hold me tight
and we will run together
to experience the Love of GOD
the Love of GOD that we shared
just YOU and ME*
He holds me close and say three words like He used to do just three words Jesus Loves You-
take my HAND; and GUIDE me through*

First time in my life where I witnessed the deaths of so many pple at one shot... thousands of deaths in one country itself was alr quite shocking and terrifying, yet the no. never stop increasing... really hard to imagining at some pt of time...
Indeed, man, however powerful and smart, are always so small and helpless before the force of nature, before the creator of such forces, before our almighty God...
Being very logical, i squeezed all my brain juice to try to reason out why such tragedy could occurred. I tot of noah ark and the 40 days of flooding... but didnt God established a covenant with us and promised that He will not wipe out mankind with "flood" again... hmm... did He break the promise, the covenant? think for few sec, realised He didnt... He didnt wipe out the whole humanity at least... God has mercy!
But still, many died... what have they done to deserve such treatment? Its hard not to question God, not to confront God when something bad happened... Why God! why are you so heartless? dont you care for us anymore? tot of Job... indeed, God's doing is beyond our comprehension... For He has told us not to lean upon our own understanding... He caused the tsunami, thats for sure... He is still in control when the tsunami occurred,thats for sure... He is there when it happened, thats for sure... its not His will for us to speculate why it happened this way... But its His will for us to go thru the process... come to realised that man dont have control over all things... it is not when God put us into a state of total helplessness will we know that we need to depend upon Him ultimately...
Tragedy it might be, but the glory of God is always there! pple who tot they have lost their loved ones found one another again... pple survived, though without food and water for up to 7 days... 18mths old toddler survived without injuries, though he was out there in the sea for some days, floating alone on a mattress... miracles isn't it? God has mercy!
Events like this happening towards the end of the year is of no coincidence... To me personally, it serves as a reminder of repentance as i start afresh with a new year... Almighty Lord, you are always merciful! Amist the disaster, there're much to give thanks to you too. Thank you, Lord for your protection over pamela (clara's friend) and huiling who were in maldives and india respectively when the tsunami hit. Thank you, O Lord for your hand to be over a small nation like singapore, to even bless us with such a good geographical location that is free from the many natural disasters. May we be constantly reminded that our peaceful homeland is a blessing from you, my Lord, my Provider. In Jesus' name I pray and give thanks, Amen!
In His Grace,
hold me TIGHT; and NEVER let go*
