I am so excited for this year. I have a good feeling about what’s to come.
School has started again and that means less time to write. But I am looking forward to being one step closer to finishing this business of classes and studying and exams and papers. It’s a long road ahead but I’m optimistic.
Most importantly, I am looking forward to seeing how God will continue to bless me by bringing me closer to Him. I am seeing how my heart can handle the balance of busy hard work and the quiet, sacred moments with my God. And He is teaching me to take it one day at a time, overcoming one small hill before it turns into a mountain.
I had an epiphany that my incessant worrying, stressing, calculating, planning, and fretting is not only fruitless and dangerous, it’s incredibly self-absorbed. I am learning this year to let things go, take one day at a time, put it in God’s hands, deal only with what I can control. And if my focus is on MY worries, MY life, MY plans, and MYself, then I’m probably not focused on God’s power, His promises, and His plans.
Life is so beautiful when you have the right perspective! And he’s changing me day by day to align my priorities with His goodness and grace. I can’t wait to go where He takes me and be filled with the joy of the Lord.
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

I haven’t had much free time since I came back to uni either :(, hoping I’ll find time to write something tomorrow though :)…
Philippians 4:6 ESV
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
I always find at Uni I get pretty caught up in work, but God can even support us in this aspect of our lives! Lift everything up to him 🙂
Yes! Thank you! 🙂
It’s funny, I think I actually get the best encouragement and litle lovely ponderings from/about God when I’m at school and being inundated with books and lectures and assignments, he shines through!!
