Only 7 days, 20 hours, and 25 minutes to graduation. Not really sure how I feel about that, but I guess it doesn't really matter much how I feel. It is coming whether I'm ready or not. So for the last week of college... BRING IT ON!!!! I shall defeat you

A New Day

Life is extremely busy and it never seems to slow down, not even after graduation (so I've heard!) The major crisis is that we often want to put off God's calling until we "have more time." Christ wants to meet with us everyday to impart His power upon us so that we may go out and conquer this world with the love of a Father whose love never ceases. 
     "The same power that Christ exercised when He walked visibly among men is in His word." 
                                                                                                           -Ministry of Healing p. 122
When we come to meet with Him for our daily bread, He can supply us with the gusto needed to tackle a full day.

A Quiet Place
There is a quiet place, 
Far from the rapid pace
where God can soothe my troubled mind.
Sheltered by tree and flow'r,
There in my quiet hour
with Him my cares are left behind.
Whether a garden small,
Or on a mountain tall, 
New strength and courage there I find;
Then from this quiet place
I go prepared to face a new day
With love for all mankind.
                                      -SDAH 503

Can this really be?

Think of the most amazing person you have ever met. The one you could sit and talk for what seemed like mere minutes, but in reality was hours. That someone who can make the worst day take a 180 degree turn. The only one who can tell you the most hurtful truths, yet not be regarded as malice. That special person who means the whole world to you. Have you figured out who that is?

Now, move that person far away. Not like a few states away, but across the oceans to the other side of the planet. Imagine not getting to talk to that person for weeks upon weeks. Never being able to hug that person when all is total chaos. Never a chance to sit and cry while holding each other close. How do you keep the connection? How can you continue to grow your relationship? How can you truly say "I love you?"

One more. Take a trip to the airport, get on the first plane leaving, and don't look back. Let your imagination run wild with emotions. Count down through every exhausting moment until touchdown. Hold back the urge to burst out in a sprint through this new and foreign place. Forget your hunger, your tiredness, your lack of all comfort. Pass through the gates into a totally new world. Now search. Look everywhere. But nothing! How could this be? Was it all in vain? Never give up. Pursue with all your heart and body. Finally, there on the bench, that one who gave up so much for you. The one who holds you so near to heart. Can this really be?

No matter how many miles, oceans, or galaxies may seem to come between, there is always One who is close by.
