one desire, one focus

This last week has been an incredible time of growing and learning, of seeking God and relying on Him. The theme for my dorm hall is the bride of Christ. I'm so used to being dependent on my family, that it has become a crutch. It's hard and yet really good and important to learn to be on my own.

One verse has really stood out to me this week,

Psalm 73:25-26
"Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."

I am praying that God will help me to seek Him and rely on Him only.

Psalm 119:10
"With my whole heart I have sought You; oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!"

What a good theme for your dorm! It can be hard to rely completely on Christ. The good thing is that once we do trust Him--we are in excellent hands.
