This week was corporate week. This is where the students from all the DTS schools on campus gather together to worship as hear teaching together. Dan Bowman was our speaker this week and really challenged us on intimacy with the Lord. He shared his testimony and stories of how God has proved himself faithful in his life. One of which was his personal story about being imprisoned in Iran. It was an amazing time of hearing about Gods goodness and faithfulness. It was really amazing to see so many young people excited about Jesus! Across the whole room young brothers and sisters in Christ were praying for one another and encouraging each other. It is such a blessing to be a part of and I am so thankful to be here for this season.
One thing that challenged me this week was how I view my relationship with the Lord. So often my relationship with God is like a list:
Once I complete the "first task" I can get on with my day. Instead we were challenged to change our thinking. God should be the center and everything stems out of our relationship with Him. God is the center. I have seen this diagram before but it was just a good reminder that God wants to be a part of everything.
Thank you again for your prayers and support I feel so blessed.
