I was just reading through a journal I have used for about a million things throughout the past few years (some thoughts from reading the Word, some prayers, some scriptures, etc.), & I was reading some of the things I wrote back during my sophomore year of college. I am so encouraged by reading what God was teaching me back then & some of the things He revealed to me, & also how far He has brought me since then. He has taught me SO MUCH, & changed me, it's amazing. Sometimes you only realize how far you have to go before looking like Jesus. Ya, there is a lot that needs to be done in me to get there. But it's amazing how much God has already done in me, & it is good to be reminded of that. "& I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6
On another note, it seems I have sprained my #1 finger (that being the finger you use to say, "we're number one! whoo!"). Last night I was surprised to notice that my finger was too swollen to bend completely, & upon further inspection, it was also purplish-blue. I have no idea how I did such a thing, but it's kind of annoying & should go away.
