DNOW 2014 (2)
Humility. That's what this weekend's Discipleship Now was about. A church camp minus the camp, dnow's are set up for an amazing time focused on God and people.
This DNOW was awesome, just like the rest of them. It's an whole new experience for me, being one of the people leading the girls group. Sometimes it feels natural, and then other times I have no idea what to say or what to do.
One thing I learned early on in the weekend is that surrendering is not something that you can do on your own. Here I am, at the alter trying to surrender my life, then with two hands on my back, I am reminded of the fact that I'm making it about me and my ability abilities again (Philippians 3:12). This kinda defeats the whole purpose of humility, you know? It's scary to depend on others too, especially with something as important to you as your spiritual life. But God has shown me who I can trust, especially when you get to see other people's faith lived out, not played out.
I also learned that I would love to be in a position to make things like this happen more often. These kids had an encounter with Jesus this weekend...some of them for the first time. I know that some of them won't be the same, because it's all about changing your mindset and building bonds of unity. I want to be apart of that in other people lives, and help others grow closer to God.
So that was my weekend, just another intense time in my crazy life where I can unplug and focus on, The One who made me, me.
