主耶穌說:「我留下平安給你們,我將我的平安賜給你們,我所賜的,不像世人所賜的,你們心裏不要憂愁,也不要膽怯。」(約翰福音十四:二十七)	
	初移民到美國紐約時,我雖然還未認識耶穌,但祂已給了我好多的普及恩典。雨落在義人的地上,也落在不義人的地上,日頭照好人也照歹人,空氣、雨水和陽光沒有分好或歹人去享用,是人都不可缺的莫大恩典。因為耶穌說:「你們聽過這樣的話,『要愛鄰居,恨仇敵。』但我告訴你們,要愛仇敵,為迫害你們的人禱告。這樣,你們才是天父的孩子。因為祂讓陽光照好人也照壞人,降雨給義人也給惡人。如果你們只愛那些愛你們的人,有什麼值得嘉獎的呢?就是稅吏也會這樣做。如果你們只問候自己的弟兄,有什麼特別呢?就是外族人也會這樣做。所以,你們要純全,正如你們的天父是純全的。」(馬太福音五:四十三至四十八)所以無論您是否基督徒都能享受的恩典,便稱之為普及恩典。	
	來美那時是九十年代,經濟大衰退,找工並不容易。我的教育程度祇是小學五年級,後來再進修四年英文夜校,這樣的學歷我可以尋找一份怎樣的工作呢?一般好像我這樣文化水準,可能找到的工作是當保姆、清潔女工、製衣廠車工,在餐館清潔、洗碗或打雜,便是我可以尋找工作的範圍了。後來,在免稅店工作,一份人工可養家綽綽有餘,假期又多,之前我要同時當上好幾份工,才能勉勉強強強養家。	
	但神又把我安排到一間酒店去做帶位的工作,一做便是三十年。酒店工作並不是一種什麼了不起的工作,但以自己的學歷和背景,如不是神的恩典施行在我身上,這並不是輕而易舉之事,我在什麼時候有此反省呢?之前我還以為是我個人的努力而得的。但我在酒店工作十年之後,就遇到有些經理或上司給我難題,說我英文不好,英語不流利,常常打擾經理、上司、同事和客人的溝通,便找人監視我怎樣工作和說話,時刻挑剔我的不是,經常給我寫投訴信,使我有很大的精神壓力和負擔。	
	但很多同事都很同情我,知道經理是不應該這樣對待我,他們這樣做是錯誤的。但我投訴無門,也不懂得投訴,但事後想:「神一定會知道這些事。」人在得意的時候,別人讚賞我,說:「你的成功是因為你自己的努力,才會有今日的成就。」此類的話語,便會使我飄飄然、沾沾自喜,往往就會忘記神的恩典,回想起來,有事發生在我身上,一定有神的心意。	
	事後想想若在十年前,我剛入行碰到這樣的事,我會怎辦?但是做了十年之後,膽子也較大了。因此,經理所提出的事情,我認為不成立,試用期也不過是三個月,那有做了十年之後,而不會做自己的工作?雖然英文不好,但經過十年在酒店工作的環境,英文總有些進步吧!認為經理的投訴,都是無理取鬧。回望過去,其實這是神給我給我功課,要常常自省和學習謙卑,領悟到不要忘記神的恩典,所以神允許這些事情發生。這十年是怎樣走過來的?那還不是神在後面扶持著我嗎?我怎能抹殺神的恩典?將榮耀歸回自己呢?雖然有時也有人對我講同樣恭維的說話,我不再沾沾自喜,要感謝上帝的恩典,將榮耀歸給祂。阿們!	
	而且這三十年來,神一直都看顧著我,無論我出我入,祂都保護著我,為何我要這樣說?因為我工作的時間和當值的班數沒有固定。雖然一日二十四小時,無論白天、黑夜或淩晨,我每個時段上班都有機會坐地鐵和行走在街道上。但卻並無遇到過什麼不好的事,別人都問我:「晚上你都敢回來上班嗎?」我相信這是神的保守和看護,是三十年之久都平安無事,不是三個月或三年。	
	還有一次的經歷,那是二○○八年,從全職轉做兼職。我當時並無求問神,當我轉工後,心中不平安,雖然福利並不少,但那年有同事被辭退。轉去那部門,我是最後一個,被辭退的機會最高,但要返回原單位,我就損失了優先權。自從我離開原先的工作崗位後,酒店仍然要填補人手不足的空缺。
	有一天,我原有的部門再次請人,我可以返回原來的部門,原有的部門也都歡迎我回去。不過我怕失去我的優先權,所以我不斷求問神,但得不到神的引領和回覆,做夢也夢不著,看聖經也看不到神所賜給我的話語,指示我應該回去原部門或維持留任?因為在那時工作對我來說還是很重要,我不能失去工作,如果被辭退的話,我就什麼都沒有,而且在當時再去尋找一份新的工作,要有同等的待遇,簡直不可能。	
	我為此事糾結了二到三個月。每天沒有睡好覺,腦海裡總是想著這件事,等待神所賜給我話語,留或走?再不決定的話,原部門不可能一直等著我不聘請別人。突然神就賜我一句話語說:「無論你在哪裡?我都與你同在。」那句話就在我靈修的桌子上。那時,我就肯定那是神給我的指示,實在是太好了,無論我在哪裡,祂都與我同在。我抱住一動不如一靜的心態,就跟神說:「神啊!這是你的承諾,無論我在哪裡,你都會與我同在。」當晚我便呼呼大睡,人也輕鬆了。	
	按照人的看法,以當時的情況,一定會轉回原部門做全職,不但不會被辭退,還可保住福利。但神的意念高過人的意念,我連明天會如何?也不知道。但神知,別人認為不安全,但因我有神所賜的話語,我就留在人所認為不安全的路線上。因為我心中有神的話語來作我的擔保,我還怕什麼呢?	
	時至今日,回望過去,証明我靠著神的話語作選擇是對的。由二○○八年到二○二○年間,是我《 生中工作最輕鬆和經理們合作最愉快、最被尊重和最自由的工作環境,而且工資的收益和福利跟原來的長工相比,不相上下。在二○二○年三月因疫情的關係,暫時退休,二○二一年三月中,正式退休,離開工作崗位。感謝神的帶領,榮耀歸給神!	
	無論在什麼情況下,不再像以前一樣,深信這是主耶穌賜我不一樣的生命。主耶穌說:「我留下平安給你們,我將我的平安賜給你們,我所賜的,不像世人所賜的,你們心裏不要憂愁,也不要膽怯。」(約翰福音十四:二十七)所以我現在每時每刻,心中都充滿著神所賜的平安與喜樂!祂必賜下平安喜樂給相信祂的人.因為神是信實的,這是祂的應許和承諾,我已經得到了,用語言和筆墨是無法來形容我這份內心的平安與喜樂!親愛的朋友們,您們也想得著這份心靈的平安與喜樂嗎?請快來相信主耶穌吧!(全文完)
 
無效的禱告
    │慈繩愛索
	有位信徒時常要求別人為她丈夫的得救禱告,而她本身卻是她丈夫不信主的原因之一。由於她脾氣暴躁,把耶穌推得遠遠的,使她丈夫無法接觸到他。後來牧師把她找來,婉轉的對她說:「妳的脾氣使得妳的禱告變成無效,這是希伯來書十二章一節所提到的罪。妳當求主幫助妳控制脾氣,否則你丈夫永遠不可能信主。」她果然照牧師的教導去做,願意順從聖靈的旨意。
	某天她丈夫不小心撞翻了新買的立燈,摔落在地上報銷了。他正等候河東獅吼,出其意外的,這回妻子卻在一旁若無其事地說:「親愛的,別把這事放在心上,我們可以存錢買一只更漂亮的立燈。」丈夫很訝異,說:「太太,妳變了。」她答:「是啊,我求主改掉我的壞脾氣。」丈夫說:「如果主有這樣大的本事,請妳也為我禱告,這樣的基督教正是我要找的!」信徒啊,如果你也有一些生活上的毛病,求主讓你改變。因為這些壞毛病,不但影響你的生活見證,也會使你的禱告變為無效。
二○二二年十月十五日
