Upon reflection of the last fews years (I became a whole-heartedly follower of Jesus June 3rd, 2009) I’ve realized that Christ has been sactifying me in humility, preparing me for this season. He has showed me more and more about His nature and Character of surrendering Himself to the Father so that the Father’s purposes would be made known and manifest through Jesus.
This last spring, while at YWAM I found out the night of the soccer banquet I would not be captain for the upcoming season. As a senior this fall, I am thankful for the preparation God did in my heart to lead without a title. I have been humbled and sanctified through suffering, through trials and testing of my dedication and faithfulness to the calling as a leader without the position and respect of being the captian of the 2011 Northwestern Womens soccer team.
I am thankful for the trails and tests, although very difficult, because I have had the gracious opportunity to witness the joy in sanctification of younger girls through my example.
Praise God for his timing and holiness, even when you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Its NOT about you, it’s about His eternal glory.
