This is one of my most favorite times of the year. EVERYTHING IS GREEN!!! I love the smell of freshly cut grass that fills the streets, the bright sun that warms my skin, and the fact that it stays light out past 7:30PM. (This makes evening walks much more enjoyable.) I love the anticipation for summer. The build up of having some time to rest, relax, reflect, replenish and most importantly to continue to grow in Christ. That’s what I am praying for this summer, and I’m so excited to see what the Lord has in store. However, right now my motivation for my school work is seeming to be much harder to find. SOLUTION: Take ones homework outside. I get so much joy from just sitting on my chair in the back yard reading my books, or studying for an upcoming exam, while of course drinking lemonade and eating my weight in frozen grapes. (Pretty sure my dad thinks the grapes disappear because, he’ll buy a big bag from Sam’s one day, and the next they are gone because I immediately put them all in the freezer. #SorryNotSorryPops) It is crazy how much more I enjoy doing my school work. This pasty body was tired of being cooped up inside and was ready for some sunlight and some warmer weather.
This season of my life leads me to reflect. As my first year of college comes to a close, and as I look back on what God has done in the past 9 months of this new chapter in my life, I am in absolute awe. Y’ALL, GOD IS GOOD AND HE IS CONSTANT!!! I’ve grown in ways I never thought possible. I’ve met people who encourage me, pray for me and hold me accountable. I’ve seen God do BIG things in the past 9 months. I’ve seen him save lost souls. I’ve seen him protect. I’ve seen him heal. I’ve seen him give, and I’ve seen him take away. I’ve seen him at work in my church. I’ve seen him at work in my school. I’ve seen him at work in my relationships. And I’ve seen him at work in my home. Ten months ago I was scared. I was worried I wasn’t going to make any new friends, I was worried I wouldn’t find a place where I could thrive. But PEOPLE, PRAYER IS POWERFUL!!! And I don’t know what you are going through, but I know Christ is Lord of our heights, our depths, our futures and our pasts. He is faithful, and I am undeserving of his love.
With love, Mica!
