So this week has been super crazy! I had two interviews, two tests, and was in a van with seven other people for a total of fourteen hours this weekend! Its been quite the adventure!
This past weekend I got the chance to travel with a worship team and also the Improv team here at MNU. We went to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, which is about seven hours away from Olathe. There was so much to this trip and we had so much fun! All of this caused me to forget to take pictures of everything. I am deeply sorry about this, but I can tell you that we all had a wonderful time there. We were also all kind of worried about the weather because there was supposed to be some significant snowfall right when we were going to be heading out for Iowa and also when we were heading back! We ended up being perfectly fine and had no troubles getting there and back. It was definitely an answer to prayer.
So that is just a little summary of what’s been happening in my life here at MNU lately. Things can get pretty overwhelming sometimes with business of homework and social life, but I know for me personally, it is stretching me every single day to realize how to handle situations and balance everything in my life. Through every trial in life there is a lesson to be learned. Here’s a verse that’s applicable to that!:
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” -James 1:2-4
If you haven’t read the book of James, go read it NOW. It’s full of wonderful things. :]
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will reviece the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” -Colossians 3:23-25
I think this is exactly what worship is. We can give God the glory in everything we do and work at everything will all of our strength because we know we are serving the Lord Christ. :] Even if it’s something as simple as doing our homework.
So guys, sorry I don’t have a lot, but be expecting a video of one of our basketball games next week! We are hosting a tournament here and I hope the video helps you get a better view of how these sporting events take place here at Mid-America!
Until next time,
-Heather Rose :]
