Real Peace - Cynthia Lui
Hello everyone, I am Cynthia. I am glad to have the opportunity to share my faith in the Lord Jesus with you today. I believed in Jesus on October 27, 1989. Do you know that there was an earthquake of 6.9 magnitude at San Francisco on October 17, 1989? I accepted the Lord Jesus at ten days later after that earthquake.
My primary and secondary schools were Christian schools. I was familiar with Christianity, gospel, and church fellowship. I was not opposed to Christians and also thought they were nice people. However, I always felt I did not need to believe in the Lord Jesus because I wasn’t in gang and wasn’t a bad person.
In the July of 1989, my family immigrated to the United States. Perhaps due to changes in the environment and language, we often felt helpless and anxious. After three months hard transition period, when our life was gradually getting on track, an earthquake happened and made me feel that life was not secure. After the earthquake, my home had been without water supply and electricity for two days, schools were suspended, and the whole Bay Area was in a panic. At that time, I questioned that we immigrated to the United States in pursuit of a better life, why things were going like that. When schools resumed, the first news that we heard was a Chinese student’s mother was hit by a falling electric light post and died in the earthquake. Although my family was not injured in the earthquake, I recognized that death was not as distant as I imagined; life was really transient.
Later on, one of my classmates took me to a gospel meeting. My first reaction was “These things again!” But when I thought more about it, I decided to believe in the Lord Jesus because I realized if I had God to rely on, I didn’t have to panic anymore in my life; even facing of death, I would know where I would go. If you ask me what has changed since I believed in Jesus, I would say not much different except there is real peace in my heart because I know that no matter what happens, God is my support. I wish you can get the real peace as well!
