I am a 3rd year Civil Engineering major also pursuing a minor in Religious Studies. Is it to fill my GE requirements? To appear well-rounded to outside parties? Both are true, but the real motivation comes from my one life goal: to build a church. My entire life has come from a deep passion for serving others. I knew that working in the field of Civil Engineering would allow me to provide unseen support to thousands of people every day, whether it be the road they’re driving on, the bridge they walk across, or the home that they live in. In the bigger picture, however, the real dream is to combine my faith with my skill. I want to build establishments that have both integrity of structure and of purpose. Of course it would be nice to have a career that supports a nice lifestyle, but I believe it is much more. Each person should work towards the bettering of others and I feel like ultimately building a church would fulfill that for me.@1 month ago with 6 notes
*Sorry if this ramble-y or disorganized. It’s been a little while!
So for Lent 2014, I’ve decided to reinvest in myself and my relationship with God. I spread myself so thin and put so much time and effort into others that I often forget that self-care is important too!
How did I get here?! In the past year, I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone tell me that they needed to take a step back from their responsibilities in order to take care of themselves. And the thing is, I understand that completely! I really really do, because life can get really hard and busy for people.
Right now, that person is kinda me. In all of those times that people needed help, my personality and my big heart always just want to jump in and take full responsibility for them. I want to help them out because 10/10 times I genuinely love and care for that person! However, when it becomes 1, 2, 3, or even 4 people… it can becoming daunting for a single person!
I’ve talked to a lot of people about my load and I keep hearing the same things. “Get some sleep.” “You do a lot.” “You are crazy.”
But my favorite thing I’ve heard, especially from this week: “It is possible. God is just making you stronger!”
It’s really amazing when people believe in you, pray for you, and support you in what you do. So assessing where I am in my faith, I’d say the past month has been too much about me helping others and less about drawing my strength from the One who loves and supports and believes in me the most!
My goals for this Lenten season:
I feel like some may look at this as too easy of a Lent for a person. To be honest, I’m not even consistent enough on simple things like this! I’ve always felt like I’m far too busy to fit anything into my schedule, but I heard a very inspiring and motivating quote a couple of days before Lent.
"Every Christian needs a half an hour of prayer each day, except when he is busy, then he needs an hour." - St. Francis de Sales
No more excuses, Lord! My body is a temple and even just 30 minutes in a day will strengthen me physically and spiritually. Stretch me, mold me, use me, and guide me to whatever path and life you see fit. Not my will, but Yours. Have a blessed Lent my friends!@1 month ago with 4 notes
I find this very important… the Church is not holy because of the people in it, but because of its holy creator, Jesus! We approach the Eucharist as sick people in need of spiritual medicine. The only cure for our sins is He who conquered all.@1 month ago with 1 note
