Moment #7

There are a plethora of unpublished posts in my drafts section currently, all of them detailing just how nostalgic and sad and worried and tense I've been feeling lately. I've been so fearful of going off to work for a scholarship at my Bible college's summer camp, in only eight short days. I've been really gripped with nerves, but God, as He always does, answers my fears with peace and stillness.

Tonight, my sister and I saw a friend that we met two years ago at the same Bible college, and he stopped and prayed with us about our upcoming year, and the peace of the Lord just washed over us! It's like I had forgotten why I was going in the first place, and God just reminded me and refreshed me with His truth. It was an amazing moment, and I needed it immensely.

My mom said that I would have opposition to going to Bible college, even though it was clearly God's plan for me, and she was right. There have been distractions and discouragements, but no matter: God is in this plan for my sister and cousin and I, and no matter what apprehensions I might have, it's going to be amazing. This is going to be the best year of my life, and I can't wait.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." ~ Romans 15:13

I hope you've all had a great day. Don't forget that Christ is with you, always. We need to spend so much more time with Him, devote everything we have to Him. I can't wait to see what this next year is going to hold for me. I know I can trust Him, 100%. God answers prayer.
