Count Your Blessings Along The Way..
Have any one ever heard of this song entitled ‘Count your blessings’? This song speaks of what is much needed in my heart right now. Here are the lyrics of this song:

Count Your Blessings
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. Refrain Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your blessings, see what God hath done! Count your blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. Are you ever burdened with a load of care? Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear? Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly, And you will keep singing as the days go by. Refrain When you look at others with their lands and gold, Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold; Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy your reward in heaven, nor your home on high. Refrain So, amid the conflict whether great or small, Do not be disheartened, God is over all; Count your many blessings, angels will attend, Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end. Refrain
Personal Testimony Of Dan And Eileen
Since Sept 2009, Dan and I have been on a long journey filled with tests and trials of our faith in God. The toughest part of our journey of faith is trusting and surrendering our unknown future to Him. Believing that His provisions would come on time when we needed Him. At certain time, we even thought God has forgotten us. At the beginning of 2010, we made some resolutions for the year. We trust that in His time, He will fulfill all of them. This is the year our church believes is the year for us to inherit. God has His inheritance laid before us, that we as His children would have the faith to claim them as our own. It is indeed a season for greater growth in our faith and knowledge of who God is. Looking back over the last eight months, we saw God’s provisions in many ways. 2010 is a year full of blessings already. We were blessed to have 3 of my family members and relative came to visit us in San Francisco. We were thinking of visiting family in Singapore this year. However, we could not fulfill this plan this year due to financial constrain. We still would like to do so later when we are able. Knowing that we are not able to go, God brought them to us. It’s amazing sometimes, watching His provisions. Eileen finally had her green card in her hands, May, this year. At the end of June, Eileen was admitted to the ER and in a few days, she had to have her gall bladder and gall stones removed due to the inflammation of her gall bladder. Without health insurance and financial difficulty because Dan was without a job since September 2009, we were naturally worried about the bills. Somehow, in the midst of all these, God provided through the charity organization from the hospital. All bills were paid for by the charity organization and every visits to the hospital would be paid for until September 14th. Has God been good to us? Yes, He most certainly have! Although, we are still learning to trust Him to provide in other areas, we have been indeed blessed in many ways this year. We certainly believe God has His purpose and reason in withholding some of our prayers we have had in order that we may grow deeper and stronger in our faith in Him. So, have you count your blessings yet? When you do, you will see that God is still in control of your life. Look for the blessings that come along your way rather than the loss. And you will see God in ways you’ve never seen Him before. We hope that our testimony will be a blessing to you today. Blessings, Dan and Eileen
