Driving on UT Campus in a Mini Van!

It has been a crazy busy last couple of months.  A good crazy busy!  Is that possible?  :)

Paul and I have started pouring into college students again and we LOVE IT!  I was on campus for the first time in over 9 years meeting with girls this week.  I sat in Presidential Court learning more about their hearts and what God is doing in their lives.  Love them!  God has given me 3 wonderful girls to pour into right now and I amazed at how I have connected with each one of them.  I can see myself in each of them in different ways.  My heart goes out to them because I know that this is such a pivital time in their life. 

I continually have to renew my mind and not give into the lies that the enemy would want me to believe.  When I was walking back to my car after meeting on campus with these sweet girls, I started thinking, "Who am I?  What do I have to offer these girls?  Am I kidding myself?  Can I really make a difference?" 

And then I heard the Lord whisper in my ear...

"You are mine sweet Kerry.  You just be faithful to do what I have called you to do and let Me handle the results.  I have called you to be here for such a time as this and I will use you for My glory."

And then I got in my mini van and drove off.  Humbling!  I wasn't the coolest  cat on campus but I was faithful!  :)

I am learning a lot about being obedient in following God wherever He leads.  It is not alway easy but it is sooooo rewarding. 

I am excited to see what God has in store for me and these sweet college students!

"Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass."  ~1Thessalonians 5:24

What a beautiful heart you have for the Lord! Didn't realized that you blogged, but started seeing your entries on facebook. I have the same feeling every time I am on campus. Brings back good memories! I was there as a staff member and had good Christian friends and younger students that I shared the Gospel with.

Love the verses you chose. By the way, here is one more verse that seems fitting for your blog that is also from 1 Thessalonians 5 (verse 11):

"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."

Thanks for investing yourself for the advancement of His kingdom! Bless you, Kerry.

Kerry, Your faithfulness and honesty have been an encouragement to me over these past few years! I know you're gonna be a huge blessing to these young women. I know God will use you. I know God will bless you with these girls in a way that you'll never expect.
Thanks for always being real.
