alright, so i have been learning a lot. maybe not so much learning school stuff, but i have been learning from and about God.
i realized God’s word is sweet and satisfying. i have learned when someone says “this verse is in the bible” to really seek it and figure out what i think about it (not to just trust their word). i have learned to rely on God. He is always there. i have overcome something that use to be a big “flaw” of mine. i use to worry and stress over just about everything. like why did joseph not answer his phone? i bet her got in an accident. or i would stress about school stuff and tests. but really i can say that i do not worry myself sick. i really do not worry about things. and this is huge. if i ever start to feel worried or stress, i start praying and reading the bible. i have also realized that i am a physical touch kind of person. it is hard being away from my family and joseph. i can’t just be hugged whenever i want. last night i was talking and praying, and i just felt like nobody was talking back, and it made me feel alone, which caused me to want to be comforted. i think this was a test from God that i am still trying to figure out. but i ran into my suitemates’ room and asked them for hugs. it helped temporarily. i want to be able to fully rely on God, but it’s hard to not feel him.
i am going home this weekend. i was not planning on it, but my sister is really sick. she has a case of pneumonia. i told my mom i would come home if they needed me, and she told me to stay, but i am pretty sure it would be a big help if i came home. and i am glad to come home. i am coming home after the tie-dye party though! i have never tie-dyed, so i am excited! and THE OFFICE starts tonight. i am excited to be able to watch it with the people i watched it with last season. it will be a treat.
let me know what i can be praying for for you guys.
