it is well.

Tonight I am really grateful and I want to express that.

I feel as though I am the only person on campus as I sit here with my coffee and a book open to write my paper and most days I would be really upset at myself for that, but i've been thinking lately how balance isn't really a thing.
Sure, there's a level where we all need to take care of ourselves but there's also a part of me that says, well, it's not that simple. We have good days and we have bad days and sometimes days are fuller than others, but all are good, even when they're bad, because each day we have the opportunity to live our lives as witnesses to the good work that Jesus prepared far in advance for us to do and so, some days are going to be like this one and i'm going to be up late working on homework, but that is a gift because I am alive and have the promise that I am not alone.
I have life and I get to do everything as an act of worship and reverence to my God.
And that is really sweet.
Tonight, as I write this paper for my theology class, I am reflecting on how that almost didn't happen. I could have very well decided not to study theology and not to have listened to all the voices that told me to consider it.
But then that wouldn't be nearly as fun and not nearly as formative.
So though it's late and i'm all alone, it is well.
"And whatever you do,whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Colossians 3:17
