I am so thankful for now.
If I really think about it, there's no other place I'd rather be than here at Evangel, studying Psychology and Biblical Studies. I feel SO blessed to be a part of Concert Choir. I am privileged to have met many AMAZING individuals thus far, to have developed such meaningful friendships. I love Walther 2nd North. I couldn't ask for a better floor to uplift me, love me, and give me such support. My relationship with the Lord is ever deepening, as He is breaking down the walls of pride that have been in place for so long.
I am so satisfied to be right here, right now. To be writing this blog on my desk underneath my lofted bed, to be getting ready soon to be heading to church.
Too often I move ahead so quickly. My dreams take hold of my present and make me overlook the current blessings God has given me. However, it is vital that I take a moment to thank the Lord for what He is doing in me at this very moment.
I would like to pray the Prayer of St. Francis this morning.
"Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life."
