Words from a CBM Intern

Written by Staciajohna Randle “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:15-18 When I first started the CBM Internship, I started to understand in depth what Christianity ...

Dear Future CBM Intern

Written by Sarah Hardison Dear Future CBM Intern, This year is going to be one of the best and hardest years of your life. You will grow in your walk with the Lord, continually experience opportunities to be pushed out of your comfort zone, and make lifelong memories you will cherish forever. While you are a part of this internship you will hear things like “stretching your spiritual muscles,” “do it until it hurts and do it a little more,” and “developing good habits.” These are important and hard things that are a part of being an intern! As someone who was once an intern, please allow me to impart some “alumtern” wisdom, ...

Personal Learning Experience Through the Five Core Values

Written by Myles Morrison    When you join the CBM Internship, you are introduced to five program core values. These are five different areas for you to learn, grow, seek, explore, and demonstrate throughout your time as a CBM Intern and beyond. Some of them were harder to understand and practice than others, but without the accountability and practice of these things I would not be where I am today, better equipping myself for ministry.    Humility: This one was a really fun one to practice. I am often very prideful and big-headed, so a lot of the time I have to do the opposite of what I would typically say and do. I am ...

I Can Serve God With My Hands

Written by Christella Ledford, Team #11 There are approximately 458 Bible verses that contain the word “hands.” It is interesting to read the many stories that involve how hands can be used: some for evil and some for good. This subject must be important to God, whether He is instructing us, discipling us, or loving us. He tells us to work with our hands and to present that work to Him for His approval. We see the humility of Jesus using His hands to break the bread, serve the wine, and wash the feet of His disciples, and by performing miracle after miracle by feeding the multitudes, healing the sick, and raising the dead. We should strive ...

Faith over Fear

Written by Staciajohna Randle, Team #12 Fear is something that I struggled with a lot in my life. Fear will cause us to be blind and act out instead of thinking. The word fear in Greek is phobos meaning dread and terror. I wrote a whole page about faith over fear, and I felt great about it. But then George Floyd died on May 26, 2020, and little did I know that the whole society was going to change. All the confidence I had about having faith and no fear was suddenly all thrown out the window. The riots began and my faith was put to a test and I failed it. I was so fearful for my family and friends’ safety.  Everything was being destroyed ...
