breakfast for my soul....

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." - Matthew 11:28-30

was reminded of this verse this morning when listening to one of the many sermons in my MP3 player...it was like breakfast to my hungry soul....it struck me hard as i so wanted, needed this rest from God...

thanks to my LJ friends from NCC (Lish, Esther and Angela) who have so kindly sent me the sermon DVDs, CDs, and MP3 files in emails, and burnt to DVDs (like i was like WOW when i saw the two DVDs full of sermons last sunday from Angela!!)...watching the DVDs from Lish on Grace and Favor of God was the first awakening call like my soul has been starving for so long...even when we went to church on sunday, we were often distracted and could not fully concentrate to listen to the message...

now, i have a new 'routine' in the morning...i have wiped the songs of my MP3 player and filled it with sermon MP3 files...and i have been listening to them on my way to work, and on my way home from work...like my soul has somehow been hungry for so long, it has finally found food for itself and could not get enough of it...

it reminded me of my first cell group (it was called "house-church" in my home church in sydney) meeting...when i was brought to visit this cell group, which was led by my wonderful big brother Daniel...who was a gifted teacher...he would share with us as a group first, like "preaching" to us a small church, the teachings from the Bible...and i remember my other good friend cum brother, Mendel, who is from Hong Kong, would say this almost every Saturday, in Cantonese, "ah...got rice to eat lor..." like listening to Daniel's sharing, was some kind of soul food, we were so eagerly looking forward to in anticipation and excitement...

and that excitement seems to be back like a long lost friend...it is wonderful...i just hope this will last :)
