Will readily admit that the exchange talk spooked me.
Haha my mind was all RED ALERT RED ALERT you are not studying enough Joseph!!
Also a bit of HOW NOW WHERE YOU GONNA GO FROM HERE (Mat Kearney)
I mean hey. It’s 5 weeks to the end of exams, and I’m not just woefully unprepared, I’m leagues behind.
But as I boarded the BTC bus, I remembered.
There is no one else for me, none but Jesus. I live to bring Him praise.
I’m reminded again of what I really really desire. To have a heart that forgives, and loves, and is humble, and that delights in serving and building up others.
To be there for my friends as best as I can, and give generously of my time and energy to things that have value.
So yes, I do still want to have a delightful frolicky exchange. But that’s not going to take precedence over the things that I have set my heart on doing in service.
To my main cell, how I can be there for them and invest time into growing together.
To my jc cell, how I can best serve them as they wade into the madness that is the A Levels.
To Level Up!!!!, and how my team and I can really come together to find ways to serve the people that we’ll be inviting soon (—:
To friends, who will always matter more to me than a set of grades or a 6 month vacation (AS TEMPTING AS THAT IS).
And to God first of all. All my delight is in You God, all of my days. 1 John 4:7 – Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God 🙂
“In the moment / of my weakness
You give me grace to do Your will”
