So, two weeks ago we had our last Christian Union of the term, and until September.
Thats one year of university over and done with. Crazy right?
Five of us took over the leadership of the Christian Union in January this year and it has just been a blessing to see how He, our amazing God is working here. We’re all first years, so we didn’t really have a clue as to what we were doing or how things functioned, yet, we’ve been so encouraged and amazed so far!
We’ve looked at the spiritual disciplines, handed out creme eggs to ravenous students around campus, provided free tea and toast to a club full of people, heard incredible stories from a Bornean, and much much more. But, ultimately, we’ve spent amazing times building each other up, praying together, worshipping together, and watching, and telling of how God is using us and working in our lives.
I personally have seen God’s provision in providing me a place in halls after a lot of praying and waiting. I have known His guidance, and have seen His plan fall so perfectly into place. I can, and have seen the continual work that He is doing in me, looking at where i have come from, and where i am now. And, within this monstrous exam period I’ve just waded through, I’ve been taught how to trust again. My problems and worries in reality are small, and even smaller when they are placed in my Creator’s hands. Laying everything over to Him with the knowledge that he cares, and knows what is best, (1 Peter 5:7) has been so liberating and has taught me that nothing is possible in my own strength, and that i need to cling on to Him more than ever.
So, for September we have even bigger visions, even crazier dreams with the largest expectation of what God is going to do right where we are. Please join us on this journey, and please pray that a snippet of God’s Kingdom will come down in this South East London metropolitan.
1 Peter 2:9- But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
