Serving people can be hard work, whether in or out of the church. In church, I am thankful for the support I get from family and friends as I serve, but there are still many moments when I feel discouraged and insufficient to continue what I set out to do
About Abigail Lai
Abigail holds a guitar better than she plays one. She studies food and loves to annoy her friends with bite-sized information about what they eat. In all, she is often confused about where she really is in life, makes very bad choices, and keeps in step with Jesus only because he is steady enough for a messy person like her. She tries to be real and that somehow always involves her revealing the broken places of her heart and life.
Entries by Abigail Lai
Have you ever woken up on some mornings feeling powerless and helpless? Perhaps you just had a fight with your loved one or friend, your efforts at school or work reap unpromising results, or you have so much work on your plate you don’t even know where to begin.
“Do not marry someone you have not had a big fight with.” The first time I heard this piece of advice, it startled me. It seemed counter-intuitive.
Are you an ENTP*? What are your top strengths? What does your sleeping position say about you? Did you know that your favorite color says something about who you are?
YMI (which stands for Why Am I?), is a platform for Christian young people all over the world to ask questions about life and discover their true purpose. We are a community with different talents but the same desire to make sense of God’s life-changing word in our everyday lives.
