Life Update!!!

Well, guess who is almost finished with their first semester of college! I must say, it is very weird but I have already learned a lot so far.

The biggest thing I have learned is that God is the coolest Heavenly FatherEVER. He has answered so many of my prayers and has blessed my life so much, even when He tells me no for my own benefit.

I forgot the feeling of starting over and constantly being around total strangers while being at college for the first month, I am not going to lie, it was very difficult. It can be hard for some of us (–>me<–) to open up to new people and find a great friend group. Then when school actually started, having to figure out where my classes were and who to randomly sit with was absolutely terrifying, but that’s why I love God so much because everything worked out in the end.

In my life right now, God has blessed me with an amazing group of friends, even though it was a longer processes to find them than I hoped, and the gift of singleness. You read that correctly, I said the gift of singleness, but I will get to that in a upcoming blog. I have grown up so much in the most simple ways; I make my bed in the morning (trust me, that’s shocking), I like to keep my desk and area clean (even more shocking), I have found importance in my quiet time with the Lord and picking up a good book to read, I enjoy creating goals for myself and learning outside of school, and even the importance of volunteer work. I am so thankful for what I have learned and what God has blessed me with, even when He tells me no.

Some ways that God has told me no this semester was by telling me that I did not need to be in a sorority. That was a huge pill to swallow, since it used to be a dream of mine for such a long time to be in one, but there is always a reason for God’s plan and I have trusted Him with that. God has also told me to say no towards certain relationships and to stay single in order to focus on a loving relationship with Him. He has even told me no to past and current friendships.

Overall, I have learned how amazing God is. Even during the times of Him telling me no and feeling alone while experiencing this new chapter in my life, His timing is always perfect.

No matter the chapter of life you are currently in, God has a perfect plan for you. He is constantly working in our lives, even if we can not see it or understand it right now. His timing is PERFECT and everything always works out in the end.

~Jeremiah 29:11~

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.”

{ Hey beautiful people! I haven’t posted anything in a while due to being in college, but trust me I never stopped writing. In my next few blogs, I will be posting about The Gift of Singleness, the Importance of Self-Care and possibly a upcoming Christmas Fundraiser for Persecuted Christians (but that’s a secret). }
