"Never underestimate the power of prayer and love. When someone says they love you, do not turn away but let these words warm your heart and bring you joy. The same goes for prayer; do not take such a spoken phrase lightly." Just something I wrote way back in January of 2007.
Of course, with everything that has happened in the past year, I must ask why I did not listen to what I had already said, to the countless things I had wrote down about waiting for the one person God has planned for you to spend the rest of your life with. I know it's a hard task and there are so many questions that arise, especially in a long distance relationship. Right now, I just pray that God gives me the courage to do what He has put on my heart to do.
On another note, last night at the BSU (Baptist Student Union) here on campus, we talked about hypocrisy and how, we really are all hypocrites and we have no excuses for being one. The thing is we need to concentrate on changing ourselves before we can try and change those around us, and considering changing ourselves is a never ending process...well, I believe we should learn to always be honest with those around us. When a stranger comes up and asks if you are Christian, what would you say? Which you ignore them, or would you take the chance to share with them how God has changed your life?
