By the Grace of God -Katy Perry
Right now I have a million things on my to-do list, but procrastinating a little more to write this blog post is what I am choosing to do instead.
Can I just say what a crazy year I am having. Socially, it is wonderful and I am having the time of my life with my roommates. Everything else though? Not so hot.
I am in my last year of college, CRAZY! While I am so excited that I am almost done, it has been one rough and tough year. I hope that when I look back at this year, I can look back with a big sigh of relief. One that says, I made it. I know that looking back I will know I only made it by the grace of God.
Literally, I don’t know what God is doing in my life, but I do know I am in the middle of the transition. I am in the middle of the part that if I knew what it would be like, I do not think I would have agreed to be here. I also know that the worst is probably not over. I just hope, looking back on this year that I am grateful for everything I have experienced.
Right now, I have a lot of hope. I think it’s the feeling of coming out from the desert and starting to feel wisps of cool air and moisture on my skin. I’m not swimming in the ocean, but I am starting to smell the salt water from where I am. I am starting to feel God’s presence again, and I know that he is reminding me of who I am and my identity in him. For awhile I had been almost hiding, and avoiding him. I kept feeling like I was failing and that I would rather just avoid him all together. Yet he keeps reminding me of his infinite love and his incredible grace and mercy for me.
So here is to the incredible journey that I am on. Here is to the day that I will look back on today, this year, this whole college thing and thank God for what he did. I will keep praying and holding on, and keep trying to enjoy the ride while I am at it.
