Students for Christ (SFC) Tuesday mid-week meeting is usually one that is life-changing and refreshing. It is a useful mid-week service.
Attending it regularly, though, takes discipline. Sometimes one is so encumbered with tasks from school that it takes a special resolve to make it to the meeting. I call it meeting, instead of fellowship. I wonder who taught me that bad habit!Sometimes, I am totally not in a mood to travel or see faces, but after galvanizing myself to go, I find that I am happier than I was. I would totally have missed out, if I hadn’t obeyed and gone for the fellowship meeting.
I had always reminded one of the freshers in my dorm about the meeting which takes place one hour from our place of residence. School, as usual, hampered his attending the meeting.
Today, I checked his room after coming back from an appointment in town. I wanted to see him to apologize for not waking up for our 7am morning devotion, and assure him that we will try again tomorrow. He wasn’t in the room. His roommate told me that he was out of the hostel. That was rare, for he wasn’t one to go out at 9:40. Alas, he had gone to fellowship!
“Interesting,” I muttered to myself, thanked his roommate and hid that in my heart.
On sighting him, I walked up to this very friendly fresher, and after exchanging pleasantries, asked him of his motivation for going to the meeting today. He laughed and answered, “There comes a time….”
That was his perception: there comes a time.
You see, there comes a time when you have to do that very something you fear to do. There comes a time when a man must take his decision’s seriously.
There comes a time when you have to leave your comfort zone and swim against the current. There certainly comes a time when you decide not to flag. There comes a time when you must do something!
Perhaps your time has not come, but friend always remember that there will certainly come a time.
You will, however, be fatuous to wait for the time to come to you. You must make out time and do that very something.
The time is now!
Well, after speaking to the young man, he asked me, “Will you also blog about this?” for he always follows my blog posts. I initially demurred. But who am I not to share this good news with the world? Perhaps, it might inspire someone.
