I figured that since I had time I would blog. ;) Also, some people have asked me to tell them what I’ve been up to. Well, for those of you who don’t know, I’m at Bible School in TX. I’m So Thankful that I got this opportunity to come here. It has been One of the best years of my life. If you have a chance to go to a torchbearers school you should do it. (that is if God wants you to.) I will tell you a little what it’s like. We have three classes every weekday morning plus chapel. Then two night classes after dinner. We all have a duty, like right now I put away all the food after dinner. Duty’s change every three weeks. On Mon. and Tues. afternoons we have free time to do homework and whatever else we want. Wed. we have outreach. I’m in a mentoring, we go to a school nearby and help the children with homework and play with them. Thursday afternoons we have work day. The girls clean and the boys work outside. Fri. we have two afternoon classes instead of night classes. The weekends we don’t have anything most the time. (besides going to church on Sunday.) That is what it looks like. ;)
What have I learned?
The most important thing I have learned is, Christ In you! (Gal. 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. ) Yes, I knew this before coming, but I didn’t get it. Its Christ living in and Through You! It’s Not your life it’s His.Another thing I learned is that I Do worry. I never really thought I was a worrier. But God showed me that I am. It’s something I have now been working on. (Phil. 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.)
A Big thing I learned last semester and through the brake was Contentment. (Phil. 4:11 Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.) I had never been away from my family ever. J Even when I went to camp I always had a sibling with me. Over the summer I wasn’t living at home, but I saw my family every Sunday. So, it was a Big adjustment to go and not have any of my family with me. I was fine the first couple of weeks and then about 4 weeks after being at school it hit me. For a week I was really wanting to go home and then I was ok for about 6 weeks off and on. Then it was one week before Thanksgiving and I wasn’t going home for Thanksgiving. From that week till I got home I wasn’t content. I thought that when I got home I would be content and everything would be good. Well, after one and half week’s home Jenel told me to stop talking so much about school. That is when I realized that I wasn’t content. By the end of brake I was content and I had learned to be content. So far this semester I have stayed content. Thanks to God. I know I only have three more months with all these wonderful students and that some of them I may not see till Heaven.
My favorite part?
