A Picture Diary

Before anything I will admit that this post will be filled with tonnes of pictures, a lot of them low-res but still, I wanna share wiv u guys! so forgive me, it takes time to upload so many tho!!

Went back to work and boy does it hurt. I will admit to being quite highly stressed about it all. My problem is that I am in a job that I don't enjoy fully nor feel eqiupped for as well as being annoyed by work politics. Sounds like every job? I feel it is a testing time and character is there to be built but I just don't have the desire for this battle. Yes be excellent in all I do but my job is harder to see as being for God when so many people stand in between. Thank you God for my job and lead me on, not only in life but what I should pray for.

What I have enjoyed most about the last year: The enormous change that happened in me from my post-uni slump to God really speaking to me and using me.

What I have enjoyed the most about the festive season: Unity in family. Even though it was a fairly quiet Christmas it was a genuine effort and triumph. It was awesome to be as a family (bar papa) @ the Vine on Christmas day.

What I am most excited about in the long term: THE VINE!! We have two senior pastors and I feel God is going to release some mega anointing. In 1 Samuel 15 Samuel anoints David and he walked in power from that day forth. I feel that is what is happening with the pastors and that is huge for the church! ALSO my future! It's all in God's hands with my utmost trust and gratitude, I have exciting times ahead! (not an arrogant thing but an awesome God thing)

What I am most excited about in the short term: CNY HOLIDAYS! Still things to do and people to see but I feel I am more prepared to fully utilize this break... and CIRCUIT BABEE!!!!!

Words of wisdom? Cereal first then add milk, Dan has a car in HK and plans to use it so be careful and Exodus 14:14 The Lord will fight for you and you shall hold your peace!
