It was a year ago today that I made the decision to pursue study at seminary based on changes in my business career.
And what a year it has been. I am ensconced in my studies (similar to immersed, but with the arms of a loving God wrapped around you) and getting near the end of the first term. I am heading into a Christmas season soon and looking forward to times of worship and prayer with my Lord. I am tinkering with ministry ideas and am excited about what the future holds as far as the Lord's plans for my life.
A glorious day, all in all.
And I want to share a verse that stuck in my mind a year ago as I read the Word in the morning:
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. James1:27 (NASB)
Staying unstained, helping those who would be helpless without others. Sounds like a divine plan to cwork towards on a glorious day.
