The Beginning

And so it begins!

This morning was mostly quiet and slow, (several of us are still working on getting over jet lag). At 11am, we all went out to see Singapore. By the time we made it to where we were going, we started getting hungry. So we decided to eat some lunch. After our delicious meal, we took a short walk to a coffee shop and had a short devotion. Afterwards, we were encouraged to take all of our reasons for coming on this trip, and rate them in order of our own personal priority. Next, we were to take that same list, and put it in God's priority order, then compare both lists.

As I did this simple exercise, I was amazed at how messed up my own agenda for the trip was. Most of my priorities were completely different than what God's priorities would be. I asked Him to help make His desires become my desires, and am confident that He will.

After that we went out for some quick souvenir shopping, followed by taking a lovely walk through the Gardens by the Bay. We found a place to eat there, and enjoyed a meal under the restaurant canopy as a storm threatened to make our return trip wet and miserable. But, as it turned out, it never really rained, and we were able to make it to the train station, hardly feeling a drop (Thanks to God for answered prayer!). We returned on the MRT, tired but happy after a long but enjoyable day. We got back to where we are staying and started getting ready for a good night's sleep.

As this trip stretches before us like a runway, I am so excited to see what God will do in our lives and hearts as we attempt to serve him in the days and weeks to come.
