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 been hurt and sad a lot this year. Many things have come to my attention, I have been lied to and talked about by people. I'm heartbroken by the way people have treated me. Abba, forgive me because I tend to treat people the way they treat me. But I know I should show respect to all people and see them as You see them (with love). 5/17/2011
During my high school and undergraduate years, I was put in circumstances that challenged me to forgive others. I have been taken advantage of, rejected, teased, seen abuse. When I was hurt, I wanted revenge, sometimes I would isolate myself, or lie to myself about being okay. I have learned since my younger years, positive ways to handle hurt. I would first admit, the pain I was feeling. Then, I asked God to help me forgive and love the person. And lastly, I began praying for the person and my own heart. The Lord has met me while I was in pain and I am sure He will meet you in your own pain and struggles.
