TAC - Challenge Course
Well, this is it. The last week of my internship with the Challenge Course here at Athletes In Action is coming to an end. It’s all a little surreal. I feel like my first day in the office was yesterday. I wish I had more days to spend out on the course, more lives to watch Christ change on those ropes.
I’ve grown so much in my walk with Christ this summer. God gave me an opportunity to take a leap of faith and trust in Him, by coming to a place I knew very little about on my own. As always, He has provided for me the whole way. I have made lifelong friends, made memories to last a lifetime, and most importantly, have learned so much about God’s plan for me and the path He wants me to be on.
Making the decision to come here was one of the scariest things I have ever done. It’s not surprising, because God seldom puts us on the easy path. However, making the decision to come here was also one of the most worthwhile things I have ever done, because our God is always fruitful, and provides us with the desires of our heart if we delight in Him. It’s just like the Challenge Course, really. Getting up there and moving from element to element is terrifying, but when we step out in faith, the lessons we learn and obstacles we overcome are always worth it.
My desire is that I would continue to set aside my desires and follow God’s will. I pray I will use the faith that God has provided me with and decide to take action, only walk on the path that will draw me closer to Him, and above all, make decisions that will bring Him glory. I am so thankful for the opportunity that I have had this summer. Athletes In Action is a truly Christ-centered ministry that the Lord uses to change lives and bring people to Him, and I hope to labor more for Christ with the organization in the future.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.”
