THOUGHTS

Here as in Heaven

Lovely night. Start of a new semester in University, really looking forward to graduating soon. Only one year left to go. Today was the first day of Chi Alpha small groups. We had a great time in communion, had snacks and got to know each other a little more. They came to the town home and enjoyed the comfort of this place, all thanks to my roommate, her candles and the vibe that she made this place have. I started off a little worried, and a little nervous but ultimately there was nothing to be worried about. My roommates were respectful and kind to them, we were able to spend time with God without any major distractions or interruptions. I was worried about their cars, because parking in the lofts is very limited but luckily no one got their cars towed.

I am very excited to be a leader this semester. I do not want to let them, or myself or God down. I have high expectations for myself, but I also desire to do my best and be a big help to the other leaders of Chi Alpha. I know I can do this, I have so many ideas but first I would like to go along for the ride some more, and have a little input and help but not really take over any projects. I think God is still equipping me because I do not feel ready to lead someone. Even though I am not equipped, God equips me, because he gives me the courage and strength to work on his behalf. Not that he needs me, but that he loves me and is trusting me with a portion. I want to be like the men in the story that invest the money they receive and actually have a harvest twice the size for when they’re master came back.

Lord may your will be done, give me the words to speak, and teach me what I need to know to be a great leader. Help me to genuinely care for the people you place in my path, to feel for them, remember them, and pray for them when they need it. Help me to be the Iron that sharpens them as you sharpen me. Teach me more so I can teach them more, and may I continue to be excited about these moments you bring before me. Lord we do this all for your glory, and for relationship with you. Because we love you and understand the dire need of the world to have a savior, we must first learn, and experience the joy and hope you have for us, so we can joyfully talk about it to others. God do not let us forget that we are doing this for your glory, to further your gospel, and your reach, and not to further our opinions, or thoughts.

Memory Lane . If only I knew what the future holds

Drafted 4 moths ago, and just writing my heart out. I felt like this often but thankfully now I can say i feel better, more in control of my life, and like God is sitting right next to me pulling me forward. I am happier than I was a few months ago, and so I am really grateful to be able to look back and see that I was so lost just a few months ago and already God has given me a hope to hold on to….

 

If only I knew what the future holds.

I wish and hope and pray  that a lot of good and fortune would come. But honestly I’m afraid.

I fear trying because I am afraid to fail. I need to remember that not trying is worse than failure. Continue reading

Romans 5:2-6

2.  Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.

3.  We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.

4.  And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.

5.  And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

6.  When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.

-Romans 5:2-6

James 1:2-4

Faith and Endurance

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. – James 1:2-4 (NLT)

Day 06: Something that excites you and fills you with joy

Many things excite me !  For instance Blogging, Learning, Reading,  Jogging, Music, Make up, Fashion, Food ..                                       Choose one? NOT Possible.

Life can be very exciting if you learn to live it.  I guess what really excites me and fills me with joy is experiencing some of everything life has to offer. 🙂

Ever had the feeling you can do so much more with your life, or you’re missing out on so many things. You may have heard this many times before but this is just a reminder; You only get 1 life  to live so live it the best you can!

” The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience “- Eleanor Roosevelt
