In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth! :)

God is good!
What would we do if He never created the earth? Ha, we probably wouldn't know because we wouldn't be here. God's creation is beautiful. We are not worthy of what He has given us, yet He gives it to us freely. 
He Loves YOU! 
God loves you-in case nobody has told you that today, well He loves you. Not just you, but every single little tiny thing about you! He loves you more than anyone on this earth ever could love you! Think about how much your parents love you, now multiply that by a million to the square root of a million---that's how much God loves you!

Tell others about Him!
God calls us to tell others about Him. In Matthew 9:35-38 Jesus said "Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, 'The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.'" Jesus calls us to tell others about Him. There are so many lost people in the world. Lost people that sit right next to us in class. Lost people that are in our families that we can't even muster up the courage to bring Jesus up. God wants people to know about Him. Most people are reluctant to going to church because they will be judged by the members of the church. What can we do about this? Reach out to people! Go where those who don't know Christ are. Be brave and go in the power or Christ. 

God's calling for me...
I know what God has called me to do. It is so evident in every part of my life. God has called me to be an evangelist. God has called me to preach the Good News of Jesus wherever I go. I am not in college to learn about accounting; I am in college to tell others about what God has done in my life and how He has impacted me. I have been a missionary the past two summers. I have already applied to be a missionary for next summer. I applied to go to Kenya or Indonesia with CMFI's Internship program called REACH. Please pray for me in this decision. I am waiting to hear back about whether I have been accepted to the program. If I get accepted, I will need to raise a lot of support to go international and I know that God will provide. He always provides for me. God is somehow just that good. There's no doubt in my mind that God is calling me to go international next summer and I can't wait to see where He leads me. 

Prayer Requests 
Pray for the people I have been reaching out to on campus.
Pray for my future missions opportunities.
Pray for patience as I await to hear back from REACH.
Pray that I would spend time studying and focusing on school.
Pray that Jesus would be known on Trine's campus.
Pray that God's Will would be done in my life.

In Christ,
Brandi :)

ps. I'm new to this whole blogging thing, but I am excited about starting this new thing. I think God can use this in big ways. :)
