HE has begun a GREAT work!

Early this morning, before most college students even THOUGHT about rolling out of bed…Many young women gathered together to seek the Lord, find encouragement and accountability within the Greek system here at Carolina.

Our “7 AM Greek Women’s Discipleship Breakfast” was a hit this semester and we are praising God for all that He’s done in our lives, in these girls lives and in their ministries to their sisters! CFA lures them, but the fellowship keeps them :)

The girls asked me not to show any pics of them, even though I think they are adorable with their bed-heads and sweatpants :)

Here are some of the things we praised God for as we wrapped up our semester together!

So many sweet stories are behind these words. I wish you could have heard them all…but then you’d be all teary like me :)

Next semester, we are anticipating aligned, evangelistic Bible studies in EVERY sorority house!! This is HUGE. Praise God with us.

It’s cool to hear all the awesome ways these women are believing God for things next semester…

And we are praying for God to do even more than we could ask or imagine!

I think as long as their faces aren’t showing…they won’t be too mad :) LOVE YOU GIRLS!! You have sooo many people praying for you!!

God is at work…even when we are not!

Here are some lessons learned from being stuck inside my house, sick as a dog…

Just keeping it real for all you blogstalkers out there!

Lesson #1-Daytime television is for the birds. No, birds are lovely. Daytime television is for snakes, spiders and rats.

Lesson #2-Joel, the engineer turned missionary would have been a really good nurse.

Lesson #3-Your house looking like this every now and then isn’t the end of the world.

Lesson #4-Did I mention that daytime television is completely unrealistic and you are too sick to watch TV if you are lured into think about purchasing Cindy Crawford’s newest beauty line. PUT DOWN THE REMOTE AND GET INTO BED! I agree with my friends Seleta and Darby!

Lesson #5-Joel eating this for dinner a few nights out of the year month isn’t the end of the world.

Lesson #6-Even if you think you are better you probably need one more day of rest otherwise you end up home from work for another 3 days.

Lesson #7-You have precious friends when you open the front door and find this…**Thank you, Elizabeth!!**

Lesson #8-Your worth, as a person, is not based on your performance or lack thereof. Not in ministry, not in your spiritual life, not in your marriage or lack of efforts with family and friends. Thank you, “Search for Significance” + being sick from work and life for toooo long.

Lesson #9-You are not irreplaceable. God is sovereign and doesn’t need your help, yet graciously chooses to use you.

Lesson #10-God is NEVER NOT at work! I was sick as a dog, yet praising God for how He used one of my Junior Bible study girls!

(message from her)–“I thought I would share a little story to encourage y’all to praise God for the cool things He is doing on our campus! I met with a sweet freshman girl named, Amber, last Wednesday. She’s from Iowa and grew up knowing basically nothing about Jesus. She’s really close with the girls in my Bible study (she lives on their hall).

I asked her about her spiritual background and she explained her story saying she knew very basic things, but really knowing nothing at all. She was cute with asking me questions about if she should take notes at Crusade meetings because she sees everyone else doing it, but she didn’t know what to write down from the talks. She said she had a desire to know God, but she hadn’t accepted Christ as her Savior. So, that presented the perfect opportunity for me to challenge her with the “Would you like to know God personally” booklet. At the end of the booklet she decided to receive Christ right then and there!

It was amazing, y’all. She’s so excited about her new faith and learning more about what it means to be a Christian. We met for follow-up and she totally understands the decision she has made.

God is clearly at work on our campus, y’all. Keep trusting in Him and He will present opportunities for you to share His Gospel!”

AMAZING!! Such a wonderful lesson learned for me, her AND Amber!!! At least valuable lessons can be learned from something as yucky as being sick!

What lessons are you learning these days?
