Though the seasons change, Your love remains
It’s still crazy how my mood can go from GREAT GREAT LIFE IS AMAZING GOD YOU’RE AMAZING (legit, have had a solid 3 days of 8/10 and above in a row… and my life is currently full of so many stories of how He knows my heart’s every desire and little whim and doesn’t hesitate to abundantly lavish His love on me) to anxiousanxiousanxiousgonnafailgonnadropoutidontdeservetobeherehowdidigetthisfarinthefirstplace -breathe- somuchworkwheretostart
It’s been a hectic, crazy and yet immensely wonderful week. Currently waging war with my printer that has gone absolutely berserk. I don’t think I’ve managed to print a single lecture where the slides didn’t run back to front or in different orders on different pages or upside down on different sides………………. #adulthood
I started lectures on Monday, then had to cook for 35 people as part of a grub crawl with CU. I managed to find an incredibly enthusiastic side of myself that genuinely enjoyed approaching and talking to new people. And general freshers events.
Remember some time back when I talked about an opportunity to lead and serve presenting itself and me being afraid to take it? I decided to do it, and not once have I regretted that decision. Excited to be leading CMF this year alongside one of my fave people ever :’) Sometimes only looking back can I see what God was doing when He closed certain doors. Some of those slamming in my face still sting a little, but when I think about fulfilling His purpose in me and my purpose for Him I get !!!! excited !
Another week ahead of more lectures, and more intensive ones at that. Trying to remember things from first year is frankly quite difficult. Really looking forward to clinics, and back to routines and this new season and stepping out into the light and on and on and all that bright and shiny stuff
“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV
There’s nothing that I have need of
‘Cos there’s nothing you haven’t done
You make my soul alive
You put your love inside.
Two days to go till third year starts! I’ve been good recently, probably the best i’ve been in over a year…. Let’s hope this continues and remains when third year actually starts.
“Empathy isn’t just listening, it’s asking the questions whose answers need to be listened to. Empathy requires inquiry as much as imagination. Empathy requires knowing you know nothing. Empathy means acknowledging a horizon of context that extends perpetually beyond what you can see.”
– Leslie Jamison, The Empathy Exams
And oh as you run
What hindered love
Will only become
