This week I began my third and final year at Global as the media intern. I am finding it hard to believe it’s been over two years since my life was radically changed at a conference when some GSSM students prophesied over me. What an incredible journey/adventure! I’m not the same person I was back then (praise God for that!) and am learning to be comfortable in my own skin. (Can someone say, “At last!”?)
As the media intern I will be spending most of my time in the first-year classroom operating the system connected to the webcast for online students. That means I’ll hear a lot of good teaching! Today the first-year students (Thetas) introduced themselves, saying where they were from, what brought them to GSSM, and a random fact. It always amazes me to hear how God speaks to people and the things He will use to move them to action. There are retirees, graduates fresh out of high school, war veterans, nurses, filmmakers, to name a few. They have all come hungry and as a class carry something. It didn’t take long to find that out, lol.
We started the day with a fire tunnel and let’s just say that Holy Spirit showed up! I was putting up the words to the songs so I couldn’t join in…at first :) Towards the end I did, though, and this girl (who usually doesn’t feel anything) was having a hard time walking. When I finally got through it I fell to my knees kind of dazed. And this is the beginning of the year! Needless to say, my expectations for the year just went up a few notches, lol.
At one point yesterday we were asked to pray for the person beside us and a young man of around 30 was beside me, so I did. Afterward I told him that I felt God wanted him to know that it’s a new day. That’s when he shared his journey, how he’d received a number of prophetic words that didn’t make sense until recently, but that they all basically said the same thing–it’s a new day! :) God is good. Before the fire tunnel today I shared with him that I usually don’t feel things and that’s what he said with a smile, “It’s a new day.”
Yes, it most certainly was, and is, and always will be! Old things are passed away. He makes all things new :)
