- I continually find myself planning my life and immediately assuming that this is God's will for me. I have to remember that I am not in the dental hygiene program yet, and God might be leading me in a different direction entirely if I don't get in.
- I tend to get discouraged and anxious when I think about my future, instead of resting in the Lord.
- I need to learn to let my plans go, instead of using them as my life manual. "A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps."-Prov 16:9
Finally, I would like to say that I am so thankful for a family who has been supportive of this dream of mine. They encourage me when I am feeling down, and help fix my eyes on Jesus when I have them fixed on myself. I love all of them so much. My parents have been Godly examples to me, and I am blessed with 4 younger brothers and sisters who make me laugh and smile when I don't feel like it.I've been repeating the chorus of this beautiful hymn to myself whenever I feel that I am losing focus on what is truly important.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
What have all of you been up to? I would love to hear from you!
