why its good to be back. with senior year activities, family, friends, and church its been hard to get time to write on tumblr. now that its summer and that i got a new laptop..you’ll definitely be seeing more of me on here :]
SO WHAT’S NEW?
well I’m glad you asked…considering that its July 2nd and I leave for college in Massachusetts on August 16th you could imagine how I feel the need to prepare mentally, emotionally, and physically for the BIG change coming up. Moving to the opposite side of the country is going to be a hard one-full of growth, independence, new friends, new enviornment, and of course the WEATHER. Life is going to get a little crazy starting August 19th…move in day. Now of course I am super stoked about the new life i will experience there at Gordon but its really hard to leave your comfort zone. Mine is the irvine “bubble”. I’ve lived here my whole life. My family is here. My friends are here. My life is here. Everyone who i love and care about is either in this so called “bubble” or just a short one hour away. I’ve got the beach, the mountains, the city just a car ride away. In Massachusetts I have all these geographical places around me however there is just a few things missing-my family, my friends. I will be moving there knowing no one. The only thing that keeps me wanting to go there is GOD. I really feel that I am following Him there to Gordon. I don’t know exactly why He wants me there or for what purposes, all that I know is that HE WANTS ME THERE. And ask any believer-you want to be where God wants you to be because in the end God knows best and I trust Him with my life so why not move across the country, why not leave my family and friends, why not follow His will and plans for my life. When there were men wanting to follow Jesus, Jesus did not deny them but He did say come with me right away. However the men wanted to say goodbye to their families and friends. So they didn’t follow Him because they didn’t want to leave without saying goodbye. To me I could understand the men-they wanted to go follow Jesus but they were too tied down to their friends and family that they chose not to obey Jesus when He said you must come follow me there is no time to say your goodbyes. I truly believe that God wants me to take His hand and follow Him there :] with all the goodbyes of course…thank GOD!
what is faith without action? hebrews 11 does a great explanation of what true faith is.
in the end let go and let God.
