A Grain of Salt and a Photon of Light | 10/14/16
Hi Munchies. So, this past Wednesday I went to gospel time for the first time. I personally went with Rina and Jenny. Since it was my first time, I felt quite weird because walking up to strangers and talking to them isn’t my thing. When I was watching Rina and Jenny, and how they approached people, I tried to imagine myself in the other person’s perspective. If it were me, being the freshman that I am, I would probably think they’re weird and run away. Thankfully, the people who we (they) talked to were not like me. I think what I got out of that time of observations was that there are all types of people, people who are like me who will run away, people who will pretend to listen, people who will instantly reject you, and then there are people who actually wants to receive the Lord. Those people might only be a few, but, the more people we talk to the more likely we will encounter someone who is waiting to receive the Lord. Therefore, I feel like, as a grain of salt and a photon of light, Hopefully, next time the lord will use me to excite an electron (electron=people).
Gospel Time? Gospel Time!
Like Dor, a small group of us went out on Wednesday to just go around campus and ask people about what they thought about Christianity and God. This was probably my second time going so I was pretty freaked out. You know that game of sharks and minnows? Well, I felt like a minnow. One of the staff members sat me down and asked me if I enjoyed anything that morning. I remember something that said that God is our peace and to put all of our anxieties on Him. “In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; And the peace of God, which surpasses every man’s understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7). That was a real experience of mine when I was struggling with studying for my three midterms the previous week. I was so stressed and tired and at one point I was like, “I can’t do this, Lord. It’s all on You now”. An overwhelming sense of peace washed over me. So I told this to her and she was like, “GOOD, NOW USE THAT AND LET’S GO!” And off we went into the shark infested waters. And although the people we talked to weren’t very open to talking about God, it felt amazing to go out and share my experience of the Lord with others, and to pray that they’ll also be able to see something so real of Him.
