Don’t worry. I won’t bore you with the details of each day of my school. 🙂 However, I do find this first week fascinating and I’d like to share some of that with you.
Today was my first day of Choir. I had mixed feelings ahead of time. I was excited because for the past three years I’ve been accompanying a choir, yet DYING to sing with one! I was a bit nervous because I didn’t know what kind of music she would pull out since it’s a secular college. But in that aspect, I was relieved. Turns out we will be singing folk songs from around the world. Japan, China, Bulgaria, etc. The first song we are working on is Finiculi, Finicula. Yay! A song I know! (BIG smile!!!) The others students were very friendly and I look forward to getting to know some of them. Ultimately, I’d love for the opportunity to share the gospel with them. Please pray to that end.
So three days a week I have the joy of driving to MV, which is 45minutes to an hour away. No, I am not being sarcastic. I truly found the drive today enjoyable. Why, you ask? Well, I shall explain. Something the Lord’s really been showing me lately is that I need to be making even MORE time to pray than I have been. With a busy life style, that’s hard to do. Although, that’s really no excuse. As I drove to the college over there I found myself turning the music off and speaking with my Best Friend. What better time?!? It really was a joyous time and I look forward to making that a habit. Something else I’ve considered for the drive back is recording myself reciting scripture and putting it on my mp3 player to listen to and memorize. Obviously, I can’t read the scriptures while I am driving. 🙂 I’ve yet to try it, but I want to make the most out of those stretches of time. If you have any suggestions, PLEASE let me know in a comment.
In my last post about school I spoke of the frustrations of online classes. Yes, they are still frustrating. But something that has really helped me is *TADA* my favorite verse! Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” My own understanding does NOT understand all that I need to learn. It wants to depend on self, but that’s impossible. I am trusting the Lord to help me through this and I KNOW He will.
