First! I have a bunch of comments already for my giveaway! Yay! I feel so special. =) Thank you to all who left one.
So today is my day to sign up for classes at college....yes, I am going to be getting married in 39 days and I will be in the throws of classes at the time. Ok, so I'm only taking a math and yoga class for the summer, but hey, I still have to plan and whip up decor and such. (I haven't been to school since last year and before that I kept dropping my classes....I just didn't want to go. =)~ Yes, yes, I know I was being lazy.)
So last week I was at church and our Pastor preached about getting into the Spirit of God. I had been feeling down lately because everytime I went to go pray in the morning it was a FIGHT to keep focused. That was frustrating. Anyways, so at the end of the service Pastor told a story about a preacher, based in our church, who was driving and praying one night. He stopped and parked on the Duke University campus. He looked up to see a Chinese man sitting on a bench reading, what looked like, a Bible. When the preacher got out of the car, he went and talked to the man. The man told him that he was almost too late, he was leaving for home in the morning. This man had been in the US for 5 years. When he had left his home, his grandmother had told him that he would meet someone who would explain the Bible to him. At the end of the story our Pastor told us that God would bring revival through college campuses across the nation. He then asked everyone to start praying, when I did, IMMEDIATELY I felt like I was in the vein of the Spirit. I started praying about the things and people in my life that are important to me. Then a thought came to my mind about college. (We have a ministry geared toward people of college age) I felt drawn to start praying about the college ministry. Then I felt deeply impressed that this time around, my college experience would be different. (Since coming back to church in March, even though I was raised in church, there has been a growth in my spiritual walk like I have never had.) I am so excited to start classes in 3 weeks. I can't wait to see what God has in store for me. Who will He put in my path? What will He teach me? Who will I be an example to? It's so exciting to think that I may be an integral part in the revival that God has in store.
Although, it was a bit of a hassle to sign up for classes. All of them were closed or wait listed. =(
I do know that wherever I end up I will be where God wants me to be.
Thank you to all those who have posted comments on my blog for the giveaway. I hope that my blog is interesting. =)
