I guess it’s true that you will never feel time passing by so quickly when you are doing the things that you love. A couple of days ago a friend of mine reminded me about something. I totally forgot about it. I wasn’t even counting the days. He just simply reminded me that it’s already a year since I began working full-time.
My first day as a full-time worker in the church was September 1, 2014. I remember during that time that it didn’t feel different from what I was doing before. This time though, I was no longer a volunteer and I will have more time to really focus on working for the Lord. But there was tremendous pressure on my shoulders. The pressure did not really come from external factors. It was just mainly because of my own expectation and what I really want to see and happen.
God is good. He is always good. Little did I know that all the pressure that I was experiencing was just his way of making me depend on him more and just rely on Him. Deep within my heart, I just really want to reach out to more people and share Jesus to them. I just want to listen to stories of singles being transformed all because of the grace and power of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So many things happened that I couldn’t even try to write them all down. If you’ve been following my posts, I haven’t even been able to write a blog entry for the past couple of months due to so many things. Last August was one tiring, but fulfilling week for me. Every week I was preaching. Last August 23, 2015 was my first time to speak in our Sunday morning services. It was a great experience and I learn a lot. Heard from people as well that they were blessed with the message and I give the glory all to the Lord.
What I’m just really trying to say is that I enjoy what I am doing right now. I needed to sacrifice my career and even take a lower salary. It was all part of losing my life and saving it for something greater in return. It’s been a year since I went full-time. I thank God for calling me into his service. I am excited for another year to become part of His work. I’m really looking forward to planning for 2016, and what the Lord will be doing in and through us. To Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
