Boston University: Facing Fear, Trusting God #3

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Hebrews 4:14-16

 

I’m lacking confidence lately. I feel like I’m running just ahead of everything that needs to be done, but only barely.

I’ve reluctantly accepted a later bed time and the fact that this is probably how it will be for the rest of the year.

I feel like somehow, I’ve also accepted defeat. The class average on the first paper…wasn’t good. Like everyone, I suppose, I’m a bit (okay very) critical with myself. I keep trying to remind myself that this is the first paper and worth the least amount of points.

Finally, I’ve opened the devotional book Choom bought me (yay!). One of the passages I read today I am really liking: Hebrews 4:16, the last sentence of the quote above. Doesn’t it sound wonderful? Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Throne of grace. It sounds very comforting at the moment.
