My Name?"
I tried to answer, but there was no answer to give.
"You are blessed with life. I made you not to throw this gift away. I have blessed you with talents to serve Me, but you continue to turn away. I have revealed My Word to you, but you do not gain in knowledge.
I have spoken to you but your ears were closed. I have shown My blessings to you, but your eyes were turned away. I have sent you servants, but you sat idly by as they were pushed away. I have heard your prayers and I have answered them all."
"DO YOU TRULY LOVE ME?"
I could not answer. How could I? I was embarrassed beyond belief.
I had no excuse. What could I say to this? When my heart had cried out and the tears had flowed, I said, "Please forgive me Lord. I am unworthy to be Your child." The Lord answered, "That is My Grace, My Child." I asked, "Then why do you continue to forgive me? Why do You love me so?"
The Lord answered, " Because you are My Creation. You are my Child. I will never abandon you.
When you cry, I will have compassion and cry ! with you.
When you shout with joy, I will laugh with you! When you are down, I will encourage you.
When you fall, I will raise you up. When you are tired, I will carry you. I will be with you till the end of days, and I will love you forever."
Never had I cried so hard before. How could I have been so cold?
How could I have hurt God as I had done? I asked God, "How much do You love me?"
The Lord stretched out His arms, and I saw His nail-pierced hands. I bowed down at the feet of Christ, my Savior. And for the first time, I truly prayed.
