When I consider the great love and mercy of my Savior, I am left speechless. His grace is beyond my understanding and I am far from grasping His goodness. Who am I, that He is mindful of me? The reality of His unending compassion is enough to compel my praise. And yet, with vain conceit I enter His presence and with petty requests I approach His throne. It is extremely easy to yield to our prideful nature and carelessly forget who we are and who He is.
I am not alone in this struggle to remember. Israel, the ...

Camp Ta-Pa-Win-Go is my last rotation of the internship. This past year has felt like the longest year of my life yet it has simultaneously felt like the shortest year of my life. In the one month that I have been serving in Watauga, Tennessee, I have gotten to witness three different styles of released time classes. The biggest thing I have learned is that God ALWAYS provides.
For those of you who are not familiar with Released Time in CBM, it is a program where CBM missionaries transport children from public schools to a nearby ...

The past couple years of my life I’ve had to make many decisions. What college do I go to? What do I major in? How do I spend my summers? In all those decisions God has provided guidance.

I had never understood why I needed to be in the Word of God all of the time. Last year I made the mistake of joining a different internship program that rarely had me in the Word, except on weekday mornings. I didn't realize how detrimental it would be to my spiritual life until month three when my life got dark. Without God being constantly around me and in my hand and in my thoughts, my vision for what He wanted me to do faded and I felt lost. So lost.
I am not blaming anyone for what happened to me last year. I knew I was ...
