Part of my personal wrestling these past years had been around the topic of church and state. I grew up despising the field of politics, as I often saw it being used for oppressive means and personal gain. Yet here I am today, running for a seat at the Parliament. So here I pen my reflections, seeking to echo the prayer that Christ taught us: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done,” even as He breathed His last.
One of my favorite things of journeying as a Christian is to converse with others on how the Lord is so involved in all of our lives. Recently, my trip back to the US sparked a conversation with one of my dear friends on the topic of discernment. This is my letter to her. I pray that this letter may only bring us to deeper communion with our Lord who revealed His will through Calvary Love.
As 2018 comes to a close, penned here is my customary letter to self after having reflected upon the Lord's leading through the year.
Over the years my birthdays have been a time of reflection of how the Lord has kindly led me through the seasons. Perhaps this year, specifically, calls for the thoughts on the Theology of Work, especially, as I step into the workplace for the first time. I am thankful that these have been restless months, and I pray that this post may be one of many conversations to come about what it means for us to “work as unto the Lord.”
