What to say….

11 09 2008

So its getting late and as I mess around on the computer I felt compelled to write a blog. The only problem is, I dont really know what to write about. So I will just ramble a bit until I feel content.

Today I was having a one-on-one with one of my RA’s, Kat, and somehow the topic of blogging came up and she kind of looked at me a little funny. It made me laugh because I knew exactly why. For some reason out here in Phoenix, blogging is not as “cool” as it is out in Cali it seems. I think out of all nine of my RA’s last year and my eight RA’s this year, none of them have even entertained the thought of having a blog. Out here, its just not cool. Kind of interesting to me. People at Cal Bap blog like its going out of style. If you find one person from CBU, you are pretty much guaranteed to find at least 20 other people’s blogs through different people’s blog rolls. Just one of the many differences out here in AZ at GCU in comparison to CBU and Californ-I-A.

Enough about blogging while blogging. The second week of school is about to come to an end. The past month and a half has been like a big whirlwind. Got two new bosses, a new set of student leaders, RA training, Welcome Week, wife started Nursing school, still taking Masters classes. Its been pretty busy for me as for every other person that works at a University I am sure. But needless to say its been a draining month and a half. A good month and a half but draining. Its been exciting to see how GOD has been moving this year here at GCU even through all the chaos. The way he has worked through our student leaders and how much he has blessed us with great students this year which has be a huge answer to prayer. I have been blessed with another amazing RA staff and am really blessed to have Sarah back again as my GA. Its been great having Ruth here and experiencing life with her and with my new family out here. The opportunities to exercise my gifts and talents out here have been really exciting for me. Today I was able to lead worship in our chapel with one of our Life Leaders, Richie. It was a blessing. It felt refreshing to be able to use the talents and passions that God has given me. I feel so much more alive in Him when I use the talents and gifts that He has given me with things that scare me to death, like leading worship. I feel that too many times in my life I found myself being held back by my fears. Fear of doing things in areas that I know I am gifted in. Thats the problem with fear I guess. It holds us back. Sometimes I wonder what my life would look like if I stopped letting my fears dictate my actions. Sometimes I also wonder what earth would look like if us as Believers stopped living out of fear of our God given talents and started exercising those talents. How much more great would our impact be for His Kingdom? Not that the Lord needs us to make His kingdom known but you get my drift. So maybe we should all step off that ledge that keeps holding us back and see and experience how beautiful this life could be….
