I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post! I have seriously been so busy, I almost forgot I had a blog! I have to give sincere thanks to my friends and readers who put a sista in check-THANK YOU! Knowing that you all noticed my lack of posting really warms my heart! My prayer in the midst of life’s busyness is to continue to post on my blog as regularly as possible. It’s not only good for me, but I know that other people learn from my struggles and successes as well; and all praise goes to our Father for that!
So here is what’s been going on:
-Started teaching at a new school this year and I love it! I am working 5X as hard this year and I haven’t ever been happier. I am also coaching Varsity Volleyball and sponsoring the sorority at the school, so my work day is literally never over! I am doing work today (Saturday) and it’s a blessing to know God has allowed to impact these young lives, so I won’t complain! Plus, I am having a lot of fun! The school I taught at last year is a far cry from the new one I am at this year. PRAISE GOD for answering prayers!
-2nd year of graduate school starts Monday and I am nervous about taking 3 classes in addition to all that is going on with work and church. I am taking Hebrew this semester too….which scared me to the core! Thank God I have a friend who is going to help me study and learn the language; he is going to prove to be an angel this semester!
– God has still blessed me and allowed me to be a part of the worship team at Hope Church. I can’t express how exciting this has been, and how much God has allowed me to grow from this experience. Growth is painful, and humbling, and messy, but God has truly stretched me to a point I have prayed to be at. I have SO much more to learn, so much more to repent from, so much more to grow. But, I am truly seeing how all of this is a process…and I am learning to respect and love that process more each day.
– I had to prune some activities from my life that I loved it. I made tough and painful decision, but they were healthy decision. If it was up to me, I would try to be at numerous places all at once, but we all know that’s unhealthy and impossible! I am so thankful for the Holy Spirt putting me in check on a daily basis (even if I don’t listen all the time).
– I feel the loss of a very special person in my life, and as I go through this season without that person, I am in prayer that God does the work that needs to be done about that whole situation. Praying for healing, praying for wisdom, and praying for patience. I just want to have faith that what I see with my physical eyes doesn’t effect what I know with my spiritual mind!
And finally, I will be 27 tomorrow (Aug 22) and I can’t believe this is happening! I am excited to share in my next post the many things I learned during 26, and the many things I am believing for during 27.
I thank God for life, love, and the ability to learn more each and every day!
