Youth Renewed like the Eagle's (Psalm 103:5)
I was on a diet of canteen or hostel food and I could not be happier because of the fellowship I enjoyed with the students. This year was different from last year. When I started in Ranau last year, I struggled with my health for 3 months - perhaps a change of weather and environment and being allergic to dust and pollen and staying in a totally different house than what I used to in Kota Kinabalu. But 2016 could not have been better. Praise God for good health...He has redeemed my life from destruction and crowned me with lovingkindness and tender mercies (Ps 103:4) Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever (Ps 23). Speaking of dwelling in God's house, for sure I miss my former place of ministry or places of ministry in my Ranau church and in College but now I am back with my home church, with close friends and strong supporters. Yesterday, at least 5 members whispered to me that they wished that I would be back as pastor of the church. But I am enjoying my time serving the Lord. Oftentimes when people think serving the Lord means some gainful employment with a Christian organization or being busy with people, but serving the Lord means just that - serving the Lord. On Saturday I spent 5 hours from 3.30am to 8.30am with the Lord, praising and worshipping him for 2 hours, praying for an hour or so, and reading the Bible for 2 hours in the Lord. The Lord is served by our love for Him and the most precious thing to the Lord is our fellowship with Him.
