Deaths in sleep

Reading newspapers is part of my job. However, as I monitor my company's news daily, it seems to have more sad news than ever.

I really wonder why are there so many unnatural deaths lately. The local newspapers reported that for the past one month, there were 5 unnatural deaths of men whom died during their sleep.

I wonder to myself if this is a curse or is this a plague.

The more I read the news, the more I feel for the people.

5 souls.. I wonder how many of them know God personally. It strikes me hard that I need to pray harder for my family's salvation. I kept all these news in my heart and mind.

Out of these 5, one of them is actually a neighbourhood GP. He made such a big impact in the lives of the people in Rivervale that 300 over people went to the funeral.

Then, another question in my head came about. How many people have I impacted so far? The doctor has impacted so many lives. Thus... how much more should we as believers do to impact people?

Will there be people turning up for my wake, thanking me for the things that I have done for God and them... I ever wanted to start counting the number of lives that God has used me to bring them to know Jesus. But I think I can't count because I have lost count apparently.

But I want to be used to bring more lives to know God. I felt disappointed at times to see that some whom came to know God in the beginning, experienced His goodness and received His blessings before, have left to love the world more than God our Father, I just can't help but to cry in my heart. How can one self who has experienced so much goodness from Jesus be strandled away even more than before?

Is Christmas becoming an annual ritual of giving away of gifts and presents, asking people to go for Christmas events or is Christmas still that very reason why we believe - Jesus was born so that He can bring us life. Do you still remember all these?

So will lives matter to you more or they are just people that you know?

I really don't know how to end this entry but I can only say that God will never let you go even though you left Him long time ago. Give God a chance and run back to Him bah...
