So I didn't think that being away from my support net, being in a strange situation and learning to be myself could be so hard...especially since it's on the beach. I'm here in Cannon Beach and I am finally at Ecola Bible School. It's a one year program where I will be having 2 new teachers every week studying books of the bible intensely and going through them at a break neck pace. When I showed up here and saw that it was sunny and we were at the beach I didn't think much of it because it hadn't sunk in that I was actually here and this was actually happening. Here we are a few days into it and i've already been humbled. It turns out that when you go off to bible college you still need your strong established friends in your life and you don't automatically learn how to discern the deep problems in your life that you relied on God and friends to help you process lol. I woke up gripped in anxiety and under a strange cloud of fear because i had placed so many expectations on myself and on how i needed to be and learn. But thankfully the Lord is bigger than my ability to try and contain myself. This place is wonderful. God is wonderful and his creation is amazing. We are studying creation science and evolution this week and its been an awesome refresher. One of the bigger blessings is the fact that The Lord placed me in a place of favor to run sound, this affords me an awesome ability to meet and talk with each of the speakers. One of the goals is that the message of Free Indeed reach everyone who comes through these doors to teach us. So please pray that the Lord would empower me to speak in boldness and give me favor with the various people who will be passing through here. Ecola is a conference center so there are many many other people who will be passing through here so there is much to do and many people to reach. But also be in prayer that I don't pressure myself to be someone i'm not and have it all together and get it all done today. Praise the Lord for his grace and his Love!
