hahahah i found out im leaving tarkwa!! i was sooo suprised that i was leaving before elder king, this place has turned into one of the coolest places to serve in this mission, cant believe im leaving it sooo soon, well its been 6 months but it feels soooo sooon! hahah
elder king and i did soooo much this week, in the next few weeks we (not me anymore) are gonna soak some people!! hahaha we went to zions camp to get me my mind off home! hahah till the day i die ill always say ghana is just beyond beautiful! i love the bush, so peacful, just gives you time to think. gonna miss french man and his wifes food hahah
something ill assign you guys to read as a little homework hehehe is 1st corinthians 9:23-27.
think of race, only the one who crosses the line first gets the prize first right? but paul is trying to teach us something wayyy greater! he uses the wording ''striveth for the mastery'' he teaches us that all men run the race and its not about who gets to heaven first, but its all about self mastery, and become better within ourselves.
let us run the race inside ourselves to always be pushing ourselves to run faster, work harder, to overcome our temptations and weaknesses. in the end youll be judged not compared to what others did or placed in their race. youll be judged compared to how you were to what you became, did you try? did they become closer towards the savior? did they set goals and plan to improve? it comes down to integrity and the purity of our hearts, are willing to go through the hard, suffering pain of real work to become worthy to enter into his presence? only one way to find out.
paul concludes that we are not looking for a corruptible crown, that is, of this world. we should not be pushing ourselves to be viewed by the worlds eyes as successful or ''did it right''. we are looking for that INcorruptible crown that only the father may place on our heads, by doing the fathers will we may obtain that prize. i love pauls wise words of caution and help. love the new testament soo much!
let us all make personal goals to become better in what ever it may be! i know the lord will bless us.
