Home Is Where He Is

I have been here a day shy of a month already. I have already completed my first week of school. I have already made community and friends that call me their own. I have already seen God fulfill the long awaited hopes and dreams of the past three years. And we are just getting started.

I won’t lie and tell you that everything has been hunky dory the whole time. But this is home for me. Not necessarily the place I reside, but my home is in God’s will and favor. I feel it all over this season. This is me, and this is where I am supposed to be. 

I have cried every day this week with relief. The relief of knowing that I am known and understood by God. He had this place prepared for me longer than I could ever imagine. After every day of school I have come out in awe, knowing that I get to do this for the next nine months. 

Our school days are filled with worship, lectures, and community that is all being led by people who will not stop being sold out for Jesus. 

Don’t even get me started on worship. They have an actual dance ministry here. Almost every worship service there are dancers on the stage ministering with the worship team. It feels so good to not feel alone. I get to watch them move with all their might, and I see myself reflected in them. I will have the opportunity in the next couple of weeks to audition for the dance team. I am elated at the idea of a community of dancers to grow with. 

Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry puts a strong emphasis on self ownership and equipping their students to lead. I have a feeling we will be thrown into the deep end really quickly, and I cant wait to start treading water again. 

Since we are a smaller school of roughly 650 students instead of 2,000, I truly believe this will be a year of tight knit community. I am honored to be one of those students, and I cherish the chance to grow in relationship with my fellow students. 

Overall, I am floored by God’s goodness. In the end, this is just another place that I get to walk with Him. I am so thankful that He is here with me, and always will be.
