I had dgroup last night after work and one of the sweet ladies in my group, Jessica, made us chicken stew and we met at Syme on State’s campus. We had a great time of fellowshipping together and praying for each other. On a side note, when I got home from work I found this delicious snack (dark chocolate kettle corn) and it just may be one of my new favorites!
I had such a bad headache today, but other than that, work was good…so many kids today! haha total craziness! After work, Ashley went with me to run some errands (which took way longer than expected because returning things to Walmart without a tag is absolutely absurd!!!!!).
I have been thinking about how close I am to being done with school. I have a little over a month left of class till I graduate and I have no idea where this past year has gone, so I am sure the rest of it will fly by. I am thinking about how I will use the rest of this time with school for the Lord. The Lord has placed me at Wake Tech for a reason and I am praying that I would finish out my time there in a way that honors Him. I pray that there are opportunities to further His Kingdom and that I would be bold in my faith. Along with the quickly coming end to my college career, my one year “workaversary” is coming up in the next few weeks. I should be having an evaluation coming up and I am praying that goes well. As far as I can tell, all of my co-workers know I am a believer and what I live for and I want my faith to be clear to everyone I encounter at work. I am praying that my life would reflect Christ and my faith would be obvious to my co-workers, children, and parents. I want my actions and words at work to be marked by Godliness, with truth, grace, and love.
In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:23-24; 31
