The Truth Of God -
I came from a modest family in Singapore. My parents were loving couple, and four children in my family also got along well. My grandmother lived with us as well. We were a warm and happy family. Unfortunately, when I was at fifth grade, I lost my pregnant mother and my only brother in a fatal car accident which resulted in a 3 lives tragedy including the unborn. The court sentenced the reckless German woman driver to acquittal because of “insufficient evidences” ! My whole family and those who knew us were very angry by the result. However, we could only say that the result due to the driver and her multi-national company hired the famous lawyer Mr. David Marshall, who once helped Singapore gain independence and was also a well known for setting the accused free.
Since then, I started to question the existence of God. If there was a God, why did He not stop this tragedy? I was also disappointed at the laws. It was obvious that the three from my family were killed on the crosswalk, but the driver and the people helping her could cover their conscience, set acquittal, and bear no liability! Where was justice??
I remembered a few days after the accident, I dreamed that my mother came back. I was really surprised and happy and asked her — wasn’t she dead? She replied to me that the body on that crosswalk was her flesh not her soul. I began to think about the meaning of existence, where we came from, why we were here, and where we would go. I also questioned why my mother was on earth for only 37 years, and my brother was only 7 years, where they were then after leaving this earth, and if there was a place for all the dead ones gathered. Being skeptical about Christianity, I tried to search for my answers in many ways except Christian way.
In the fall of 1987, I met a group of Christians in UK. Their cheerfulness, joy and love attracted me; I was moved at their gathering every time. But I had never given them my phone number because I was afraid that they would bother me, so only I could find them at that time.
Although I cautiously protected myself since I did not want to casually believe in the Lord Jesus, God was real and alive! He made all things work together. He gave me an opportunity to pray willingly toward the sky, “God, if You are real, please convince me.” Then a lot of things happened: the biggest storm in London in 25 years, the train accident, the cigarette incident, and etc. He made me be unable to deny His existence. Finally, I yielded to Him and willingly surrendered my life to Him at the age of 21 years old. With tears of repentance, I accepted the Lord Jesus as my personal savior. My life has changed ever since.
So far, my grandmother, father, stepmother and sisters all believe in Jesus Christ! I have been changed from someone hostile to God to someone respecting and loving to be near to Him. It’s a miracle! God really listens to prayers. If you are willing, He will let you experience His true existence.
