The final days

Posted: December 14, 2010 in Uncategorized

Well, it’s finally here. The very last week of the internship. Five days from now it will be all but over. It’s been a journey – that’s for sure. I’m looking forward to the time after, when I can sit in the prayer room and really digest some of the teachings I have heard over the past 11 weeks.
Today, I’m really looking forward to a couple of things. One, my parents arrival Thursday night. I’m so excited to see them and for them to spend a few days here. Second, OneThing!
Still not sure what I’m doing for Christmas, but I’ve got a couple thoughts. Any suggestions??

Global Bridegroom Fast

Posted: December 8, 2010 in Uncategorized

It’s day 3 of GBF, and I’m on my 4th day without caffeine, and I’m a little tired but not doing too bad. Not as sleepy as I thought I’d be. Maybe a bit grumpy. I’m actually getting some homework done too. I’m hoping to have it all done by Friday, so I can have it checked off the list then.

I realized today that this week is probably our last real week of teaching. Next week is the Global Bridegroom Fast (GBF) and pretty much the whole missions base will be fasting for seven days. We have already been told we will be in the Prayer Room all of next week. The week after, Week 12, will be probably filled with new staff orientation and practical things like that, so for the most part, we’re done.
I mean there are still things to finish up, homework assignments and the like, so I’m really happy about the PR time, and a chance to get it all done, but WOW!
And the best part is, I’m feeling pretty good about it all.
I have gotten some real experience in prophetic ministry, healing ministry, and even outreach. I’ve gained confidence in each area, and want to continue building strength. I’ve gotten a much better grasp on the end-times, and have finally felt the desire to pursue the understanding of Scripture in that area.
I’m even wanting to participate in the GBF willingly! Not just because I know I should. I’m not saying it’s gonna be easy, but I want more desire for Him, and I now understand this is how I will get it. By really pressing in, and going for it.
I’ve got a clearer understanding of what my mission is, and a beginning on how I’m going to walk it out. My perspective on what I used to call “support raising” has changed, and I now realize the Biblical dynamic of it – it’s about sharing the burden, by inviting others to come alongside me, to partner with me, so I can give myself fully to the work God has called me to. I even have the Scriptural basis for it, from the Old Testament to the New Testament.
All in all, this has been a productive time, and I’m so glad I ws able to come. And what’s more, I am thrilled I get to stay a bit longer, to really get the full benefit of the training, and spend some time in the Prayer Room going over the notes, and meditating on them, to get the most out of it the Lord has for me. I even get to be here to practice the skills I have learned, (really the gifts I have learned that I have), and work in a couple areas I’ve wanted to for some time – sound and media.
God is SO good.
