I know many of you will scroll down reading this and disregard it. BUT I beg of you, give me your thoughts.
As we get older, we start seeing school in a different light. It is no longer a means of oppression that our parents and society have imposed on us --although some still see it that way--but we begin to see it as time of equipping our minds with the necessary knowledge for that position in society that we plan to hold.
God has placed the opportunity for a higher education in our lives and we are to be faithful to it.
But what happens when you become too faithful to it?
When you start feeling like a robot whose mind is constantly inundated with the obligations and anxieties of school.
What happens when your relationship with God dries up and you become nominal with Him?
What happens when you're always on high-alert that you simply cannot still your mind?
What happens when you feel like time is running away from you and you're chasing it?
I refuse to believe that God would put any one of us in a situation where it was impossible to see Him. What I'm trying to say is that I don't believe the institution of God would be a part of any of our lives if being in it was incompatible with being with God.
So there must be a way. In fact, because school is such a big part of all of our lives, I'm convinced that God sees it as a place were our spiritual lives can thrive, not merely survive.
I would like thoughts please. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
Also, if ya'll know any good Christian literature that speaks about this, do share!
