I'm PANICKING right now! This is really not good. I'm not even sure why I'm on here now. Just a denial for a few more moments of everything I need to get done. My car is a mess, my room is a mess, my laundry needs to be done, I am suppose to stay at Stasia's tonight, a paper that was due tonight I talked to my teacher about and she is awesome and letting me write it tonight and turn it in before midnight... Frontier is having me start my mornings over there for training, which is good, but really overwhelming to learn everything... by the time I get back to MVI Realty for the 2nd half of the day, I have a bunch of work on my desk to complete. I have something going on every Sunday night, Monday night, Tuesday night, Wednesday night, Thursday night, Friday night, and these are all things like classes, and church and things I can't cut out even if I wanted to. Even typing this out my franticnessss is becoming more apparent. AH. What I SHOULD do right now is stop panicking and start working. That's what I should be doing. OKAY! (: SO. Me and all my phalanges are going to get to writing this paper... and doing some psychology homework if I'm lucky. Head over to Stasias... OH, and I haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks!! AND I JUST KNEWWW my Nutrition teacher was looking at me when we were talking about exercise and diet. Haha, I just wanted to stand up and say ITS NOT MY FAULT!!! But of course that's probably not the correct or adult like reaction unfortunately.

In the midst of all this panicking... I got to work and got my paper done... and I've really felt like I needed to blog this whole last week. It's one thing to read your bible, but it's another to really meditate on scriptures and apply them to your life. I feel like I do that here. It was frivilous for me to blog I felt for a long time (that's why i never blogged! lol;), until I find something worth saying. A lot of what I do say isn't often worth saying to start with, so why in the world would I want to write it down to be recorded?! (:

A couple verses that have been on my mind and heart lately is 1stly Proverbs 1:7
Nothing shuts me up sometimes when I get frantic and panicky and overwhelmed, but as my mind was reeling a thousand miles per hour, going in about 6 directions at one time, thinking about this one guy, really concerned for his soul, and then my friend, she's hurting really bad and she needs the Lord, then there's this I need to do for the church, and then there's the girls, I need to help them out, and there's my parents, my sister, my homework, forget homework! I'm late for class!! ...


What does that even have to do with what I was thinking about you're wondering? Well, nothing... but that's kind of the point. There's a reason God says, "BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD."

Take a few minutes today and think about the fear of the Lord. Reverence Him as you ought. Kneel before Him and honor Him FIRST in your life and most importantly in your heart. EVERYTHING ELSE is all vanity in comparison.

You always get me at the heart chick, really glad we are friends, and really thankful for the way in which help me daily, just to live to be FOR God. To forget all this nonsense we get caught up in called life and truly just live for Him serving Him.
Thanks girl, love you lots. Way to go on getting the paper done :)

Two quotes came to mind about truths from reading your post:

Socrates-Beware of the barrenness of a busy life.

John Yates-Beware of not having time for the one who determines how much time you have.

I also love the illustration of the teacher placing a jar at the front of the class and filling it up with large rocks then asking the class if it was full. Class says yes. Teacher says no, pours sand in amongst the rocks, and asks the class is it full. Class says yes. Teacher says no, and pours water in until it's filled and overflowing. --- Point of the story was that the big rocks represented our priorities and if we didn't have them in place first, they wouldn't fit.

Have a wonderful day in the LORD! :-)
