No matter how you get there or where you end up, human beings have this miraculous gift to make that place home. — Creed. The Office.
Devo time with the beau. Talking about Job (:
The way my sophomore year of college started is a whole lot different than how it ended, and thankfully so. I had no clarity of what I’d be doing in my future, what I would really be doing in ministry, and who I would even be doing it with. I was also starting the year burnt out from working all summer.
Now I know I will be working in Christian counseling in the church mainly, as well as family and marriage counseling. Also to be in the administration of the church and help it function efficiently. And I would be doing it with my man of God, Thomas.
I thank God for stretching me to the point of pain, or else i would still be stagnant and too comfortable to change.
Unfortunately but understandably, my growth has cost me change in closeness of certain friendships or even a cut off from certain people. I know God puts people in my life and takes people out, or distances them for many reasons. In this He has definitely protected me from great destruction in my life.
I can not stress enough how important it is to have your inner circle be filled with people who help sharpen you and encourage you as well as keep you accountable.
With all this said, I am starting this summer on a high note. My energy, my motivation comes solely from God and I will press on and become stronger and trust in God for any and all opportunities that come my way!
I could expand on this even more, but I have 3 papers due before Wed. I just had to get this out.
There are just so many people/instances that I’ve witnessed where they make their lives so hard on themselves because of the things they get themselves into.
The most important thing I’ve learned this past semester is that God will bless you if you’re faithful to Him; glorifying His name.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who DILIGENTLY seek Him.” Hebrews 11:16
Cheating, lying, any secrecy will lead to a hard, dark life. Stay in the light.
P.S. If you feel bad or as if you have to hide something you are doing, then it’s probably best if you stop. You already know.
“All things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.” Ephesians 5:13
How exhausting is it to be paranoid of “someone finding out”. Live obedient, honestly truthful, holy, loving lives to the best of our ability. That is then when we can bring the utmost glory unto God.
“Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8
Fortunately for you, it’s not over yet. You can still turn your life around and live a healthier, happier, free-er life.
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” Ephesians 1:7
I got 5 papers and 1 project to do in 4 days….Lord help me.
Two completely different feelings.
