Day 331..#Rooftops

I’ve been finding things difficult lately.

University work, being sad, being sick (thank God I’m better now) and feeling a little lost.

The whole “reintegration” back into the “normality” of life has been hard, and I admit, I have been struggling.

Today in Church, Pastor Charlotte Gambill preached about “Finishing Well” and about how if we don’t finish well – if we quit halfway through the middle of an activity or a task and never complete anything, we will never reach that joy of finishing, which will then lead us onto us questioning our own ability to achieve said task.

It was like she was talking to me. A lot of the things she was saying, I could definitely relate to and throughout the sermon, I could feel that I was beginning to understand where I was in my mind.

At the end of the sermon, there was a call out to all the people who felt like they needed prayer to help them “Finish Well” and I knew I should have gone out..but I was debating in myself whether to step out to the front or not..even though I could feel that this call was for me.

I saw people I knew going to the front to be prayed for without hesitation and I stood there thinking I should move, but my legs were not doing anything.

After about 5 minutes of arguing in my head, I said “Excuse me please” to the woman stood next to me and made my way to the front of the stage.

This was what I’m was supposed to be doing,” I said to myself, “This is where I’m meant to be.

I shuffled down the line as Pastors and other members of the Prayer Team stood there with people praying and I waited patiently for my turn.

My turn came and I stepped forward where I was asked “Is there anything in particular that you want us to pray for?”

I explained everything to him, and he put his hand on my shoulder and began to pray for me. I don’t know how much time went past before I realised he’d stopped praying and I was just listening to the band..I opened my eyes and went back to my seat..


We had sung this song earlier on in the worship, and I could just feel myself beginning to believe the lyrics.

The song is called Rooftops and it’s by Jesus Culture

*It’s about a second out of time..but I still hope you enjoyed it*
