Wow, it's been awhile...
Hey everyone, it’s been about a year since I’ve written and in case you can’t tell I am really really bad at writing and keeping up with this but that’s okay because I am going to try this again. Plus! I’ve had a lot of change in my life lately that I really would like to share with everyone because it’s honestly so amazing.
As most everyone knows, I moved on Wednesday. I start college classes at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor on Monday! This has been a really hard journey to get here if I am just speaking honestly and from the heart. I didn’t even know if I would be able to come here since I didn’t get accepted until February and also it’s a very expensive private school. I have been praying so much and I was blessed with such wonderful friends and family who have also been praying for me. It’s hard y’all, but I made it.
I got here on Wednesday and instantly felt so nervous and alone and I cried. Like, a lot y’all I sobbed. I asked why God would lead me away from my home and my family. The next night I called Noah and my mom crying my eyes out, just horribly home sick. However, after crying for awhile (okay yeah more than awhile. It’s fine y’all), and after talking with them suddenly I felt physically lighter. My wonderful roommate, Isabelle came back and we talked for hours about everything from boys to our relationship with Jesus. I woke up on Friday morning and literally felt like a new person, y’all. Never before have I felt so new and actually felt myself being made new in Christ every day. Then it clicked.
I am here for a purpose. God has a purpose for my life and I have to stop questioning that. I went to a place not very far from home with not really any idea of where my life is going or what I am doing, but I am following God and that’s the single most important thing I have learned how to do. God is going to lead you to dark and scary places and it is because you are a light. We as Christians are meant to be a light just as Christ was. Being a Christian literally means to be Christ like. THAT is what I am here for, and let me tell y’all, I am so excited. I don’t know where I am going but I am excited to find out!
Thank you for reading and hopefully I will get better about posting and writing! God Bless!
