I got to spend last weekend with some great people in St. Louis for a leadership conference. I learned so much about myself, my leadership, and my future at college and at the BSU. Author and speaker Steve Saccone spoke at the conference. The Lord totally spoke through him. It was such a cool experience.
I also attended a worship leadership session. It made me realize how important the worship actually is! It’s like, yeah, people love to sing and worship, but being in the leaders is such a big commitment. You have serve, be humble, be true and authentic, be prepared, and be excellent. It’s like, if you follow everything, you’ll be able to be excellent and worship the Lord wholly.
I had such a blast! The people I went with were so cool, and I’m glad I got to know them better and dive into relationships better.
I hope the Lord shows you what you are made to do, and I’ll be working on that, too!
Matthew 20:28– “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
I’ve been thinking about some stuff lately…like, how cool would it have been when to be around when Jesus was here on earth? Think about it; being there when he was preaching the Sermon on the Mount, watching the miracles in person, and see the living God do his thing. It would have been crazy seeing and experiencing all of that! I would have been a set believer then…how could you doubt?
But, we live in the modern world. There is war, differences in religions, and the thought that we must be P.C. all the time. We don’t have that guy that came to live with us, teach us, and mentor us. But, we have the Word and the fact that Jesus is still living within us. How cool is that?! He can be our best friend, our love, everything.
John 20:29 says, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” I think this is such an important verse to know. It’s right after Jesus rises from the grave, and Thomas won’t believe until he sees and places his hands on the marks from the nails. Jesus is really encouraging when it comes to the people who still believe he was raised, even though they haven’t seen him.
I love this! It’s like, Jesus knew there would be doubters and skeptics in the world. Jesus was taking us into account. I love that Jesus was so cool and down-to-earth about everything. Jesus was an actually man…he was human; the thing is that he resisted sin. He was like no other human EVER. Jesus was so cool…I can’t get over that! I absolutely love it.
Keep on staying in faith, and even if you doubt know that Jesus loves you. I’ll keep that in mind, too. Feel free to leave opinions, questions, anything. I’ll respond!
Luke 18:14-“For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Ahh, Saturday…you are one of my favorite days of the week. No school, no plans, no anything important. You are a chill, down-to-earth, beautiful, sun-filled day. Sincerely, The Entire World.
Okay, there’s my love letter to Saturday. I’m sitting in a Starbucks, feeling like a hipster, drinking a tall white chocolate mocha Frappuccino. I’m hanging out with some super cool people, discussing some of our opinions and beliefs. It’s so nice to get out of my little college town to go to the closest college town that has a Starbucks!
I’ve been really behind with my writing, school work, everything. I’m trying to find a job, trying to get through the next three weeks of school and still being involved with everything. It’s been a busy week!
I just want to leave you with some encouragement! School is almost out! Summer is coming! Make the most of it!!!!!
I love you all, and I pray for you all the time. Keep on keepin’ on, and I’ll do the same.
Mark 5:36- “Jesus told him, ‘Don’t be afraid; just believe.'”
This has nothing to do with my faith, religion, or anything like that. This has everything to do with my sense of humor! It’s been a long week, and I think we can all use a laugh or two. Jimmy Fallon and Channing Tatum…please enjoy!
