Growing Together

I’m so blessed to be a part of other people’s lives by seeing them grow in their walk with God. As we say we are Christian, we must then believe that we are also commanded to make disciples just like what Jesus did with the chosen twelve. And to be a disciple and to make disciple is a privilege in our Christian walk. It must not be a burden for us but a joy as we experience God’s transforming power in our lives.

And being part of a discipleship group is never boring. It’s a great time of knowing the Lord deeper, knowing one another deeper, encouraging and praying for each other. It’s a venue where you can be yourself without fear of being judged. You get to travel together, do fun things together. And the other best part – there is always food! Haha!

I’m glad to be a part of a discipleship group. If you are not part of any, I hope you would start stepping out of your comfort zone and start reaching out. As our senior pastor said, (reason for not joining a discipleship group) if you think you don’t need help, then, be the one to give help. And I totally agree! Today, someone might need your encouragement, your blessing, your prayer. Don’t miss out on such a privilege!

Making it happen

I just finished watching the movie Julie & Julia.

I actually got inspired with Julie’s dedication to blog every day about what she is cooking (inspired of course by Julia Child’s recipe). What is amazing is she was able to complete her project as she set to do it for 365 days.

Totally admire how she put her heart on it to get it done. And that journey really paid off for her. She was able to eventually had her book published and even had the movie. And now, she is doing what she really loves to do which is writing.

One of the things in my bucket list is to be able to publish my own book someday. I just don’t know how to start, where to start. I just don’t want to write for the sake of writing but to be able to inspire and encourage others as well. Thus, this blog.

I can always start something but to sustain it and finish it is a different story. I might need to be like Julia, challenging myself to really complete something for 365 days. It’s just that right now, I just don’t know what I want to write about.

I’ve been thinking that the book should be telling stories of ordinary people to other people. I want it to be a book that would let other people know that they are not alone on what they are going through. That on some parts of the world, people go through the same. But the highlight of these stories would be on how these people meet God and how their life changed from then on. It may seem common but it’s not just for the sake of publishing a book. It’s a book that when given to someone can truly inspire and encourage.

I dunno… I’m just thinking out loud here right now. Maybe, I should just really start doing something about it and just stop thinking.

Someday perhaps, it will happen?
