Devotionals

By Emily Montgomery

Trials, challenges, hard times, suffering, grief - whatever it’s been for you recently, it's hard enough as it is. Combine that with trying to have the “right Christian attitude” about it, ugh.

The past couple of years I have been facinated with movies and tv shows about fighting. I LOVED the movie "Creed"- the illegitimate son, Adonis, of legendary boxer, Apollo Creed, who follows in his father's footsteps and boxes a world champion. It has everything I love- a good underdog story, training montages, action and excitement, a love story, and best of all: Michael B. Jordan. I'm also into the Netflix series, "Glow"- a show about a group of rag-tag actresses who find themselves on a women's wrestling show. Women who kick butt- yep that's awesome.

Do all the things! That’s how we often approach life - balancing classes, internships, being on a million exec. teams, hanging out with friends, and finding time to do laundry.

The summer after my junior year of college, I interned with a lifestyle magazine. My internship gave me opportunities to write. I also got to attend art gallery openings, clubs and other events around town that wanted press. It was what I thought I wanted to do.

In the midst of college, it's easy to become distracted. From chapter meetings, to class, to work, we find ourselves just trying to survive, rather than thrive. The reality is, we lose our purpose.

The human brain is incredible. 

I bet you didn't think that would be the first sentence of the first summer devotional. And maybe you're hating me a little bit right now because you'd rather be thinking about the beach than neuroscience. But bare with me.

2017. It's Saturday of Easter weekend. One year ago. It seemed like such a peaceful day. My housemate was moving into our new house and as I waited for her to arrive, I watched my new street and dreamed about opportunities we would have. I never expected what would happen next.

Holy Saturday marks the day after the crucifixion and the day before the Resurrection. Saturday was the Sabbath in this culture, the day of rest, the day each week when no one was permitted to work. Everyone is in their homes. No one is at Jesus’ tomb.

I grew up in a traditional Methodist church. We recognized Advent, Lent, Easter and everything in between. But if you asked me if I understood why we observed Easter the way we did, I would have no idea. Words like "atonement", "sacrificial lamb", and “Good Friday” went over my head.

Well, the time has come. Summer break is over and school has started again (unless you're a quarter school, which means you have another few weeks). For many of you, today is your first day back to classes.
