What am I doing here?
That is what I am always asking myself these past few weeks. Life in the country makes me feel so isolated. I realized that I am now an extrovert ever since I’ve been around people in Tamworth. An extrovert in an isolated place can be challenging.
I’ve been thinking what I really want to do as a hobby. All of the activities I’ve thought of involve interacting with people. I’d rather have coffee with a friend than have movie marathon alone. I’d rather watch news so I would feel connected to the world rather than watch clips on youtube. It’s a good thing that God has given me this opportunity to go and share the Gospel. It’s good that a church has connected me with people in a nearby area to have bible study with. I need this as much as they need it.. :)
It’s been a miracle come to think of it. The church which rejected my call for help telling me that they don’t really cater to discouraged Christians but to lost youths was the church which connected me to this. I still don’t have a regular group that I could ask for help and prayer. I felt very much alone in this. But the miracle is–this doesn’t stop me from driving 40km to this area despite the weather condition just to share Jesus with others. Thank God for Hillsong TV, for podcasts and vidcasts from all these Christian churches. Thank God that there is still a church in my area–it’s not the one I would normally go to but God is still present in that church. Come to think of it–they are my group now. It gives me a warm feeling to be with these people just to see them present at church. I feel happy every Friday night at church. Thank You Lord for sending me help in different ways.
Being in the country paves the way for me to trust God in a deeper level. I see another part of what it’s like to trust God completely. It’s quite new to me but I have a good feeling about this–makes me feel at peace, makes me feel like heaven.
