Created to Do the Impossible

November 23, 2008

Nov. 15th, 2008, HQ Church, Cheong Pa Dong Seoul, Korea

Many people in our lives, many archangels, will come and try to tell you and try to convince you that you cannot do something that looks impossible, that you don’t have the potential to make that thing come to pass or make it possible. But our task and our quest is to understand and believe that God has given us the power to do what is seemingly impossible and to make that into a reality and return that glory to God. Brothers and sisters, if we can do that, I do believe that we will find ourselves with more victory, more illumination and more peace, and we will live that blessed life; we will be a greater blessing to this world.

Also, it’s very interesting that when people have a dream, often times they have no idea how they are going to accomplish it. But amazingly with their heart and their mind focused on it, many times tremendous ingenuity takes place. Inventiveness, new ideas, new inspirations can come.

Welcoming remarks (Yeon Ah Nim):

Good afternoon, brothers and sisters. It is a beautiful autumn day. As leaves change to yellow and red, I hope that our hearts are also warmed and transformed by the power of True Parents’ and God’s love and blessing. Brothers and sisters, we are always honored to have you here in this sanctuary, and for those who are joining us through the Internet; we are also welcoming you as well. Welcome brothers, and welcome sisters.

The Overcoming Power of Faith

November 12, 2008

November 1st 2008, Chungpadong Church, Seoul, Korea

See, God does test our faith in our life, He absolutely does, but when we make it through, we will be stronger. We then will have more self-esteem, more confidence, we’ll be able to overcome the next obstacle with more fortitude and strength. … to have that kind of confidence in your own self, but then to extend it to others, to be able to un-handicap another mind, another heart, another low self-esteem and bring that to a higher self-esteem.

Yeon Ah Nim’s Welcoming Remarks:

Good afternoon, brothers and sisters. (Good afternoon!)
Last thursday was the 49th True Children’s Day. True Father said that True Children’s Day is the day that fallen people should praise the most. On the foundation of True Parents’ coming, True Father could finally restore the position of true children in front of God.
Today we are really happy and honored to have all of you here with us in this sanctuary and for those who are joining with us via internet, we are welcoming you as well.
Welcome brothers and welcome sisters!

Hyung Jin Nim’s Welcoming Remarks:
Welcome brothers and sisters on this beautiful Saturday. It’s autumn! It’s autumn! Give it up for autumn! (Applause) We love autumn.

Brothers and sisters, today we are going to share from Cheong Seong Gyeong Pg. 1479. In the section on ‘original human nature and true lifestyle’, Father says, “Loving minds always try to sacrifice, to concede and to give and give again. Even if you perform the most generous act of all and then check with your loving mind, it would answer, ‘You need to do more.’ ”

In our life of faith, in our life of frienship, in our life of encouraging and helping each other, this really rings true with all of us. There are times when we need to help others, to really encourage others, help them get up and get through a certain obstacle. And during those times we sometimes may feel depleted ourselves. But at times if we can be that support to that person – maybe that person was sent to you, maybe that person is just a passerby – but if we can do that for that person, for that community, etc.. we can make a lasting impact on eternal lives.

Father is always telling us to remember this heart, this heart of generosity, one of the main principles of every religion, we can see. And so, Father is asking us also to practice that kind of generous heart, a loving mind, really being able to practice to live for others, to share with others, etc..

Brothers and sisters, before we start service, it is always so important to remember who we are and whose we are. It is so important that we see ourselves from the right perspective, and that is to see ourselves as every day getting more victorious, more illuminated, more filled with peace, being able to shed brighter and brighter light for this world and for our communities.

It’s always important to be able to visualize ourselves improving, visualize ourselves getting better, getting to higher levels of school, academics, work and studies, whatever we are putting our minds at. It’s always so important to see and envision our future in a positive way, to know that that will come to pass and to walk that course.

Brothers and sisters, let us always remember – when we look at ourselves from a principle perspective – that humankind originally had that incredible value, that cosmic value, unique value, divine value, that identity and the purpose, the purpose to truly be able to be equal partners with Almighty God. And that is an awsome purpose, awsome task!
In our lives today what does that mean? That means really be able to bring God joy in our lives, bring other people joy, helping others reach that potential of truly being valuable, filled with identity, filled with purpose and to share that with other people as well.

Love So Amazing

November 12, 2008

Love held me closely
And set me free
Carried my weakness to Calvary

Parents redeemer
You called me son
Love so amazing
Love till the end

Love so amazing
Love so divine
To call You master
To call You mine
When my heart was broken
You mended me
Love so amazing
Your love for me

Oh~

Your love strong and true
Your love rich and pure
Your love so complete
How I live for Your love,
live for Your love for me

… although I’m Hyung Jin Nim’s wife, I truly respect him as a person. He does not have any selfish motivation in all that he does. I know that he is someone who would rather be happy living quietly in the countryside, and I’m sure you guys all agree with that. [Laughter.] Yet, he’s here for True Parents; he’s here for us, brothers and sisters.

Welcome Remarks:
Good afternoon brothers and sisters! (Good afternoon!). Thank you.
This week we went to Hiroshima in Japan and Hyung Jin Nim shared our vision with Japanese members. We are always honored to have you here in this sanctuary, and for those who are joining with us via internet; we are also welcoming you as well.
Welcome brothers, and welcome sisters.

Hyung Jin Nim

Welcome brothers and sisters. Good to see you again.
We’ve been out of the country so frequently this month. We feel like we haven’t been able to really pay attention to what’s happening at church but we’re so blessed that we’re finally able to come back. This time we did visit Hirsoshima and it was so amazing to actually see the history there.

I’ve heard a lot about nuclear debate and all these kind of discussions about atomic bombs but I’ve never experienced a place that was actually devastated by such an event. When we went to Hirsohima, we were able to visit some historic sites, places where buildings still remain. Also, we were able to visit the peace museum where it is displayed what kind of history that is there and also what kind of power human beings now hold in the hands, what kind of destiny and responsibility human beings have, when looking at this whole situation with the nuclear crisis. So it was just such an extremely eye opening experience. I’ve never actually felt this much moved by the whole discussion about nuclear technology, but this was just extremely eye opening.
