Why are we always waiting for something? Waiting for exams to be over, waiting for summer, waiting for Friday. And when what you’re waiting for finally comes, we don’t even appreciate what we have been waiting for, instead we just wait for something else.
One of the amazing things about God is that He doesn’t need us to be perfect. He doesn’t have these lofty expectations or standards that we need to meet. God knows that we’re weak, that we have flaws, and that we’re imperfect, and He loves us anyway.
Jesus Christ endured the cross so that He could be with us because He delights in us.
He just wants to be in a love relationship with us.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. - Hebrews 12:2
So, class registration is tomorrow and prayers for it to go smoothly would reallyyyy be appreciated. I’m stressing out a bit too much. :) Please pray that God would open and close the “doors” for classes and that I will be able to get the classes that I need, especially now that I’m starting to plan out my courses for my major!
Thank you :)
Just did nails, chatted, and relaxed w/ friends for two hours :P
Now I just have to finish that research paper and get it in in an hour…
You are strong in Christ!
Haha, Christ renews my strength! :)
Thanks for the encouragement. Hope you’ve been doing well! ^_^
12 “Even now,” declares the Lord,
“return to me with all your heart,
with fasting and weeping and mourning.”
13 Rend your heart
and not your garments.
Return to the Lord your God,
for he is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love,
and he relents from sending calamity.
14 Who knows? He may turn and relent
and leave behind a blessing—
grain offerings and drink offerings
for the Lord your God.
- Joel 2:12-14
19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. 25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. - Hebrews 10:19-25.
