Graduation

So, for the last 9 months I have been a student through the Master’s Institute School of Ministry (out of Minnesota USA for anyone who may feel led to go back to school.)

This was a hard road many times in many different ways.  Starting with when I got in the truck to go to class I drove 82 miles 1 way every week and living here in AZ during the winter months with the snowbirds who would come out of the woodwork.   Ok so I overcame that battle by leaving early (instead of leaving at 4 and getting there by 6:30 often frazzled, I left at 2 and was there by 3:15 and I could relax, grab dinner and just chill out.The ride home was often times more reflective and with a focus on  God.

Then there was the thinking that I knew all of this stuff because I had been privileged to sit under these teachers elsewhere..  This is where God worked on me the most and taught me to always remain humble and be in Him.  His love and grace smothered me during this insane times is so humbling.  I learned a lot more than I knew because I asked God to change my heart and open my ears and He was faithful and did so.  God is so good to us His children.

Then of course their were the assignments that I could not do and wanted to quit class right then.  I learned that in surrendering to Him those things He ALWAYS showed up at just the right moment and the project and assignment got done just in time..  Always looking out for His children (even when we get in the way He will work it out for our good). I have to admit that these are some of the neatest areas that God revealed to me the most important lessons.  You see, He helped me heal in the area of past woundedness and allowed me to be free.  So in Him I am free.

Ok these are just a few areas of how God moved me.  There are many more areas to share but God has not allowed me to do that just yet.

So, I don’t know what the next step is going to be except for now it is a time of rest and healing for me.  Then Father and I will discuss what is next after this season.  SO below enjoy the pictures of me getting my diploma and the 3 people who without their support and encouragement and prayers I could not of done this.  Back row are 2 of my mentors and the front row is me and my mom.

About leftnfree

I am a flawed Christian who loves Jesus more than anything. Originally from the east coast of the US (Philadelphia, Pa). Currently living in Az. I am a single female who has no children. I do have a bunch of nieces and nephews. I do love to dance, swim, sing, travel, and play. I love dogs and am allergic to cats an sulfa. I don't drink or do street drugs or abuse prescription drugs. I love the USA and am ashamed of some of the folks that are running the show in DC (both parties). Personally, I don't think that our founding fathers intended for the service of our members of congress was supposed to be a life long job. I think that they meant for it to be short term. I love all kinds of movies but classics are becoming my favorite more and more. I do not like much of what is on television today because the world of make believe "reality tv" is unreal, and the rest well I just don't like the animation programs either. I love Jesus and try to serve Him with all I am becoming more an more like Him daily. I may stumble and I may make a mistake but I can always count on the loving arms of my Jesus and my Heavenly Father to come pick me up again and help me stand. I am not afraid of trying or failing but I am afraid of bragging and doing it on my own. I try to love all people and help all people (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't). But even in that God is my all an all. That is who I am. Nothing more and nothing less. What you see is what you get. Like I said at the beginning I am flawed. I am human, and while I am not sinless I am able to sin less and help others to learn how to sin less. God is good. I hope that you enjoy reading the things that I write.
