Toilet Talk

In my opinion, the floor of a club toilet is one of the grimmest places on earth.

Mid-way through a night out in second year, it’s where I found myself, with a friend who had just opened up for the first time about her journey with faith.

We had done the typical girl-thing of heading to the toilet together, and after waiting for what felt like an hour in the queue, my friend gestured for me to join her in the cubicle.

“I want to chat” she said.

My brain went into overdrive. I tried to talk her out of it: there was a massive queue, it felt a bit weird to do here, I couldn’t really hear her, had she had too much to drink?

She then poured out how stressful she was finding uni, and her regret that she hadn’t gone back to church after leaving home. Through tears she told me she missed God in her life, but didn’t know where to start. I was pretty taken aback. This was a close friend who hadn’t talked to me about God at all before!

So, it was in that toilet cubicle, with people banging on the door because we had taken so long, that we knelt and prayed and she accepted him back into her life. It was a beautiful and unexpected moment.

What kind of opportunities will university present to show the love that Jesus showed you? More importantly, are you prepared for them?

Jesus said: 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' (Matthew 25:40)

Often it simply involves being willing to get down, in the dirt, and let God do his work.
