Yesterday was Terrence’s last day with us in Singapore and thank God for the extended opportunity that He provided for us to further explained the Gospel to him before he departed.
Now can only pray and await for those sown ‘seeds’ of truth to grow in His time.
There was a moment in our conversation where he threw me a question, “What is the difference now that God is in your life?”
To be honest, I was caught off guard. Not becos I was unprepared, but there was just too much to share and wasn’t sure where to begin and the aspects to which would have been relevant to him .
Anyhow I plucked up and shared very briefly…
(1) Addiction: Back then, I was bounded by an unhealthy addiction to alcoholism and smoking, just to name a few. But now, I am addicted to the reading of His word, His love and work. Maybe the only unhealthy one I have now is my morning prescription of brewed aromatic coffee =p
(2) Values: Back then, anything goes. I wasn’t even aware of the word ‘values’ or what I even stood for. But now, love, integrity and holiness are just some of my new found values that have been re-defining and influencing who I am and shaping my life.
(3) Purpose: Back then, just happy, enjoy my life and dun back-stab people can oredi… But now, He has given me an exciting, global and eternal purpose to live for! Making a difference in the lives of those around for His Great Commission. Now everyday is an adventurous journey in trudging forward towards His goal for me- my destiny/calling.
Yeah! Sure glad that I could have been a part of God’s saving mission for Terrence and to be used by Him. Now just have to await and see how God will do His part =)
