Capernwray Spring Break Staff Testimonies

          I was on domestics for the spring break and I would say the main thing the Lord taught me was that even in the repetitive, mundane I need to be resting in His strength, life, joy and love or all that's seen is my flesh and He is not glorified.

Even the simple everyday should be miraculous and joyful because I have access to His divine nature and power (2 Peter 1:2-4) and it is Him doing His work through us if we are walking in availability and obedience to Him. That is truly the purpose of our lives, to glorify God and be transformed into His image.

         I have to admit I was a little discontent with my position here for the break once I found out where some of my friends were going but then, through prayer and God's grace, my heart was softened towards the idea of staying here on staff for the 2 1/2 weeks.


I met lots of new people (believer & non-believers) and was given the opportunity to learn a few new skills around the property. Before I started, someone explained to me that the domestic staff is on the 'front-line', the 'face of Capernwray!'.


Anyone who comes here to be served by us is going to see our actions and our attitudes and notice what we say so they would also see Christ through the decisions we make if we let them. The Lord did give me trials but I remembered and discussed James 1: 2-3 with my team: "Consider it pure joy my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance".


I can see what God has taught me through staying here & the blessings that I've received from obeying what I know He wanted me to do! I may not have seen God's plan for me right away, but His plans are always good. I see that now. As we studied the Psalms during devotions, I read Psalm 2:8, "Ask of Me & I will surely give the nations as your inheritance , and the very ends of the earth as your possession." I just needed to ask the Lord; consult Him regarding all my thoughts & discontentment; He knew where I should be. How blessed are those who take refuge in Him!
