When this post publishes, I will be flying over the midwest on my way to a retreat on the east coast. My ability to come on this really just fell into place as The Lord was telling me to keep doors open in my life. I'm kind of nervous. Pray for me that I can really listen and respond to God's desires for me this weekend.
|A Sneak Peak!|
Sunday we had our first round of discipleship groups. I have freshman girls and it was SO FUN. We spent an hour crafting prayer journals and getting to know each other a little better and a second hour diving into Matthew 16:13-20. We spent time talking about the question that Jesus asks His disciples, "who do you say that I am?" I was impressed by their willingness to share on our first night and their desire for Jesus. I am excited to spend this time with these girls, walking towards Jesus together.
At one point Ryan said, "I am just going to go and live and love. I am going to talk about the things I'm passionate about. It just happens to be Jesus and evangelization."
These words have stuck with me since Sunday night. I really want to be someone who brings Jesus with me wherever I go. Ryan's words challenge me to this in a real, relational way. Yes, we must be intentional in our conversations, but we also must be real. If we are truly in love with Jesus, we are going to talk about Him. I've been trying to live my life in this way. My conversation with Ryan has been fuel for me to keep striving for that this week.
