Good things are coming. I think this quote can apply to many things in life. I’m in the middle of one of those weeks where it was bumpy, and I’m like in the middle of the ocean and I see a few big waves left, but the big one I got through without flipping over. I can see the horizon a way’s away and the sea is calm. It’s also glistening with that pretty sunlit gleam. God is so good and the moments in life that are just a tad difficult; they usually always end up in victory. I believe that has happened this week for me.
I just want to give glory to God in this . . . because He always seems to never fail me– ever. He is my every lit wave on the ocean and He’s the one holding the other boat paddle tightly guiding me and granting me my hearts desires because I’m delighting in Him. Do you ever have those moments where you say, “Good lord, how do I deserve this from you, God?” I’ll be the first to admit I’m not perfect, not EVEN close, but God loves me. He’s someone I can always lean on and never let go. Sometimes I wish He were physically there where I could rest my head on his shoulder and cry only to Him, but I know He’s here in spirit with me. The Bible is the next best thing to just read and rest your head on. I do that sometimes.
I’m still in my boat, and I’m holding onto only one boat paddle while God holds the other one. Together we will row and row and row some more . . . go through the big waves together in the ocean, then small waves until He grabs my hand in replace of the boat paddle I’m holding and we sit and just watch that beauty of a sun go down.
These past three and a half years have been quite possibly some of the most life changing years of my life. The whole college thing has changed me for the better. It’s funny how it’s all worked out. I would fight God on going here three years ago, until He actually confirmed my coming to this school through His word. It was a little scary, but I knew if I didn’t go through with it I wouldn’t be happy. It’s surreal to think by next semester I’ll be saying goodbye to this school after four long years for good. As each day passes, I am getting closer to where I really want to be. Whether it’s in the mountains, on the water, in Colorado, traveling on my own, or having new experiences. When every New Year passes I’m a year closer to adopting Hope; my future joy. These early years in life are important to me, it’s about deciding what you want to do in life, where you want to be and start making the plans to make it all happen. Swag and yolo will change one day. I guess perspectives are always changing though. I always hear how we’re not promised tomorrow. I just always figured that meant live as if today is your last; that means different things to different people everywhere though. For me, it is looking forward to the next day in hopes that I may fulfill Gods plan and will in my life. I don’t know when He’s going to take me but I sure would love the chance to take in a little gal from China one day. And you see, I think He knows that. He wants us to be happy. That is why I’m keeping hope in that dream and starting now, planning now, and securing myself now.
In the end, God will always get victory. I plan to follow His direction along the way; and if making sacrifices along the way is what I have to do, then so be it. For crying aloud, if God could sacrifice His only son Jesus, who are we not to make sacrifices throughout life right?
Don’t worry, God’s holding that other boat paddle. Just let Him do the steering.
