I recieved Jesus Calling for Christmas, a daily devotional, and have been majorly slacking on keeping up with it. Tonight, I decided to catch up so I can start my day the right way from now on.
Of all the passages I read for January, January 6th caught my eye. It says:
“I am able to do far beyond all that you ask or imagine. Come to Me with positive expectations, knowing that there is no limit to what I can accomplish. Ask My Spirit to control your mind, so that you can think great thoughts of Me. Do not be discouraged by the fact that many of your prayers are yet unanswered. Time is a trainer, teaching you to wait upon Me, to trust Me in the dark. The more extreme your circumstances, the more liked you are to see My Power and Glory at work in the situation. Instead of letting difficulties draw you into worrying, try to view them as settling the scene for My glorious intervention. Keep your eyes and your mind wide open to all that I am doing in your life.”
This passage is really relevant in my life right now. I am currently going through training as a Young Life leader and I’m not exactly sure if I’m called to it, yet. Pray for me!
I’ve been really inspired lately. I’ve also been very happy and dare I say, content? I think it has something to do with my sudden rush of inspiration to write. Here’s the problem? I’m so inspired that I don’t even know where to start. I could start with how Silver Linings Playbook has drastically changed me, because it is SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MOVIE! Honestly, I could go on for hours on how amazing I think Silver Linings Playbook is.
I could also go on about how beautiful of a show LOST is. I’m watching it for the third time through and it is even more beautiful than I thought before. I love the relationships and the characters. I truly don’t know if another show will ever compare to the genius of LOST.
I’m also really happy! Of course, my life is by no means where I want to be, but this semester has been so much better so far. I really think I’m starting to love Auburn.
I’m thinking of a new direction to take my blog in. This blog has kind of served as a whiny, diary of mine and I don’t want it to be like that anymore. Stay tuned for some awesome updates. (I’m pretty sure they won’t be awesome, but I’m trying here y’all!)
and with that, I would like to leave you with this quote from Silver Linings Playbook cause it’s kind of awesome.
“This is what I believe to be true…you have to do everything you can, you have to work your hardest. If you stay positive, you have a shot at a silver lining.” -Pat, Silver Linings Playbook
My break has been wonderful. The only downside is that it’s coming to an end. I have one day left in Birmingham. A part of me, a big part of me, just wants to pack up and move to Birmingham but I know that is just stupid because I would honestly be miserable at some point.
I am excited for this upcoming semster and hope that me and Auburn finally click. I felt it coming on before I left Auburn but after spending 5 weeks at home I’m not sure how I’m going to feel when I get there.
I’m going to miss my family so much and my sweet doggy.
I’m also going to miss my friends so much. Why do we all have to be separated? A part of me is literally missing without them. I wish life was fair and perfect and we all were together more. But, c’est la vie.
Of course, I’ll miss Newks soooooOOO much. As always. I can never wait to go back. I think being absent from Newks is what makes my heart fonder. :)
Until next time
