THE FAN

Good Morning!

tFAN 2        Worshipping the Lord in Unity of the Spirit.

      A few short years ago I had the unique privilege of being part of a Kingdom Christian Conference in Vanuatu (one of the Islands of the South Pacific).   I had the special opportunity of actually staying with the women and children in one of the huts.   Forever, I will remember the early morning worship which rose from all the huts and little children with faces alight with the morning sunshine worshipped their Saviour Lord by dancing around the complex.

I was reminded again yesterday when discussion was on the news about New Caledonia (one of the South Pacific Islands).   French has always been the main language of this island.(after colonisation).

Together as one when these (first nation Island people) sang it was a unique blend of different cultures and language.   (To me then the Gift of Tongues for born-again in Christ believers) made absolute sense.  The languages were scrambled at Babel in the Old. Testament.

Jesus Christ through His Spirit came to reconcile the whole world.   (Language also will be joined in Him.  His unique language spoken to Him and for Him). (When all around you folk are singing, in island languages, English, French, Portuguese singing in God’s language made absolute sense.    Worship was AWESOME and WONDERFUL.

One small girl had a fan (similar to the one above).   I heard her say ‘for Jesus’. That child is a fan of Jesus Christ.   She knows him at six as Saviour Lord.    Her fan is used from her heart, as a surrender worship offering,  of all things, unto Him.

A thought to ponder.  Blessings and Grace!

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Imagining mornings in the community you so aptly describe made me tear up. It could be a matter of my time of life playing on my emotions. Still, I have long believed places like that can exist and have ached to bring that spirit to my neighborhood. What delight to read about it there, Faye. Thank you for sharing it!
