So today was it.
Today was the last worship session and the last official day of Jesus School. I now understand why everyone uses the very common word: “bittersweet”.
My heart feels like it’s being “poured out” with so many emotions — all good. I’ve met wonderful people of a different species. The Jesus kind. They showed me love when I couldn’t understand it. They showed me love when I didn’t feel I deserved it. There was laughter. SO much giving. So many tears. I was challenged. I was stretched. I was rebuked and corrected.
Chels, what did you get out of that? J-E-S-U-S. When you are surrounded by people who are diving deep into seeking and finding Jesus, the only possible result is love. He showed me His beauty through His people and through seeking Him more and more.
Having this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be called by Jesus Himself to attend such a wonderful place is beside me. Why did He choose me? I don’t know, but I found Him in a deeper way than I thought was possible and that’s enough. A time I’ll never take for granted. I had the opportunity to serve others. To serve their dreams. To partake in a harvesting field to take deeper roots in Him.
I got to KNOW Jesus more and I’ve barely scratched the surface.
I got to partake in unity.
I got to experience love and although I wish it’d never end. He has more and it’s going to be more beautiful than I could have imagined.
Thank you eternally to Michael and Jessica Koulianos for being real and raw in love with Jesus. Thank you to everyone who sacrificed to attend Jesus School and to all those who helped run it. ❤
