From the Inside

For many of you, this video perhaps be like just a blur but, each stroke, pedal and step is very real in my life, seeing the Ambulance was really very memorable. As i remember, God's presence was not "felt" on that day when i race. A day of struggle, pain and frustration. Talking to God was more taxing than cycling that Expressway. Soon I fell, I puked, the ambulance was there, Pain surged in my body and I had to make a tough decision.

Medic: Do you want to give up?
Sky: *pause* Yes I do

And HE caught me in His Arms, the feeling was so intense I was holding my tears the best I could in the Ambulance. God is closer than you think, its not some theological concept but the real deal--intimate connection with a deep personal God.

This is 1 of my real experience of remembering God is real close to me. I believe all of us knows this promise
Deut 31:6 Be Strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you or forsake you.

I believe we all go through seasons or days questioning God's presence. Sometimes we simply do not feel Him, hear Him(maybe its due to the noise around and noise in your heart). But how we press on is simply we choose to believe. We fail to realize that our individual uniqueness means we will all experience God's presence and learn to relate to him in different ways. Through people, that makes cell group or meetings important or through your work, worship etc. He doesn't play games with our lives ,our God is never hard to find.
