Recently, I have been experiencing some spiritual warfare in my discipleship relationships. I have a couple guys in my life that I have been discipling and it has been very rough. There seems to be very little movement in their lives and I have begun to feel very discouraged in this area. Many of you who know me, know that I am very passionate about Discipleship and it is most of the reason that I moved over here. I have a huge heart for seeing young guys grab on to the truths of God and to move full into Christ in their lives. Because of this, it is very painful for me right now to be experiencing my guys struggling in their lives and walks with God.
Although this has been hard I have seen Gods faithfulness in it. I am encouraged at the ways I see God working despite me. It is often a problem of mine, that I try to take the burden of other peoples growth on my own, rather than giving it to God. The upside to what I am writing is that I am beginning to see some movement in the lives of the guys. God is doing some pretty neat things. I am going away for two weeks to Poland, Ukraine, and Czech with the summer interns and I am worried how these guys will do without me. I am continuing to remind myself that God is in control and is working in their hearts. Please pray for them, but also pray for me that I will not listen to Satans lies or my own doubt in this process, but that I will completely lean on Christ and die to myself daily. I have not mentioned the names of these boys to keep the information confidential.
