How could I expect to walk without You
When every move that Jesus made was in surrender
Korean teenagers are by far the unhappiest in the rich world. This is the result of society’s relentless focus on education—or rather, exam results.
At the dinner, I teared up for many reasons. But what stood out to me the most was God’s faithfulness. I reflected back my past four years and saw God’s faithfulness. How He has persistently worked to get me to where I am today. Then I looked around. And I also saw the beautiful work of God in my friends. Praise the Lord.
my. senioritis. is. so. bad.
but as i sit here and procrastinate, i can’t help but smile at how good God is. i’m so, so thankful for these past four years, and my heart especially melts as i think about the community of sisters He has blessed me with :)
in high school, i only had two other girls in my grade at church, and the rest were boys. i remember how i was kinda jealous because the boys were so close…a little too close -______-…whereas the girls were not as tightly knit. ahaha and i would try to get in on the bromance because they basically treated me like a bro (PHIL are you reading this?? ahaha thanks for not making fun of me that much in high school like the others did, aka tim -__-)
but now, in college, it’s the opposite. there’s an abundance of sisters in the senior class…and yeah…where are the guys? lollll jkjk.
gah but seriously, i’m so thankful to have praying friends. thank you guys for praying with me, for me, etc…thank you for praying for me on a bench in the middle of college avenue that one sunday during sophomore year when i broke down in uncontrollable tears in the middle of the street. thank you for listening as i shared my deepest hurts regarding family, and loving me in my most vulnerable state. thank you for caring, sharing, listening, watching me sob, and most of all, for showing me a glimpse of God’s perfect love.
okay end of sappy post :)
matthew 18:20 - “for where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them”
an excerpt from today’s entry from My Utmost for His Highest:
"Certainty is the mark of the commonsense life—gracious uncertainty is the mark of the spiritual life. To be certain of God means that we are uncertain in all our ways, not knowing what tomorrow may bring. This is generally expressed with a sigh of sadness, but it should be an expression of breathless expectation. We are uncertain of the next step, but we are certain of God. As soon as we abandon ourselves to God and do the task He has placed closest to us, He begins to fill our lives with surprises."
Who am I?
That the Lord of all the earth,
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I?
That the bright and morning star,
Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wandering heart.
Not because of who I am,
But because of what you’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done,
But because of who you are.
