Get Ready to Meet my love, Jamie Sullivan

I had long ago fall in love with a girl named Jamie Sullivan (played by Mandy Moore) in a movie called A Walk to Remember; story based on a bestselling author, Nicholas Sparks. She is so wonderful, sweet, simple, and strong and knows how to bring out the best in someone else’s life. Oh Jamie, I’m so in love with you.

When I was in college, I imagined that one day I might find someone like her. I want to believe that she was out there. So I always prepare a song to sing for her. But as you might suspect, she seems impossible to appear. She gave no indication, however, when she might suddenly come into my life. Maybe not, I said to myself. But what if she’s here all of a sudden, I don’t know. All I care was that I want to practice the song as well as I could, so that if she might appear; maybe during early morning class, afternoon lunch at canteen or late evening after football –  I’m ready to impress her with my voice. I know what I’ll do. I’ll just keep practicing the song all the time!

But it was my imagination…
something that I hope will happen...
to meet Jamie Sullivan.

Today I long for something else. Something that is much more real and very significant in my life [In our life if you want to join me]. That is; the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Both the Old and the New Testaments are filled with promises of the second coming. Paul Lee Tan writes, “There are 1,845 references to it in the Old Testament… of the 260 chapters in the entire New Testament, there are 318 references to the second coming, or 1 out of 30 verses. 23 of the 27 New Testament books refer to this great event… For every prophesy on the 1st coming of Christ, there are 8 on Christ’s 2nd coming.” This is amazing! And perhaps one of the most important event in the Universe (after the Cross)! And it’s real! Oh Jesus, I’m longing for you.

Jesus is coming. He said, “When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am” (John 14:3). He may come any time now. “You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected” (Matthew 24:44). No matter when that grand event maybe, He will surely come. “Yes, I am coming soon!” (Revelation 22:20).

The question now is, will you be ready when He come? Have you prepare ‘a song to sing’ for Him? To those who are so-called ‘not prepared’, those who have rejected the claims of Jesus (as King and Savior) will face eternal punishment, as the Bible tell us, in hell. But for those who have believed in the gospel ‘of repentance toward God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ’ (Acts 20:21ESV), the so-called ‘prepared’ followers, rejoice! Do not fear, for you will live for eternity in the presence of God in Heaven. You will discover that in God’s presence ‘there is fullness of joy’ and at His ‘right hand are pleasures forevermore’ (Psalm 16:11ESV).

This is not the production of imagination, this is God’s promises that will come true…
this is something that I’m expected to surely happen…
to meet the Living God, the victorious King.
Amen! Come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20)

    If Life as simple as it can be.
    Nothing will be learnt.
    Jamie died in the end of the story.
    After coming into a life of a lost man.
    Like God Himself
    He will always come to us.
    If u feel pain.He is not to blame.
    He is to be thankful for.
    For the pain we feel
    Is part of life He created.
    Knowing pain.
    Knowing life.
    It made u stronger.
    But what made u and I stronger?
    It is the love and bless and strength from GOD
    Because all of these...it is eternal.

    'But what made u and I stronger?
    It is the love and bless and strength from GOD
    Because all of these...it is eternal.'
