We just finished our 7 Day prayer and fasting as a church.
Let me break it down spiritually and physically.
- Physically I was hungry =p. Lost some kgs so it’s a good thing hahaha.
- Spiritually it was great. In a nut shell in conjunction to what I feel God spoke to me personally and ministry wise (which is the year 2009 is the “make it” or “break it” year) I felt God spoke to me about “starting right or miss out”. I mean think about it, if we start our day right with God (quiet time) the rest of the day would be perfect. Not that you won’t have challenges along the way but the strength, peace, grace, mercy, love etc of God is with you as you go through your day. Why? Coz you started your day right. Now this about this, how much more if you start youryear right?
It was a dinner blessed by Roger, the dad of our youngest intern whose name is Eu Wyn, and had my favorite Jack Daniel Burger! It was amazing. I want to thank Manchester United for if it wasn’t for them thrashing
Well today starts the 1st week of our Change Album recording. So it’s official. Cuza goes first so do keep him in prayers that he delivers the best in him for this album.
Yesterday me and Jude were doing guide tracks (What are guide tracks? They are songs that should not be heard online due to bad recording. For drummers only =p). We did a video blog, so you’ll probably see it online soon.
It short, the change album will be coming out in the middle of the year so please be excited!
Anyway, I led worship last weekend and had a conversation with God based on Ps 23.
Now most of us know what Ps 23 talks about. It’s where it famously starts with
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want”.
One of my challenges this year that I agree to work on is really pray and grow deeper in terms with the word of God. So I read onwards and stumble upon verse 6 where it goes
“Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life...”
I paused for a while and chatted with God a bit and asked Him “Why couldn’t goodness and love go ahead instead of following?” Not that I doubted His word but I guess its just one of those ways you use if you want to hear God speak back juicy stuff. You got to ask questions! =)
So I asked and He immediately replied (Love Him=)) and this is what He told me to think of.
In life, we move forward. Our life moves forward not backwards.
Imagine if goodness and love do go ahead of us, in other words we follow. Now there’s no guarantee of what life may bring tomorrow or maybe the next few hours so if we fall somewhere we “sort-of” miss out because goodness and love was ahead of us. Its like having 2 of your best buddies run a head of you to get movie tickets where along the way you tripped over the pavement and there was no-one behind you to help you out because your buddies are in front of you.
But lets say, the same incident as the first, goodness and love follow us all the days of our lives that when we fall, we sure won’t miss it.
Wow, to me that was comforting. I hope it is to you too.
I don’t know where your journey is today but be at peace that you won’t miss out the goodness and love of God. And even if you feel like it’s ahead of you or you’re falling behind, know that our God the Father is watching, turns back, picks you up and puts you on top of His shoulders.
That’s the God I love and that’s the God I serve.
