Currently I am in my room thinking about Bible study tonight and how we talked about fear as well as trust when it comes to our relationships. I will be posting some notes from tonight, but just thought of the idea for each of us to write down our prayer request and pray for each other throughout the week. 

Right now I am praying for my brother’s salvation. I know he wants to know more about God, but doesnt know how to ask me stuff or ask questions without feeling like he is getting attacked all the time. I am praying that he comes to Bible study and God just speaks to Him and he develops a relationship with Him. 

Also praying that God removes things I value more than Him and that are distracting me from trusting God as well as limiting me from my full potential when it comes to serving and willing to obey.

Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.

— Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (via wordsnquotes)

Behold, a 120+ year old rhododendron
They rarely grow into anything larger than a shrub, let alone a tree!

Trusting God is a decision. Worry is very self centered, it is all about you. When you make the decision to trust God, you are saying ‘God’s got this’. Since He has this, I am free to do something else with the energy that was going towards worrying.

I like those people you can joke around with and have so much fun with and then have a deep conversation with and it’s not weird at all

Tonight after Bible study my friend and I had a real good deep conversation and it was nothing too serious, but just about things we needed to speak about. I just think our friendship went to the next level of finally talking about real issues when necessary, so I am happy. 

I also heard from a friend who I prayed about last night and was contacted today. We spoke about some issues as well, and I feel like a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulder. Thank you God, because I couldnt do that on my own or by my own strength.

Today’s lessons

  1. Sometimes you have to tell someone how you feel and to bring a issue to the surface.
  2. Speaking out of love is the best way to approach someone, even if they feel like you are attacking them. Do it out of love and be genuine about it
