The Three Be’s

When growing up as a child, I can remember that I wanted to "be" a trash collector. I thought it was cool to see them riding on the back of the trash truck. After going through that phase, I wanted to "be" a mailman. They were always nice, and they were like Santa Clause, at least if I got mail. The next thing I desired "to be" was Superman. I had a cape and everything! Daily, when I was in my Superman gear, I would go outside to "fly" by getting on top of the retaining wall and jump off, hoping to fly. I wanted to be all of these things as a child but to no avail. 

Later on, before graduating High School, I can remember being asked numerous times by numerous people, "what are you going to school for." In essence, they are asking, "what do you want to be when you grow up." It seems like we are always striving "to be" something or someone for most of our lives. Even as adults, we want to "be" better parents, better spouses, or the better at our occupation. 

Paul gives us three simple "be's" in our lives, and they are in Romans 12:12, which says, 

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." -Romans 12:12 NIV

Paul's first be is for us to be "joyful in hope," we can look forward to our future with Christ, where there will be no more tears, pain, or crying. (Revelations 21:4) We can look forward to being in His Manifest Presence. Let's be joyful in this hope that we have, and may God use this for His glory. This "hope" means something "to look forward to," it's confidence in what is to come. Let's be confidently looking at our Savior and looking forward to what He has promised us. 

Paul's second "be" is for us to be "patient in affliction." But how can we be like Job in the Bible and "be patient in affliction?" We can be patient in our afflictions by looking forward to our hope and looking to our "Author and Perfector of our faith", Jesus Christ. ( Hebrews 12: 2) 

James also reminds us to be patient in our afflictions like a farmer waiting to harvest his crops in James 5, where he says,

"Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near."  -James 5:7-8 NIV 

Paul's third be is for us to "be faithful in prayer." Prayer is the "power of God's people." It is something we can do at any time. We don't need to bring anything with us. All that is needed is a desire to grow deeper in our walk with Christ. When we pray, we grow joyful in our hope, and He can empower us to be joyful in our afflictions because we are spending time with our Creator, the One in full-control. 

All for Jesus,

Pastor Moe

在病痛中的体会
我若不信在活人之地,得见耶和华的恩惠,就早已喪胆了。……詩27:13

病痛中的掙扎
我现在正在匹兹堡一家医院的加护病房中師母身旁写这篇文章。想写一下来匹兹堡医院这些天的体会。原来上星期来匹兹堡医院,只是想来几天,处理一下师母腹水及电解质不平衡的问题就回去。想不到进医院之后马上就进病房。检查之后马上说考虑进加护病房。最后真的进了加护病房。情况越来越差。不但肝有问题,似乎也影响了肾,还有心脏。星期五主治医生建议:最好的选择是马上做肝脏移植,并且越快越好,晚换不如早换。因为是长周末,医生马上做急件处理,也包括保险公司同意,目标是下个礼拜就完成肝脏移植手术。我发现有的时候做对的决定真的是不容易;因为人常常还看不清楚時,就需要做决定。但感谢神,想到可以向神祷告;虽然有的时候我们真的看不清楚,不晓得怎样的决定是最正确的;但是我们可以把这件事完全的交托给神,让他来带領。所以就向神祷告:”感谢神,因为你掌管这一切,愿你继续带领;借着环境,医生显明你的心意,賜下最大的好处给你的儿女;因为你知道我们不晓得怎么选择” 。祷告之后,心里满有平安。

移植的预备
原定目标这星期完成换肝手术。今天是9月8号星期二。大女儿和二女儿预备开車到这里的医院,来的目的最主要是做捐赠肝之前的评估,之后可能马上进行移植手术。是的,三个孩子都愿意帮助妈妈。(但老三不行,因为不到年龄)。

当师母被断定为肝硬化比较晚期时,我们知道让自己的小孩当捐赠者是一条可能的路,但觉得等需要的时候再说,并且讲这样的事,怎么说呢?可是有天,老二忽然告诉妈妈;他做了research,知道妈妈可以接受活体捐赠;他也愿意把他的肝捐赠给妈妈,其他两个知道之后,他们都愿意。連很怕打針和血的老大也愿意。主啊!谢谢你,给我们三个懂得爱的小孩。

意外的消息
今天主治医生来探望;告诉我们,过去这两天师母的检验数值在好转,但不确定是不是真的好转(我就不多解释原因),但黄疸症状一直没有好转。我的了解是这样的:从黄疸的情况,可以看到是不是真的好转。我问医生,如果黄疸症状变好,那会影响移植手术的计划吗?医生说会,但要看到黄疸的变化,可能要几个星期才能看得清楚。这是目前的情况。接下来会怎么样发展不知道,只是医生没有提到这个礼拜要完成移植手术了。但他提到移植手术的整个预备过程要继续进行;以致需要的时候就可以进行。

神啊,虽然接下来不晓得会如何发展,但有一件事是确定的-你会把最好的给你的儿女,我们不一定需要知道所有的事。

感谢
谢谢许多弟兄姐妹的爱,关怀及祷告。神是听祷告的主,你们的扶持使我们有力量。也感谢神把平安赐给我们;在患难中最宝贵的是祂的平安。

”特别报告”
师母的生病来的太突然,有一点让我们不知所措。后来知道有姐妹自发成了一个群作为support,免的师母要花精力个别面对许多人的关心。这群是王蓓姊妹在协调,如果你愿意比较快的得到及时的更新,可以跟他联系,请他加你入群。另外我们也会开始在每周的电子周报上更新我们每周的情况。感谢众肢体的关心及代祷,你们在主里的爱使我们更有力量前进。

(林牧师)
