Relentless pursuit

Wow, it's already February. Relentless pursuit: a strong reminder of our God who continually pursues us no matter how far we turn or run away.

For most of you who know me from Waterloo, you may know about a certain "'lil godsis" who has also turned up in Hong Kong. After a tumultuous undergrad life, which was lived out under no supervision from any "godsisters", she made her way to Hong Kong for a lifestyle which she sought since even before university.

And what a disappointment that lifestyle came to be. December was super-busy for me because I had to help her through a few crisis points... yet, despite how low it seemed to be, God provided, and now, after at least 5 years, she may have finally have found the start of picking her life up and seeking those things which are lasting.

Through her experience, I can attest that God has always continued to watch over her no matter how much she did turn away.
Through her experience, I have also learned a glimpse of God's unconditional love for us -- though discipline is a tough part of that -- and also learn to love others in the same way.

Things were going ok for about a month or so, but now, there is another fresh crisis point, and we can only pray for the next steps. But I am confident God will continue to teach us about his providence and guidance. Amen!

Until next time, this is Gladys Yam.
