The 365 Project - Day 56/57
I'm sorry I haven't wrote on the blog in 2 days, but as you can see from the pictures, I had a really good reason. This is a 2 part photo arc, showing the changes that I made in my room to make it look more inviting. I had the thought in my head of putting a couch in, but I never actually thought I would have the resources to do it. Southern Seminary has a thrift store that lets students have 4 items for free. I took the couch, a jewelry box that was made in Japan (unfortunately it's broken), some movies (old school VHS) and 2 John Grisham books...I was very excited at the finds...
I admit I have been falling behind with a number of things in my life, but that is because of the stress that I have been under. So here, is what I have been reading.
Today I read 2nd Corinthians 1+2, and after reading this, I felt touched. There are often times in life where we cannot truly understand the nature of people, and the nature of sin. But God in all his wisdom, knows how we must deal with such situations, and had Christ act as our mediator...
Read this passage; 2 Cor. 2:5-11
If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you, to some extent—not to put it too severely. The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient for him. Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him. The reason I wrote you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything. If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.
I will be keeping busy for a long time on Thursday as I have many things that must be accomplished. Especially studying for a midterm that I have no idea what to study for...I will be doing work, studying, and helping to serve.
I chose to volunteer for an effort to see supplies brought to Haiti for those that were affected by the earthquake. It is inspiring. I also have a ton of laundry to get done.
So, I'm going to just do whatever I can today. In everything, I will say, TO GOD BE THE GLORY...
GRACE AND PEACE!
