I choose to love you!

We all know the commandment "Love one another" very well and have heard numerous sermons on exactly this topic and yet, when I am faced with a situation in the team where I am irritated or upset about something, the last thing I think about is to love my teammate.

God's ways are better than our ways!

Ps25:1-10

"In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, Lord, are good. Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant. "

Marvellous Malaysia!

After two weeks in Malaysia, I can honestly say that if anyone were to tell me the rest of the year's program has been cancelled and that we had to stay there until the end of the journey, I would not have minded! My heart is full of praise as sit here and try to put in words what I am currently feeling, so instead of giving a low down on our daily activities, I thought of sharing a bit of where my heart is at...

Act on the calling, not the need...

Looking around me I see so much hurt, so much hunger, so much poverty and so many people reaching out for just a little bit of help and I cannot but feel the urgency to address their immediate needs. However, what I have learned during my time in India is that there is a difference to responding to the need and acting on the calling.
