Things are going to be different and that's okay.

Already, this year is looking so different to me from what I expected or wanted it to look like and I have times where it really gets me down and honestly, sometimes I wonder why that is, what I could be doing differently or even if I should be worrying. But then, when I spend time really getting into my classes (I'm taking some pretty cool ones) and deeper into knowledge on Christian Doctrine and Reconciliation, those emotions fall away. God whispers to me that it's going to be okay, that I am His daughter and that His plans for me are now, right this moment, even as I study and learn more about Him. That's he's got me in His arms and that it's not the end of the world if things are different. And you know what? That's all I need. Thank you Lord for Your comfort, for the way You made me and for my story, that even now, You are working in. May my heart and soul be ever after You.

Something in the midst.

I sense God doing something in me, recreating me, whispering to me, reminding me of my identity, not only in Him but also my identity as a person of color. It's scary and I don't know exactly what it means but it's something different, and beautiful.

There is something in the midst.

Today was a really good day.

Like, really, really, good.

It started off with nostalgia and reminiscing on years past, as I ended RA duty in my old home and dorm, but not in a sad depressing way, but more of a "I'm really thankful that I shared that year with those people" kind of way.

Later, I went back to my dorm where I got to hangout with a bunch of cool girls that I'm privileged to call friends, not just residents.

THEN, I cleaned my room! Guys, I cleaned! (*celebrate*) It's gotten so bad around here lately and it really, really, needed to be done. Needless to say, I can now sleep a little better tonight.

After that, I went to Starbucks for some solid study time, got some reading done and then sent out and responded to e-mails.

FINALLY, as if that wasn't already good enough, I stepped outside of my comfort zone and spent time with some friends and strangers at a friend's gathering. It was a night full of worship and fellowship and it was exactly what I needed, at exactly the time I needed it.

It goes without saying, then, that I am super grateful for this weekend. Though I didn't get as much homework as I wanted done, this weekend was life-giving, and that is a blessing.

Thanking Jesus for this time tonight.

I hope your weekend was great as well!

Third Year} First East

I'm here! I'm here!! I still can't believe it. So far this year has been filled with late nights doing each other's nails, lots of YouTube videos and ordering in. These women are beautiful and precious to The Lord and I can't wait to see how he unveils the ways in which I'm to love and be loved by them this year. It's gonna be a good one, I can feel it.
