Today I went to the church where I know the pastor really well. People at this church are all Japanese, and all are very warm. Everybody at this church prays for Hajime. Of course, many people, and people from different churches also are praying for him. It is so appreciating. Thank you very much.
During the service, I felt God’s existence. He was standing by Hajime’s bed, and lifting Hajime up by putting His hands on Hajime’s back. Hajime’s face looked very refreshed and was just waking up. That scene was very warm, and orange light was pouring on. At that moment, I realized that it is alright to cry at God’s present. Then my tears welled up.
Immediately, I noticed that next to Hajime, there is always God’s presence.
I felt that God is carrying forward Hajime’s life in the very best way. “Hajime is being led by God…” I felt that way. I myself was the one who was being surrounded by God’s comfort, and my heart was softened.
Going to any direction would be fine! Because God is with us...
