Harvest University has ended. What a ride it has been. Today’s final elective was by far my favorite elective thus far and Pastor James MacDonald’s final session was a challenge and encouragement. I am leaving this conference refreshed and with a renewed passion for my great God. Not only that, but God has answered prayer: I have direction.

Harvest U 2014 Day 4: Pretzels and People
Every night, I’m finding myself more and more unable to articulate the experiences of the day. Perhaps it’s the culmination of late nights and early mornings, perhaps it’s the massive amount of teaching I’m receiving, perhaps it’s the overwhelming greatness of God, or perhaps it’s the combination of all three and some. Continue reading “Harvest U 2014 Day 4: Pretzels and People”
Harvest U 2014 Day 3: Christ In Me
I am overwhelmed and at a loss for words because of the greatness of my God. How He speaks to me. How He knows me. How He has already won. How He is always with me. How He is in control of my life. Continue reading “Harvest U 2014 Day 3: Christ In Me”

Harvest U 2014 Day 1: Chocolate Cake Shake

Today ended with a discussion about the finer points of Cars, Planes, and How To Train Your Dragon with a pastor’s two kids. Today a team from my church, Harvest Bible Chapel Lancaster, drove twelve hours to Chicago in order to participate in Harvest University, which kicks off tomorrow evening. Continue reading “Harvest U 2014 Day 1: Chocolate Cake Shake”

Green Pepper Pinnacle
Life is complete when your name is etched in green peppers in pizza. The pinnacle of my existence has been reached. God, take me now.
As much fun as it was writing my name in a pizza, alas, that was not the sole purpose of my existence. And speaking of which, I’m still trying to figure that out. I’m not any closer to concrete answers–other than to glorify God…but in what capacity?–but God’s provided some cool opportunities for me this fall. I’m excited to see how God will use these opportunities to reveal His will for me.
