I was reading this recently and it really struck me. It's such a cry for help- a clear dependence on God. I was thinking about who foes in my life might be from whom I need protection. It struck me that I am my biggest foe. I've heard it before that "we all need to be saved from ourselves," but I never really contemplated that. Seriously though, how much of the crap we go through in life is completely unrelated to our own actions. Certainly there are situations that are simply out of our control, but in my life some of the most stressful times I have experienced have been a direct result of my stupidity. In all cases, we've got to humble ourselves and re-submit our lives to God, our Father, our Refuge and our Strong Tower against the foe- whoever or whatever that may be.

P.G.I.F... Twice

Tonight I was reminded of just how blessed I am to be in an environment where I am surrounded by fellow believers. Friday night, a time when most on OU's campus do a little partying, was a time of praise and worship for me and about 20 of my friends.

"Praise, Praise, Praise"/P.P.P./Puh-Puh-Puh, whatever you want to call it, began last year with a couple guitars and a few people crammed in a dorm room to praise God. Tonight it was more of an event, with 20 or so of us inside (and away from some crazy-nasty weather) lifting praise to our Father.

I cannot believe that I'm almost half way done with college. When am I ever going to have times like this after my years here? Certainly there will be more opportunities to lead worship for my brothers and sisters, but never in this same capacity. What a bummer!!!!!
