Lexie Jones (Class of 2018)

 

Because of my experience in VCLA, for the first time in my life, I understood what it’s like to just experience the presence of God. My spiritual life has been transformed by just sitting and spending time in relationship with my father. I now can identify His presence, His voice, and His love.

Through many hills and valleys, God has patiently walked with me to give my heart the faith to believe even when I don’t understand. I know God is good because he has shown His love to me repeatedly. My circumstances and even the state of this world don’t define my God. As I grow deeper with God I choose to believe that no matter how I see a situation, whether I see God moving or if I can’t understand how He will use the pain; I walk in faith knowing that He is always good because His ways are higher.
