I guess I didn't really tell you how I ended up here with this blog and all of you reading it :-) 2 1/2 years ago I was struggling with my faith and by best friend asked me if I wanted to start going to church with her. She suggested RH and I had been a couple times before so we dove in. Three months later I was the Concordia Campus Life Group leader. I did this for the past 2 years while attending Concordia and hung up the towel in May when I graduated. I loved every minute of it because I was with 5 other girls who knew me and were at the same place in life. Since graduating, I felt like I was missing something. I had joined a life group but it just wasn't doing it for me. I knew I needed something else. I heard about Circles and blindly without knowing anything, applied, interviewed, and got accepted. Once accepted I found out the details and honestly this will be a challenge for me that I am very excited about. I have put God in the back seat and I know that it needs to change. I am so excited to delve into Circles with everyone and hear your stories, responses, and how God is working in all of our lives.
I know I mentioned before that after this Friday, I am done with student teaching. I am a person with a schedule that LOVES to book myself solid. This will be the first time that I have no schedule and will live day to day waiting for that call to substitute teach. I thought that I would be scared and worried with nothing to do but I feel that God is slowing me down to be a part of Circles. So what if I have no steady job and no income, live with my parents, and my car is broken with no repair date set. I have no anxiety and am at total peace because God is going to take care of me and he will provide for me when I need it.
