You know why? well its because the day of the week that I don’t stress out about. I had only one class in the morning, and the rest of the day I have to myself.
Today started off on a positive note, and I felt really moved by my devotions. Since its friday, I had an ample amount of time to medidate on the Word. God has been telling me so many things through Ecclesiastes. That book has been perfect for me during this time. It talks about how life is unfair but that you should keep on persevering, and understand that you’re not trying to please others, but God.
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for there is no activity or planning or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol where you are going.I again saw under the sun that hte race is not to the switf and the battle is not to the warriors, and neither is bread to the wise nor wealth to the discerning nor favor to men of ability; for time and chance overtake them all.” Ecclesiastes 9:10-11
God loves to answers prayers because during my mediatiion time, my roommate’s radio in the other room went off. He has his radio tuned in between stations(so a lot of static), and has it turned up really loud. So you can hear it all the down the hall into my room, and it usually takes him 20 minutes to get up and turn it off. Usually it doesn’t matter because i’m doing homework with music on, but I wanted it to be all quiet so i asked God to turn off the radio. And voila, my roommate turned it off within a 3 seconds after i finish my prayer.
Finally, I gave myself some spiritual goals to achieve. I sometimes get selfish, but I want to get to the point where if any brother, sister of mine is crying and in pain, that I too will fill their pain also. I’m not sure how that will work, so I’ll pray that God gives me great insight and wisdom.
Btw, did you know that I don’t remember anything from 3rd grade sunday school except for two things. One was how i did a magic card trick, and two- it was King Solomen asking God for wisdom. Because of that teaching from my sunday school teacher back then, I have always prayed that God would give me wisdom each day. That is always stuck in my prayers. Thinking about it, I think that was why i really liked teaching 3rd graders. It was because I know that what I said to them was important and that I would make an impact on their lives. I just want to thank all my sunday school teachers for taking time out of their lives to teach me God’s Word.
Today was a happy blog day, because King Sol told me to take contentment in each day.
