~ 1 Timothy 1:5
Tomorrow morning I step onto Dallas Theological Seminary to begin the next chapter of life on the path you have laid out for me. Feeling anxious and nervous, about getting started and staring at the long road ahead, but at the same time feeling peace because You have asked me to go and You are with me. I ask, Lord, will You help me to study and learn well; not only for a grade but also as preparation for what You have for me. Use this season to refine me and mold me into the man You are calling me to be. For the sake of you Kingdom and the Glory of Your Name, I ask will You please train me and use me. And help me to remember that the two greatest commandments are to Love You and Love People. Help me to seek and love You, more than study and head knowledge, but You personally. And may all that I am taught and all that I learn, stir in me a love and passion for You and those You place around me. Teach me Truth, and help me to Love Well. And as I stare at the task at hand, help me to find my rest, strength, encouragement, and peace in You.
