"God can not give us peace apart from Himself, because there is no such thing" —C.S.Lewis

So lately I’ve been praying with my dad in the mornings before I go to school because of his anxiety and at night before we go to sleep because he has trouble sleeping. I’ve been hugely praying for peace for him, which I think he appreciates. The fact he’s letting me pray with him is huge, and I can only praise God for that. Even more, he’s been growing more and more willing. Tonight I finished praying and he said “tell him to let the government pass the darn budget”, which is actually a pretty good thing to remember while praying.

I dunno man, the Lord is good :)

We’re cute :P

We don’t have that many pictures together. Maybe I’m just weary. I look in so many people’s facebook albums and see pictures of people in relationships they’re no longer in. Not that there’s a negative correlation at all between the amount of pictures taken and the amount of success in a relationship. That would be ludacris. 
But I’m breaking that fear today. I will take each day as it comes and rejoice in it and enjoy the people God has allowed in my life.

What I did:
 Today I woke up kind of late, but was able to leave at a decent time in order to stop and get lunch on the way to school and still be 10 minutes early to Digital Media. We went over more course information and ended class early, so my friends and I got to chat with my teacher. After that I went to Religion and we learned about how we’ll approach religion as a state-funded establishment. A lot of it had to do with staying away from bias, but also not assuming things when we don’t know that context. It’s definitely helping me to see things in a different view for sure. Afterwards, me, Nathan, JP and Neil went to Steak N Shake. Once we were done, I attempted to head to church early, then it occurred to me that it probably wasn’t unlocked, so I went and hid in the library for a little bit until band practice at church. After practice I went to get a drink and ended up in a pleasant conversation with my friend Sam about college/life and ended up missing the message entirely. After small groups I headed home and went to Meghan’s house (who lives two doors down). I helped her change her guitar strings and we ate nutella on strawberries and chips and dip, and browsed funny videos on the internet. T’was a good time.

What’s on my mind:
 I have the hiccups and they won’t leave me.

I also need to be a better steward of the time I’m given.

So a friend got a hold of my journal/prayerbook/notes and started reading through it.

My first hope was that they would read that and fall in love with God and that the things I wrote glorified Him.

Then I started to think about how I want people to view me. My first thought was “I want people to see God in me”. But that somehow didn’t resonate right with me. Then I realized: It’s whether or not they see Christ in me. 

Sure, I’d love for people to see the glory of God in me, but what’s also important is that people see the sacrifice that Christ made in us. The fruits as well as our character being like His. Which oddly, it seems I’m more reluctant towards the latter.

But my, how the Lord is a gentle and humble teacher.

Because and can’t help but fall for the first kind, attractive person who walks by, I am making a list.

I made one awhile ago because my mentor advised that it was a good idea, but I’ve lost it.

While I still day dream about the longs I’ve always longed for, God’s bringing me into this really cool place where I dream of the thing’s He’s planning and the ways He is going to use me and the passions He’s put in my heart.

I have a feeling I’m always going to have trouble deciphering whether or not I actually like someone or merely a relationship with that someone.

I’ve always wanted to be *it* for someone. But I never really wanted it to be like this.

It just hit me how much I’ve been slacking on my work o.o

Things to be done:

  • Work on essay
  • Catch up on reading
  • English homework

That’s all I can remember now.
