Reflection On My Personal Theology

Improved Essays
I believe that my top five strengths have definitely played a major role in shaping my personal theology and who I am today. My first strength is competition, which of course is a major part of me. My competitive nature is probably what has driven me to excel in all things I do, particularly in sports and education. Sometimes this characteristic of mine can be quite annoying though, because I tend to take things to seriously even when it should be a lighthearted event. My second strength is discipline. Discipline is another key quality of mine that has allowed me to excel in what I do. This one is definitely more useful to my theology than the last strength.

My faith was certainly shaken up quite a bit while the treatments were happening, but I was consoled by my church family and my regular family and they helped me to understand the problem of evil in the world.

I personally believe that my theology has played a big part in influencing who I am and I think it will continue to shape me into the kind of person that I want to be in the future. My theology has just helped me to be a kinder person in general; I have a heart for people and I do not think it would have been like that without my personal theology. Wherever I go or in whatever I am doing, I always hope that people can see what I do and how I act and tell that I am a Christian

However, we never truly understood every lesson and reading that was given to us, we still accepted it.…

    I do love that I am allowed to answer any questions students have about my faith or God and it is amazing how He has used that to reach students. This is why I would love to continue to teach in public schools. These kids have so many issues that I cannot even begin to relate to. They are going through situations that make little to no sense and they need the Lord. As a Christian Educator I must value each student as a God’s creation and that God has put me in a role to help mold, shape and transform these students for His…
