Today, as I was looking back on my two years here at Bible School- I was struck with just how very much I have learned in a relatively short amount of time. So many classes, so much discipleship and mentoring, so many situations to grow through. It has definitely been overwhelming at times, and I feel like especially this semester, it’s been hard because I feel almost burnt-out. And, not in a negative way, but just sort of drained from learning so much and being so busy. I don’t feel as if a lot of what I’ve learned in my head has actually become true in my heart yet….but I am hopeful that as life goes on, God will continue to internalize the truths that I’ve been taught. By His grace, I can continue to become rooted, strengthened, and established in His Word (Colossians 2:6-10).
Also, I was thinking today about the verse:
“If we are faithless, still He remains faithful.” ~2 Timothy 2:13
And that is so amazing- because I feel like so often, I am faithless in my relationship with God, I don’t live the way that I should, or I get caught up in sin or complacency….but the coolest thing is that God is still a solid rock- utterly faithful! He is such a firm place to stand, a safe place, a refuge, and a firm foundation! And I am so grateful. God is good.
“O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness, you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.” ~Isaiah 25:1
