At one hearing, a blind woman tearfully explained how she lost a prestigious scholarship opportunity after her GPA fell because her reader was laid off. That classroom assistance was essential because math figures needed verbal translation.
Another mobility-impaired student testified that losing transportation services made moving between campus buildings extremely painful. It also affected her grades when attending some classes became impossible.
Sometimes we let our thoughts get caught up in the past and we obsess over our old struggles and sins. When this happens, we start to feel guilty and beat ourselves up for what we used to do wrong. When you find yourself stuck in that rut, stop…
U know how in winter it gets so cold and u think u will never be hot again and in summer it gets so hot u think u will never be cold again I think that is how it is with ur feelings like when u r sad u think u will never be happy and when u r happy u think u will never be sad. But u will be hot again and u will be cold again and u will be sad again but most of all u will be happy again
“When God says no, it can be heartbreaking, suffocating and something that will cause you to examine your entire life. But it is also for a greater good, a good that has not been seen by our eyes, a good that has not been touched by our hands, a good that will ultimately bring glory to Christ and a good that will ultimately bring about restoration to ourselves. For now, it’s okay to mourn and cry out; Christ understands the pain of rejection more than anyone in all of existence.”—
I’ve made peace with a lot of things that were bothering me and I feel a lot better. I just had to be honest with myself. That’s hard to do sometimes especially when it comes to having feelings for other people. But when it’s time to move on, it’s time to move on. Pray about it. Have a good cry. Get on with life.
when you want to write about someone but it seems like that’s all you’ve been writing about so you don’t want to write about them anymore but you don’t talk to anyone about them and what happened because you feel like nobody will understand but you can’t keep the feelings and thoughts bottled inside any longer so you write and cry and get angry.
Don’t be discouraged if your a new Christian and your still struggling with many of the same old thoughts and habits.Your mind had been previously programmed to live independently of God and that is a chief characteristic of our old nature or the flesh. As a new creation in Christ, we have the mind of Christ and the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. Get plugged into a good church and a small group and you will see and be amazed at all God has in store for you.
Church this morning was just what I needed! I’ve been praying about this church ever since I looked it up and they preached about community. That was something I’ve been praying about and the sermon really put in perspective my need for community and why I haven’t grown in Christ like I’ve wanted to. So I’m praying that that is conformation and that’s the church for me. They also need to volunteers to help with some children’s dance classes. Children and dance - two things I love! But I don’t know because school is gonna be a lot of work and dance isn’t my calling. I’ve participated in dance ministry and loved it, but I don’t know if I’m ready to choreograph and lead (But maybe they won’t make me do that lol. But they are looking for more teachers). We’ll see!
I’m excited to check out this new church tomorrow. Yes, the church home search has begun. I do know a church out here already that I really like, but since this is a time for trying new things, I figured why not?
