tough lesson to learn, at 2am in the morning with a major project pending in 36 hours. learning to say no. and learning not to put your own standards on people.
two weeks just flew by like that. its the end of spring break and i dread diving back into my sea of work. nevertheless, the best, most fulfilling and happiest spring break ever just because we saw a friend of ours whom we have been praying long and hard for, finally making a decision (all on her own) to give her life to Jesus. whhoooooooooo. plus, she also went ahead and took the next big step by getting baptized on easter sunday. talk about God being amazing. i would give up almost all the travelling in the world that i've done and many many other adventures just to see this happen over and over again in people's lives. now that you've tasted what is good, how can you ever go back to what was before. truly this is God being so real.
there's so much in me that wants to blurt out everything that has happened or is happening. its accumulating, but i'll just keep watch. God is definitely doing something here. and im glad im not the only one who is experiencing it. you hardly come across people who share the same spiritual mindset, spur you on, keep you accountable, and most importantly, able to pray with you. and when you find friends like these, you know they are a keeper.
things to take note of: 1. if you're asking for consuming fire, there needs to be sacrifices for the fire to consume. 2. fire transforms and changes everything it touches. 3. work is prayer. and prayer is work. being a christian is a full time job. 4. if you really call Him God, then its not about your rights anymore.
