Three weeks of college. The most fun I’ve ever had. Lots of laughter. Hours and hours of beach volleyball. Walking/running an average of 7 miles a day. Two crying episodes—one happy, and one not so happy. Nights spent wandering around campus in the dark or singing on the top of a parking garage.
I am having the time of my life—but I have also experienced some of the hardest moments ever. In the hills and valleys, in the ups and downs, one thing remains steady through it all—GOD IS WITH ME. He loves me and cares for me. He blesses me with new friends all the time. He gives me deep conversations and spiritual nourishment for my soul. He comforts me when I’m sad and lifts me up when I don’t feel like I can continue on.
Life is HARD…and college is no exception. But I know that if God is there, something great can happen. And if God is there, whatever happens is great. (thanks, dad, for the quote)
So go out there. Go into the world and LIVE. Live your life, content with the truth that one thing—and one thing only—remains. GOD IS WITH YOU. You don’t have to worry about what the future may hold, because he holds it all. Yesterday, today, tomorrow, and forever—GOD IS WITH YOU. If you’re online, in person, at home, at school…God is with you. If you’re thriving or barely surviving, God is with you. And he loves you more than you will ever know. Rest in that peace today, knowing that everything else will fall into place when you lean into God. JUST BREATHE. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. HE IS WITH YOU.
