Thank you Jesus

And we know that God causes everything to work togetherfor the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Roman 8:28

It’s the second week of the semester and students here at the University of the South Pacific are finalising their timetables and getting settled into classes.  Today after spending much of the morning designing t-shirts and banners for the Wansolwara[1] (One Ocean – One People), I walk up to the White Tables[2] to meet with Biu[3].

11:15 am: A blessing

Biu offers to purchase for me a journalism textbook that I’m in dire need of. Thank you Jesus.

And we know that God causes everything to work togetherfor the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

I hadn’t been very active in sharing my faith on campus last semester; as a matter of fact I remember only going out twice to share about Jesus. But having joined the Evangelism committee for Student Life this semester, I’ve made it a priority to be a part of ‘Witnessing Wednesday’ whenever possible and that starts today.

12:20pm: Encouragement

Biu and I go out witnessing and are truly encouraged by the two people who allow us to share with them. The first person we meet shares how he had just received Christ as his personal saviour two weeks ago. He goes on to share how much of a blessing it is to meet up with young people he can share and grow with. The second person we witness to is an old friend from high school who I’ve been meaning to share to for quite some time. He invites Jesus into his heart. Thank you Jesus.

I manage to do a bit of reading and later decide to go with the boys to the Oceania Centre to listen to the Pasifika Voices. We actually get there before time and end up rehearsing with the choir, I eventually miss my class.

5:55pm: Inspiration

Ete[4] takes the stage and shares a bit about himself, his passion and vision. He talks of his love for music and how he longs to see people empowered, educated and inspired by it. Ete acknowledges God and shares how each one of us are to tap into our God-given gifts in order to become what God wants us to be.Thank you Jesus.

Thank you Jesus for today.
