This about us page is not just about Who I am and why I started this Christian website. It's also about the Person whose marvellous love makes me who I am today.
My name is Flora Tan and this is my personal website. I am a simple Christian living everyday in the presence of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I love Him.
But most amazing of all is that He loves me. And He loved me even before I knew Him. Awesome!
More than 40 years ago when I was a teenager, His marvellous love drew me to Him in a simple church meeting. I heard about His sacrificial love for me; how He who has no sin, suffered and died on the cross for me, a sinner. I acknowledged Him as my Saviour that day.
Strangely, though I received Him as my Saviour, He was not Lord of my life. I wanted salvation but on the other hand, I wanted to retain control of my life; to live life my way.
For one full year, I struggled until...finally, one day, I fully surrendered my life to Him and received Him not only as my Saviour but also as the Lord of my life.
Since then there was no turning back.
Today, I am still amazed by His love for me; He has been my companion through life's journey. He provided for all my needs and is my shield and defender in time of danger. He nourishes my soul through His word and strengthens me by His joy in me.
This is a hymn that I sang when I first became a Christian and now that I'm 60 year old, I still find that it never fails to speak to me.
I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.
O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
Is my Savior’s love for me!
For me it was in the garden
He prayed: “Not My will, but Thine.”
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat drops of blood for mine.
In pity angels beheld Him,
And came from the world of light
To comfort Him in the sorrows
He bore for my soul that night.
He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calvary,
And suffered and died alone.
When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
’Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me.
