there’s a lot happening in the hustle and bustle of life i am not even sure where to begin. i can’t believe how incredibly fast this semester is flying by! (time you must slow down really, please!) i am beginning to get rather anxious and feeling sad about the passing of time that i am experiencing in this place i have come to love so, so dearly.
considering there is so much going on, one important thing i’ve learned is that i am lost without a list. whether it’s a to-do list, a brain storming list, packing list, grocery list, etc you get the picture…i’m a planner. i enjoy having things planned out and giving myself more of an idea of all the responsibilities i’ve yet to complete then i am able to cross it off and feel that much more accomplished about what’s been done.
so there’s school work, practicing, getting the LWML college group started up, practicing, composing, writing, corresponding, more practicing, figuring out the plan for Haiti, sending letters to LWML groups, getting the soup dinner plan all sorted out, practicing yet some more, rehearsals to lead, getting my ducks in a row for being gone the next two weekends and not feeling behind when i return…
so yes, lists are helpful…but nothing that i write on a list or check off really matters in the end. lists help guide me through what seems are the most pressing issues in my life but i’m thankful to God to know I am totally lost without HIM leading and speaking to me in my life. without HIM i have nothing to fear. He alone is the only one in my life that strengthens me to get all i have to get done, completed. He is my sole helper in all of life. Soli Deo Gloria!
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” -Isaiah 41:10
