Class is in session. This thing we’ve been waiting for and working towards for the past three years is here and it feels so normal and extraordinary at the same time.
As I was driving to orientation I was praying and heard the Lord say to “Expect the extraordinary to become ordinary”. This has become my prayer: that these four amazing women who have stepped out into new territory will begin to experience extraordinary things so often they become ordinary. That over and over again in their lives will they level up to new experiences and places in the Kingdom.
It feels so right to have them here. While we absolutely needed the three year building period, it was also hard to not actually be doing the fun stuff. Up until a few days everything was theoretical. We’ve been telling people that this will work based on what God has shown us, but now we get to see it play out in real life. Now we get to see them go out and change the world with the message of Jesus.
Brad came home for lunch today, day two of classes, and said “They’re praying, reading, and writing, what more could we want?”
These students are diving right into the work. They are diving into spiritual development. They are forming relationships and community amongst themselves and others in our town. This is real life and it’s finally here.
Thank you Jesus.
