We had our last Chapel for the year last Tuesday. This chapel is dedicated to Class Day, a day where new Class officers, SGA officers, and Honor Council members are sworn in.
Why was this day so bittersweet for me?
It's also the day where a new Campus Ministries President is appointed.
I passed my Campus Ministries President robe to Paula Fendley- a symbol of passing the responsibility of leading Campus Ministries from me to her for the coming year.
I am really excited that God is allowing Paula to be the President next year and I know she will follow God in whatever happens.
From what I hear, many new things and things that need a face lift will be happening all for God's glory next year.
The bittersweet part:
I won't be on Campus Ministries council anymore to experience it from the beginning. Yes, I had a chance of re-applying for council next year, but God told me not to.
I will be finishing up classes and preparing for my student internship next year and I won't have time to adequately do a good job on council.
It's not that I want the title or anything because I will still participate in CM activities. It's that a have found who I am in Christ so far through following Him by completely submerging myself in this ministry.
I have become a little more confident in my walk, a little more confident in the Word, and a little more confident in my God-given abilities because of Campus Ministries.
And, so much of my Judson career has been centered on this ministry. It's going to be hard to fill my time slots that once had "Campus Ministries" written on them with something else.
But one of the many lessons I have learned from serving on the council is that God will use His people whenever and wherever He wants to.
He isn't finished with me yet and I don't want Him to be.
So, I will gather my lessons learned and say adios and above all thank you God for allowing me to serve on the Campus Ministries Council-a soul changing experience.
