Hi, I am Meijing, nice to meet you!
I’m a Christ follower. I came to know Christ around my first year in college, which was the best decision I’ve ever made. I’ve been blessed in many ways – a group of good friends serving with me in the church who also grew up with me; a loving husband whom I met in church; a sunny 12-year-old son who is also having his own group of peers in church, and so much more…
After graduating from college, I worked at several architectural firms as a designer and project manager in my last job. However, the love of Christ compels me, and I was called to serve in His ministry full time starting January 2020. So now, I mainly serve in our children and youth ministry in my church.
Switching from the field of architecture to the area of ministry was a significant change, but it went gracefully for me, by the grace and power of Christ. Like anything else, my ministry work was also impacted by COVID-19. My in-person services have now moved on to Zoom and become contactless. Thankfully, the shelter-in-place order actually gave me more time to read and to think about His word. Also, looking back at some of the notes I wrote from my Bible devotions in the past inspired me to write more. My husband, Guo, had always encouraged me to start my own blog and write, so here I am!
God’s word is so precious and lively! He is the one that speaks! He IS the Word! I pray that the Lord can make use of this little garden of mine to touch, strengthen, and refresh your heart.
Thank you for allowing me to share my faith and the love of Christ with you! Enjoy some raisins and apples from Him!
A bit of update:
2021: God is the expert in turning ashes into beauty! As a byproduct of the pandemic, I’ve also started the Raisins & Apples YouTube Channel, turning some devotionals in this blog into videos. Along with the devotional videos, you may also find songs that I covered with the Miners – a worship singing group that I formed with a couple of my longtime singing buddies, Ed and Irene. 🙂 I’ve also produced some Bible Trivia game videos. So, check them out here! 🙂
2022: It is my honor and pleasure to welcome three awesome brothers to join me and be the guest writer on this blog since February 2022. They are Ming, Daniel, and Ed. Their sermons and devotionals have been a blessing to many, including myself. I’m more than thankful to have them sharing their Bible wisdom and devotional writings here with me.
