So I was doing practicing piano today, right? And my mom hands me the phone because it's Brandon's weekly update. So I listen to it and get all the info I need and whatnot, and I hang the phone up, and I feel all bogged down inside. I just felt gross. I don't know if I was just like "oh, I can go hang out tomorrow at the church" or "I really need to talk to my parents about New York, cuz I need to hand my deposit in in 2 weeks if I'm going, and if I don't, I'm can't go" or what. So I decided to sit down and have my quiet time because I didn't do it this morning like I was planning to because I woke up late (whoops). We'll see if this makes me feel better. God usually does make you feel better. That's one thing I like about God. (Notice, I said one thing. I like lots and lots of things about God. Maybe I'll make a list sometime.)
Acts 9:13-14-"Lord," Ananias answered, "I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem. 14And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on your name." What I love about this, is that Ananias doubted. That may seem like a weird statement, but it makes me feel good that he was doubtful. In the next verses, God assures him that Saul isn't going harm him. But it took some convincing from God before he went. I doubt waaay too often. Trusting God and having faith is SO hard for me. I'm not really sure why but it is. So that's something I'm working on.
Proverbs 16:1- To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue. I'm still trying to process what this verse means. I know I like it because I try to plan my own life and that never works out. Any thoughts from anyone on what this means???
Revelation 16:7-And I heard the alter respond: "Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments." God's judgments are true. They're just. They're what's right for us. But we don't always get that. It's hard to accept something that you don't like. But when you look back on things that you've accepted but haven't liked, you realize that it really was better that it turned out that way.
There wasn't anything that jumped out at me in Hebrews 11 today, so you should click on that link and read it yourself and tell me if there's anything that jumped out at you!
It's time to go to Urban Vision! Soooooo... yeah. Bye! (I do feel much better now!)
