Service later :/
To tell the truth, I’m still not very used to the tertiary style. Shreedhee asked me whether I still prefer Youth or tertiary. I still prefer Youth..
I remember in Youth, we’d meet up before going to service together.
I wonder if anyone here would forget to go?
And if anyone would feel so sian to go alone that he / she decided not to go anymore?
Ultimately yes, it’s about the heart and the heart desires.
But an idle mind is the devil’s playground.
How sure are we that during the train / bus journey there that someone would not think of such evil things against God etc?
Sure there’s discernment and we are to guard our hearts but.. how about those newer believers?
How about those people who are tired of serving?
I think one thing in youth that kept me going for service was the people.We do more than plugging our ears with music on the train.
We shared life, we connected with our visitors through actions, care and words.
Their joy in Christ was pure joy and bliss to me.
It was a sight to behold.
Though we are a noisy group ( haha ) but I think love was in the atmosphere. And it’s not just love for the people, God was also there. When two or more gathers, there the presence of God will be. The love for God, is more than incredible.
And I loved it.Which I do plug my ears very often nowadays since well, there’s particularly no one to talk to.
Talk to God?
Put your heart in peace?
Many a times I ride that dreaded train journey in loneliness.
I can’t expect everyone to meet up, since
- Everyone lives in different areas
- There surely will be people who are late
I think that’s the stronghold of our unity.Shreedhee said last time she would want to go back to youth but now she prefers tertiary. For me, my answer stays the same. If I had a chance, I’d still go back to youth. Yes, even if I had to start anew with different people. That’s different from living in the past people.
I’m not living in the past, I just miss it.After reading this, scold me if you want for holding to the past. But that is something I will never trade for.
