You Never Let Go...

This was one of the titles of the songs we sang at BCM (Baptist Campus Ministries) tonight. We started off the night just like we normally do on Monday nights, but after we sang and talked for a few minutes, our leaders told us we would be doing things a little differently tonight.

We walked to one of the classroom buildings on campus, where there were 6 stations set up throughout the whole building. At each station, was a bible verse, along with a devotional and a few prayer suggestions. We were asked to take our time to thoroughly read the verses and the suggestions written below, then to take a few moments to pray to God for whatever was on our mind. This was repeated at each station.

I was just in awe the whole time at those that had attended tonight. When I stopped to think about that this week is Homecoming Week, as well as the week before mid-terms, each student's homework/stress load has got to be pretty heavy because of everything going on. I know that I'm being tugged in a million different directions with school, homework, family,'s just so hard to balance everything. Yet through it all, these young adults put aside everything for the night just to be together and to pray to God. I just feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful group of people on this campus. I pray for everyone who attended tonight, and even those that didn't, that God be with them this week as they get through the stresses of daily life. Also that each day, their "stress slate" be wiped clean so that they may see each day as a blessing from God.

That's one reason why I love the picture I chose to represent this post. God's hands are over all of us and he'll never let go, no matter how hard times may seem...
