我身份的根源是什么?What are the roots of my identity and my heritage?

My identity and inheritance have many roots and I embrace them all. The bible says:

'By the grace of God, I am what I am and His grace to me was not without effect. But I laboured more than all of them, yet not I, the grace of God is with me.' 1 Corinthians 15:10

I was born and grew up in Hong Kong, my up bring was very much rotoed within the Hong Kongese; Cantonese dialect and South Chinese culture.

I immgranted to the UK in 1989, so my adopted cultural root is British. I loved in London in the last 30 years so I am very much a Londoner, apprepiate diverse make up of a city. 

My spiritual root is as the daughter of the most high king - God almighty and I am a citizen of the Heavenly Kingdom. I am also a faithful servant; a God mother to a miracle child.

I went to a Lutheran primary school in Hong Kong. My current church is an independent Chinese Church in London, it emphasises on making discipleships, full immersion baptism and evangelising.

On earth, I am a daughter of an Cantonese opera singing mother and a kind functional alcoholic father. A sister to a gifted elder sister and two brothers - one is a alpha male another is an Asian cuisin chef and an aunty to one nephrew and three nieces.

 

谁浇灌我的根?Who waters my roots?

我在2014年经历了完全干旱的经历,这促使我寻找一种可以满足我需求的水源。我渴了水。圣经说:My experience of complete dryness in 2014 lead me to seek for a source of water that would fill me. I was thirsty for water. The bible says:

'The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strenght. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.' 

'Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life, whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty". John 6:35

'From his innermost being will flow the river of living water.' John 7:39

我的成长在哪里?Where will my growth leads to?

I was rooted in my Chinese cultural identity and the heritance from my worldly family, but none of them fullfill the desire of my heart. I knew my identity was more than what the world had to offer. I was seeking for a fruitful and purposeful life from my spiritual roots and the bible had the answers I was looking for:

'The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control.' Galatians 5:22

'Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.' Mattrew 5:5

'The humble will inherited the land, and delight themselves in abundance prosperity' Psalms 37:11

'For those who blessed by him will inherit the land and those cursed by him will be cut off.' Psalms 37:22

'Walk in the manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in knowledge of God. Colossians.' 1:10
