So now the countdown begins… I begin my new law program on Sunday July 9. Part of me is nervous and scared…1.) I’ll be away from my boyfriend/best friend for near about a month. I’ll still be able to see and hang out with him, but nothing beats going to sleep next to and waking up next to him. The fact that we are kind of recovering from a slip up is another big blow too….. This absence will definitely be felt and I think I am anxious about this. My family is super excited about me going to this program and I don’t want anything messing me up.
For all of my followers, those of you who still check up on my blog from time to time, I want to say this to you…..no matter what you go through in life, the calm is ALWAYS AFTER THE STORM. I know you may feel like the battle is never ending… trust me….I sometimes feel like I’m in the same rut, but however, the promises God has presented me with and the things that I know help me get through some of the toughest times in my life. I pray that you find the peace you need to heal from whatever infraction that has made its way in your life. I pray that you never fear the wonderful opportunities coming your way. I pray that you embrace every opportunity with open arms and just love those who truly love you because why? Sometimes its easier to love when people are loving you. There is one thing I have learned being 23… things don’t always come easy. People don’t always appear as they seem. The older you get, the more your preferences change and the more you lose friends close to you, but just know that all of this is ok.
I want to say this following prayer for all of you who may be struggling.
Dear Heavenly Father,
I pray that You uplift the person reading this blog. I PRAY THAT THEY FIND PEACE AND JOY AND HAPPINESS IN YOU. I pray that You allow them to walk in a spirit of favor unlike anything ever experienced before. Although I pray the same for myself, I would be selfish to not extend this prayer to anyone else. I pray that the person who is reading this knows that in order to live the life You have planned for them, they must sow seeds of joy and peace and happiness and not seeds of doubt, mistrust or any other factor that drives a wedge between them and You. God, I pray that no matter what happens through this season of 2017, I pray that you continue to work on me and the person reading this. I pray that You protect my heart and allow me to understand when things are no longer in my season anymore. I pray for discernment to know when to let things go yet I also pray for patience to wait the storm out instead of begging You to calm it before my time. The same part of this prayer is prayed for those reading this as well. God, we need you every minute of everyday and I want You continue to keep us under Your arc of safety. As your daughters and sons, this prayer I ask in Your Precious Son Jesus Christ’s name…
