From the Inside Out

It was a long day, but a good day. :) It started at 6:30 in the gym and continued with drawing class at 8. After an interesting morning in the art building (including learning about printmaking, how cool is that?),  the whole school headed to chapel. We were reminded of the simple powerful story of Jesus's life and work on the cross by a dramatic speaker. We also found out that Belhaven RUF is bringing Tim Keller to town! Looking forward to that! Next was tennis practice and I learned 3 things before heading back to the art building for an afternoon in sculpture class. 1) I can still hit (always afraid i'll forget) 2) My game needs a ton of work 3) I will always love tennis. and my team :) When I left the art building after spending a long time in my studio literally swimming in charcoal, I jumped in the car with friends to go to a little frozen yogurt shop that was having a sale. That was fun :D Then I donned my fedora and raincoat and set out again, this time to attend a friends junior voice recital. It was beautiful and all her hardwork definitely pays off. By the time we got back, it was time for the highlight of my week: RUF!!! yeah. It was that heaven meets earth kind of fellowship, worship, and teaching. We sang a song that had I had listened to on my internet radio a couple of times earlier during the week. It talks about that living in grace where when we fail or the world seems dark, there is one light that still pierces through. And I want that Person to change my heart and change my attitude to want to love Him. To want to love others. To want to live in grace and humility. The Lord must be in complete control of our lives. When I reflect on my day, it positives and all its failures I remember that each day is a part of God's work on me. Its the personal side of a big God who is in control of everything. And by His miracle He is changing our sinful hearts into hearts that seek him and understand that its not about us.

My heart and my soul, I give You control
Consume me from the inside out Lord
Let justice and praise, become my embrace
To love You from the inside out
