The Trials, Victories & Adventures of Los PaulOS

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ~ 1 John 4:18

Where, O Death Is Your Sting?

You have read, in my blogs.. about deaths & murders.. to date.. it's like this lah

1st February - Funeral of a friend's friend - Died of Old Age
Mid February - PMC Counsellor's Dad - Died of Cancer
Early this year Pastor Ben's Mom - Died of Cancer
19th April - Gwendolene - Died of Cancer
18th May - Peng - Murdered- Asphyxia
25th May - Shahzila's boyfriend - Murdered in a factory

And today, I found out a friend has a potentially life threatening disease, 4th Stage Lung Cancer.

I am not pronouncing death on my friend, but I pray that God will, in His infinite GRACE and MERCY and omniscience and omnipotence, heal her. But not my will but YOUR will be done Lord.

I am wondering what God's saying to me in all this right now. There are many obvious things that can be derived from this.. but is there something specific, and not obvious. I wanna tap into the spiritual realm and hear and see..

Pray with me..

    About 3 years ago I dropped into a black hole – four months of absolute terror. I wanted to end my life, but somehow [Holy Spirit], I reached out to a friend who took me to hospital. I had three visits [hospital] in four months – I actually thought I was in hell. I imagine I was going through some sort of metamorphosis [mental, physical & spiritual]. I had been seeing a therapist [1994] on a regular basis, up until this point in time. I actually thought I would be locked away – but the hospital staff was very supportive [I had no control over my process]. I was released from hospital 16th September 1994, but my fear, pain & shame had only subsided a little. I remember this particular morning waking up [home] & my process would start up again [fear, pain, & shame]. No one could help me, not even my therapist [I was terrified]. I asked Jesus Christ to have mercy on me & forgive me my sins. Slowly, all my fear has dissipated & I believe Jesus delivered me from my “psychological prison.” I am a practicing Catholic & the Holy Spirit is my friend & strength; every day since then has been a joy & blessing. I deserve to go to hell for the life I have led, but Jesus through His sacrifice on the cross, delivered me from my inequities. John 3: 8, John 15: 26, are verses I can relate to, organically. He’s a real person who is with me all the time. I have so much joy & peace in my life, today, after a childhood spent in orphanages [England & Australia]. God LOVES me so much. Fear, pain, & shame, are no longer my constant companions. I just wanted to share my experience with you [Luke 8: 16 – 17]. God sent his Son into the world to reconcile us to Himself (Col 1: 20.) Jesus Christ came not to tell us the answer to the universal problem of evil, but to overcome evil, sin and death by His everlasting love. Division and dissension, hatred and fear, aggressive power and exploitation could be conquered only by a gentle, suffering love unto death. By freely sacrificing his human life in dying for us, Jesus in His humanity was raised to glory by His Father’s Spirit and is now able to live within us.

    Peace Be With You
