Yes, I have decided to start a blog about my life and how God is using me to fullfil my purpose for him on this planet we call Earth. I have recently graduated from Eastern Washington with my degree in Recreation Management and Leisure services. Even though I walked and I was handed an empty red folder, it still feels good that my journey at Eastern is over and the only task left to do is to complete this internship that I am currently half way through with.
My internship has been an interesting experience so far. I have have been working there gaining experience with customer service and retail at the Activities shop at Sun Mountain Lodge Resort. I answer phones, give proper information that customers need, rent mountain bikes out to people also tennis raquets, volley balls, and items for the game room. I have been memorizing information on horseback riding programs that the resort offers to customers and learning how to market them correctly. I have yet to learn about the fly fishing aspect of the job and I hope with the five weeks left at the resort. Even though this is very different for me my experience hear has been a great one. I am learning how to become a better and more marketable recreation professional. It has been difficult gaining experience now because of all the wildfires that are happening in the area where my internship is held at.
This summer for me so far has been a very emotional for me indeed. I believe that God puts me in every situation for a purpose and whether I enjoy those situations or not, it is only going to grow me closer to God because these situations I can use to lead others to Christ. My girlfriend that I have dated for almost two months has decided not to date me anymore and although confused and a little angry I have decided to support her decision no matter what because I know that her being single now is going to benefit her spiritually and prepare her for whatever God has in store for her whether she finds the man she derserves or not. Even though me and her are not together anymore I am always going to remember that relationship because the woman I was dating was an amazing person to be around and I will always be her friend no matter what.
Another reason for this emotional summer is the wildfire and hearing about how many people's houses burned down, or businesses. My thoughts and prayers still go to those who are effected by this fire and I hope to help out when I return in anyway that I can. My good buddy CJ who passed away and now is in heaven is now was one of my team members for the Mexico mission trip. Hearing the news of his passing and how it happened, my heart just broke and I mourned for CJ because even though I didn't know him very well, he still meant a lot to me as a brother in christ. I had the pleasure of learning about his heart for God and wanting to serve God in South America. He also was into worship just like me. I will have to jamm with him in heaven. My prayers go out to his mom and his 7 siblings.
So far this summer has been an interesting and meaningful ride. I am happy about everything that is going on and the decisions I choose to make because no matter what choices I make, overall I choose to love my God and my king. I have a heart for worship and am passionate about my profession and I pray and hope that God can use both to further his purpose for my life. My plan is to find a good job hopefully in Washington State to pay off debt that I owe and to save up enough money to take work off to study worship ministry either at the Hillsong School in Australia or a school close by.
I pray that you continue to read about what's going on in my life and how God is impacting me through it all and that next blog I will have a job set up. I ask that you not only pray for me that God's plan for me after this internship would be clear but that you would also pray for CJ's family and the familys that are affected by the wildfire in eastern Washington.
Thanks for reading, feel free to comment and message me, I'll see you next month and God Bless
