Delays are beautiful, in this world full of instants may you have the courage to wait intently, patiently, courageously, and actively. It’s purposely part of life. It takes a full season for fruit to mature and ripen. At times, we worry so much about how fast we’ll get there yet God is concerned about how strong we grow. Those pauses on your journey would help you in your growth. Just remain faithful, plant the seeds, pour your heart into it, and watch it grow. We work and God blesses us with the fruits. So it’s okay if you are experiencing delays. Perhaps you are prioritizing your goals and delaying your wants, you might be prioritizing your family and delaying your desires, prioritizing your growth and delaying your comfort, or prioritizing your studies and delaying your beats. You’ll reap what you sow; for every cause, there is an effect- it’s the law of nature. Endure and enjoy those delays! Take heart, by His grace, we’ll make it.

Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. Do not be decieved. God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will eternal life. Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

Friday Nights

The weather was gloomy, I looked outside and the gates were locked. The mood was different. I missed the aroma of your coffee, our deep conversation, and your sincere care for us. Friday nights, it wouldn’t be the same as before.

Just like John Piper said, “It’s amazing how many introverts go into the ministry. It’s amazing how many people go into the ministry who don’t really like to be with people.”
