I cannot believe that winter break is already coming to an end and next week will be the start to my second to last semester! It’s crazy how time really does fly by. It blows my mind that this year will be my last year at Cincinnati Christian University.
Before starting this semester my professor who is in charge of my public theology concentration wanted to meet with the 6 of us who are in the program to discuss some things before we start. She invited us to her home to have coffee and pastries this morning. Not all of us were able to make it but it was such a blessing to see my brothers and sisters for the first time in a month. The whole time we were together we had fruitful conversations filled with insight and a lot of joy which really warmed my heart.
To be honest I’m pretty nervous for this coming semester. It will be my heaviest load so far with 19 or possibly more credit hours plus ministry. Also the classes I will be taking will all be core classes. This whole break I really have been trying to find peace and comfort from the Lord so I can go in with a positive and motivated mindset.
But the reality is, closer it’s getting to classes beginning more and more anxious I am becoming. But being with this group of brothers and sisters this morning really gave me motivation and drive. To know that I’m not doing this alone and to know God has blessed me with the best community I can call family to go along this journey with. Once again this morning I realized how thankful I am to have these individuals next to me to do life with together. I’m excited to see what God has in store for me and all of us as a whole this next semester!
I saw God today.
