So I know I haven't been posting much lately. There are two main reasons for this. One, I've been killer busy, up past midnight doing homework every night. Two, God has been using this semester to really humble me and teach me to rely on Him more. When you're surrounded by hundreds of people who are smarter and wiser than you, it's hard to feel like you have anything meaningful to say.
So that's where I am right now, right now I feel like I'm in more of a "absorbing" state of life. That said, if you want some theological or philosophical tidbits from me, you can check out my Facebook profile for my "Quote of the Week." This will be something that really struck me or has been on my mind through the past week. I did not originally say the quote, but hopefully you'll be challenged and/or encouraged by it.
One of the many, many, awesome things about The Master's College is that the school has made the decision to cancel classes for half a week just to give students a chance to serve and minister. Every fall in an event called "Outreach Week," students gather in teams to serve in local churches.
Anyhoo, if anyone still reads this blog these days, we'd appreciate prayer for safety, unity, and loving hearts in our group. Also, please pray for the gospel to go out in a truthful and powerful way, and ask that God's word would not come back vain. One of the recent speakers in chapel pointed out that we are 100% effective everytime we share the gospel, so above all pray that God's will would be done and that He would be glorified through our efforts.
So it's been a crunch week for me. I have a test, a quiz, an outline, a handout, and a six-plus page paper due right before Outreach Week. Two hundred and fifty pages had to be read, and I had to study an Awana booklet to get officially qualified at Placerita Baptist. To make the situation even more bleak, I'm going home this weekend to a family and friends that haven't seen me for a month.
What does God do? In an event nothing short of divine providence, both of my classes yesterday were canceled. Consequently, I'm sitting here writing this post instead of reading Mark Twain.
The really freaky thing? Our Dean of Students, Joe Keller, had just lectured on time management in Biblical Fundamentals about a week earlier, and he talked about this exact thing happening! There will be times, he said, where you're doing your best but still won't be able to get everything done on time. Life is looking bleak, when all of sudden, class is canceled.
That's me right there, but better yet, that's my God right there. All praise to the Sovereign Lord for His mercies, even in little issues like these!
This blog represents the musings, thoughts, and conclusions of an eccentric, conservative, redeemed, college freshman.
I'll try my best to post at least once a week (more as time and inspiration allow) by every Monday morning.
Commenting hasn't really been an issue yet, in fact, it's been pretty much nonexistant, but I will not tolerate anything obscene, stupid/off-topic, or mindless ranting (though there may be an exception or two to that last one).
