A LOVE STORY
One day, I woke early in the morning to watch the
sunrise. The beauty of God's creation is beyond
description. As I watched, I praised God for His
beautiful work. As I sat there, I felt the Lord's
presence with me.
He asked me, "Do you love me?" I answered, "Of

and soul. It never matters what we sound like. And
praising God is not always with a song, but when
we are persecuted, we give God praise with our words
So I answered, "Though I could not physically
sing, I would still praise Your Name.
And the Lord asked, "Do you really love Me?" With
courage and a strong conviction, I answered boldly,
" Yes Lord! I love You because You are the One and
true God!" I thought I had answered well, but ....
God asked, "THEN WHY DO YOU SIN?"
