There are times when teachers come into the office and share challenges they face Personal challenges, family challenges And ask to be prayed for Lord, what a privilege it is to be used as a channel of love! Morning devotions for all staff at 7.15am The first year – a little tardy But now most of the teachers are ready to begin morning devotions It is good to see the change It is even better to hear them after a year or two, sharing/testimonies. Once they were invited to share how they came to know the Lord At another time they shared how they view their relationship with God It touches the heart to hear from teachers who come from a different religion share: I am a Buddhist and before I came to this school, I hated the Christians Because I thought that they hate the Buddhists and want us to be Christians But I came to this school And I learn about the Bible And I learn that God also love the Buddhists Now I do not hate the Christians! Another Buddhist lady teacher who has just joined the school this year shared When I joined the Morning Devotion in this school, The Bible passages, the prayers and the teachings Address the problems I am going through I am so amazed said she. Lord, you are merciful! You comforted her and You affirmed in me that your Word does not return void. These are only some of the highlights I like to share Many more there are but I must not be wordy. Are there no challenges? Surely there are. In this world there will be challenges. They are like pruning shears –ouch it is painful But Lord you are always there You protect, You comfort, You place balm over the wounds And you make them well And Lord, I learn, I become more attentive to your leading. Lord it is time well spent in MSC And the journey continues With you going ahead of me I go ahead with confidence!
