Christmas is Coming!

First term is wrapping up and school is coming to a close before a long break. I’m super excited to go home and see my sisters and parents and friends, but at the same time it is going to be so weird to be away from this place. I honestly love Capernwray. From my roommates to my friends to the lectures to the atmosphere as a whole, I love each and every piece. Save maybe for some of the meals... It is such an encouraging place. I still struggle with different things, but I know there is always someone to listen to me and offer me advice or a prayer. I am truly blessed by the people here each day. It’s so odd to think that I’ve only been here for three months. And yet I have learned so much. Here’s just a few things:
  • God’s plan is superior
  • My life was given for a purpose, and that purpose is to serve my God with my whole heart
  • I have some amazing friends that love me a lot
  • Lectures and assignments have helped me come to know my Saviour on a deeper level
  • God’s plan for my life needs to be sought
  • My family is something I deeply cherish, enjoy, and love
  • God is a God of miracles

And that’s just a very, very few. I didn’t even go into details about what I’ve learned during lectures. But that is probably because I’m still processing all that information (info overload!). And I am grateful for each thing I have learned. It’s crazy to know that this year is equipping me for the rest of my life. As a Christian, my life should be used to tell the gospel and the more I’m here and the more I learn, the better equipped for life I am.
