I choose to be joyful in You, in everything that happens, in everything You have planned. You perfectly crafted today, and there will be no other day or time I can live today. So Lord, in all I do I pray that You’d help me to give my all to You; to love You with all my heart, with all my mind, with all my soul, and all my strength by walking in obedience and faithfulness to You, in the little and big things. Lord I pray that every thought, every action, every single word spoken would be intentional and an act of surrender to You. Ah, I may fall down a few times, but Lord thank You that You are there to pick me up and walk me through the day. Thank You that I am never alone! hehe. Father, thank You so much for the day ahead, good things and bad, for all things work together for good (Romans 8:28). All glory to You and You alone C:
like my small group leader’s sister has posted on her wall, “Jesus died for you. STUDY!!!!!!!!!” HAHA truth. oh Lord help me be faithful! but also thank You so much for the support You place around me.
The strongest testimony to Jesus Christ in your academics is to pursue excellence and integrity, to see that God has given you the ability and privilege to learn, and to pursue these things in quiet humility. More than that, he has called you to be a living sacrifice (Rom 12:1) and to love him with your all your heart, mind, and soul. (Matt 22:37) I wish I knew this earlier in life. I am only learning it now as a Senior in undergrad. I have much to repent of, LORD!
“ 3 Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom. 4 At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. 5 Finally these men said, “We will never find any basis for charges against this man Daniel unless it has something to do with the law of his God.” Daniel 6:3-5
AH, Father i’m so sorry T__________T i feel like You just slapped me in the face LOL ohman but in a good loving way of course hehe (hebrews 12:6-11). i keep trying and i keep failing, and to be honest it’s pretty hard. and its discouraging when i keep falling. but please help me to stay faithful and obedient to You, even with the little things-or maybe not so little things-including studying! hehehe that i’d want to do these things out of love and reverence towards You. ah, thank You! most def needed theeees.
I love the Lord, because he has heard
my voice and my pleas for mercy.
Because he inclined his ear to me,
therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
It’s kinda sad having a huge break and going to class when everyone else is ending. But then again, I really enjoy it. All the hellos and hugs and interactions are like internal pep talks to myself, being translated into “They’ve done it, now so can you! YEAH, let’s do this!” Indeed, many times the blessings are in the little things C: Ah, going to class is going pretty well so far this quarter heh.
I still get all choked up every time my parents tell me that the love me AH :’ )
and in You there is peace and rest. Ah, thank You.
“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our widsdom, but he trembles when we pray.”
