God is SO great. I love how He reminds us of His presence in our lives in such seemingly minute ways.
So throwback to 2 years ago. Welcome Days was the first day I heard HBU’s resident worship band, Refuge. That weekend was a tidal wave of emotional events that signified my growing up and moving on to the next chapter of my life. It was the night that I first remember RefugeStudent Director Cody sing these words to the song, “Give Me Faith.” Right then and there, I broke down and cried out to God, knowing that I would need Him to be with me every step of the way.
Now, almost two years later, I get the privilege of becoming the Student Director of Refuge starting Fall of 2014. I never would’ve imagined myself being granted the opportunity to serve God in such a way, to impact hearts and minds like Refugedid upon my arrival at HBU.
It gets better.
Yesterday at convocation, Refugeperformed for the last time this year, the last time before I’m allowed the joy and responsibility of ministering through song with them. What was the last song they sang, you may ask?
"Give Me Faith."
Needless to say I started bawling, praising God for reminding me of the moment He used Refuge to prepare me for the journey of a lifetime. I’m honored, thrilled and excited for what God has in store for me, for Refuge, and for HBU as a whole.
Thank you to all who came before me, especially Cody, who I’ve had the pleasure of calling a friend and brother in Christ. Thanks for impacting my life here before you even met me. I pray that I can do the same for others. “Give me faith to trust what You say,” Lord.
