A God giving hope is what we need most in this life. But do we have Him in our heart, the God who is there when everything seems to fall apart? Some believe that hope and despair share the same destination. It is not true with regards to the kind of hope that the Holy Bible is teaching.
The following poetical snippet was originally written in my Tumblr page. It is plain and no hidden meanings from the viewpoint of the universal Christian experience. Jesus Christ is giving the same faith-experience to His followers. With His indwelling Spirit in the heart, the believers in the US, in the Philippines, or in Japan (anywhere in the globe) have the same stories about how real is Jesus Christ to their lives. “As God Watches Like Father to His Son” is just the reflection on how Christ cares for His genuine followers, the born-of-God Christians.
What is the greatest form of poverty in this life? Poor pocket? Poor health? Poor relationship? NO! When cancer or accident comes to kill, Christ would say: “Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee…[but] you are not rich toward God.” In Luke 12:20-21, Christ taught about poverty toward God.
