Initiative.

I was just reading "My Utmost For His Highest" and Chambers spoke on initiative. I need to take more initiative in my life and stop being paralyzed by the fear of the realization of my hopes, dreams, and goals. It is as though I'm afraid that if I give my best, I will me utter failure and ruin. This however is a risk I must take in whatever I do.
I need to take initiative and stop the daydreaming and procrastination.

Interestingly enough Oswald also included a strange bit at the end of his devotional for the 20th of February:
"If you are in love with someone, you don't sit and daydream about that person all the time-- you go and do something for him. That is what Jesus Christ expects us to do. Daydreaming after God has spoken is an indication that we do not trust Him."

Though this is example is meant simply to parallel non-initiative after our Lord has spoken, I need to keep the former in mind as well.

School.

This semester was suppose to be my last easy semester, but I suppose I was terribly mistaken. It is all starting to pile up like a hundred people trying to get through a single door all at once. On top of trying to conquer my homework, I am suppose to find a pt job! I am going to be worn out by the end of this semester!

It is quite fortunate though because my classes are exceptionally interesting. Online "western civ.", Chem, and bio. Oh, and GNED :)

I need to start focusing on how I am projecting myself with regard to how I pay attention to my studies. I need to be learning this information now so I can be a better ambassador for Christ in the future ministry that He has prepared for me to serve. In complaining and half-studying/studying for the test I am not glorifying my Maker, and am not reaching the full potential that He has gifted me with.

So I guess that is my new years resolution..To be a better ambassador for Christ through how I handle the daily affairs of my life.
