Yay for midnight worship practice. :) @jhsu91 (at FEC Cerritos)
Wow wow. Loved the cinematography and the story.
Baffled. So amazed as to how much technology has advanced. Hope to buy it when it comes out.
Can every day be like this? Where my heart and my mind are in sync with what God is calling me to do? That I step out of the boat of material and superficial security and walk out into the water to where Jesus is? That I take steps towards Jesus and strive to know Him fully? That even when my heart is troubled and my mind is weary, I will stand firm and give myself to the Lord and ask for His strength? That I be faithful to His calling? That I recognize the opportune time He has set out for me and respond accordingly? That I am shrewd about what is good and innocent about what is evil? That I am able to hang around godly, christ-centered people? That my goal is to be like Jesus… that is my goal.
And to trust, to just trust, that faith in Him is what will sustain me forever. That is my prayer. That this faith is a faith that will move me into godly action, knowing that I have the greatest security that is.
Back; Yay for rain. A good time to relax a bit before school and think about stuff while listening to music. @samuelock ‘s music = good for rainy days. :)
What have I learned recently? That I am bankrupt without God. Taking a Philosophy class isn’t easy, but it definitely is rewarding in that it allows me to assess opposing world views towards Christianity. A lot of prayer and strength is needed to not fall into doubting God and the sacrifice of Christ.
Speaking of which, Son of God is coming out on Friday. :) Excited to watch it in about a week or so. Although, I need somebody to watch it with… A good chance to introduce some of my friends to the faith. :)
In other news, I’ve also earned that social media is very distracting for work- if not used for work. Haha, I’ll be sure to limit myself on the computer more frequently now.
I’ve been really busy. School is very busy. And it seems to me that either I will sink, or I will swim for the A mark. Although the grade shouldn’t be the only end goal, it is still important for the long run. But, school is nice I guess. A bit lonely, but I do still have friends (both within the university and outside) so I’m not worried. I just have to have my priorities straight.
On a more serious matter, I’ve been recognizing that I have frequent intrusive thoughts. And when I mean intrusive, I mean very unwanted. They’re mostly memories from my past that are like snippets of what happened, and they emerge frequently because they’re strong enough to associate with things from my daily life; even typing on here produced some unwanted memories… I guess a lot of praying and reading of the Word can drive this away, but maybe I should talk to someone face-to-face about it as well.
That’s basically an update for the last 40 days: busyness of school, seeking of the Lord, intrusive thoughts… Yup those three.
I guess one thing I can add is that I’ve seen myself placing more value in the friendships I currently have. And in a way I guess that reduces the amount of new friends I can make, but I have friends that I can trust. and I’d like them to do the same. That’s probably all I want in the long run- it opens a bunch of opportunities for everything else.
But yeah, that’s it for now. Usually I rarely post anything now and only come on to scroll the posts from time to time. The world needs healing.
How have your days been lately?
Acting on a decision I thought of a few days ago. I’m tired of depriving myself from Truth because of my own distractions. Prayfully hoping to be a much more godly person after this fast from Instagram and Tumblr. Not Facebook because it’s a big communicator for school and such. But I’m limiting myself. See you all later if you look at my stuff that is. If you’re willing to pray for me, please pray that I can keep this up for the 40 days and just make God my priority over all other things in these next 40 days and beyond. Thanks so much. じゃまった。#uninstalling #prioritychange
