So I was reading crazy love while waiting in line to take my SMC placement tests (again...) and my great grandmother, the person who lent me the book highlighted her favorite verses, so I thought I would do the same in a different color so she knew they were important to me. Although not only am I highlight bible verses but other phrases or metaphors Francis Chan throws at me that I want to remember.
Some thing that really caught my attention while I was reading was the "love is patient love is kind....blah blah blah" was when he said to, instead of read "love" replace the word "love" with your name. It was humbling because that is not who I am but who I want to be. Christianity isn't that easy for me, because God doesn't want the half-hearted believer that I am...He wants all of me and it's really hard to give him that. In the Chapter I am reading, it is about the rich man and how it is hard for him to enter the kingdom of God...it's so true!
"prosperity hardens the heart" - William Wilberforce
Another verse that makes me humbled and hungry for God is Hosea 13:6 which says "When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot me" God is so good to me, and that verse explains how I am and how I want to change...it's a never ending walk with him but I love it.
Oh yeah, and as for the test goes... I got a higher score on my math but stayed at the same level on english. Grr, I have one more chance to take it, I think I should study really hard and retry.
