For my last semester of nursing school, I have to complete a certain amount of hours for my leadership class. I can attend sessions, take online courses, or attend meetings for executives. Today, I attended my university’s leadership session, and the theme was integrity. I did not have much expectations for I live in a very postmodern, relative community. However, I was very upset by how prevalent it is. Thank the Lord that he delivered me from my rebellion and opened my eyes to the truth. This university needs God to revive His churches to really make an impact in this college campus. It certainly one of the darkest in the nation, and I myself find it very challenging receiving my education. The lack of morality really challenges me on my boldness, my integrity, faithfulness, and more. It is very important for a Christian to be connected to a healthy church when going to a place like this.
I realized that people (including myself) needs to step up and stand against this dark place by calling sin for what it is, and not being wishy-washy. I am constantly stressed by this spiritual warfare. So, when I had dinner earlier, I tried to call some brethren to talk to (with my headset) while eating. I’ve done that many times in the past and had very good conversations. This time, no one picked up. I felt a little discouraged and lonely, but then the Lord reminded me that He is always with me. He reminded me that this is the opportunity to really spend sweet communion with Christ.
By spending time in prayer and in the word, my love for Christ will deepen. And my stronghold for integrity will be fortified.
