April: A Journey With God

Published April 16th, 2024 by The Great I AM Faith Center

It has been eight months since I relocated to Taiwan. I recalled the thrill of wanderlust and the yearning to journey with God. My brain had an excess of serotonin and dopamine. The excitement and glamor of living in a new country dissipated as I began to settle in.

If there is one word I have learned, it is humility.  “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you have a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” (Colossians 3:12-13, NIV) Is it easy to do? No, it's difficult, especially when dealing with someone cruel and mean-spirited. And sometimes I fail, which reminds me how much I need Jesus.

These eight months have been both tough and gratifying. Most significantly, I'm reminded that I am not alone. All I have to do is observe the nature around me, and I’m in God’s presence. There is no denying that God created the universe. It's stunning and majestic. I spent some time exploring Alishan Mountain alongside God. I was awed by His creation.“The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.” (Psalm 65:8, NIV) It struck me; that is how He sees me. My Father looks at me with awe and wonder. 

You don’t have to travel over 7,000 miles to be in God’s presence. He is with you, no matter where you are. I believe God is a good Father who listens to our prayers and places dreams in our hearts. I have three months left on my contract, and there's so much more I want to discover with God. Dreams that I had buried a long time ago are returning. Maybe, just maybe, I can accomplish this with God. I'm not sure how or when, but I have faith that God will provide for me. I know He’ll do it for you too.
