So I think I owe y’all an apology. Maybe a few. It’s my goal to post on here at least once a week giving an update on what I’m doing or things I’ve been thinking about while I’m down in Georgia for these next five months, but these first couple weeks have been crazy. God’s been working in me in so many areas, and with classes, ministry, lunches or evenings with staff or fellow students, reading, and homework, these five months are going to be the busiest of my life.
That’s not to say I haven’t enjoyed my time. Busy as it’s been, there’s no place I’d rather be and no community I’d rather be surrounding myself with. Desire for Christ and His kingdom is almost palpable here. I’ve learned to lose myself in prayer. The first few days here were certainly difficult moving out from the house I’ve lived in my whole life and the communities I’ve been a part of, but I’ve found a whole new community here.
Training will definitely be challenging, but I know God is using it to mold me into the image of His Son. I have yet to discover where He’s leading me after this, but I don’t think I need to be in any hurry to find out. I spend too much time trying to plan things beyond my control anyway. There’s so much to do and learn in the here and now.
God is good.
Soak it in, Darrel. Soak. It. In. Hugs and all the prayers!
Our prayers are with you! Just keep your eyes on the prize and he will guide you!
So excited to see where God will lead you. Enjoy the prep time and make the most of the moments.
