Sitting in room 236

Nothing is the same.

People are constantly come in and out of my life.

I don’t know how to handle being a sophomore, yet I am loving every second of being back.

Meltdowns seem to be the new norm.

I want to go back to last year so bad.

And I need to have a reality check about what is going on.

My life, sitting in room 236

Surprise Reunion!

 

Today I decided to go to the first tennis match of the season for the Greenville girls team! They were playing in Wood River, and I thought it would be fun to surprise them! It was the greatest reunion! (: Sarah and Anna cried. Katie knew about it, so have this adorable smile on her face when I saw her, and Ava fell to the ground. It was the sweetest thing.

I realized today, that I am setting an example for them, and they look up to me… Something that I didn’t see before. I have people in my life that I look up to and that I love, but never did it cross my mind that there are people looking up to me. It was a humble reminder.

God is good. The true friendships in my life are beautiful. Amen.

Let me rediscover you.

Your spirit hovers over my waters
Your love burns longer than the sun
The skies of thunder echo you wonder
Your praises can’t be over – sung

The whole Universe is witness
To only a part of what you’ve done
So let me rediscover you
And breathe in me your life anew
Tell me of the God I never knew
Oh, let me rediscover you

You see my weakness, my pride, my blindness
You wield your power through them all
Of all the mysteries, still, the greatest to me
Is that you’re faithful when I fall

How can I say I know you
When what I know is still so small?
Let me rediscover you and breathe in me your life anew
Tell me of the God I never knew
Oh, let me rediscover you

Let me cry “holy, holy, holy”
Let me awaken to your majesty
And see a glimmer of your glory
Let me abide in you

let me rediscover you
and by your grace I’ll follow through
reveal to me the God I thought I knew

let me rediscover you
And breathe in me your life anew
Tell me of the God I never knew
And let me rediscover you

Oh, let me rediscover you
Tell me of the God I never knew
Jesus, let me rediscover you.

Follow My Passion, or not?

Speaking. Teaching. Serving. Listening. Worshipping. Praying. Seeking. Loving.

I want this to be my life. Day in and day out. I want to make Christ known to the world, and bring God’s love to all people. I have been told that I need to pick a specific major, do specific things, and eventually do a specific job. I don’t want that…. That’s the normal, that’s the pattern of this world. I want to live on the other side of that. I want to learn in many areas, do things that are odd, and have a job that allows me to switch gears….Sounds like ministry.

But…. How do I convince the people in my life who are paying for school that this is what I want to do??

My life.

To God Alone-Aaron Shust

Can You take me by the hand?
Can You use me as I am?
Break me into who You want me to be
When the time is finally right
Will You open up my eyes and show me everything You want me to see?
This life is not my own

To God alone be the Glory
To God alone be the praise
Everything I say and do
Let be all for You
The Glory is Yours alone
Yours alone

Take the offering I bring
You want more than what I sing
Can I give You every part of me?
Turn these pennies into gold
Take this life I call my own
Until I’m running after Your heart
I’m needing to let go

To God alone be the Glory
To God alone be the praise
Everything I say and do
Let be all for You
The Glory is Yours alone
Yours alone

We will rise and we will fall
But You remain after all
Your Glorious and Beautiful
Your Beautiful

To God alone be the Glory
To God alone be the praise
Everything I say and do
Let be all for You
The Glory is Yours alone
The Glory is Yours alone
Yours alone
Yours alone

These lyrics hit me this evening….I encourage you to go and listen to this song. It is so beautiful!
