What I've been up to.

So...the second week of college is over! Homework has piled up. :(

This week has been really good for me. God's been working in my life to stretch my comfort zone and learn to trust Him.

For example, I struggle with meeting new people. So I tend toward fear of man. I'm afraid of what people might think of me...their first impressions of me. I don't want to say something stupid. So God has really stretched me in this area. First, He has brought a bunch of guys into my life. Yes, through M28. It took me awhile to become comfortable talking to them (believe it or not, the world is made up of girls AND guys!). So I've grown in that area.

And then just being the first to introduce myself to somebody. Initiating the conversation. He has done this through my college classes, when I'm seated next to people I don't know. And also at the M28 big meeting. That was an excellent starter situation, because the point of the big meetings is to greet and meet visitors.

And also with the ODs, we have to knock on doors and it's a little scary doing that for the first time. I didn't know how the students would react. But God got me through the first OD!

I'm so glad, though, that God is working in me like this! It's exciting to know that He's shaping me to become stronger in my weaknesses.
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9

I anticipate all that the Lord is going to do this year in college and M28. It's so exciting to see God work!!! Praise Him!

In His Grip,
