'A personal journal record'

I found my prayer journal from grade twelve and it's both humbling and pretty neat going through it. I've never been one for much introspection, but I'm beginning to see that I need to examine myself and see what my priorities and loves in life are on a constant basis. I only kept this journal as part of a one-year Bible-reading program I did but I'm thankful I took enough time to do such a thing during one of the most pivotal years of my life. This is one of my favourite entries, mostly because I can definitely see God's hand in it:

Maundy Thursday
"May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed." - Psalm 20:4
I have learned that this will happen only if I seek God first and do not do anything [sic] according to what I want but rather what God wants. Regarding post-secondary education, God will make my plans succeed if I seek to do His will, so I'm going to learn more about Him and strengthen my knowledge and walk by going to Bible college.
