Lovely night. Start of a new semester in University, really looking forward to graduating soon. Only one year left to go. Today was the first day of Chi Alpha small groups. We had a great time in communion, had snacks and got to know each other a little more. They came to the town home and enjoyed the comfort of this place, all thanks to my roommate, her candles and the vibe that she made this place have. I started off a little worried, and a little nervous but ultimately there was nothing to be worried about. My roommates were respectful and kind to them, we were able to spend time with God without any major distractions or interruptions. I was worried about their cars, because parking in the lofts is very limited but luckily no one got their cars towed.
I am very excited to be a leader this semester. I do not want to let them, or myself or God down. I have high expectations for myself, but I also desire to do my best and be a big help to the other leaders of Chi Alpha. I know I can do this, I have so many ideas but first I would like to go along for the ride some more, and have a little input and help but not really take over any projects. I think God is still equipping me because I do not feel ready to lead someone. Even though I am not equipped, God equips me, because he gives me the courage and strength to work on his behalf. Not that he needs me, but that he loves me and is trusting me with a portion. I want to be like the men in the story that invest the money they receive and actually have a harvest twice the size for when they’re master came back.
Lord may your will be done, give me the words to speak, and teach me what I need to know to be a great leader. Help me to genuinely care for the people you place in my path, to feel for them, remember them, and pray for them when they need it. Help me to be the Iron that sharpens them as you sharpen me. Teach me more so I can teach them more, and may I continue to be excited about these moments you bring before me. Lord we do this all for your glory, and for relationship with you. Because we love you and understand the dire need of the world to have a savior, we must first learn, and experience the joy and hope you have for us, so we can joyfully talk about it to others. God do not let us forget that we are doing this for your glory, to further your gospel, and your reach, and not to further our opinions, or thoughts.
