Thank You Father

Well I certainly have not posted in a long time, so I figured I better post something, just so Blogger doesn't shut me down. I'm home from Moody and am eagerly anticipating Christmas (I can't believe it's just three days away!). Christmas really snuck up on me this year, what with the new school and all. Speaking of Moody...

Moody is an amazing school! I truly love my time there and already am dreading the day when I will have to leave and go into the "real world." I love living and interacting with so many of my peers who are eagerly seeking to live for Christ. I love sitting under and learning from true scholars, men who know more than I can ever hope to even read! Their insights into the Word are astonishing! And lastly, I love that my primary textbook is the Word of God. I love how everything I learn, do and talk about at Moody centers around the Bible! I am so blessed! I was at a friend's house last night and his dad was telling me how he envied what I am doing. It got me thinking - I have so much to be thankful for! Very few people in this country (much less the whole world!) have the opportunity to devote three years to studying the Bible! I was talking to my RA a few weeks ago (he's a senior) and he was telling me that as he looks back on his time at Moody, he has no regrets. I don't think he means to say that he doesn't regret anything, but rather that, by and large, he has taken advantage of his time at Moody and is satisfied. I want to be able to say that too. I want to be able to look back and say, "I didn't waste one second!" Of course, that won't happen, but I need to strive for that goal every day! These three years will be up in no time. Soon Moody will be only a memory. I am praying that God will cause me to be thankful and appreciate all that He has blessed me with and also that He will help me to be productive and wise in what I choose to do with the time that He has given me.

Death is coming and my time here is short.
