the rain that falls in the night

there are some people who are placed in our lifes simply to bring misery. sometimes even the sight of them hurts you.

no i'm serious. i bet everyone has had or will have at least one person in his or her life that has painted or will paint unpleasant memories in his or her life. be it that 'best friend' you've known since forever that backstabs you for some guy or that boss who takes all the credit for the work you've done or that group of click in school who makes you feel like an outcast or that mum who favours your genius sister over you or that guy who broke your heart for what seem like the millionth time and the list goes on.

so what pulls us through these times?

well...for me is God. my stronghold and my deliverer. sometimes i wonder what would i be if i didn't have Him in my life. my answer: a resident in Hospital Bahagia, Tanjung Rambutan. lol.

i'm not saying my life is full of sorrows and hurts that i would have to enrol into a mental instituition. haha. all i'm saying is if it weren't for the faith i have in the Lord's unfailing love for me, i wouldn't view things the way i view them today. His grace and mercy has sustained me through all circumstances. and that is why i believe there's no problem too big for God. there's a saying that says " Jesus is bigger than the biggest problem you ever have." how true it is.

let me end with a passage from Psalms 23 that never fails to comfort me:

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.

He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for you are with me;

your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
