How God Prepared the Way

Written by Jerrid Currey   Ever since I was a child, I have been told that God had a plan and a purpose for my life, but I never really understood what that meant. For years I would wonder, “What is God’s plan for my life? What does He want me to do? Would I want to do what He has called me to do?” It wasn't until recently that He started to show me how He wants to use me in my life. Right now I am currently an intern for Children Bible Ministries and this is how God prepared the way for me to come to this internship. It all started about a year ago when my friend and mentor, Sean, recommended me to help out at a camp that I ...

Humility: What is it? Why is it important? How do we practice it?

By Andrea Woodworth Humility is one of the five Core Values of the CBM Internship Program. Out of all the biblical principles we could focus on, why humility? Well, for one thing, the internship is specifically designed to get young people out of their comfort zone and introduce them to what full-time ministry is really like. It’s hard to come to a place of learning if you already think you know everything. It’s no coincidence that in many scripture passages humility and wisdom go hand-in-hand. Here are a few of those passages from the book of Proverbs:   “Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” (Proverbs ...

CBM Intern – 3 Ways to Stay Focused on Christ

By CBM National intern,  Priscilla Depew - Hello everyone! My name is Priscilla Depew. I started the CBM National Internship back in September, and one of the things I've had to learn while being here has been focus.

Whenever your mind begins to think on whatever is ...

CBM Intern – Looking Back, Looking Forward

By CBM National intern,  Stephanie Schwan - Well, here we are. We made it, folks. The year is almost over and Christmas and the New Year is upon us! Where did the time go? For many of us, myself included, it flew by. 2016 has been a whirlwind of controversy, change, loss, and upheaval worldwide, but also of learning, growth, building, and hope.  We know who is in control of it all, whether it feels like a time of unprecedented hope with a bright future gleaming ahead, or the brink of certain disaster with doom and despair looming on every side. Whether things seem worse than ever or better than ever, we know the One who reigns forever. We ...

Teamwork -Two are Better than One, Three are even Better

By CBM National intern, -  Mark Martens John Donne states in one of his poems, “No man is an island, Entire of itself, Every man is a piece of the continent, A part of the main.”   If there is one thing this rotation has reminded me of, it’s the importance of teamwork. Now don’t get me wrong, I have known about teamwork for a while, but God has made its importance rather evident to me recently. In the past, there have been times I have tried to do things on my own, but every time I have done this, it usually has not ended well for me. While on my rotation at Camp Grace as a CBM National Intern, I was given the ...
