Reflection time! I’m currently emailing my reflections to our CMDA faculty. It’s a way she thought she could encourage the girls in our group to read the Word despite our busy schedules.
I read John 4:1-45 today.
What really struck me from this passage is that Jesus calls his food “is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work.” If I were to always remember and live out God’s Will it would be so much more substantial for my spiritual/inner health than anything else I try to fill myself with everyday. I keep reminding myself that I came to to this school for a reason, and isn’t my own will that brought me here. And in that truth I need to find a security that my non-Christian friends can be attracted to.
Another passage that struck me was when Jesus states, “God is spirit, and His worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth.” I am so so thankful now that I have that access…that ability to worship with Him in spirit….not on a special mountain/city…or not because I’m a Jew. I am able to worship and fellowship with Him because of what Jesus did on the cross.
What has struck you this week as you have done your QT? 🙂
Prayer request: We have a test coming up soon. Prayer is desperately needed. Prayer for my sister and my boyfriend to find a job. Prayer for me to be more frequent in my QTs. Prayer for me to meet with God daily and represent in everything that I do. Prayer of thanks for I am loving the people I meet and the friends I have here. Prayer of thanks for my boyfriend who has been a huge support for me even when I’m locked in my room and studying.
