Faith

A rainbow of faith.

A rainbow of faith.

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

I read a powerful thing in today’s devotional reading that resonated deep within me about having faith in God so here’s an excerpt that I want to share with everyone.

“It comes therefore as a shock that these two spheres of human uncertainty (the future and the unseen) are precisely those in which faith specialises and even flourishes! It is the function of faith to apprehend both the unseen present and the unrealised future. Put simply, faith is the assurance that the future we anticipate will take place and the present we cannot se is nevertheless real.”

And further on he writes:

“Faith is not a synonym for credulity or superstition. It is neither irrational nor illogical. No, faith and reason are never placed in antithesis to one another in Scripture. Faith and sight are contrasted, but not faith and reason. On the contrary, ‘Those who know Your Name put their trust in You’. They trust because they know. The reasonableness of trust arises from the trustworthiness of its object, and nobody is more trustworthy than God.”

Thank YOU everyone for praying! My uncle is improving tremendously day by day and I received the truly awesome news that he accepted Jesus as my Aunt Julia has been sharing with him as she helps take care of him. Another one of my aunts is already mid-flight and will be landing in Singapore tomorrow morning. It’s a gruelling 30-hour flight for her as she comes all the way from Boston and I’m awed by all the care & love that I am seeing in my family in this difficult time. Family & love are definitely blessings from the One Above.

It’s gonna be a tough two weeks of work as we have a very tight deadline for an upcoming project. Lots to do but I know that I have God to sustain me. He has been with me all this while and I know that He will never leave me nor forsake me.

On another note … Altered Frequency is all done with their new album Transit. Look out for it very, very soon. I’ve got a preview copy and I’m loving it … all of us are working hard to do all the necessary to reproduce the album now so it’s one final stretch before you’ll see it in stores.

Check back soon for more news!
