Tonight was my last Serving Team meeting. I won’t get into the whole word vomit about how I think this year went tonight… but tonight, what’s on my mind is just how surreal it feels that junior year is ending.
It’s surreal that the seniors are leaving. They’ve been with me 3 years.
It’s surreal that I’m an ex-outreach coordinator.
It’s surreal how far God has brought me.
God is crazy. haha. Freshmen year I was so shy. The seniors can vouch for just how shy I was. Christine was my mommy and I never left her side. I never spoke up.. and when I did, I was crazy nervous and my voice would shake so much that they nicknamed me the goat. It wasn’t until Citylight’s spring break of my freshmen year when people actually heard me speak up about things.
I never thought I’d be on Serving Team… especially not Outreach Coordinator. God can really change you in a short amount of time. The Freshmen and Sophomores don’t believe this obnoxiously loud stalker/creeper crazy person was once a timid and shy Freshman.
How did I get here? I can’t help but think, “My life is so weird”. In a good way though.
I hear a lot of people say that they want to be less shy… better speakers… bolder… etc. I absolutely believe that God wants to transform us and mold us to be more like His son. Passionate.. bold.. loving in such a profound maybe even outrageous way. :-) He doesn’t want to not transform you! Jesus says, “Come, and I will make you fishers of men.” We were meant to win souls! And God is absolutely committed to shaping us. So this is good news… for those who are wondering if they can be changed, knowing from my own experience, oh yes you can be by God’s grace and working power!
So… God is good. He’s completely transformed my life in just 2 years. He is good and so committed to loving me and shaping me.. and He is committed to loving and shaping you.
