是时候了!

很多人的印象是宗教使人消沉,使人对现世无所追求,人生没有意义,我对此一直不以为然。这也是为什么我喜欢Joel提醒给我们的应有的人生态度。

他说是时候了-------

Let me ask you, if you went to heaven tomorrow, is there something that the world would be missing out on? In other words, do you have a gift that you're not sharing with the world? Are there things in your heart that you're not pursuing because you're afraid? Or you think you're too old, too busy, or don't have what it takes? Well, now is the time to get out of your comfort zone and pursue what God has placed on the inside of you!

让我问你,如果你明天去天堂,这个世界将错过了什么?换句话说,你是否把你的天分和这个世界分享?这些事情在你的心里,你是因为害怕而不去追求?或者你觉得你太老了,太忙碌,或没有所具备的?那么,现在就是时候了,离开你的舒适区,去追求那个上帝放在你心里面的吧!

This is what the disciple Peter did. When he saw Jesus walking on the water he said, "Lord, let me do that." You can imagine that there were a thousand voices saying, "Peter, are you crazy? You can't walk on water." It's the same voice that says today, "You can't start your own business. You can't be in management. You can't write that book. You're going to get out there and sink." Peter may have heard that still, small voice whispering, "Peter, you still should. God is in control. You're well able. You've got what it takes." And Peter got out of the boat and literally walked on the water.

这就是门徒彼得所做的。当他看见耶稣在水上行走,他说:“主啊,让我这样做。”你可以想像有1千个声音说:“彼得,你疯了吗?您不能在水上行走。”今天同样的声音说:“你无法启动自己的企业。你不能做管理。你不会写出书来。你会走出去而沉没。”彼得也许仍然听到这个声音,在耳边低语:“彼得,你仍然应该去做。神在掌管。你能行。你具备所需的。”彼得就从船上出来,在水面上行走。

What "boat" do you need to get out of today? What comfort zone is holding you back from experiencing all that God has placed in your heart? Friend, life is very short. Make sure you're sharing your gift with the world. If you're not passionate about what you are doing or passionate about your career, then you need to consider making changes. We're all going to have some mundane days, but if you're going year after year not enjoying your career, not fulfilled, not satisfied, maybe your main gift is lying dormant. Remember, your gifting is a part of your purpose. No matter how successful
you are, if you're not fulfilling your purpose, you will feel that sense of dissatisfaction. Don't waste another day because now is the time to press forward and fulfill what God has placed within you!

什么样的“船”是你需要摆脱的呢?什么样的舒适区阻挡了你去经历那神放在你心里的一切呢?朋友,生命是很短的。确保您把你的天分和世界分享。如果你对自己所做的没有激情,或对你的职业生涯缺乏热情,那么你需要考虑作出修改。我们都将会有一些平凡的日子,但如果年复一年你都不能享受您的职业生涯,无所成就,不满意,也许你的主要天分冬眠去了。记住,你的天分是你人生目的的一部分。无论你多么成功,如果你不履行你的目的,你就会有不满足感。不要浪费一天的时间,因为现在是时候了,向前进一步,实现上帝放在你心中的!

Be very careful, then, how you live─not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16, NIV).

你们要谨慎行事,不要像愚昧人,当像智慧人。要爱惜光阴,因为现今的世代邪恶
(以弗所书5:15-16)。

看了这个,就想起了教会的一位杭州漂亮的姐妹,她很有舞蹈天分,在国内评过杭州小姐第二名,然而在加拿大她的天分被埋没,许多年只是为生活而挣扎,不光是她自己不快乐,所有看到她的人都觉得可惜。今年她开始在小区办起少儿舞蹈班,一下就很火热,人人都为她的起步而高兴。

军在失业期间曾找到一份和自己专业不符的工作,很不开心。所有的声音告诉他,有钱挣就好。他听从自己内心的呼唤,感谢神给家里的恩典,暂时不缺钱,就没有继续。即使牧师也说,谦卑一些,找个低一些的工作,他听从了,面试5分钟就出来了,人家说他Overqualified. 他一点也没有觉得可惜。当真正的呼唤来的时候,他竟然是那样奋不顾身,多大的苦都能吃,为此真的应该称谢神。

这两天休息,想着没事,就发了三分简历,想了解一下自己的实力。昨天就有电话来。她问我既然有工作为什么要换,我说我很有分析的才能,虽然目前的工作也需要很多这些技能,但我期望能做一个专职的分析员,将我的技能充分发挥。其实并没有想尽快换工作,只是了解一下市场和思考一下自己将来的方向。所以有人能这样鼓励的时候,就可以让自己走得更远。
