A Trying Day

Well, today was not one of my best days. I got up late (7:30) and wasn't happy almost all day. But I need to be reminded TIME and TIME again that I need to ask the Lord for help, which I did multiple times today. I had german class. That went ok. Then I spent a while doing my german homework. And then did science.

Science is a hard subject for me because I am not interested in it. So therefore I don't often understand things or don't care to understand them. If you have advice, please comment!

I did my Proverbs for the day. It was good. And then I did my homework for Wednesday night youth group.

We are reading through the book called "Pilgrim's Progress" by John Bunyan along with doing the study guide. For those of you who have never heard of it or have not read it, I suggest getting it and reading it. It is amazing. It is a story about Christian, and how he gets saved and his journey AFTER salvation, and the difficulties he faces. Today something struck me. It said, "Now according to the strength or weakness of his faith in his Saviour..." It really it me. Depending on how much strength we have in our Savior is the result of how much joy, peace, and desire to grow more is. (It mentions that in the book) It just really challenged me. I need to remember that every day. If my strength in my Lord is STRONG then I can have much joy, and peace, and will want to know Him more.

I actually did not do much more. I was on a few websites browsing around, and I printed a few things. (I had to fix my printer first) I am going to start a devotional called "The Girl in the Mirror" tomorrow. If you have read it you can post how it has helped you or suggestions while reading it. Anything you would like. I hope that the rest of your day is great and you would strive to grow in the Lord!

I don't like science class either, same reason you gave. The only reason I have to do well in it is to get good grades, because whenever I get a bad grade it makes mme depressed and unhappy with myself. I'm sorry I don't have any suggestions for you on that.

Haha, thanks Alyssa. I know, if you don't get good grades you can't get to a good college. I've been really struggling in this area. Thanks for replying!
