from today’s devotional:
Prayer: Source of strength, open our hearts to sense people’s emptiness and hunger, and open our mouths to share your good news. Amen.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:We are God’s messengers to people who feel empty and alone.
my devotionals always speak to me–different ways for different days. today, i was really feeling my devotional because i know what it’s like to not really WANT to share the good news of Christ to others. it’s not always cool, in college, to live your life sold out for Christ. despite that, i cannot deny that god is everything to me. i am so incredibly blessed and god has done so much for me–opened up opportunities, placed people in my life…god is so good! there’s a song that i love (of course i don’t know the name or the artist) that describes it: “not enough time to tell you how He saved my soul. not enough time to tell you how He made me whole. not enough time to tell you how He set me free- He’s been so good to me. God is so good, i just can’t tell it all.” that’s truly how i feel…despite all the things i’ve been through, i STILL have joy. and guess what…this JOY that i have- the world didn’t give it and the world can’t take it away. so to tie all this in to my devotionals, i suppose that i need to remember that (as kb says) christians are evidence of christ’s existence…which means that i must be vocal and vigilant about the good news of christ. *blessings*
on another note…i’m really feeling john legend:
“…i know i misbehaved…and we’ve both still got room left to grow. and though love sometimes hurts, i still put you first…we’re just ordinary people. we don’t know which way to go. cause we’re ordinary people. maybe we should take it slow…take it slow…” ~ordinary people
“…times is hard and things are a changin’. i pray to God that we can remain the same. all i’m tryin’ to say is our love don’t have to change…” ~it don’t have to change
“…And in the end I know that we’ll find, a love so beautiful and divine. and we’ll be lovers for a lifetime, and I’ll stay with you…” ~stay with you
i love the whole album…but those songs are really close to me…
at any rate…i have my interview with UNC school of education today and i’m really excited. i know that god is ultimately in control of everything that takes place…so i’ma go in and just handle my business the best that i can. i’m trying not to be nervous…but this is a life-altering type of thing. in the end, GOD is in control…*i have peace*
so that’s all…i’m excited…life is goooooooooood…
