Another knee down

Last week at our soccer game, one of the Campus Edge folks was carried off the field. Her knee is seriously dinged up, and she’s out of commission for a while: hobbling, but definitely no soccer.

This is not the first knee this semester. On top of that, there has been a car accident, surgeries, wisdom teeth being removed, the death of a grandfather and crazy amounts of paperwork for my work visa. That’s a lot, especially if you realize that this is on top of Lansing’s crazy winter weather this year (school is cancelled almost once a week), along with the mental stress of grad school and its often crazy schedule and deadlines.

I’m not one to talk a lot about spiritual warfare. It is not that I don’t believe it exists; it is more that I find it hard to recognize. At the same time, it seems disconcerting that, since I got here, so many of the Campus Edge folk have faced significant extra challenges. It makes me thankful that I am here now, that God made me so impatient to see the ministry here that I couldn’t wait for things to be more ready. More so, though, it reminds me of how much I/we need to pray. So much is happening behind the scenes and in people’s lives (both within Campus Edge and around us) that we do not know about; so much can go wrong. How can we not pray?
