March happenings from Messiah at college….
Hey guys, it’s Messiah here.
I hope y’all have been doing well. I have been a busy busy guy. I didn’t think that college would be this hard or busy, but it definitely is. Honestly, there are some things that I sometimes think “how in the world is this going to help me in my future?” It’s whatever. I do the work because it is required. I am having trouble in one class, and that class is New Testament survey. That class kicks my butt every time. I thought I knew the Bible, but the things he talks about is sometimes kind of hard to comprehend. Like we talk about different themes and literature topics and a lot of different things that are really hard to comprehend. I will get through it I know, but I have three more years to go. I can’t believe that I’m almost done with my first year of college. The spring semester has really flown by. It has been a lot faster than the fall semester. Recently I have been becoming really homesick. I have been thinking a lot of wanting to go home and see the people back there. I have a lot of good friends here too, but like they say, there is no place like home.
I have again like last month had a lot of opportunities to do ministry. I told y’all last month that I am interning at a church and working there. I’m going to be honest, but the ministry is hard. I had to plan a worship night, and it was very difficult. I had planned for four other people to help me lead worship, and only one came. In all honesty, it was very frustrating, but the person that I am interning with said that this type of stuff is normal, especially if the people are not getting paid. If there is one thing that my mom and dad taught me, it is to let my word be my word, and to work hard. I had to be reminded that God will always work everything out. And that’s exactly what he did. Everything worked perfectly, and I am so grateful. That night went great. It was a good night of worship and prayer, and just encountering God.
Lastly, I am so grateful that I have a mentor that I can talk to about anything. I have hard days somedays because I’m away from home, tired, and because of the unspoken prayer request that I asked for last blog.
I am glad that I am doing well, and I love that I am getting a taste of what ministry will be one day.
Thank y’all for reading my blog, and I hope y’all have a good rest of your month.
