Seeing the Promise

After praying for the last six months, the Lord showed me finally over the break where I would be going for school in the fall. And I’m so close now that I can see it, but I’m still one semester away. Just one semester away from the promise. But God’s not done in Charleston, not yet. I started my first semester at the main campus of the tech school today and immediately God began doing amazing things. He brought me community right after my first class, a guy from my church downtown, a guy that last night emailed my bible study leader last night and was joining our Bible study on Wednesdays this Wednesday. And then in Ethics I wanted to speak up, and share what I believed, but I folded, I got scared. I missed out on a chance to be bold for the name of Christ. But in History I got an unexpected second chance. Our history teacher walked around and asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. My heart pounded as she passed each student and got closer and closer to me. I began to pray that God would give me the boldness to say where He was taking me. I thought to myself, I don’t talk to people on the first day. I don’t want to go out of my comfort zone. I could just bend the truth a little I thought. But I prayed harder and harder and finally before I knew it she came to me. With my heart pounding I began to speak of being a college minister and also trying to get a degree in biblical counseling as well. Passion came spewing forth and confidence flowed in a room full of 20 so people that I didn’t know at all. And in that moment I knew this semester that the Lord wanted me to be more vocal at school about my relationship with Him. That He wanted me to be bold and run with Him all semester as I would see people healed, and saved, and come to know Him. This semester at this school would be my ministry and I was here to live in His boldness, to show His power, to show His love, and to continue on in the next part of His promise.

:Have a blessed night ya’ll,
Joseph.
