In the past, I thought that I was capable of doing anything and superb at speaking doctrines. This time when God’s family required us to write communication articles on life experience to testify about God, however, I was at my wits’ end, not knowing where to begin to write. I felt I was empty within, unable to write any true knowledge or experience about God. I merely stared blankly and worried futilely. I wrote an article again and again, and after a whole day, it was still unfinished. Finally, I managed to put together an article with several days’ efforts and handed it in. But it was returned to me. Now I became passive, thinking, “It seems that I can’t write a good article. I only have such a quality.” On that night, I tossed and turned in bed and couldn’t fall asleep. I felt so distressed as to burst into weeping. In my depression, I prayed to God earnestly. Thank God that he inspired me: “What does God perfect of man? Isn’t it man’s faith and perseverance that he perfects? Isn’t it according to man’s resolution that he perfects man? Isn’t it according to man’s lacks that he supplies man?” I was suddenly enlightened. I came to understand God’s will, knowing that God has his kind intention in making such a requirement of us. It is just to exercise us and improve our qualities and make us see our lack and deficiencies through writing articles, so that we can know ourselves, have ourselves transformed, and make up for our lack. I realized that we should be able to testify about God not only by word of mouth but also on paper; only thus can we better testify about God and cause more people to be edified. Thank God! What God does is so good! And so practical! I will strive to make progress and write good articles, so as to live up to God’s expectations of me.
