Right now I’m at one of my busiest points in the year, and I am learning that I need to learn to depend… on the Lord, and on the Body!
Last Saturday was the second young adults fellowship in London. I really appreciated the time. One of the questions that came up in the Q&A was:
As young adults, how can we help to prepare ourselves to take responsibility in the church, so that we will be the most useful to the Lord in the future?
The more I consider this question, the more I am treasuring it. And I am also treasuring the answer given by one of the brothers.
I enjoyed this one sentence from today’s Holy Word for Morning Revival, and thought I would quickly share it with you :)
The best way for us to swim in the river is to put our trust in the flow of the river, forget our own efforts, and let the flow carry us along.
And I just was reminded that the flow is the Spirit, and we can trust in this wonderful, all-inclusive, all-sufficient, all-fitting, life-giving and bountifully-supplying Spirit, Who is waiting just to fill us and meet our every need!
1. We work together with God by a life,

(Brothers) Able to fit
(Sisters) All situations,
(Brothers) Able to endure
(Sisters) Any kind of treatment,
(All) To accept any kind of environment;
(Brothers) All-fitting life!
2. Able to work
In any condition,
To take any kind
For the carrying out of our ministry;

Today was such an awesome day! It certainly wasn’t a waste of time at all! I actually went to two Lord’s table meetings today. The first was in district 9 of the church in London. We had our regular meeting this morning, and it was so full of life, life, life, and we were all being encouraged to just eat, eat, eat!
Then the second meeting was in Greenwich, for the first Lord’s table in district 11 of the church in London! Praaaaise the Lord! Many saints came together for this new beginning from all across London and nearby cities. It was glorious! Maybe you can tell I am a little excited :) But it was just awesome!
I had such an awesome day yesterday. In the morning I really enjoyed the prophesying meeting and the Lord’s table. And thank You Lord, I shared something during the prophesying meeting! It is good to practice to speak and to flow out. This is normal for Christians. Our God is a speaking God, and we are His speaking people!
And after that, I went into central London to meet up with a couple of sisters to help with the painting of the soon-to-be-opened Amana Trust Bookshop & Cafe. We went to the bookshop for the first time just over a week ago, and have been going whenever we have some time. It has been so much fun and it is great to participate by serving in this way. And I am so happy to be with the saints. Even when the journey time was extra long yesterday (because of engineering works)… it was worth it! (I’ve also been getting to catch up on my Life-study reading whilst on the Tube!)
I do intend to make a post about painting and the bookshop another time. But in this post, I wanted to share my enjoyment from last week’s Holy Word for Morning Revival. Did you know we are becoming truth?
This past week, the Holy Word for Morning Revival was on the subject of “The God-man Who Satisfies God’s Desire and Fulfills His Good Pleasure”. We were looking at Psalms 15 and 16, which begin with the following question:
O Jehovah, who may sojourn in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy mountain?
David, the writer of this Psalm, goes on to give an answer to his question.
He who walks in integrity
And does righteousness
And speaks truth from his heart.
He does not slander with his tongue;
He does not do evil to his friend,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his neighbor.
In his eyes a reprobate is despised,
But he honors those who fear Jehovah.
Should he swear to his harm,
He does not change.
He does not lend his money on interest,
Nor accept a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will not be shaken forever.
What do you think? Is this a good answer?
