This past week I had two seperate meetings with girls I am mentoring and they both brought up a topic I’ve been struggling with since COVID started. It had nothing to do with the book we are reading together, or the topics we were discussing in our meetings, they just felt that topic so heavy on their hearts that they both needed to talk about it.
They have no idea how badly I needed to hear what they were talking about, or that God was talking through them. But because of them I felt the Holy Spirit tugging on my heart, and I felt convicted to work on that area of my life.
I love these moments where I can see God’s hand at work.
Philippians 2:13 “For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”
Serving in student ministry has looked a little different since COVID-19 caused schools to shut down and life to shift. The butterflies of prom and the nervousness of graduation were replaced with a stay-at-home order and senior year dreams crushed. They are completely devastated. They are aware there are worse things going on in the world right now but this is a major time in their lives that they have all been looking forward to for years.
I figured I needed to do something to help sweeten this bitter time! I want so badly to hug all of my girls but I can’t. So I settled for video chats, phone calls, texts, and brownie deliveries. Hopefully this will all blow over by the summer and we can gather as a group to praise the Lord for keeping us healthy and safe during this time.
