at this very moment, I am PRAISING Jesus for getting me through this week. I am officially through my very first week of my college career, and what a whirlwind. I am sitting here in awe of the goodness of my Savior because I actually made it. This week has been crazy but by far one of the best weeks of my life.
this week definitely has been filled with highs and lows and LOTS of change. I have always been the type of person to despise change. I dislike everything about it. But, sometimes the only way to make sense of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance because the change is inevitable. It’s unavoidable and progress is impossible without change.
Something that I have learned is to get rid of the picture of how I “think things are supposed to be” in my head because that is what messes me up. I have to learn to let go of what I think things will be like because that would be my plan and not God’s plan. Any plan without fully seeking the will of the Lord is unfruitful. This is the journey the Lord has placed in front of me and I want Him to lead my every step. The Bible talks a lot about change, and how the Lord is constant through it all. In Matthew 24:35, it talks about how Heaven and Earth will pass away but the words of the Lord will not pass away. That’s comforting to know even with all this change there is a constant found in The Lord. In Psalms 102:27, it talks about how the Lord is the SAME forever and how His years never end. God is always there even when everything around me changes.
But, through all of the crazy change the Lord has been incredibly faithful. I’ve already made life long friendships and I have learned so much. I’ve been so blessed to be at OSU. It is a journey I am so thankful to be on. I can’t wait to see what this week and the next 1000000 weeks are going to be like.
YAY for college and blogs to get my thoughts out.
