When A Thunder Comes

Is only You Father taking my picture..

I woke up too early this morning because of heavy raining outside.. I dislike thunderbolt alot.. Ask me why? Im not so sure too why..
So I woke up, I sat and took my bible.. I started to do my quiet time, I prayed. I asked God to relieve the storm outside so I could go back to sleep again :p and also to relieve the storm that is in my heart and mind. Humm..
And I flip over my diary.. Suddenly come over to this page..

When a thunder comes.. is only You Father taking my picture..
I will never forget the stories that he told us..

First illustration
Alkisah di malam hari seorang ayah sedang menceritakan dongeng kepada putri ciliknya untuk menemani sang kekasih hati tidur.. Setelah mencium kening sang putri, ayah mengatakan "selamat tidur putri kecilku, I love you" dan mematikan lampu.
Sang ayah pergi menemui bunda di dapur, dan mengadakan perbincangan sederhana seputar hari yang mereka lewati.. Tiba-tiba hujan deras mengguyur rumah mereka bergantian dengan kilat dan sambar petir..
"Aku pergi melihat keadaan putri kecil dahulu" kata sang ayah.. Siapa tau dya ketakutan dan tidak bisa tertidur. Beranjak lah sang ayah ke kamar putrinya, melihat ke dalam kamar si kecil..
Lampu kamar masih gelap namun di kasur kosong, si putri kecil tak ada di kasurnya. Ayah melihat ke kiri dan kanan mencari keberadaan sang putri.. Kemanakah dya?
NAH! There she is.. Si putri kecil berdiri tepat di depan jendela kamarnya yang tirainya terbuka lebar sambil merentangkan kedua tangannya..
"Sedang apa kamu disana sayang? Kenapa tidak kembali tidur? Tidakkah kamu takut akan petir itu?"
Sang putri kecil menjawab.. "Aku berdiri disini karena Tuhan sedang mengambil foto diriku ayah.."


One thing I have learn from this story.. We need to have heart like little children.. have faith like little children.

Matthew 18:3
Then he said, "I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven."


Abraham go to the promise land by going not knowing, walking not knowing! Sometimes is very hard for us to determine God's ways. But God have the perfect ways and the perfect timing. Not one second earlier, not one second late. God is in perfect timing and perfect purpose!

God knows what He is doing and He is always in control. I know and I experienced it that following God is not easy and sometimes very hard! But everything that happen in our life is not coincidence but God's coincidence. Whatever situation you face rite now, remember that God is always in perfect control!

Second illustration
Setiap kita memiliki mimpi dan harapan yang kita genggam. Semakin erat kita menggenggam mimpi itu di jari-jari kita, semakin sulit untuk Tuhan menarik satu-satu jari kita dan akan sangat menyakitkan.. Dimulai dari Tuhan menarik membuka jari kelingkingmu, jari manis, dst.


God want to educate us in His thinking, the more hard we keep our will, it is very hard for God to open our mind. Because we against His will. God will take anything that block us from our faith, from His purpose. He him selves will make sure that His calling will come to past! His calling is irrevocable.

Walking with God is not always easy.. sometimes is scary and dangerous. God promises a safe landing but not a calm passage. In this journey of life, we need to set our eyes on God alone! Because nothing last forever, forever is one God's own! He is the only one last forever. Our God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He is reliable and faithful!

Hebrew 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.


There's something along the way in our journey that God want us to learn, that He want us to understand. God always working behind our scene for us. He know the perfect time, He know the best way. He created each of use uniquely, we all have different capacity.

1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.


When God give the words we need to obey! Obedience comes from true revelation and revelation comes from true obedience. Everyday we step out say to God, God i want to obey You and give me Your wisdom and Your revelation. Keep walking, keep going and keep trusting! :)

God never promised
A life without pain,
Laughter without tears
Or sun without rain.
But He did promise
Strength for the day,
Comfort for the tears
And light for the way,
And for all who believe
In His Heaven above
He rewards their faith
In His everlasting love.
