I’ve been reading this book and it has really opened my eyes to the spiritual warfare that is going on in my life.  I have always been struggling with sin and trying to give it up to God, but never quite understanding how.  This book has been a really great read and confirms that there is something bigger going on and we need to depend on God, put on our armor, and combat it.  Definitely recommend it, we all struggle and Beth Moore does an amazing job in writing about it.

Tests

So yesterday, I took a quiz and did better than I ever have on a quiz for that class.  I was surprised because I hadn’t studied.  I noticed something different about this time though, I prayed the entire time through it.  The other times I took a quiz I studied for them and depended upon my ability to study and not God.  I related this more to my life and realized that I always try to trust in my own ability to do something and not God.  I feel like a fail all of the tests He presents before me and maybe that’s because I study and know what I can do, but don’t trust in Him.  Trusting in Him is so important for everything.

Unfinished Projects

My whole life has been made up of unfinished projects.  I was thinking about this on my drive to class yesterday.  It seems as though I have never seen a fully completed project.  I always start something, but then I lose my motivation to finish.  I go in determined, but come out fizzled.  This is how my Spiritual life is too.  Everyday I try to start over and be a better person, but find myself never finishing.  I just back out and give up.  I am so grateful that I serve a God who is the King of Completed Projects.  When I sin and fall short, as we all often do, He is there to put back the pieces.  If I did this on my own, I would not even be able to put half of myself back together.  He makes me whole though.  Now as I look at my life, instead of seeing unfinished projects, I look at it as depending on a God who never fails to make it to the finish.
