I sat on the bench the usual that i do,
and here he comes sitting with me too.

He looked so handsome, so prim and proper,
eloquent in his speech but why does his eyes hardly marvel?

I am  not an accountant by profession but it is what I am working on today.

I wanted to be one before, but due to teenage foolishness I was then settled for something else.

The thought of not being the best sank in and it so opted me to walk on mediocrity.
Just right or it could go this way or any other way – what matter is; it will be okay. Just okay.

Somehow the idea of working for or striving isn’t much of my concern, maybe it does, but just in my wishful thinking.

I received this book as a Christmas gift from a friend. The same book is used as reference in the Church’s Young-Professional Assembly. I learned a lot of things here that helps me spiritually.

Here are some of its thought-provoking words;

The pursuit of holiness must be anchored in the grace of God; otherwise it is doomed to failure. – p12

Even our best works are shot through with sin – with varying degrees of impure motives and lots of imperfect performance. p18

Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good that your are beyond the need of God’s grace. – p19

On the 6th and last night of prayer and fasting, after the Senior Pastor led the prayer for the leaders, he reminded the congregation of the Church’s mission;

“To make Christ Committed Followers who will make Christ Committed Followers” which is inspired by Matthew 28: 19-20.

Then he said to those who  already have a discipleship group (D-group/small group) to lead a discipleship group under them. It is normal for him to encourage his flock to share the gospel to another being and led others into knowing God too, but what he said after struck me. He says something like this;

“Start your own D-group, it doesn’t matter if it bears the name of our church as long as it is about the truth of Christ – It bears the name of Jesus.

That’s when I know that the church is not after membership, not after recognition, not after fame, not after the credits of accomplishment but is in the business of MAKING CHRIST KNOWN. (more…)

Joshua, son of  nun, and the Israelites are commanded by the Lord to cross the Jordan River.

(8)Tell the priests who carry the ark of the covenant: ‘When you reach the edge of the Jordan’s waters, go and stand in the river.”…

(15)Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest. Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, (16) the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away, at a town called Adam in the vicinity of Zarethan, while the water flowing down to the Sea of the Arabah (the Salt Sea ) was completely cut off. So the people crossed over opposite Jericho. (17) The priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan, while all Israel passed by until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground.
