Devotional

By Brooke Pland

Lately, one particular worship song has been popping up around me over and over again... The song is beautiful, but I really didn’t think much about it until I realized that the Gospel passage God had put on my heart for this very devotional – “The Wise and Foolish Builders,” from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount – is the exact teaching the song is based on.

I am currently training for a marathon. I know, I also question myself for willingly choosing to run 26.2 miles. The marathon isn’t until October so there is still a lot of running left to do – oh joy. Already, God has been teaching me about discipline and the limited capacity I have as a human. I have the same amount of time in my day as I used to, but now I have to add going for a run. And warming up. And cooling down. It all adds up and takes time out of my day, meaning I have to sacrifice something.

Back in my “glory days” of playing high school football, my coach was famous for his motivational one-liners. During the dog days of summer – usually at the end of practice while running wind sprints – all I could think about was being done and getting back to the comfort of cold water and AC.

Last year, our family got sheepadoodle puppy. I drove eight hours to Pennsylvania to pick up Buster from an Amish family that had been raising him on a dairy farm. Buster was a cute puppy in the way that all puppies are cute. He was also visibly dirty, and brought some unwanted relics of the dairy farm with him. This guy needed a bath.

What do you spend the majority of your time thinking about? When you have free moments to daydream, where do you notice your thoughts wandering? As you’re getting ready for a busy day ahead at school or work, what’s going through your mind?

History often has a way of repeating itself. Just this past week, gas prices rose due to inflation, tensions in Russia and Ukraine have yet to cease, and the most popular song globally on Spotify is Kate Bush’s - Running Up that Hill. Looking at you Stranger Things. Turn back the page to mid 1980’s and you’ll see an eerie familiarity with our current state of events. Which got me thinking, why is that history tends to repeat itself? I wonder, however, if it correlates with our ability, or in most cases our inability, to remember.

As a college student, I always liked kicking my summers off with a good lie to myself. It would start each May just as finals were coming to a close. I would make big plans for my ideal summer full of rest.

Anyone else coming into Summer already feeling nervous about a Summer job, internship, or next school year? For me, entering into this Summer feels like entering into a new, nerve-wracking season.

As the days have been getting longer recently, I’m more aware this year than I have been in a while of the opportunities that summer brings to grow my relationship with God. Hear me out, I know I have time for that regardless of how much daylight we get. But in summer, my days just feel lighter.

What does all of this mean for us as we prepare to head back to campus though? How do we incorporate the things we’ve learned about our faith into our lives in our Greek chapters? How do we be Greek AND Christian?
