Blessed

I know I've said this before, but I am so blessed. I'm blessed to have the family and friends I have, I'm blessed to go to a university committed to offering a Christ-centered education, and most of all I'm blessed to know and live in the saving grace of Jesus Christ.


Today was the first chapel in our new chapel building, and it was wonderful. Kari Jobe (a DBU alumni. whoop ;)) lead worship and we had a string of different uppity-up's speak, but all that was to be expected. I feel like lot of people complain about chapel (probably because we have to go twice a week every week), and even though their reasons sound valid, I just don't get it. For me there is something really special about getting to worship with other believers, especially 3000 of my closest classmates ;). But seriously, today it was beautiful...there's nothing like hearing a huge group of students sing...

"Jesus your name is power, breath and living water"


Listening to people worship never gets old.

That is possibly my favorite line in that song. !

But I know what you mean! I actually haven't been to a legit chapel yet, because the last one was "convocation", but I feel the same way - people describe it to me, like, "so there's worship, and some guy gets up and speaks about the Bible... totally boring!" - okay, that's exaggerated :) - BUT, I feel like it's kind of the same thing as Focus (the Wednesday night "church" worship stuff held at UMHB), which people get really excited about.

In any case, I feel like I'll like chapel too! :)
love ya girl!
