When we take the time to see what the writer and God are trying to tell us through the passage, we can more effectively study the Bible and extract more information that has relevance to our Christian walk. Romans 11:33 through 12:2 display praises sent to God that also present questions about his character that, when answered, give us a depiction of the vastness of God’s glory. The second part of this passage tells us how we should live – striving to be like minded with Christ.
Discipleship and Mark's Gospel Mark's Gospel can tell us the entire truth about discipleship, telling Christians about the faith, responsibility, and sacrifice involved in following Jesus. Some may even say that we glimpse a harsh reality of what it really means to be a true Christian disciple and to have complete faith. Although in saying this, it is important to note that Mark's Gospel does also cover the rewards and the actual meaning of discipleship. This is important to include as Mark's Gospel was written at a time when Christians endured much persecution. They may have wondered why they should tolerate this treatment without any kind of reward and so Mark included this in his gospel.
The thing I learned from this chapter is that those who wait on the Lord with never be put to shame. We must also learn to value other. Learning to ask for help and to not try to do it on our own.

The book of Proverbs tells us that we need to cling on to Him which to me that means we should follow His teachings and do whatever it takes to be with God so we can share in God's life in heaven. When something bad happens to us and we don't know how to handle it we can always pray to God for help, instead of doing what may seem right to us may be wrong to God, that is why we should pray to Him for help. If we trust in God then he will help us to make the best of the situation. As long as we believe in God then he will forgive us. I know that if we confess our sins often so that we don't forget some of them later that he will forgive us as long as we are truly sorry for them, we do our penance and we ask him for forgiveness then he will forgive us.

But, keeping a journal has taught me to make a habit of getting up every morning to spend some private time with God.
