When you’re slipping away…

First Sunday back in Hong Kong, Communion Sunday, church at the Marriot, it was good to be back into the worship, listen to Brett’s sermon and be with amazing people.

While we were worshipping, I was thinking about how I would like to bring Danae, Johnny B, Prince and my friends from People to People to my church. Then I was reminded of the day we had a short break before big gathering to small group gathering.. Danae and I sat on the lawn and talked about our faith, Johnny B joined us shortly after as well. We were late to the small group gathering but it doesn’t matter because we felt like we got to know each other on another level.

Point being said, when I was thinking about how amazing it would be to have them worship the God with me under the same roof, for them to meet my friends. God reminded me that during that time, I was slipping away. I haven’t been to church in a week or two, I haven’t been around people who could talk to me and I was just falling away without noticing.

He knew I was falling away and what does he do? He puts people in my life that can remind me of Him. People in my life that I can share my faith with and be reminded that I should not hold back my faith even if it means risking ignorance towards myself. Reminded that I have to go and share God’s love, share His word.

It was a good reminder and now that I look back, God is great and I’m so grateful He allowed them to be a part of my life.

Everytime you are falling away, God has a way of pulling you back. Whether that involves pain sometimes, struggles and simply putting people in your life. Trust in Him, take one step at a time.
