The Past Few Weeks

These past few weeks in Salem, Oregon consisted of tulip fields, lectures, wednesday night soccer, homework, typhoid pills, drinks at thompson's and applebee's, introduction to skype, more homework, hanging out with my vroomie, trying to tackle group projects, painting, avatar, pulled leg muscle and gnarly bruise, hiking some beautiful waterfalls with friends, and learning so much about God.
God has been teaching me so much lately and most of it I cannot even express into words. The topic this past two weeks was Character and Nature of God and Ordinary Christianity. What it means tounderstanding God's heart and love for others, apathy, what it means to be passionate and truly seek God's calling for your life. Ultimately, His word is clear. He commands us to live not as the world lives. I love this quote by Francis Chan, from the book Crazy Love, "Something is wrong when our lives make sense to unbelievers." The question is not should we go into the mission field, it is should we stay home? Christ already commanded us "to go into all the world," why are we sitting around and what are we waiting for? This next week is Spiritual Warfare...to be continued...
