Wilson cancelled Friday's Christian Union meeting because many, apparently, could not make it, and he had ISKL Forensics Debate practice on.
But I wasn't aware of the change, so I went to the usual classroom after briefing the new Editorial Board probationary members on the orientation.
Only Sam was there, strumming on his guitar. So I called Wilson and then told Mum to come pick me up earlier. But before I knew it, Li-Shia appeared, and I realised CU would go on. So I called Mum to change plans.
"For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them," Jesus said.
We sang the following songs, accompanied by Sam on acoustic guitar:
God Will Make a Way
You are the Peace that Guards My Heart
The Old Rugged Cross
Blessed be Your Name
Open up the Gates
Because He Lives
A very diverse selection indeed, and there was no 'formal' list to begin with, so we just suggested songs as they came to mind. The first and last were Sam's, and they just pierced right into me;
God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me...
...Because he lives, I can face tomorrow
Because he lives, all fear is gone
Because I know, I know he holds the future
And live is worth the living, just because he lives
We closed the meeting in prayer, and I led. It was a joy to pray then; sometimes it isn't.
We prayed for the challenges ahead of us: Sam is getting used to Pure Science in Form 4, while Li-Shia and I have the STPM to deal with, in addition to our extra-curricular responsibilities in the Consumer Club and Editorial Board respectively.
God was with us, and he will be always.
