One day, I saw a picture in which a child was carrying a very big schoolbag when I was viewing web pages. Apparently, the heavy schoolbag showed the child’s great pressure of study. What’s more, on the schoolbag sat the parents of the child. Of course, the point was not the child really carrying the parents, it aimed to symbolize the pressure from the parents. And surprisingly, the parents were weaving black lines above the child’s head, which I thought referred to manipulating the child’s thinking. How can a little child bear such pressure?

Being a Gatekeeper to My Daughter’s Marriage, I Insisted on Her Choosing a Spouse Her Equal
One day, my daughter suddenly called to say, “Mom, let me ask you something. What’s your requirements and demands for your prospective son-in-law?”
📘Almighty God says: “It’s very simple now: Look upon Me with your heart and your spirit will immediately become strong, you will have a path to follow and I will guide your every step. My word shall be revealed to you at all times and in all places. No matter where or when, or how adverse the environment is, I will show you clearly and My heart shall be revealed to you if you look to Me with your heart; this way[a] you will run down the road ahead and never lose your way.”
Thousands of years ago, David, a little man who was still grazing sheep, defeated the fearsome giant Goliath with only one small stone. Glory be to God!
Today, so amazing to watch the Christian Musical Documentary which is made by a group of ordinary Christians here have performed marvels again with God’s help!
Recently I chatted with a close sister in Christ. When it comes to work, we are very emotional: the fate of a person is really not in his own hands, can he find a job that suits his or her own interests that not determined by his own will, ability, and strength. In the beginning, I had excellent grades and confidently believed that I would definitely be able to work in a profession related to my major after graduation. However, I had to choose a job different from professionalism. It makes me can’t help thinking of a paragraph about the truth of the Lord’s domination send by my cousin. I think this passage is too practical. Share with you, my dear Sisters and brothers.
Almighty God said, “All things cannot be separated from God’s rule, and not a single person can separate themselves from His rule. Losing His rule and losing His provisions would mean that people’s lives, people’s lives in the flesh would disappear. This is the importance of God establishing environments for survival for mankind. It doesn’t matter what race you are or what piece of land you live on, be it in the West or the East—you cannot separate yourself from the environment for survival that God has established for mankind, and you cannot separate yourself from the nurturing and provisions of the environment for survival He has established for humans. No matter what your livelihood is, what you rely on to live, and what you rely on to sustain your life in the flesh, you cannot separate yourself from God’s rule and His management.”

A kind of flower, known as Yimi flower, is in full bloom, creating a beautiful sight in the vast desert; each Yimi flower has four petals in different colors: red, yellow, white and blue. However, very few people knew how many hardships it has undergone before it blooms.
In general, the more developed the roots of plants are, the better these plants can survive in the arid desert. However, Yimi flower only has one root. In order to draw sufficient moisture and nourishment from the soil, it can only send its roots deeper into the soil. The process takes at least five years. During this period, it has to endure the loneliness, the burning sun and strong wind, and will often sway in the wind and thus be covered with wounds and bruises. Then, after some time, usually on a bright sunny day, it blooms silently, fulfills its mission as a flower and lives out its values.
It’s hard to develop a great life force in a comfortable environment. Actually, what lies behind the hardships contains God’s will.
The Book of Proverbs from the has this to say: “The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD tries the hearts” (Proverbs 17:3).
Moses alone walked into the wilderness, where people thought none could survive, and lived there for forty years by relying on God. Hardships made him learn how to depend on God in all things and allowed believe to become stronger and stronger, so he could walk out of the wild to accept what God entrusted to him. Later, even when he was confronted with the perils—in front of him was the Red Sea, and behind him were the Egyptian soldiers after him, he was quite fearless, and led the Israelites out of Egypt by relying on God, and accomplished the job that God had entrusted him with.
If you are in a spot, do not complain, sorrow or evade it. For the blossom of our life requires a process, during this process we must endure hardships in the process, which is like the nourishment that we need to absorb. Just like Yimi flower, which will have to be frequently hit by sandstorms in the desert before it is in full bloom tenaciously. In our ordinary lives, whatever pressure, troubles or difficulties we may face, it is permitted by God and contains His good intentions. God hopes we can learn how to pray to Him and rely on Him in adversity. Only if we obey God’s leading and the word of God, will He get us through difficulties. God will also lead us to grow in adversity just as He led Moses, until our humanity becomes mature and we become strong. One day, we can bear witness to God’s deeds and repay the grace of His salvation. Then, we will be able to live a life of value and perform our duty of a created being.
Almighty God said, “How many creatures are there living and reproducing in the vast expanse of the universe, following the law of life over and over, adhering to one constant rule. Those who die take with them the stories of the living, and those who are living repeat the same tragic history of those who have died. And so mankind can’t help but ask itself: Why do we live? And why do we have to die? Who is in command of this world? And who created this mankind? Was mankind really created by Mother Nature? Is mankind really in control of its own fate? …
One stage of the work of the two previous ages took place in Israel; another took place in Judea. Generally speaking, neither stage of this work left Israel; they were the stages of work carried out among the initial chosen people. Thus, in the view of the Israelites, Jehovah God is only the God of the Israelites. Because of Jesus’ work in Judea, and because of His completion of the work of the crucifixion, from the perspective of the Jews, Jesus is the Redeemer of the Jewish people. He is solely the King of the Jews, not of any other people; He is not the Lord who redeems the English, nor the Lord who redeems the Americans, but He is the Lord who redeems the Israelites, and in Israel it is the Jews that He redeems. Actually, God is the Master of all things.
