A desire for the semester

Posted in faith, lifestyle

Life is full of trouble whether in a sky-high mountain of small annoyances or an earth-splitting canyon of crisis. When we trust our lives to the unseen but ever-present God, He will write our lives into His story and every last one of them will turn out to be a great read. With a grand ending. And not just in spite of those catastrophes. Often because of them. Don’t just wait and see. Live and see. Beth Moore

As I look ahead at this semester, I see a full one. One full of learning, growth, hard work, late nights, busyness, potential stress, prayer, nights out and nights in. One full of strong memories being made. This is my last semester of college, and it’s going to be a rich one. I see growth that may be uncomfortable, I see learning that will grow into wisdom, I see interactions that have the potential to be sincere relationships.

For me it will be about staying in a direction toward God, in an effort to get more of God, in whatever kind of moment or day it is. Living out my faith, working out my salvation, giving God the space to work, shining as a light,  and holding fast to His Word (Philippians 2:12-16). I live from experience to experience, so the question I now am challenged to ask myself is this: Who is Lord of this minute, of this hour, of this day?  As He writes the story that He had planted in His heart since before I was born.
