Reflections

2014 means the start of a new year, and the start of a new semester at school. Thinking back on my last year and a half in college, there is a lot I’m thankful for, a lot I’ve learned, and a lot I’m looking forward to. For the next few months, I want to be disciplined and work towards what I really want most, which means investing my time wisely and energetically. A metaphor I once heard was that your time is like packing to go on a long trip. There is only so much room in your suitcase; what is worthy of taking up that space? Time is the same way – what is worthy of taking your time? Do something every day that gets you a step closer to one of your goals, and do it all for the glory of God! 2 Cor 9:6 – “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” Generously give the love of Christ while investing in yourself, and do not be discouraged.

Goals for the semester:

Stay on Dean’s List – try for a 4.0!

Fulfill my position on the SST and as Alumni Relations Chair well

Finish Student-Alumni Council video project

Workout three days a week

Be a joy to those around me! Have a giant heart for others!!

Spiritual goals:

This year, I pray for help….

Reading (at least) one chapter in the Bible every day

Continuing to grow in knowledge and love of the Lord.

Falling more in love with Jesus through any challenge the year may bring.

Always remembering the truth that I am valuable, irreplaceable, and loved in the Kingdom of God.

Being willing to take giant leaps of faith

Being a woman of excitement and influence for Jesus!

Being a “cheerful giver” (2 Cor 9:7)

Being humbled by God’s grace, His indescribable gift!

As Paul put it…..

1 Cor 16:13 – “stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do EVERYTHING in love.”

For the year:

Keep up with running – another half marathon and/or tough mudder?

STUDY ABROAD!!!! And backpack for extra time!!!!

Above all, choose to be happy every day – so happy that others around you become happy, too; and live for Christ. I am grateful for this day!! Carpe Diem!
