The fact that God chooses to use me and us in his sovereign plan never gets old to me. God is big enough and mighty enough to move mountains and change lives on his own, but God uses me—daily.
I was blown away last week by the girls I’m discipling here at the University of North Texas. They have grown so much in our discipleship times, and as I shared that with my staff, I was reminded how I was able to be part of this process.
Each week, I pour as much as I can into my girls. Most days I come out tired, but God has pursued and grown the girls drastically. There always is some sort of assignment that puts them in the word of God. Currently, we are intently studying the book of Philippians. I have humbly walked beside them in this process and taught them something I use in my own daily time with the Lord. As we have walked through this I was blown away by their responses and how they have applied Scripture to their own lives. God has been so good to my girls. He has pursued them. He has grown them. He has shown new mysteries of his name to them.
What have I got to do? I got to watch. I got to be used. I got to be blown away by my King once again.
My girls are making connections that they are here for one purpose—to proclaim Jesus’ name boldly. I get to pray for names each week with my girls. These names each represent a person; a person with whom they are having gospel conversations and who will hear of the sweet gospel because of my girls. I could not be more proud to be a part of a ministry that allows me to be used through discipleship, and I could not be more proud of my girls.
