Nick's Week 11 Review

Is the first semester actually over?! Well that was fast. It's weird to think that before I know it I will be done with Link Year and on to college. I wouldn't want to spend that time anywhere else. 
So this week in my elective class, Tactics, Seth made an analogy about fields off of Galatians 6:8 "Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life." We went on to say that if you plow the soil the better the soil will be; the better the soil the better the reaping. As Christians we are all fields. Some of us have more rocks than others. Some of us have less fertile soil than others, often due to starting in a rather poor position. But we can all be plowed until our soil is fertile. The trick is knowing when to quit plowing and start sowing. At Link Year we are being plowed and tilled so that we may produce good crops. But at some point we need to work with the soil we currently have and start planting seeds such as disciples, bible studies, etc. 
Other highlights of the week include:
TGIF at Warrior Sports
First trip to Jimmy Johns and SugarLeaf
Run at Stockstill park during which I happened to run into Spencer.
Super chill hangout sesh on the bridge while watching shooting stars.
Jesus Was Homeless/Affordable Christmas
Link Year Christmas Party at Little Hacineda
First trip to Silver Dollar City
Shay Robbins pouring wisdom into us.

Takeaways from the week:
1. Always leave more time to do laundry than you think you need.
2. Don't go on mystery runs (and get lost) when you have limited time.
3. I can make a mean Sweet Tea.
4. There's a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it.
5. Don't over complicate prayer. God already knows what needs to be said so just cut to the chase.
