It's been forever since I wrote on this. I don't even know if anyone will read it!
A lot has changed in the (almost) year and a half since my last post. I'd like to think I'm growing more and more every day and that I'm continually pressing on to become more like Christ every day. It hasn't been easy...believe me, it's been very tough for me, but I'm working so much on it.
I'm still at my amazing school, it's my third year, and I'll be graduating in a little over a year. That's a scary thought! I love college and the people I've met so much, I don't want to leave! I know God has amazing things planned out for me in the end. :)
As far as music goes, I never thought I could be even more obsessed than a few years ago...but I am! I love music more and more each day, and I have my albums I listen to every day: Emery's "The Question", and Anberlin's "New Surrender" and "Cities"...I will never, ever, ever grow tired of Anberlin! I am into everything from the light stuff like Shawn McDonald to the absolute heavy stuff like August Burns Red! I'm proud of the music collection I have and love adding to it more and more!
I'm just trying to be the best young woman I can be; a light to everyone showing Christ through my everything! I can't wait to follow Him on this path of life He has waiting for me.
This week, God has completely broke me down. He's showed me that my friends are absolutely amazing, and that we need to be there for each other and hold each other accountable. He showed me it is alright to sing as loud as I can in corporate worship, because He is an audience of One. He showed me it is quite okay to feel so moved that tears flow from my eyes. His love is unfathomable...and I am so undeserving and selfish.
All this from one night at our BSM praise service.
It has been a good week for me personally...but some of the people around me have had a pretty rough week. So be in prayer about that.
Ahh, the fresh relief of college. Category:Life Views:
I don't know how many people on here are in college, and I don't know how their experience is...but I've been thinking a lot about college, especially since the first day of my Sophomore year was today.
I absolutely LOVE my university. I go to a smaller Baptist University in Texas, and I know that this place is where God wants me to be. I have never experienced school like this...and I love it.
I've learned so much, became so independent, and have really made some great friendships. I've connected with people through life experiences, silly jokes, clubs and organizations on campus, and even through similar music tastes...which was very exciting!
College is amazing. I'm glad I got up off my butt and did something with my time, not just educational wise, but also socially. I have met so many amazing people, and my life would be completely different if I hadn't have come here.
So I hope everyone's college experience (whether you aren't there yet, you are currently in it, or you've already been there, done that) is a great one!
You know, I'm pretty obsessed. Category:Music Views:
I recently realized how obsessed I am with my iPod and just music in general. I devote so much of my mind and heart and energy and ears to it that it's insane. Now, yes, it is good, and yes, it is even better if glorifies God, but still...couldn't I be channeling some of that devotion more to God Himself than just music?
