Once again, Urban at it's prime.
Routine is starting to pick up and typical human perspective is beginning to bombard my realities. The Lord has broken me time and time again these past few days. Many a sermon has spanked me in the face or pretty much begun with "Dear D'Ann, let me correct your pride and failure in the next 30 minutes." It has not been the most pleasant experience, but it has been much needed. Today, Christ unloaded this string of truths on me during quiet time and summoned me back to the simple Christian mission to focus on Him, and Him alone. "Young people, it's wonderful to be young! Enjoy every minute of it. Do everything you want to do; take it all in. But remember that you must give an account to God. So refuse to worry, keep your body healthy. But remember that youth, with your whole life before you, is meaningless." Ecclesiastes 11:9-10. Lately, I have been so confused on how to take in college. Everything has seemed centered around fun and has struck me as utterly pointless. I love how the Lord agrees, but sends me on a mission. He understands and endorses the rejection of worldly adoration of youth and senselessness. However, He states to hand it over to Him. At the end of the day, I answer to the creator of the Universe. He cares. And that is all I will ever need.
All I have to add is a piece of truth that smacked me at the game today. Stop living your life for man. If college has taught me one thing the past few days, it is that the world is one big contradiction. People repeat "do what is right" "trust in God" and other generic feel good phrases, yet two minutes later they vomit a list of things I "should" be doing all over my schedule. I can't live to make everyone happy, so I need to stop tying please to people. I am the Lord's and He conquered the world. I'll leave you on a happy note.
