An Empty Nest Full Of Blessings
Thursday night 2 weeks ago, we arrived at home in Sligo after 34 hours of travel. The house had been empty for a couple of months, and it felt so chilly. It brought us back the memory of the very first day when we got here with our three children 6 years and 10 months ago. It was a stormy day with lots of winds, rain, and snow. Though our home had been quite busy with the homeschool for our kids and numerous student gatherings in ministry, now the sense of empty-nestedness suddenly rushed in. It took a few days to warm up the whole place. Nevertheless, we came back filled with all the blessings as described in the last update, and we are grateful this Christmas season.
In The Fullness Of Time
What was God up to 2000 years ago? What about now?
“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.” (Galatians 4:4-5 ESV)
When Jesus came to earth, it was an era with many disturbances and troubles in Judea. But, “in the fullness of time,” God sent His Son to redeem us back to the Father and bring the explosive growth of the kingdom on earth. God was up to something truly substantial in that specific time of history for that particular place on earth. Why? I will brief my thoughts in an article about how God operates the world in times and seasons and what we should do in our times, and share it with you soon. I dare say that it will be noteworthy with vast information and insights for believers. The problem is that it’s not easy writing for me. Would you please pray for this? And, stay tuned.
It’s Christmas again, and I’m ever more hopeful for the future. The darker it gets, the brighter the inextinguishable hope. Jesus, the light of the world, the hope of the nations came to dwell in us! Hallelujah!
Merry Christmas to you all!
