Life's Story

....and then there was last week. The week that I will always remember as the "set back week" of my college career. Fact is there are probably a few more of these yet to come. Yes indeed I just wanted to throw up my hands and give up. Really. I never give up on anything.

.... and then there came a breath of fresh air and the realization that these are just trials. A friend tells me that "We are in his hands. He will give us the mindset to persevere." Yes I can persevere. But why do I always have to get to the point of giving up to realize that things were not in my hands to begin with. How quickly I forget I am yours. Wake up call. Get it together call. Giving it all up to Him call. He really is there for me, for us.

God never meant for us to be in control, We were created to live like little children, dependent on the care of our heavenly Father. 

I can not live in fear of what is next.... because being fearful shuts me off and I am not able to just listen. I have to be patient and know that the greater good is working in my favor.

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord

And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident 
Takeing every step in obedience
I will serve You
While I'm waiting


They make me feel BEAUTIFUL and like I am one of a kind.

The heartfelt counsel  
of a friend is as sweet as perfume  and incense 
Proverbs 27:9

"When we consider the blessings of God- the gifts that add beauty and joy in our lives, that enable us to keep going through stretches of boredom and even sufferingfriendship is very near the top."

Note to self: Just Breath.
