I have continued to be amazed when I stop and think about completing my 11th school year at Campus Ministry! This has been an interesting journey to say the least, and yet I find that I still get excited by where the journey leads.
This journey has brought me to high places with active students who just loved to minister to one another, and to others around us. Those years were exciting, and it is hard to believe that they were not just last year, especially when I consider the recent Alumni Reunion and meeting some of the children of these same students!
The journey as also been a struggle at times, and sometimes I need to pause and remind myself that during the struggle years, I need to take the opportunity to stop and listen again to God and the leading that God is providing this ministry.
I am sensing a moving again of the Spirit in this place, a moving that I have not sensed in awhile, and frankly a moving that I had realized I missed until recently. Oh I know that this moving is going to bring about change and twist and turns for the immediate future, but you know that is something that I really love about the journey. What is God up to? I wonder how many times the Disciples of Jesus thought that way, asking themselves "What is Jesus up to now?"
I write this on the Monday after Easter, and there is one thing that I know for certain that Jesus is up to....HE IS RISEN AND DEATH HAS LOST! My prayer for all of us is that we can maintain this feeling of resurrection well beyond this season of Easter, so that we don't loose sight of the fact that death and darkness have no hold on us, because we have a Christ who is up to RESURRECTION! Today, Tomorrow, and Always!
Time to head out and take a few more steps.......I will share what I find with you later......
