been feeling melancholic the past few days. and also wasn't feeling too good in terms of a rest. the days had been really draggy. but had the song 'i'll be here' by steven curtis chapman playing in my head and on the comp as well + singing + guitar. haha... my simple entertainment.
ocf had a bgr talk and it was very well done by uncle vincent. he split us into 6 groups for each to present a different scenario. and it was really hilarious. what can you make up in 5 minutes?
seriously, we just laughed and laughed at the creativity and talent and sportingness.
the issues presented in the sketches are issues that we have to deal with in relationships. uncle vincent talked about many issues comprising questions that we had sent earlier. these are just a few of what i learnt.
uncle vincent talked about what it is, getting together with a non-chistian and later when the non-chistian accepts Jesus, won't he/she ask you in return, why did you get together with me when it is not enouraged at all in the bible?
he also illustrated that it is easier to pull down a person then to pull up a person. and that it is not in our control whether the person accepts or not. it is the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
he made clear the point about mix households. it is not a sin, but there are implications that we have to be careful of and that we do not stumble others.
and about God's will as well. how do we know? of course a line can't be drawn. God paints beautiful pictures in our lives. but there are guidelines or sort of a checklist.
honestly, it is a long drag of faith and patience especially when nearly your whole world is turning into pairs. but let us never get too proud and with a humble heart, realise and acknowledge not only just something called wisdom, but God's wisdom.
