I'm not going to bother much with a recap of the year. You know most of it by now anyway. I made new friends. I lost old friends. I made even more new friends. I cried. I laughed. I learned a lot from God and my school. In the end, here I am still alive,… Continue reading Welcome to 2018
One of the things I enjoy doing is reading back through old journals of mine. Sometimes I laugh at them just because I can be an idiot sometimes, and sometimes I cry at them because God uses previous things He has said to me or I have said to me to speak to me. I… Continue reading Wisdom from Freshman me.
"So, Elizabeth, now that you're back. How was your semester? We're all curious since you quit communicating with us." Yeah, I am so sorry about that. I'm back now. I'll be keeping in touch with everyone pretty regularly since I'm on break. I can't guarantee that'll carry on into next semester, but I'll try. Now,… Continue reading Semester Recap
I mentioned this in a previous post, but now I want to breifly expand on it. Bullet Journaling is keeping an organized planner with various spreads of your own design. It does require a little creativity, but you don't need to be good at drawing or anything at all. I find it fun because it… Continue reading Bullet Journaling
One of my most favorite things is the rain. I was jumping around in the puddles in my shoes, singing "Open the flood gates of Heaven! Let it rain!" as it continued to rain harder. When I got back to my room, I was dripping little puddles on my floor. I emptied everything out of… Continue reading Dancing in the Rain
Despite the things I've been through and the things I've put myself through, the Grace of God has been on my life, and I cannot help but love Him. There are times where God should have turned His back on me and walked away, but He didn't. He promised to never leave us, and unlike… Continue reading Look, God is good. See it. Taste it. Know it. Even if you have to look for it, God is good.
I came to college expecting so much, and I am still expecting so much. I am expecting God to move powerfully. This first week, however, was like fighting Goliath. On Thursday, last week, classes began, and my thought was, "What could possibly happen in the first week?" Let me tell you, apparently everything can happen… Continue reading My Life ft. My Stupidity
I'm not gonna lie. I began the summer stressed out expecting terrible things to happen. I had a very limited perspective and low expectations for a happy summer. Because of this, all I saw were negative things and was constantly snippy. I acted immature and irrational about a lot of things. Sometimes these emotions were… Continue reading End of Summer pt. 2
I've said it before and I'll say it again: If I had to describe summer in one word, it would be trust. Once again I find myself reminding myself to trust God. The skin on my hands are peeling from being stressed. All of my 'stuff' covers the rear window of Mother's car. Some how… Continue reading End of Summer pt. 1
I thought about posting on Monday, and I thought about it again on Tuesday, but nothing much had happened, so I thought I would wait until today. Monday night I had the opportunity of talking to my Tulsa Best Friend for a few hours. We were talking through FaceTime. It was really nice seeing her.… Continue reading Home Stretch
