summer seventeen was not my ideal summer… by far. here is a little bit of how it went,
basketball,hammocking,the best week (reach), turned 15!!, spent some quality time with one of my best friends, so far so good right?? then BAM i was hit with a situation where I was so heartbroken,confused,sad,angry and didn’t know what the right thing to do was all in one. however, since life doesn’t pause just because you’re going through something i continued on with softball and then was fortunate enough to go on an intercity mission trip to work with kids and there i was reminded that those kids go through struggles everyday that I will never have to face. came back home with eyes open wide and a heart full of love. not long after I got back I went through another heartbreak but, during that time I came across the verse…
Nehemiah 8:10 – “Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
I was reminded of whom I get my strength from and that he always remains.
I finished out the summer with the office, softball, watching some baseball & making memories with my best friend before her senior year (brb i’m crying)
although, my summer was not “ideal” I am still so blessed & thankful for the good memories and lessons learned from the bad & the fact that he is still forgiving, I am still loved and saved because of God sending his Son for us and Christ willing to do so.
“look at school as an opportunity to influence someone’s life & spread some Jesus, not as a burden” – from a lesson I heard a couple weeks ago.
praying for an amazing school year, aubs 🙂
