Doing my Devotion

Doing my devotion
Not just to go through the motion
But to read that portion of scripture
And to not go by emotion
But to know that God is speaking

Its almost time and for class I don't wanna be late
Flipped my bible open
And the words just spoke into my situation
Questions I was asking
Of what would I do or say
God gave me the answer

Doing my devotion
What have I to loose?
Nothing actually cos I'm investing into eternity
Even though I may feel dry sometimes
I'll stay faithful because I know deep down
It is worth every bit of my effort

Peace that surpasses all understanding

It's amazing how prayer can change the way you feel instantly. You have so many things over your head yet you feel the joy, making you wonder what just happened. How in the instant of an "Amen" all your worries and doubts just fade away. Yes, chores will be chores and assignments and tests are still responsibilities, but the worrying and "waking up from your sleep because it was a nightmare" scare won't help whatsoever but just get our emotions haywire. 

Philippians 4:7 -  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Yup! It would =) the peace of God would surely help through it all. Guarding my heart and my mind. No point allowing a heavy feeling to fill my heart or negative thoughts to enter my mind. 

To hold the hands of my dear friend
And to pray together hoping it will cast out fear
Of being a college student
And the many responsibilities
Making life so not easy

We just said a prayer for each other
And hope that the feelings would not be a bother
Simple prayers of 2 girls
But God heard and He worked
And there was a change in the atmosphere

Peace filled us and it was incredible
Like "life is truly worth living"
And we need to live it for God
For we were called
To be so much more...
