Christmas, New Year, and a lot of great pow has kind of got in the way of a blog update from school!
Yet we walk into a New Year with a new prophetic word from Jamie, 'TRUST'.
What does that look like for us at school? A new year where we need to trust for finances for missions trips and school fees, for work provision... and trusting for what our paths will look like beyond school in May. In a few weeks time, we'll be halfway through the School of Ministry.
Over Christmas we were given the chance to work with the county's social services to bless the elderly in the area who were expecting to be alone with beautiful gift hampers. We made prophetic art cards to go alongside the hampers, we decorated the church for Christmas... It was a season of creating and blessing and we were stoked to be given the opportunity to partner with people who work so hard to bless our community.
Even with no school for three weeks, God still continues to do stuff within us - in our process and in our journeys. Some of us volunteered at The Station (the youth camp here in Mammoth), others balanced shifts at restaurants and coffee shops while trying to fend off the Mammoth plague... The advantage with being part of such a small school is that we are still so connected with community. There are no out of school blues - we still get to see each other, pray with each other and do life.
So when we go back to school on Monday, community life will continue. We won't be 'picking God up' again. But I know we'll all come back with a renewed excitement for what God is going to do this year... Whether it's in Switzerland on the missions trip, or here in Mammoth.
'Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. Acknowledge him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight.' Proverbs 3:5-6.
What does this look like for your 2016?
