GETTING STARTED 

How often do you have something in mind before you do it? Do you plan out exactly what your semester will look like before it starts? Or make big decisions in your head before consulting family and friends or God first? As Greeks, most of us are used to planning our lives and our days out down to the minute. Since most of us are very busy, this is a must. But sometimes we take it to extremes.

GETTING STARTED

Open up in prayer and invite the Holy Spirit to be with you. Spend 5 minutes being silent and listen to what God may be speaking to you and pray about what He is saying to you.

GETTING STARTED

During the summer as you ran around on your study abroad and worked at your dream internship, did you ever feel like you were pretending to be an adult? Maybe you were a camp counselor leading children or maybe you worked in retail earning money for tuition. Regardless of what you were doing, summer is usually a time where we are trying new things, learning about who we are and learning just how wise we think we are. It's an experience that we try to carry over with us as we go back to school in the fall.

PHILIPPIANS 2:3-11

3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

READ JOHN 6:66-69

66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.

67 “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve.

68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”

Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
