Its been almost a month since my faith decision to transplant myself to another church.
The entire phase from the point of God’s revelation and to where He has led me now is almost unreal.
I would be lying if I said it was an easy process. In fact, it was one of the most difficult decision I had to face.
God matters to me
The opinion of others mattered a lot to me, but the will of God mattered too. God’s opinion had to count for more.
After six months, I finally yielded to Him and made the decision. God’s vision and call was just too loud to shut out or ignore.
At the Asia Conference, God provided more confirmations of that decision and provided glimpses of where His Church was heading.
Now I can only say that the road ahead looks promising and exciting in spite of the challenges that are tied to it.
You matter to me
Looking back, the process of making this decision was mostly a lonely and emotionally-bearing experience. But I’m blessed that my experience was made more enduring with the love and understanding of some of the brothers and sisters who believed in me.
To those that I may have disappointed, please forgive me. I can only explain my decision with this underlining truth that each of us have our God-given race to run, and I’m obeying God in running mine.
The lessons learnt from this experience are ones that I will not forget. One day, I hope to pen down this experience in a book when this faith decision bears fruit.
Cos I believe that there will be many others who will go through a similar cross-road situation at one point or another, and I hope my personal experience will help them make a prayerful, calculated, balanced and biblical decision.

Hey dear bro! 🙂 Thanks for being so real and honest! =) Yah, can sense that it was not easy for you at all, though I already had guessed that you were thinking of making the transition quite some time ago.
I’m only thankful that we, your previous church, can have the joy and privilege of being used by the Lord to build up your foundation in Christ for the past years… and now you’re moving on to where God has been calling you to go.
Thank God truly for your heart of love for His people, the flock that He’s placed under your care… for the years of faithful service to the Lord and His people…
In any case, you made your decision with the right heart and spirit before God… so bro, if God calls you to go, and He’s made His will loud and clear, then you must go! 🙂
In any case no worries… just as long as we’re all on the same team, and fighting the good fight of the faith – then when one sows and another reap, together we’ll be glad! Amen!
Just keep walking close to Jesus, no matter where you are, and stay rooted and strong in the Word of God, so that we can be like a tree planted by streams of water, to yield its fruit in season!
Haha… keep on writing in your blog about what the Lord is doing and will do in your life to come…
Love in Christ,
I am encouraged by your sharing too. No matter where we might be worshipping, we worship the same God and run the same race. Human interaction always brings about joy and pain..But with time and with God’s love, others will come to understand and support your decision one day. After all, it’s His kingdom’s work that truly matters. May you go forth bravely and glide through this transition smoothly. It won’t be easy..but may you recognise and be encouraged by the blessings that flow along the way. Keep writing and sharing!
