The Next Choice Is Upon Me
I can hardly believe it!
Registration for the spring semester at DTS opens next week. Next week I should be worrying about papers and a midterm exam. Not what I want to take starting the end of January, 2009.
And because of that I have to start thinking about the fact it is almost 2009! What happened to the 00's? They are almost gone. Pretty soon it will be the teens of all things. Unless you believe in Mayan Cosmogenesis (I do not), in which case, don't sweat the teens.
It is enough work getting through my first semester here without thinking about my next semester. Too much planning ahead cannot be all that good, it is not biblical:
"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34 (NASB)
There is a $50 late fee if I do not register in the next two weeks, so I guess I have to worry a little bit about tomorrow. About $50 worth I guess.
But there is a fine line between prudent planning and worrying. You cannot just sit there and wait for the future to show up. You have to plan a bit for it, work towards it and seek out the Lord's will for your part in it. You cannot sit on a aprk bench and wait for Jesus to come down the path. He gave us instructions, He gave us a commission. And we have to fit that into the world we live in.
So we have to be able it, doing our part.
But I just realized I have not run into any Mayans on campus this semester, but then again, I don't know all that many people yet.
