Today Pastor Russell talked about what it means to be a servant/steward/minister as compared to being an owner.
One point mentioned was how the talents we have are not ours, but are God's. God gave us talents that we may use them to fulfil his purpose
And God reminded me of one very important word.
Got some work to do. Lord, lead me =)
Somehow, this prep-school holiday has been going really well and has been very enjoyable and fun. Thank you Lord Jesus. =)
A part of me is excited and can't wait for University to start, while part of me still wants the holidays to go a little longer. Probably because of the fact that my parents are here; I'm going to miss them <3
The past few days have basically about helping my younger brother get ready for life in Melbourne, as well as spending time with my mummy and daddy.
On Friday morning, before my parents could get stuck doing anything, I took them to Melbourne Central to catch the earliest screening of Slumdog Millionaire. It totally deserved those awards; the storyline and the visuals were fantastic. I didn't really see any loopholes. The movie was so gripping and touching and you always wanted to what would happen next; how did he answer the next question. The reality that the director channelled through the movie was really well done as well, no movie-MTV-fake in it. Mummy and Daddy enjoyed themselves too. =D
And I finally got to dance again! I know it's only been a week, but I was starting to feel withdrawal symptoms. Lol. Ok maybe not so serious, but you know when the body is so used to doing a particular activity, you must do it at least once a week? So yeah. Timomatic's in Sydney at the moment; He made it into SYTYCD Australia. Heeeee. Go Tim!
Anyway, the class was still the same, just a different teacher - Trevor. Hmmm, his style is very similiar to Tim's, which I like. The choreo was so much fun and was pretty easy to do =D. No videos though, sadly. >.<
Yesterday, after meeting Uncle Randel for lunch, we spent the entire afternoon in DFO shopping. Literally, we must have had 10 or 11 shopping bags by the time we left the place at closing time. Heh, and to think I brought quite a lot of clothes over to Melbourne thinking I wasn't going to have enough =X
Oh, and to everyone out there who reads my blog: Please support the victims of the forest fires, as well as families who have lost loved ones in the disaster.
God be with them always. The other day in my morning devotional, He taught me to 'do something for sombody'. The same day itself, I happened to walk into my favourite cafe and found a donation bowl there. The chef of the cafe had just lost two cousins to the fires. God's plan; I believe He was also testing me to see if I believe and will follow His lead. I did. Again, God bless the families who have lost loved ones.
