Seeking God – Julia Johnson

“From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history…God did this so that they would seek Him and reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from any of us.” Acts 17:26-27

When I reflect on my time at UJ, these verses come to mind. Before coming to college, I didn’t know where I wanted to go, what I wanted to do, or how I wanted to live my life, but my time here at University of Jamestown has given me such clarity and joy.

God had a plan for me to come to Jamestown, so that I would “seek Him and reach out for Him and find Him.” I’ll briefly share my story.

My name is Julia Johnson, and I am a senior nursing major at University of Jamestown. I also compete in track and field. My first semester at UJ, I had a lot of questions about who I should be, what I should major in, and who God is. Through a great group of friends, late-night talks, and helpful conversations

After my first semester, I switched my major to nursing and got involved with Campus Crusade for Christ.

I can’t thank God, my family, my friends, and UJ enough for the guidance and love I’ve received here. It truly is a place like nowhere else. Walking across campus, I know most every student. My professors know me by name and care to know about what is going on in my life.

Through this amazing small campus in North Dakota, God changed my life and blessed me with the opportunity to know and love Him.
