Dear Abba Father,
I pray for myself and all my brothers and sisters during this finals time, that despite all these worldly anxieties building up in this time (i.e. exams, papers, grades), I pray that our eyes would be solely fixed to our heavenly home as we continue this race. That we wouldn’t be running so aimlessly and working so hard to get those ‘A’s because of the worldly standards set before us, but for Your glory, to build up your kingdom, and as an act of worship all lifted up to you. Whether I get an A or a B on that paper, I don’t wanna get so caught up in what really is so fleeting in this blip of a life, and what really doesn’t matter. What could matter more than my Abba Father in Heaven, my one and only Creator, Comforter, Saviour, and Counselor? This may all sound like ramblings, but God you know every word on my heart and mind. Just wanted to life this prayer for myself and all my brothers and sisters who are currently in college, for all the anxieties to be lifted as we fix our eyes on what truly matters. Not gonna lie, I’m soooo excited to go back home for winter break after being on campus all semester, but I wanna be running this race, even during finals, for my heavenly home and my heavenly Abba Father. Even in all this studying and cramming, that my praises for You would not cease.
"We cling too much to the promises of broken people and not enough on the promises of an unbroken Redeemer."

STAHP WHAT YOU ARE DOING PLEASE! .. and take a lovely break from your day to watch Matt Chandler’s sermon at Resurgence 2013. You won’t regret it :)
"the gospel is an offense, it always has been and it always will be, but that offense makes it attractive; if you remove the offense, you remove the faith."
Pastor Mark Driscoll
"When we are totally firm and secure in God’s love for us, we will be less worried about “guarding our hearts” from pain and heartbreak as we relate to others. Jesus is the greatest example of this. He loved His Father so much He was not afraid of getting hurt by loving others. On the contrary, He died for relationships. Jesus sacrificed everything for love"
