I wasn’t paying much attention to the new year. On the 31st December, I was in bed by 9.40pm and asleep by 10.30pm. :)
But in the Lord’s day meeting on 1st January, one brother’s shared something that was a little related to the new year. Actually he had mentioned this to us in the WST office during the previous week, but I am glad he respoke it!
He pointed out that at this time every year, three revolutions take place:
Well somehow I ended up missing most of the meetings of the University Conference that took place last weekend, but I still very much enjoyed all the saints coming and especially having the sisters in my home.
I received a little overview of what was shared during our fellowship times in the evening, and I’ll be looking out for the mp3s of the messages so I can catch up! The encouraging stats and a few pictures are below, but first here is a little titbit that I did enjoy:
Our natural humanity is like rotten wood. A house built with rotten wood, even if it is overlaid with gold, will collapse.
Can you imagine how foolish it would be to build with rotten wood? That reminds me of the bookshop – and yes a post on that is coming! There is no way that any builder who is interested in the longevity of a property would build with rotten wood. That is just asking for trouble.
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?
