This weeek was amazing.
I never really thought much of myself as far as impacting others.
I don't know.
I kind of classified myself as a number.
One in the 6,706,528,514 people in this world.
Yeah, me really changing anything or anyone?
I had a pretty eye opening experience because of
what someone else experienced this week at Falls Creek.
As a lot of you know..Josh and I havent known eachother too long.
But it took this week to see that I was placed in his life for a reason.
God wanted me there, to help him, and help him in his Christian walk.
I didnt really realize that by helping him without even realizing it, it helped me grow a lot as well.
I have never had someone tell me I have changed them..
I have never truly felt like I have been used by God ever to help someone that needed it.
This week has changed my perspective..and I have earned new friendships, amazing memories.
And an even bigger heart for a new focus..
Not on what I can do to make myself a "better" or "good" christian.
But what I can do to glorify God.
It has been an amazing week.
It has also given me the courage to step up as a leader in my youth ministry
that I had been afraid of receiving and becoming for the past couple of months.
Awesome week, that I definitely was not expecting..
but God knew it was coming.
Josh could say I have impacted him, and helped to change him.
But I could also say the exact same about him, and many of my other friends.
"For I know the plans I have for you,"declares the LORD,"
plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.
So life changing week to sum this up.
I had a few other pretty cool experiences during the week.
I might make another blog tomorrow of other events.
But one that specifically comes to mind is after a year of waiting......
I got to meet Evan!
Also known as NavySeal7989 on the site :)
Its weird to think how one message from two years ago..could have started a friendship almost a year after..and from there I actually got to hang with him!
That was extremely cool!!!
