March Update


What a fun month of ministry! I got to finish Focus on Jesus (bible study) with one of the girls I meet with! Her name is Amelia and it has been such a joy to see God move and work in her life. She has grown so much in the last year and I have loved getting to watch God work in her. 

at a park for a day of sabbath!

We took a day of Sabbath before spring break and it was refreshing to be in nature and to spend time with the Lord for a longer period of time. The Lord was sweet to remind me that I am his and he loves me even in the messiness of this season. I am not able to rest in the same ways I used to, now that I have Eli, but I am still able to be filled by Christ. I have been listening to a devotional in the evenings as a part of Eli's nightly routine and it has been transformative in this season of rest. I am able to listen to scripture and be reminded of truth. 

I am thankful to this ministry for all that it has done to grow my relationship with God. I feel God telling me, "you're right where you need to be." Which I am not sure what that means practically but I am excited to see God show up. I am learning more what it means to be dependent on God in this season. I am so woefully inadequate for ministry and loving people and somehow the Spirit has shaped me into someone who can love in part like Jesus. But I can only do that with God's help. He is the one who animates me and allows me to change and gets rid of things in me that don't look like him. 
Truely, all I have is his. My life, my possessions, my family, my child, my job, my hobbies, my free time, everything. The only reason I am where I am is because of the Lord. It is all his because he gave it all to me. I am thankful to be apart of Jesus working here in Denton. I know it is not because of me, but because of God working through me. 
I am thankful to have a community to be transformed in and to invite people into. Church is such a big part of our growth as disciples. I think Church can be painful to us, both because of hurt we harbor but also because of the people in it. But it is the vehicle that Jesus chose to shape us. I wanted to encourage yall in this. When things are difficult, show up. Talk to people about your struggles and let them help you through them.
