Whatever happens in your life, don’t throw away any experience. Believe that The Lord can turn any situation for the best of those who love Him, because HE CAN and HE WILL!
Exactly one week ago today I was had to stop at a crossroads.
I was feeling highly insecure, like never before in my entire life. Confused, incapable and scared.
I asked for prayer from my spiritual family and for guidance from my Father.
I received both abundantly! Grace, Grace, Grace…
God spoke directly to my heart through many people and through His clear word.
Can’t write down everything here because it would take me forever, but I need to share that His words is alive and His Hand is upon those who love Him. Over you, underneath, inside, in between, surrounding you with His mercy, pursuing your heart.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand it or feel it, God’s purpose for you is marvelous and beyond your wildest dreams. However, is not about you, is not about your abilities or your strength, but about His power.
May The Lord always be glorified!
Can’t even begin to describe how eternally grateful I am for being part of this place! These past few days have been a tornado of different emotions…On one hand, I feel bad for all the time I’ve already missed and the fact that I only have two years here. For example, today we had a chance to meet with faculty from our academic department of interest, in my case, the Chair Person of the Psychology Department. Man I left that place even more excited than I was! He showed us such passion for the field and for God! I felt really jealous of those who get to take all their classes here, really, and even though I’m grateful for being halfway in my curriculum, I still wished I would’ve taken my classes in such a passionate, comprehensive, God-centered environment! But on the other hand, the fact that I come from such a different place has made me sensitive and extremely grateful for everything around me. The first day, at an orientation for transfer students, when the Dean of Resident Enrollment stood in front of us and started with prayer I almost passed out lol! Honestly,I couldn’t concentrate, because I was just SO excited and joyful to be in a university focused on training its students to live a Christ centered life, in wherever field of study. And knowing that praying before every class every day, plus services during the week, small groups, a team of spiritual life leaders, Bible classes etc, are just one small part of this GREAT adventure makes me want to explode of JOY! HAHA Most people take these things for granted around here, but given the places I’ve lived and my past, I can’t help but feeling this way… #ScandalOfGrace
for real though.
American higher education baffles me. The best universities in my country are completely free, and even the private ones are not so expensive that it’d force someone to incur in debt.
Could someone tell me how much US students pay to attend college? In Canada, colleges tend to be 3-5K a year, and universities are 5-7K.
Most schools are between 40-60K. Some (like NYU and a few others) are more.
And no. That’s not a typo.
State universities can be in the 20K-30K range before financial aid also, but yeah. Not a typo.
Love, the way God intended it to be, is real, and SO much more precious than man-fabricated stories!
Real love takes work, commitment and a humble spirit. Carrying around fantastic expectations about love will make you suffer, hurt others around you and keep you from God`s design for your life.
