And we all, with unveiled face,
beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same
image from one degree of glory to another.
For this comes from the Lord
who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Winter Vacation is Over...Back at College
I feel that this winter break went slow. It is my last year at my current college and I am not sure about how I feel about this being my last year. It seems went by so slow and had its ups and downs. I am thankful that I got this far because I really did not know most days how it would work out. I look forward to this semester because it almost coming to an end. I am praying that this semester want be stressful but I will be relax and accomplish all I need to get done for the Spring semester. I pray that I will grow as I internship at an agency for families, meet new friends and enjoy time with the friends I have now. I pray that I will trust God in the direction He would have for me.
Quotes from Gladys Aylward "I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done for China…I don't know who it was…It must have been a man…a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing…and God looked down…and saw Gladys Aylward…And God said - "Well, she's willing." “If God has called you to China or any other place and you are sure in your own heart, let nothing deter you….Remember, it is God who has called you and it is the same as when He called Moses or Samuel.”
"My heart is full of praise that one so insignificant, uneducated, and ordinary in every way could be used to His glory for the blessing of His people in poor persecuted China."
Abba, I have seen abuse and just thinking about it scares me. I don't want to ever be in an abusive relationship. I honestly want to be blessed with a man of God, You have for me that will not hit me. I pray to be with someone who loves me as Christ loves the church...
I fear to be in an abusive relationship. I have noticed that whenever I hear someone raise their voice at me, my heart starts beating fast and I get nervous. I find myself hiding and running from confrontation. I wish I were never around abuse because it has shaped my view of men. As I continue to seek the Lord, he is changing my view of men. I have an understanding of how men and godly men should treat women. Some days are better than others, but I am trusting God with this fear.
What has happened in your past that has shaped your world view?
