an ache

May you always be rested in Him alone and restless in making Him known.

My colleague wrote in my farewell card.

It is an imperative that we learn to cast our interests and inclinations away for the sake of lifting another up – that is one of the things I’ve learnt during my time in the government’s social sector arm. And this is especially so if we claim to love Christ.


It was a very different internship from what I expected. I thought that WEW I could exercise my Soci mind, broaden my perspectives on the social sector and understand how the government takes on such a complex task. Instead, I walk away feeling more uncomfortable than enlightened. I’m pretty uncomfortable that I’m okay being comfortable.

Things must change in my life. But more than just doing good deeds, I really hope i will grow courageous to share with others what I know to be eternal hope. The land is parched of love. The people don’t know how to hope. The church… what are we doing about it?

“The greatest social injustice is not telling people about Jesus.”

never forget.
