Power Connection 2009


I did it! I just finished my first big event!!! This past weekend there were almost a 1000 middle schoolers at NWMSU learning about JesusCRAZY LOVE for us (and baby bunnies—check out www.synodyouth.org). I did everything from registrations to *cough* dancing on stage. It was a blast to say the least. I was in my element using the gifts God has given me. I was able to encourage and be encouraged. I’m continually learning what it means to lay down “my plans and my ideas”. I’m seeing what happens when I let Holy Spirit lead. I’m not going to lie and say transition isn’t hard. I miss my close friends—as spread out as they are. Sometimes the ache is so deep I all I can do is let my heart bleed. In those moments I cling to the promises I know. I am thriving in my job. I really love what I do and would not trade it! I KNOW I am exactly where I am supposed to be. I follow a FAITHFUL God who is doing GREAT works in and through me. "It's not about what you can do, but what God can do with your life when it's fully surrendered to Him" (TWFT). I know HIS grace is sufficient and I know HE will never leave me nor forsake me. I am called here because HE LOVES ME and I will follow because I LOVE HIM.
