Swimming Upstream

       If life is a river, then pursuing Christ requires swimming upstream. When we stop swimming, or actively following Him, we automatically begin to be swept downstream. While we are not specifically swimming downstream, we are slowly floating away from Christ. It isn't a conscious choice, but it is nonetheless happening if little in our lives propel us toward Christ. 

"Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."       
                                                                                           James 2:17

Bursting with Pride

Spring is upon us here at Faith. That means beautiful blossoms outside of the walkway to Gray, the baby beginnings of plans for a fresh new year next semester, AND the Faith talent show/movie night!!!

Maybe I hold people on too high of a pedistol.
Maybe I am just a simpleton in these matters.

I just could not be more grateful for the people of this college. My spirit beamed as I watched my classmates and friends and leaders of the student body star in their homemade films and showcase their astounding creativity.
It just totally cracks me up what people come up with!

And as much fun as I had sitting in my seat watching them make (somewhat) fools of themselves. I couldn't help thinking how much more fun it must have been to be right in the middle of it. It makes me so happy to think of the personalities God has blessed us with here on campus. He brought us all here together to prepare further for work in His ministry, and it thrills me to think of how God will use every unique person on this campus to glorify his name in the far corners of the world.

And I will be able to say "I saw HIM break a guy's collarbone in a movie they made when we were in college!"...

Oh the memories.
Did I mention I love FBBC? :-)
