Today's Reading: Genesis 16
Please read Genesis 16 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method:Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Genesis 16:
She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: "You are the God who sees me," for she said, "I have now seen the One who sees me." Genesis 16: 13
Many people say that serious trouble started here. Because of the lacking of faith, Abram started the fight of Jews and Arabs for thousands of year.
What the Lord helped me to see was by using another angle. God allowed Hagar to be able to see Him. How wonderful it was! Sometimes I followed a truck with a bumper-sticker saying "If you don't see my mirror, I can't see you." Because people are not seen, accidents happen.
You may remember DAY 1 of my blog about the first chapter of the Gospel of John of the seven "sees"? The seventh one is "allow yourself to be seen" from John 1: 50-51 and Matthew 5: 8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God."
If crisis or hopelessness can help us to see God or allow ourselves to be seen by God, then maybe we need some more rainy days rather than all sunshine!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Open my eyes to see you and allow myself to be seen by you. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Michelle received her bone marrow test result this afternoon and it was good! The doctor arranged this coming Monday morning to start Michelle's second chemo. And, the great news is that the doctor is allowing Michelle to attend Ignatius' UBC graduation Monday at 1p.m.. So, Michelle will go to VGH Wednesday at 9a.m. and finished by noon and then go to Chan's Centre for Iggy's big day! Wow, thanks for all your prayers! Praise the Lord!
