This weekend I officially got certified in scuba diving! Craziest thing of my life! We started on Saturday by practising in the pool that we have here. We practised skills, and really just how to breath underwater! Just being in the pool freaked me out and honestly I thought of quitting because I was scared of panicking and being underwater and not being to come up to the surface…. But I stuck it out! And I’m so thankful that I did because we actually went into the ocean and practised! Our last dive we got down to 60 feet and it was one of the most relaxing and coolest things I have ever done! At one point we were swimming with 3 nurse sharks. I loved it! I just want to be out there all the time now!
As much as I’ve been doing a lot of cool adventurous things and seen a ton of amazing sunrises as I do my workday every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning which means I get up at 5:30 a.m. and clear the shore of seagrass from the night before, I absolutely love it and because I get up so early I get to see all the amazing sunrises over the ocean! I have been spending a lot of time in class learning about God and growing in my relationship with Him!
Last week our speaker Jill Bills spoke about intercession and hearing Gods voice. Intercession basically means praying on behalf of others. We spent time learning different ways to do that, as well as learning how to hear Gods voice. Before going into it I thought I had never heard God’s voice before, my idea of it was that it was going to be this booming loud mans voice that I heard and I would know that it was for sure Him.. But I have learnt that’s not how it goes!
Jill taught us that God can speak to you in many different ways and it can even be disguised as your own voice. So that little voice you hear in your head could be God… Just saying! Journaling has always been big for me, and sometimes God will use that to speak to us. I don’t exactly know how I can describe it to make it make sense but really when I was trying to hear God through journaling I would just write and I wouldn’t even know what I was writing, I believe it was God speaking to me, it was super cool!
