Sunday, January 22, 2012
It’s been over a year now since I have updated my blog. There were lots of reasons for this and mostly due to busy-ness and sometimes laziness. We also moved to our newly rented house and it kept me very busy adjusting to the new environment. Last year also was Reuel’s most travelled year in his entire career life which meant in return that I was left alone with the kids most of the time. Conclusively, 2011 was more prosperous and abundant year for us compared to previous years.
I have so much to write if time permits me. But, I want to start this with our church’s theme this year: GROWING UP IN ALL THINGS IN 2012 which is an excerpt from the book of Ephesians 4:15-16. With this theme, I and Reuel committed ourselves once again to be diligent in attending the morning and afternoon Sunday services and eventually becoming involve in the ministry. We’re planning also to start having a ministry one at a time. And, I’m glad that I find one where I can use my talent and skills to serve the Lord. I was asked by Pastor Bong if I could join the Creative Media team where I was assigned to help for the Audio-Video Presentation (AVP) in the church. I got excited because I know I can do it and this is what I wanted to do but I was also nervous that I might not be able to meet the deadlines and fail God again. But who knows? Maybe this is where I can excel and serve the Lord. I hope so…
We also started our Sunday commitment last January 15 by attending the whole-day service and by partaking the Me-Mo (families with a surname that starts with this letter) Family presentation. Each one of us was asked for our favorite verses for us to testify. Reuel and I did backup singing also during the congregation singing. Imagine that! I sang in front of people, can’t believe it (I don’t know how to sing or should I say I’m flat when I sing)… hahaha. But it’s for the glory of GOD and I have made it!
My verse was in 1 Corinthians 10:13…
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
It was a very tiring day because we need to come back again for the afternoon service but I was also happy and appease.
