Mom on her 90th birthday
8th July 2019

Miraculous Saving Grace of God

My mom had been a fervent ancestor and idol worshiper for all the days of her life until the last few miraculous days. All family members and friends who came to her wake service were surprised to see a Cross and Bible Verses accompanying my mom as she laid there in the living room, in the house that she spent decades worshiping idols!

On 30th July morning, a day after being admitted to the hospital for fluid retention in her body, my mom shocked us by suddenly singing ‘天堂是我家‘ in Chinese, loud and clear! She did not just sang it once but repeated the same song with enthusiasm to everyone who came to see her that day.

As she was singing this song, the Holy Spirit prompted me to take action, ‘This is the moment’! I asked my mom for permission to contact Pastor Grace, a family friend. My mom had earlier rejected her several times when she wanted to visit her, saying that she did not want to leave her faith at this old age. Praise God that she finally said ‘yes’! The sudden change of mind was a miracle!

When the Pastor came, my mom sang the same song for her too and told the Pastor that Heaven is beautiful because her late husband told her about it. Without hesitation she said the sinners' prayer and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. As everything happened so suddenly, some family members thought that she would probably change her mind the next day, thinking she could have agreed to it at the spur of the moment.

Glory to God! The next day she was firm about her decision when asked by the Pastor and she was baptized and took Holy Communion in the hospital. I was in awe as I witnessed her faith , trusting God in her last days and her complete surrender to God which brought her peace.

She told me Heaven is beautiful and she wanted to go there. She also wished that she could breathe her last with no struggle, best if she could go peacefully in her sleep. I explained to her that now she is a child of God, the Holy Spirit is in her. Jesus loves her and He will surely hear if she asks. We talked about Jesus’ saving grace and His abundant love for her. I explained to my mom how she could pray to Jesus to tell Him her wishes. 

My mom had gone back to the Lord on Sunday 4th August 2019 @ 7am, breathing her last breath in her sleep in a peaceful manner just as she had wished it would be. Praise God for her wish granted.

God is merciful and faithful. The song which my mother had suddenly sang that day was a song she learnt in church near her house, when she was a little girl of 6 or 8 years old. My mom was on a detour for 82 long years. But God is in control. He never give up on my mother.  He patiently waited for her to come back, with His arms opening wide, waiting to receive her, not willing anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance. This is our God!  Hallelujah! 

This is God’s love and His miraculous saving grace. All glory be our God Almighty, amen.
