Nothing Worthless.

No Comments »

A Psalm of David. And a goal for the rest of my life.

"I will ponder the way that is blameless.
Oh when will you come to me?
I will walk with integrity of heart within my house;
I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless."

Psalm 101:2-3a

Pub Ministry.


I guess I'll humor everyone. I'll share an England story.

It was the day of the last roadshow before Creationfest. This roadshow was going to take place in Wadebridge at the Town Hall. The flyers had been passed out and we hoped that this roadshow would really reach the people of the community. Funny thing was, as the clocked ticked, it didn't seem like very many people from the community were showing up. There was a crowd, but that was mostly people from our church and from Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale and a scattered bunch of local believers. So much for outreach—or so we thought.

Rachel hears of an open mic night just two doors down at the local pub. All of a sudden, people from our team are heading over to the pub. Talk about being lights in the darkness! It was incredible! The night ended out with the full Scott Cunningham band leading worship at the pub! Who would have ever thought that would even be possible?! God is SO good!

Life is like a wheelbarrow...

There are 252 days until graduation. No, I am not counting down out of pure bliss. It's more like depression. I don't want to leave CBU. It has been an amazing chapter of my life that I do not wish to turn the page on. But alas, life must go on.

I don't even want to leave Riverside. Yes, I said it. Stone me.

I have NO CLUE what the next chapter of my life entails. I almost feel like my life is coming to an end. Especially because I remain single. Haha.

But there is good that comes out of singleness. There are SOOOOO many opportunities I can jump onto only because I am single. One of them being the job opportunity in England I mentioned in the last blog. Another one being Summer of Service at the Bible College in Hungary. How cool would that be?! A whole summer in either England or Hungary! Any non-single girl would have strings holding her back from opportunities like this. I, on the other hand, do not.

We'll see what God has in store for me! I'm ready to take on anything He throws my way!

I don't even know what to say about my England trip this year. It was everything. It was amazing, tiring, fun, exhausting, exciting, a blessing, a frustration, rainy, sunny, long, but too short.

I want to go back. Already. I just got home yesterday, but I already miss England. I left my heart in England this summer. Really, I did.

I used to say, "I could so live in England!" but that statement is closer to reality now than ever before. Kris offered me a job for next summer. He had mentioned it last year too, but I didn't think he was too serious about it. Then he mentioned it again this year. Again, I thought he was joking. But he kept saying it over and over. He even told his wife, who got super excited at the mention of the possibility. Then he told me exactly what I'd be doing and how much he'd pay me. It was then I realized how serious he was. This would be such an amazing opportunity. I really want to go. The praying starts now!

Anyways, I may share some specific stories in the near future...but for now, enjoy the funny quote of the trip: "How am I conceited? I'm fully clothed." -Lance agreement with my good friend Hannah, a blog is much more exciting if it includes a photo, so enjoy my polaroid from England :)
