Another Day To Be Praised

I have had 2 great days in a row and it was all because of Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God.

People often say that God will grant us happiness when we walk with him and that he will satisfy, fulfill, and reward us for a walk with him. I remembered praying about wanting to experience the journey with Him, and the past two days has been amazing, and I cannot wait for more of his plans. I have been praying to him about wanting to love people just as he would want me to love them. I also asked him for direction and guidance of how to love his people, his creation.

I have also been praying to him about my pridefulness and because I got a lot of those going on and it is causing me to be unable to connect with people and to view them just as broken as I am. I want God to show me how to love people, to be kind and gentle. I want to view people according to how God would want me to see them.

I also been praying for my action to reflect Him, so that when people see me, they can ask me why I am this or that way, then I can point and credit God and to tell them that it is because of Him I am this way and that without him I am super broken and unstable in all of my ways.

I want to be God’s good representation, to be the little light house on the hill for the broken, the lost to see, and once they arrive, I will welcome them and tell them about the one who built this house, the one who furnished the floor and ceiling. That this light house was a wreak, but because of God, this light house is under going a lifetime improvement and is waiting until the day that the builder return to proclaim his great name!

How uncoincidental is God’s work. I’ve been praying to him about wanting to love people according to Him. I am on a plan (devotional) on my Bible App about Love Like Jesus. And just a couple of minutes ago as I was opening my Instagram and the feature image popped up about “Love one another,” just according to my prayer to Christ. I am in awe and amaze of God’s work and timing. Thank you, Jesus.

Delicious Lunch

Another praises adding to this is what a delicious lunch I had today! I warmed up my leftover burrito bowl I bought yesterday from the Market at Stangel/Murdough student residential hall. I do not have leftover because I finish all my food most of time time, unless I am in a hurry or the food was too much. The reason for my leftover was the ladder. In addition to my leftover burrito bowl, I decided to make scrabble eggs to go with it, which tasted great. I found out about adding milk (I use almond milk) to my eggs made them soft and fluffy just as how I liked them. I remebered thinking how this lunch tasted great, was more delicious and special, which I thanked him more.

I also had a great time listening to lectures in my sociology and genetics class. At the end of my sociology lecture, I decided to tell Dr. Koch how entertaining his lecture was today (as the talk made me smile and I had great time listening to his stories), which I also thanked God more.

 

Oh Man!

Oh Man! What a day I had. I woke up at 10 am by the alarm clock alerted me to go to sociology class at 11 am, so I somewhat quickly got dressed, ate a banana, checked my email, hopped on a bike, and peddled to class hurridly. I made it just in time, so I sat waiting for my sociology professor to start lecture. Meanwhile, I simply grab my iPhone, remembering wanting to open Instagram, but decided not to, because it seems too much like what everybody was doing mostly, so I decided to do the thing that seems better.  I opened my Bible app and began the plan of the day about being better equipped to spread God’s love.

The reason, I titled this “Oh Man!”, which does not mean much, except “oh man!” guessed what’s happened today to perhaps hook your attention and it was the first thing that popped to mind when I decided write.

How do I begin this. I have to say that my sociology class, taught by my professor, is thought provoking. He mentioned many topics that is making me ponder from time to time, which I still do now.

A little background about my sociology professor, who is not just a professor, but also a minister, co-chair of some department, and a person who couples asked to marry them. My professor is a sarcastic guy and sort of LIKE himself, in my opinion. When he teaches the class, in some instances, it almost seems as if he is pondering to himself. I like his lecture a lot, but there has been time I questioned him as a person. He mentioned something about doing thing because of credential, hey! he is honest about that part, which made me think, well okay, maybe being a minister part is also because of credential and maybe his relationship with Jesus may not be a part of why he is in the field.

I enjoy his lecture and many of his point of view, but it made me think that not all speaker who are representing church or Christianity are preaching from the love of Christ? I am sure there are people who do so out of love for Jesus, but there may be people who also don’t.

Since the day that I realized I needed Jesus and I am still needing him right now as I am typing. That without him, I would be anxious, restless, care about the people, about the world, be full of myself, and wouldn’t be happy. If given the opportunity, I would share God loves for me and how he is transforming and helping me by gifting the Holy Spirit to guide me on a moment to moment basis.

If anyone came upon my blog and is going through a hard time, I wanted to tell them about Jesus and how he is rescuing me. I wanted to share his love for me to you. I realized that on my own, I am empty, but through him I’m constantly wanting more and more of him.

Again, Jesus is the key to why we are not happy with ourself and who we are.

I wanted to end this tonight. Thanks for reading along and making sure to comment and don’t be shy to comment on my blog.
