The Prodigal Son Has Returned...

I'm truly glad that my brother is going back to church, not my biological brother, but my godbrother, Eugene.

I went and meet up with Eugene this afternoon and I asked him about his second sister's health condition. He told me that his sister immune system is attacking her and there's nothing much to do except leaving everything into the Lord's hand. He took his sister to church last Sunday and even asking me to visit his church someday.

Wow, for the first time, Eugene is asking me to go to church ever since I known him donkey years.

Life challengers and trials he has and are growing through, the Lord have touched and opened his heart.

I've known Eugene for many years and through the years we have struck a beautiful and loving friendship. I have always looked up to him for advice and guidance. The many advice he has given were wise enough for me to go through life.

Knowingly he was a back slider Christian, many times I asked him to return to church. He told me he was disappointed of being a Christian and there was nothing much I can do, except to bend my knees.

From the many blogs entries he posted about his surprise meetings with ex-church members, his sleepless nights and melodrama in his family, he realised that he it's time to return to God.

The Lord answer me for such a long time, the wonder and power of prayer! Praise The Lord!

Ps. Eugene, I would like to share this two verses which hopefully will inspires you.

James 1:2-3 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and
not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future, declares
the Lord.
