Your emptiness is but the preparation for your being filled, and your casting down is but the making ready for your lifting up.
was totally rad. I’ve wanted to do that for so long. Tonight at family we washed each other’s feet. I’m so grateful for Josh, Stephen, and Dylan. My life here at CCU wouldn’t be the same without their influences in my life. Josh has been someone great to look up to and introduced me to reading scripture in a group setting, Stephen has pushed me to be a better student and has allowed me to bring him out of his comfort zone time and time again, and Dylan has surprised me and humbled me countless times with his pure love for people. Wow. What a blessing… I feel truly humbled and tonight was really great.
When I lay these questions before God I get no answer. But a rather special sort of ‘No answer.’ It is not the locked door. It is more like a silent, certainly not uncompassionate, gaze. As though He shook His head not in refusal but waiving the question. Like, ‘Peace, child; you don’t understand.

What else will I be doing this year?

WOW. My life has changed SO much. Seriously, if someone had told me I was capable of doing these things over a year ago I would have flipped out. I can’t even believe it. God is so good and is making me grow into who I am supposed to be. It is these small things that remind me that I am growing and changing. I am so grateful. It’s easy to live for Christ when it is so obvious that he is moving in my life. Currently filled with love and excitement for what’s to come. This will certainly be my most exciting year yet.
This summer I am going to Kenya on a mission trip! We have five people on our team and we will be working to spread love, education, and the gospel. Thank you for partnering with us.
