I awoke this morning and went to EPB only to find that my last lit class, ever, was canceled…
So I finished my paper at the main library and went home to shower and prepare for the rest of my day…
After going grocery shopping with Nick & Rose for the KASA/LiNK bbq tomorrow, I went home to make pizza rolls and brats.
Basically we had our own little BBQ during our small group, which was led by Pastor Tony, since Ed was drumming with KM.
For small group bible study this evening, we discussed Genesis 41.
We talked about Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams and all the trials he faced to basically eventually become Egypt’s prime minister.
We talked about how Joseph’s faith stayed in Christ no matter how low his situation got…
He get’s sold to Egypt by his own brothers and is falsely accused and put into prison…
So I can’t say I can empathize with Joseph, because it really is hard to understand. Recently human trafficking has become more prominent on the news and a girl had even been marketing her younger sister for money. Sick. Right? And I know how it feels to be falsely accused… and it sucks. But I can brush it off in a few days because in the end as long as I know the truth and God knows the trust, that other person is in trouble! BUT STILL, will never be able to understand the lowest of the low of Joseph… I can’t even imagine what sort of things were going in his head, but that he still knew that God was with him, is extraordinary.
During worship, I prayed and reflected on how amazing God was and that he has every puzzle piece of our lives together, but he’s just revealing it a little by little. And God was with Joseph, and although the world saw Joseph as a slave and prisoner, Pharaoh and God saw him as a prince. I prayed that I would have faith like Joseph and so that when or if the lowest of my life comes around, I can be prepared because of prayer and wisdom, I can fully trust God that he will take care of it all. That God will give me the comfort and the assurance that everything is taken care of.
After college group, I had an encounter and was offered an opportunity. After tonight I really can see that God has something in store for me this summer/fall/spring… And I’m so glad that he showed me a glimpse of it tonight.
I realized after tonight that I must, must, MUST, be fully wrapped in His word and should be praying RIGHT. NOW.
Prayer, prayer, prayer.
That is the answer to what my direction is. I’ll find it through prayer.
I thought I had a good outline of my summer plans and possible fall plans… but I’m seeing that there is so much more that my little mind can’t even begin to fathom. With all that I’ve gained in the past two days, who needs camp adventure??
Tonight I also had a very blessed time with my brothers and sisters at the CWRC! Played indoor soccer with some really cool Malaysians, and volleyball with my brothers and sisters in Christ J
Blessed time to lose some calories while growing together!
GOD is GOOD.
ALL the TIME.
AHHH.. so late… 3:14am… time to CHECK OUT.
