I have been pretty quiet on here lately. Thank you work, grad school, and volunteering. This morning I was getting myself some Jesus (can I get an amen?!) and found my heart settling on these words…

“When I hear you whisper, child lift up your heard, I remember Oh God, you’re not done with me yet…”

How beautiful are these sweet words? I cannot tell you how many times I find myself both complacent and confused in this season of life. I know what my passions are, but I don’t always see how the Lord will marry my passions and my career (so that I can have things to survive, like an income. Or insurance. You know.) I don’t always know how God wants to use me, or if I am even opening myself up enough so that He can use me. I feel like grad school will never end. I feel like every boy I meet only confirms that I am losing faith in all men (stop being jerks y’all!). But then I hear gentle reminders like that and can’t help but feel a weight lifted.

You are a child of the one true king! There is no season you will enter, no valley you will fall into, no mountain top you will reach, or blind curve you will come up on that Jesus does not already know about. There is absolutely nothing that you have done or will do that can undo what He has done for you. He does not stop caring. He does not stop leading. He does not stop loving. Regardless of where you find yourself today, celebrating, suffering, or just getting by, be excited knowing that some of your best days are ahead of you.
