Day Six: “You are Loved”
God created you. He loves you! He’s going to care for you. Don’t let a rejection from a house or your perceptions of the girls cause you to have doubts about God’s plans for you.
Can you trust Him?
Recruitment is nearly over, and can I share something most people don’t talk about? This week you have been through so many emotions and you are probably running on empty. You may be celebrating at the end of what has been the best week of your life but don’t be surprised if Bid Day is disappointing, awkward, or if you’re left wondering, “Did I make the right decision?” You are totally normal! You are not alone!
Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise His holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all His benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s
The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing
- Do you feel that God is pleased with you? For those who have a relationship with Him, He delights in you and has unconditional love for you! His approval is unchanging.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for His name’s sake.
Relax today, knowing that God is with you and provides for you.
Pray for more of an awareness of God’s love and provision for you. Pray for God to give you close friends with kindred spirits in your house, dorm, classes and throughout your college experience. Pray also for God to guide you to a place where He is going to encourage you and to help you grow in your faith.
