Well, friends. It's been a little while. I really haven't had the opportunity to breathe it feels, let alone take time to write for you...and perhaps myself. But here I am now. Let's go.
The first week of college has come and gone, and I'm having mixed feelings about it quite honestly. I've met some incredible people, and I just know that these formulating friendships will amount to something. And for that, I'm thankful.
So many changes have happened this past week, and I'm still trying to understand why. It's been a difficult week, and very trying, but there's one thing I'm sure of: God's consistency. How beautiful.
Sitting here now reflecting on this last week I realize how blind I was to Jesus despite the fact that He was standing by my side. Always with me. Heck, He even went with me to the wrong math class early Monday morning. He never leaves. Never abandons. Wonderful.
The idea of serving a Jesus that never alienates Himself from us is truly a hard concept to grasp. At least for me. There were plenty of times this week when I felt so lost and separated from everything that I had once known. Goodbye's were exchanged. And it is my ultimate hope that one day I can share a 'hello' with them again. And as I'm sitting here, I remember a time when a good friend once told me that life should not be a matter of "what if?" but, "what now?"
Friends, our Jesus is an affectionate Savior and His will is completely perfect. Our human perception and definition of the word 'perfect' I believe hardly comes close to just how beautifully perfect He and His will are. And always will be.
If there's one thing you get from reading this, let it be this: our God is absolutely PERFECT.
Be strong, friends. Afterall, the war we're fighting has already been won.
