Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Spring Semester 2018

Well break has been nice and I'm just not ready to start school back up again.  I have that desire to get back into blogging, but have a feeling that just like last year I'll get too busy and it will be pushed to the side.  But we shall see...

I got my school stuff today and am officially ready for the spring semester to start...and be over.  Well, I still have to log in and set up my courses online and hopefully that will be easy, it's always given me problems in my last classes.  I'm taking two classes this semester so that should be interesting and difficult, but I'm excited about the classes and they should both be easier, because they are computer classes, rather then a math class.  One starts Monday and the other starts in the next two-three weeks.

It's crazy how fast things change.  Our Thursday night Bible hang-out for college group has taken a drastic change and though all in God's plan and all good, it's been another thing that's been hard and way out of my comfort zone.  Its turned from a hang-out to a bible study now.  New people.  And just not the thing I'm completely excited about each week.  But I do walk away each time seeing my sin and areas where I've fallen short, where I need the Lords help, and in all I'm growing and pushing myself.

I've been working on being content in where I'm at in life.  I've compared myself to others so much, I've put my hope in things of this world instead of the Lord and I find myself upset striving for things that won't satisfy.  How do I find joy in where I'm at?  Most of the time I don't know.  But I've found that removing things like Instagram and talking to people (especially older and more mature) can really help me see what is true and what is a false wall put up.  Praying for others instead of for myself also helps to see that I am so truly blessed in what the Lord has given or not given me.

Sometimes all I need to do is take a deep breath... look at today and what needs to be done, and tomorrow, Lord willing, will come with it's own problems to solve.  The Lord is always good.
