Reflection

The days seem to pass quickly as I slowly but surely get sucked into my work.

Number one on the To-do list:

Re-establish a Quiet Time at the office.

This I was reminded from singing the song "Quiet Time" at 1st service today.

But that's just a quadrant 1 thing. The bigger questions still float in my mind.

Today the church bulletin was distributed together with a flyer that stated there were full time ministry positions in the church that urgently needed to be filled up. And I was brought back to 2 months ago when I grappled with entering full-time ministry and somehow I feel disappointed with myself that I didn't just go straight in without thinking.

Today I'm marching to quite a different tune, and pastor's constant reminders struck me.

The immediacy of the kingdom.

And I realised how I was almost forgetting the reason(s) I had cooked up for myself as to why I needed a secular job first.

As it is now I've been learning, learning about the new job, the new environment, the new lingo, the new office politics space

So what happens when you keep on having to stay back and miss really edifying church-related meetings you would like to go for?

Pray that won't happen too often

And yes, I also pray to be more organized in my work so I don't freak out and leave things undone. This week's schedule is already packed!
