This Journey

So, I have embarked on a new journey and I’m so excited about it. It’s been hard and I know it will continue to be challenge as I continue but I also know that it’s not about me. I’m doing this honor the Lord because I know that my body his temple.

Anyway, I had my first weigh in today and it’s been a little crazy after a weekend in Atlanta, being at school for three days, and spending a weekend at home for friend’s wedding. But I’ve been doing the best I can and as of this afternoon, I have lost SEVEN pounds, yes, 7. I’m so excited and it just gives me the motivation to keep going.

But that has been the icing on the cake for this week of death. I’ve written papers and news releases and have finally gotten back into the swing of things. I have almost finished one seminary application and still have one more to do. I’m so excited about this stage of life but still in denial that I’m graduating from Samford in May. It can’t be time yet but then I remember how everyone and their brother is married in the near future so it has to be at least close to time.

I’m trying to absorb and take in as much as possible during this senior year, my last year in this wonderful place that has come to be home to me. Spending time with great friends who I know will be here for the long haul. But I’m looking forward to next semester and Step Sing, I got to talk to a freshman about it today and it made me even more ready for three weeks of non-stop fun and practice but trying not to think about it because I don’t want to wish this semester away.

But anyways, this journey is not the easiest one and for some reason, the Lord has called me to walk it alone and I know the only way I can do it is through His strength and His strength alone.

“Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.” 1 Thessalonians 5:24

So that being said. Join me in prayer as I continue this journey and savor the last of this sweet, sweet season of life.
