STL – God’s City

I’ve been putting all my brain cells in coming up with this stuff. Still confused if I want to do this or not.

Now this is really confusing. Today, July 8, marks my second day of reaching out to the lost. I think they’re literally lost who’s dependent to the scheduled shelter of the government of St. Louis.

What the heck am I doing?! I don’t know either!!! In the past few days, I had a chance to recalibrate my heart with God’s through Victory’s mid-year prayer and fasting. The vision of what God wants me to do during my stay in STL has got clearer and clearer. I couldn’t ask for more.

When the vision has been made clear, my faith has also been strengthened. The 9-day devotional material and the mid-year prayer and fasting devotion material discussing about faith really isn’t a coincidence. I believe it’s God’s way of telling me that my faith, no matter how small it is, can do impossible things.

Okay. The vision, the faith. Then what? As what Nike’s over-used slogan, I just need to act upon it. I may not be understood by everyone, I don’t care. I am living for an audience of One. That’s all that matters. Right? Right.

Then why this blog? Well, after so many battles between the left and right sides of my brain, I’d like to document, as much as possible, my STL chronicles of reaching out the lost. I’d like to be used by God mightily and I want to document it! Yeah.

What’s the plan? Since this is my first blog about this, I apologize of being lengthy. 🙂 Yesterday, I bought a snack pack of Ritz Crackers for my daily rounds. Today, I brought it with me. All 8 packs. I am hopeful I could give away those 8. I’m gonna do this every single day. As long as the weather permits.

It seems easy but it isn’t. Being in a foreign land and state where it’s the 2nd when it comes to crime rates is never easy. The fear of being attacked any time will always be there. The fear of being rejected will always be there. The fear of not able to say ‘God loves you.’ easily is always there. This won’t be easy.

But I’d rather take that risk and live a life always dependent to God. Afterall, this is His call. God loves this city and I should have compassion with it, too.

This scorching hot weather is really… Argh. But I thought of those homeless people and guess what, they endure four seasons with no complains!

I’m but a nobody dealing with my own fears. I’m but a nobody who is called by SomeOne to tell about that SomeOne to everyone.

I believe that I am victorious with this one. Why? How? ‘Cause God says so:

“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” – 1 John 5:4 ESV

‘Til then. Maybe later ’cause I still have to document my second day. 😊

Pray for me please. Pray for the lost people of St. Louis. And pray for this city. Greater things have yet to come. This is His city, afterall. Your will be done, Lord!
