A therapy session in Five Minutes: {Growth}

Posted on: 9.22.2011

Burdened with the depravity of humanity I enter my classes day after day. Political Science is not for the faint of heart, it’s a wonder I chose this course of study. When I try to remember my logic, it escapes me. What was I thinking!?

Then I remember Who ordains my steps, Who wills the direction of my path.

No, I am in this field for a reason. It may just be that my purpose here is to be salt and light in this place. Many people with whom I have daily interaction speak boldly, harshly against all that I stand for. Who don’t even know that I am one of “the others” in that group of humans they seem to so disdain. Yet, though I am affronted continually by their cutting words, I leave classes day after day with a heart burdened not only for humanity in general, but for the people Strategically Placed in my sphere of influence. My prayer is to be wise in my words and deeds with Christ as my momentum.

This is a season of growth.

Linking up over here:

Post Script:
I do want to assure any readers that my references here do not reflect my thoughts on one side of the political spectrum or the other. I speak from my experiences thus far at a public State University and would likely hold true in many fields of study in this era of “post-christian” secularism.


  1. Wow, good for you. Love your outlook in this season and time of growth. Lovely to meet you :)

  2. I needed to read "Then I remember Who ordains my steps, Who wills the direction of my path."

    thanks !

  3. We need more Christian's out in the field, so to speak. Beautiful post!


  4. I liked your title: a therapy session five minutes. That's just how this writing exercise feels--therapeutic & cleansing. God bless you as you continue to serve Him and grow in Him during your studies.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog as well ;)


I love to hear your thoughts!
