So college is going great. There are amazing professors, the student body as a whole seems driven to serve the Lord. I'm learning alot, & also meeting some really great friends. So why am I frustrated? It's simple: I am a silly human. Lol!
Ok, so it is a little bit more complicated than that, but I'm not going to go into detail. God is definitely challenging me in some specific areas of my life. Extremely specific areas, & I didn't really recognize the significance of the way He is challenging me, until I started thinking about it.
Psalm 37:4 says: Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.
My desire is for God to change me to be more like Him. I compare myself to others. There are areas of pride, doubt, fear. I see myself as 'junk' sometimes. I'm sure you all have been there. But God is 'chiseling' away all of these un-Christlike characteristics. Let me tell you though, it has been downrite painful at times. There have been days where I just want to throw in the towel & stop trying to 'Grow in Grace.' That is my pride & my flesh, fighting against the Holy Spirit. But I am excited to see what God is making me into, & what He is preparing me for. The Lord disciplines those that He loves. I found this video & I thought it was such a great example of our inner-struggle against God's discipline.
Love you all!!
