While in LA, I decided that I didn’t want to live life my way anymore. I wanted the relationship with Jesus that was offered to me by the God who created me. I decided that I wanted to follow Jesus!
I remember getting on my knees praying that God would reveal himself to me the way that he had to my sister. Pleading that somehow the depth of understanding these students had of the gospel could infiltrate my community back in Cheney.
In this story, it is no longer about me. I gained a new life in Him. My Only God moment came when I realized; my life is not about me. It’s not about the transformation He has displayed in my life, but the glory He gets when I put my life in His hands
In EVERY season we are called to be people who tell others who Jesus is... even on the days we feel unequipped and unworthy. The Lord does not need us, but He graciously invites us to be a part of the bigger story He is writing.
The purpose of my life has to be completely tied to the significant role Jesus gives me. He came to introduce his kingdom and invite humanity into it as citizens and ambassadors, therefore my purpose is to do the work of the King.
I spent 9 out of the last 12 months living away from my home in Eugene, Oregon. It was uncomfortable. It was challenging. But the best part is that I was still home. Jesus is my home.
I trusted these people who loved me in spite of my flaws, and I trusted this Savior who invited me into a better life – one surrendered to the truth and mission of Christ.
I was pretty scared at the thought of moving our lives to Washington, but some of the best stories in life begin when we take the biggest risks.
I needed more from God than I had ever asked for, more from life than I ever knew could be, and more from a church than I had ever experienced.
This transition isn’t always easy-it is often scary-but it’s worth it. It is worth knowing that people at Western Oregon University will come to know Jesus- not by how special the team is, but because of how great our God is.
