New Season

It is amazing how fast time flies. A new semester is about to begin and i am so excited to see what God will teach me, how he will use me, and how i will learn more about him. Already i recognize the need for me to trust in him in all things and to go to him for strength. God is always using us; he is always working though us and in us.

Lord, help me to see you working in me and around me today and always.

It is hard to know what to say, do, or think when the people we love leave us. I can't fathom the pain that is surrounding my aunt. To lose someone you have loved for so long and to have been with for so long seems extremely awful and confusing. How does she live normally when he was part of her daily life. I know you have plan in all things, please help her to know that you have a plan in all of this, that you are a God of love, of peace, and of comfort. Help her to know when she feels alone that your arms are wrapped around her.

He is finally with out pain and home forever with you Lord. How joyful we are with this knowledge, but also how sad we are that he is not with us. Help us to trust in you always.

Forever - Hillsong
I'll Worship at Your Throne
Whisper my own love song
With all my heart I'll sing
For You my Dad and King
I'll live for all my days
To Put a smile on Your face
And when we finally meet
It'll be for eternity

And Oh how wide You open up Your arms
When I need Your love
And how far You would come
If ever I was lost
And You said that all You feel for me
Is undying love
That You showed me through the cross

I'll worship You my God
I'll worship You my God
I love You
I love You
Forever I will sing
Forever I will be with You
Be with You

Vision and Courage

Earlier today i went to a lecture where a victim of the Khmer Rouge talked about reconciliation, peace, and justice. I read tonight in my devotional about the injustices of South African and their past history. What the devotion recognized is one,that the injustices of our modern world are sadly reminiscent of the old testament, and two, that our world still is rife with injustice.

With that the author challenges us with these words" May God give us vision to see and courage to act"
