I have a lot of hopes and dreams,a lot of ambition. There are several things that I set out to accomplish,like participating in the UCDC internship this fall, and broader long term goals like grad school, but I think its important to remember that God is sovereign over our lives, and we should place all of our desires before him. As the Epistle James says,
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.” But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.
So Im trying to be intentional about where I place my bets and who gets the glory, because I have been blessed beyond measure and I just want it to be known that it is not me, rather a supreme divine Being- I call it God, you may call it Allah, Buddha or Nature, what’s important is that we don’t forget where our blessings come from.
