Boy, has it been an insane first almost-month of school!! And I wouldn't ask God for anything less.

A couple weeks ago at House Church (smallgroup), one of my fellow HCers challenged us all to challenge ourselves. Mine was to pray for hardship. Why would anyone in their right mind do such a thing? Because I know that in my most vulnerable times, my God is more real to me than ever. When I walk around struttin' my stuff, believing that I'm okay because of my own works, that is someone who is not in their right mind.
Don't get me wrong - I love having a good time with my friends, studying & learning, and just relaxing sometimes, enjoying His creation, but I also believe it's good to suffer. Be in a situation you simply can't control, because it makes me stronger.

"Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope." 
Romans 5:3
