First term of uni life!

December 12, 2008 Suzie

I have finally got myself a blog! Thanks gabi!

I can’t believe that I am just a week away from the end of my first term at Beford uni! It’s crazy! I have to say that it has been quite a term; emotional, lonely, exciting, scary, overwhelming…and so much more. But the one thing i know for certain is how faithful my God is! It has been so exciting learning more about Him; who He is, what He’s like, what He’s done and what He’s doing in me, through me and around me. I feel so completely overwhlemed that God is using me here in this place for His glory. At times i have wondered why I am here but God has convicted me time and time again that he wants to use me here in this very place with these very people! What a privilege!

There are so many things i could dwell on about this term but maybe i’ll share what’s going on right now. An incredible thing has happened…I have been asked to be on the CU committee after Christmas which i’m still getting my head around but wow! Such an amazing opportunity but i am so aware that I can only do it in Gods strength. Without Him i am nothing.

I have been thinking over a vision for the CU in my mind and it has been so exciting seeing how the holy Spirit has been convicting me, challenging me and growing a passion for Jesus within me! I do of course still have a very long way to go but it’s exciting knowing that He is changing me, working in me, making me more like Him.
At CU this term we have been going through Mark’s gospel…if you haven’t read it…READ IT!! it’s amazing! We’ve been talking a lot about friendship evangelism which is really exciting but i know that personally I lack so much a heart that wants to evangelise and wants to share the love of God with those around me..but why!? This question has got me thinking and talking and praying…

How much do i know God’s love in my life? Surely if i really grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ..’ wouldn’t I want to share it with everyone!?  So yeah i’m thinking i would love to spend some time with myself and particluarly the girls in my life and at CU really trying to get to grips with this love that we would really grasp and want to share it with those God has put in our life. After all God didn’t send Jesus to die for just me but ‘the world’.

A good friend of mine Luci sent me a book called ‘Secure in heart’ which is proving to be very valuable. I have come to see that insecurity is a huge thing not just for me but for a lot of people around me; christians and non. We are caleld by the world we live in to have security in our image, material things but this of course just makes us even more insecure. Our relay worker Nicky who has become such a good friend to me has encouraged me to think about where our confidence lies and I am excited to look more into this and hopefully help those around me that struggle with similar issues. This is still very much an idea in progress so prayers for how this develops would be much apreciated.
