I Wanna Be With You

One day at a time. That's what I keep reminding myself everytime I add something else to my planner. It seems as though every hour of my semester is already zoned out-even double booked at times. Can I really do all of these things? How do I not feel panicky everytime I think about the calendar? Well, it won't be easy. But I shall rest-rest in the knowledge that the Lord is in control and that all I HAVE to DO is ABIDE in Him. If that is the only requirement, then its not my job to worry. It is not a superficial denial, but an acceptance of my weakness and His strength. The Lord is walking with us through the story that He is writing.

I was laughing pretty hard with few good friends tonight. One friend was teaching us how to say some things in her language. It was a special moment, in fact, the whole evening was sweet to me because of the people that I was with, even as we stressed (or tried not to stress;) ) over our schedules. It is at moments like those, that I sense that it is the relationships and lived out life that matters more than accomplishments. As we press forward and work hard, praying that the Lord use us, He will. He will use our lives in ways we never could have imagined, yet it is none of our own doing. He is teaching me that since I am His, I can serve, I can work, I can even fail. He wants us to rely on Him fully, to lean on Him, because He wants to be in a relationship with us.

What would it take to be the person I see?
What can I do to glorify Thee?

My power is sufficiency.
Your weakness glorifies me greatly.

“My power is perfected in weakness,
My grace is sufficient for you.” ~ 2 Corinthians 12:9

  1. Hi Mary Kristyne~
    I love your blog, and the title is such a great reminder of who we are. (I have a blog called "Because of the Daisies"--so I'm partial to flowers. :) )I am friends with your mom, and I can see where you get your writing talent from. I know she is so proud of you, as you have become a beautiful Godly woman. Good luck with school, your schedule and just growing up. Don't stress now about little things--you will have plenty of time to do that in the future. :) Just ENJOY life--laughing with friends and learning about things, and everything else will fall into place. Take care of yourself.
