This weekend has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I served my church and helped and felt so in community. Honestly, to be in an environment where you can talk to anyone and they will listen, where everyone is a brother or sister, where you can meet new people and befriend them almost immediately, is so comforting and exciting. It’s a place full of strangers for me, but I feel at home here. I’ve met so many people and it’s crazy being in a place away from home and having friendships with them where I feel like I can tell them so much. Just serving and helping has been awesome.
And today the sermon was just incredible. I was reminded of the love and grace of my Savior. The world may reject me, but Jesus won’t because He loves me and there is hope for me. I wasted too much time thinking otherwise and it’s an amazing feeling knowing that even in the midst of your brokenness and sin, there is hope and love for you.
Man, and then worship was even more intense. We were a sea of broken people, filled with the Holy Spirit and absolutely grateful and overjoyed because of the kind of love that exists for us. Then we all just hung out afterwards and had good food and good laughs, I’m still so blown away by these people and this church and everything that happened this weekend.
I’m so excited for what God has in store for me here.
Happy Easter everybody.
