【EQ 在線】信心投靠,拆彈專家

 

昨天與「護心行動」的長期助手們飯聚,他們都是過去一年多次參與 Praise 和我的「癌關探訪」分隊。

我們笑說若這次交談加入一些醫護人員,他們會增加很大信心安慰絕症病人及家屬。但沒有信仰的人,若沒有心理準備聽到我們的交談,會被嚇死。

我們座上數位「前輩」平均患癌十年,有曾換肝的、患血癌及胰臟癌的、同時患兩個癌的、癌指數曾上萬多點的......

最特別的是有兩對夫妻是一方證實了患癌後,仍得到另一方願意下嫁的,現今更有了三個兒女的。

這些「紀錄」應該足夠粉碎了我們思考的固執。

在神的能力和祝福之下,「有什麽作不成的?」

「醫生跟著數據及報告告訴你,不曉得該如何治療你......用信心祈禱!求神先給你心靈強健,跟著身心也有新力量。」

「擔心結婚後配偶會早死,自己會孤苦可憐......用信心祈禱!求神賜你蒙福的婚姻,因為生命有多長久是神負責給予,不是人自供自給。」

我最享受聽到一位「前輩」說,隨時無憾返天堂,然而神仍要藉著她救多些自覺無望的人,她笑說醫護催促她吃止痛藥,她回答:「沒有疼痛又怎樣吃止痛藥?」

我對 Praise說:「現在我相信神已決定每日會接多少位信徒回天家,既然滿額所以她不能死。」

我們最共鳴的一句是:「神是拆彈專家。」

癌與抑鬱都是我們身心的計時炸彈,只有投靠最高權能,我們才真正無懼活下去,靠自己的勇氣是自欺的。

散席前我們都認同最需改變是「社群文化」。

要注入「如何與癌友談心」、「年青癌友夫妻二人行」、「為癌友兒女建立擴展家庭」的教育工具;製作 YouTube 和與專業界合辦「與希望癌友護心對談」。

來年我們打算聯絡金融界、律師、會計師和教師等行業,邀請他們的團契組織協助籌辦對談會。

今早仍很回味昨天那些「希望戰士」,想起有一段經文:

「他們因着信,制伏了敵國,行了公義,得了應許,堵了獅子的口......在曠野、山嶺、山洞、地穴,飄流無定,本是世界不配有的人。」(希伯來書11:33,38)

「本是世界不配有的人」,這個稱呼何等高貴,我們好像看透了癌症的真貎,是要把原本的人性藉著我們對神的信靠而升格。

今早看的經文是:

「這事臨到他們,是因他們驕傲,自誇自大,毀謗萬軍之耶和華的百姓。耶和華必向他們顯可畏之威,因他必叫世上的諸神瘦弱,列國海島的居民,各在自己的地方敬拜他......耶和華必伸手攻擊北方,毀滅亞述,使尼尼微荒涼,又乾旱如曠野。」(西番雅書2:10-11,13)

先知西番雅警告猶太人不要離棄他們祖先的神,否則他們將會失去神子民的地位,國王約西亞聽從他,就開始廢除偶像崇拜。

尼尼微為亞述帝國的首都,名聲至大,但是在先知的異象中,尼尼微不再是繁華,只是乾旱之地。原來尼尼微的榮華來自天然良好的灌溉,但這灌溉系統摧毀之後,尼尼微城就成乾旱區,在主前六一二年亡於巴比倫手上。

我們有為生活的健康豐足,假期可以去旅行而感恩?這「良好的灌溉」源自賜恩的神,否則我們成爲乾旱之地。

今早「護心夥伴」送來一首「耶穌掌權」:

「洪水氾濫的時候,耶穌掌權,四面受敵的時候,耶穌掌權,不看環境,只要全心來相信」

「用讚美和感謝,迎接每一天,高唱哈利路亞,哈利路亞,祂掌權在每一天,耶穌正掌權。」

 

喜樂 Joy

喜樂的心乃是良藥;憂傷的靈使骨枯乾。箴言 17:22

謙卑 Humility

敬畏耶和華是智慧的訓誨;尊榮以前,必有謙卑。箴言 15:33
Wisdom’s instruction is to fear the LORD, and humility comes before honor. Proverbs 15:33

Humility is the fear of the LORD; its wages are riches and honor and life. Proverbs 22:4

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3

但他賜更多的恩典,所以經上說:神阻擋驕傲的人,賜恩給謙卑的人。雅各書 4:6
