You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works." - Psalm 145:9

Today as I was getting ready to go to my workplace my little daughter was playing in the hall. She was nearly 15 months old and I went near to her and asked for a kiss. She didn’t give one and went away as if she didn’t hear my request. Few minutes passed and she was on her own world playing. 

Finally as I was about to leave, I took my bag and called my daughter and told her bye. She looked at me from the place where she was standing and then she came near to me calling daddy. As I knelt near to her she just came forward and gave me a kiss and then moved away to play. I had never expected that and her love touched my heart so deeply that I could not take my mind out of it. To be frank, I felt like crying at that moment when she remembered what I asked for and did that in a wonderful way. 

She is a perfect blessing in my life given by God to me through which I am loving my life and having a desire to live. 

From my young days I faced few problems which affected my mind mentally. I always had a great fear, depression and anxiety in my mind. I struggled physically, spiritually and mentally. During those days I lost the desire to live in this world. There was a particular church in the town where I live and I used to go to that church several days to pray asking God to take my life. 

Though God gave me good parents, brothers and friends, I could not take my mind out of that depression. God knows what I was going through and He told me that I have to marry according to His will so that His peace will overflow in my life. He gave me His grace to find a wife according to His will and He blessed my marriage life. 

When my wife got pregnant, God gave so many promises. Every one of my loved ones who were around me heard those promises and thought that I will get a baby boy. Everyone believed that strongly. They were the ones who were praying for me day and night. They were not against a baby girl but yet they believed in such a way. 

But God knew what my greatest desire in this world was. He knew that I longed for a baby girl. He granted my wish and I got my daughter. That day no one knew how happy I was. Jesus Christ filled me with joy and laughter. From that day on whenever I see her, I had fallen in love with her so deeply and madly. 

There were times I face tough situations and when I reach home and see her face, God’s peace fills my heart through her smile and behaviour. I know God’s purpose in my life that I have to do great things for Him. And she is a perfect gift from God which He gave to make me strong in this world. Whenever she repeatedly calls me daddy I get a strong desire to live in this world. Indeed she is God’s perfect gift and I thank God for giving her in my life trusting that I will take good care of her. 

Bible says that God is good to all and His tender mercies are all over His works. I know my daughter is the work of God’s hands and through her I understood the greatness of God’s tender mercies. Once I had thought that I will never have happiness in my life but today God has blessed me in all aspects. He will do that to you.

My dear young friends, I was not at all worthy to live in this world for I did so many things against God but yet He made me to live in this world. He will do much more greater things in your life. Jesus Christ will do good to you. His mercies will be upon you and He will never forsake you. He has greater things in store for you. Do not hate your life for anything. He will do good and will fill you with joy and laughter.
