THE SCHOOL

There is a name for this school and from time to time you will soon see that I will make mention of a school when I write my stuff. Reason being that this is the place where I have truly sat at the King’s feet. The place where I have started to know my Christ, my Saviour. There is nothing extra special about it and I don’t want to put so much emphasis on the school although I secretly wish everyone I know gets the chance to come for even a semester as I did :) But yes, the times spent there were so sweet and are something I would forever cherish in my heart.

There is something precious about this school and I say not because of the building or the people in it but because of the One, the Great King of the universe that the founders of this place resolved to glorify. This GREAT Being, Sovereign Most High One is my Beloved Saviour, the GREAT Unchangeable I AM is who I got to know more intimately than ever before.

The school is Ellerslie.

It is a place like no other. It is a set-apart environment in that everything in it, from the classes to the schedules, were all structured to provide us the students a time and place where we could just seek the Lord without any distractions. A place where I had laid all aside and came to Him empty of myself. A place where I truly understood who I really am in the light of who He is. I am the sheep and He is the Shepherd. I am nothing and He is everything.

I am excited to share with you guys what I have learned from my Master, My Teacher while I was there so do expect a few references, hehe. I didn’t want to annoy anyone or be too mysterious or give a wrong impression in that there is an unhealthy glorification of this school which I’m not genuinely doing, hence this page to explain :)

And although Ellerslie will always be special to me, my heart is filled with even more anticipation for greater things to come. This journey of earnestly seeking and pursuing Christ carries on even as I’m back home. I am so psyched.

About myspikenardforhisglory

5 simple words are what makes up the title of my blog - "my spikenard for His Glory." And this is based on stories in the Bible where two women chose to break their jars of expensive oil of spikenard to wash the feet (Mary) and hair (unnamed woman) of our Lord Jesus Christ when He came to visit them as an act of total devotion and worship to their King. This is my story. I have broken my alabaster jar. My hope for this blog is that GOD would use testimonies of His faithfulness in my life to draw you to Himself. That He is glorified and lifted high as I pour out my jar to wash His feet. There is no end to this given, surrendered life. I don't believe it is a one off thing. As Paul said, "I die daily." And for as long as I live, my flesh will die daily to the glory of my King Jesus. He truly is my all in all. This blog will not fall short of that and although no words can ever fully describe His majesty and glory, I will still resolve to only speak one thing and that is.... Jesus and Him crucified. May you be blessed as my King has blessed me over a hundred infinite times and may the words on this blog and the meditations of my heart be acceptable and pleasing to my Lord Jesus Christ!
