Easter has come and gone. I was so busy that I didn't even have time to think about it. At about midnight last night, I went to the cafeteria to get Easter egg chocolates. But is Easter really about chocolates? No. It is about God who lives. I think over the last few months I've been in Waterloo, I have pushed God away from myself. Last night, however, I needed God more than ever as I was overwhelmed by the pressure of having to write the exams.
I have not once been afraid to write exams whether prepared or not, but this time, it was very much different.
Well, I woke up this morning and did a little preparation. When I went to write the exam, I was not afraid any more. I guess I could have done a lot better on it though. Oh well. :S I guess I will have to come up with excuses for my poor academic performance really quickly.
2 Corinthians 5:1-5
For instance, we know that when these bodies of ours are taken down like tents and folded away, they will be replaced by resurrection bodies in heaven - God-made, not handmade - and we'll never have to relocate our "tents" again. Sometimes we can hardly wait to move - and so we cry out in frustration. Compared to what's coming, living conditions around here seem like a stopover in an unfurnished shack, and we're tired of it! We've been given a glimpse of the real thing, our true home, our resurrection bodies! The Spirit of God whets our appetite by giving us a taste of what's ahead. He puts a little of heaven in our hearts so that we'll never settle for less.
