Philippians 2:12-18

Kinda crazy but I haven't posted all summer and on Thursday I go back to school.  Senior year is going to be very busy for me.  I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but it's all stuff that's good for me in theory.  If nothing else I will get a lesson in not worrying, in trusting, and in time management.  I've been in Philippians for a large part of the summer, and in the current circumstances, this passage speaks to me especially.
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.  Likewise you also should be glad and rejoice with me.
