I had the honor and pleasure to lead worship for Bethel’s Senior Showcase chapel on Friday. Here are a few things I realized or can I say, been reminded of.
One, there are some absolutely incredible students on campus that pour in so much of their time to serve others and the college. I am blessed to have a few good friends who for the last three years have played in Alternate Chapel with me and used their gifts to serve the Lord and others around them. These same people joined me on stage Friday and they each have a special place in my heart.
Two, I really sensed the Spirit prompting me to focus on God’s love. I felt that students here needed to be reminded that “[His] love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on [them].” So we sang about that. We poured our hearts into the worship and in the end, I think, were amazed by His love.
Three, everyone has a story. I’ve known this for a long time because I have one too, but as the pictures scrolled in chapel I realized that there are still so many stories I haven’t heard but want to hear. There are so many of my classmates that I may never see again after these next two weeks. But the best part about it is, though it’s sad I may not see them, I know the Lord has great things in store for their lives because they have been challenged and changed by Bethel College.
Lastly, Bethel College is a place of progress. Where people come and go but they don’t leave the same as they once came in. Growing as a student is important, but evenmoreso, developing into a whole spiritual being is what Bethel is really about. And this school is a BLESSING to anyone who wants to attend. I want everyone to hear about Bethel College. I want everyone to consider this school and I desire that someday soon I can share my “story” or shall I say journey through Bethel and allow others to stand in awe of how GREAT our God is.
It’s going to be so hard to say goodbye.
