Janny, I met you when you were a young, excited freshman and now you’re more than halfway done with PA school. I’m so proud of you and God has been so faithful. I see more and more how much He loves you :) #soonfamily #kccc #ucla #somethingsneverchange

Hi ladies,

I’m meditating on Psalm 37:4 this morning.

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

This has been one of my favorite verses, but I just read it in a new light today. I think you can read it to mean that God will show give you anew the desires of your heart. So he will give you new desires, fill you with what his desires are. Rather than give you your existing desires. It’s up to us to empty the cup (the metaphor from Pauline’s old pastor), so that God can pour in and give us those desires.

So we might not even have or know those desires yet, but he will show them to us. The desire to know him more, to love him, to serve him.

I made a chart to represent some of the commands and promises in the Psalm:


God’s commands for us:
Trust in the Lord and do good
Take delight in the Lord
Commit your way to the Lord
Trust in him
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him
Hope in the Lord and keep his way

God’s promises:
He will give you the desires of your heart

He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun
He will exalt you to inherit the land

We can work on that first column, knowing that God will deliver on his promises!

What have you all been meditating on this week?

They will stumble and fall but that doesn’t mean they’ve lost their way. They need a little help and… Hope.

Heaven

Just watched a Trailer for the movie “heaven is real” and it reminded me of how this life on earth is so temporary but not useless/ futile/ a passing stage. Instead, the things we do in this life and the things we see and experience affect eternity.

Just finished a meeting with my new co-adviser and my research mentor and it was very humbling. Being told I can’t write, that I can’t do this or that… That I need this. Is very humbling. I definitely need a lot of improvement and I won’t give up. I’m thankful that my co-adviser is willing to work on me with this. But I also know it is very scary and I’m walking on ice being in a research program.

So, Jesus, I pray that during these times I will keep the kingdom in mind and press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

In friendship…we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another…the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting—any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work.
Christ, who said to the disciples, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you,” can truly say to every group of Christian friends, “Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another.” The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.
