How, then, can they call on the name of the one they have not believed in?
And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?
And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?

Wait. what?

It is the craziest thought that I have 2 weeks left of my SOMD. Wait, excuse me what? That's not real life.
But yeah. The past 3 weeks have been especially incredible.
I guess I'll just highlight some of my biggest points from these weeks but in reality there are so many things I could say and would love to tell you about.

Last week we learned about the elements, which are representative of different personality traits. We learned about ourselves and what we can bring to a team/group setting and also how to better love and relate to others.
It was really helpful to learn these things because I think we've all had at least one moment when someone has told us to tell them a few things we like about ourselves. I will admit that I have always struggled to come up with even the most surfacy, half-true compliments. But I really learned so much about who I am at the core, which helps me to even further walk in assurance of who God has made me to be.

But more importantly during these weeks I feel has just been the concept of pursuit. Sometimes I get lost. It's really easy for me to get lost in all of the things I have to do and all of the things that I'm learning and everything else that is tugging at my attention. I used to get lost in the 'work' mentality. But when I just stop and talk to Jesus like he's my best friend, it is seriously just the best thing. It's the times when I just press pause on my mind and listen. It's the peace that comes from just being and knowing that His love remains the same even in those times. It's the assurance that He is more concerned about me as his child than anything I can do for him. The same is true for you. Guys. I just really love Jesus.  And these things seem so simple. But I think sometimes the most obvious, simple truths are the ones we overlook. This is definitely true for me, anyway.

This week our school leader is speaking on Developing Your that should be pretty good I guess. But seriously though I am really excited/interested/maybe a teeny little bit scared to pursue God for my next step and get to the heart of what God made me for. You know. No big deal.

So that's just a little blurb for you.
Love you byeeeeeeee.
