Hey! It's been a long time. And that's primarily my fault, so let's just get to it.
I have so much to say, but not that much time, so let me start with this. First off, to the 100+ unique visitors who keep coming back every week, I just want to say thank you. You all are amazing, and I can't thank you enough for all of the support. You all are really why I do this, thank you so much.
Also, I'm sorry for taking this long to post. It's been over half a month since my last post on Taking Advantage (I linked it just in case you really didn't feel like scrolling down to find it, you're welcome 😉). I've just been incredibly busy lately, I recently got hired to work at Mathnasium (I'm at the very bottom) so I've been working. And I started school the week after my last post, so I've been doing that too. Not to mention I've been working on these college applications (fun, right?) and I'm really trying to get those done. I wish I was farther along in the process, I'm just trying to do things as best as I can. These essays take time, so if you're in my position now as a senior, or if you will be in a couple of years, please remember this: don't procrastinate. It'll only hurt you. Start early, and do the best that you can. You'll be glad you did! 😉
Oh, and one last thing before I get back to my crazily busy life. I started my journal today, and when I was writing I felt like I was getting all of these feelings out of my head and onto the pages. It felt so relieving to get everything out, to really think about life, and to reflect. I highly recommend that you journal if you ever have feelings to get out, it really helps. Also, it's really interesting to notice how, with time, your perspective on certain things changes. With enough time, sometimes even our personalities change. So, a journal is cool because you can track how you change as a person over time. So yeah, I'll be doing that. We'll see where that goes.
Once again, I apologize for the delay. I've been working, but I wanted to make sure I made time for this. I'll be back with the inspirational and motivational stuff in a couple of weeks when this college app season concludes, but in the meantime, please pray with me and for me as I go through this process. Also, please pray for those suffering from the devastating hurricane. They need our prayers too. Lastly, pray for all of God's people. I pray for encouragement to those struggling in spiritual fights for their lives, may God give you the strength to overcome. Until next time, God bless, and don't forget to smile! 😉
12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
With every day comes something new. Or, I guess I should say somethings. Every sunrise brings with it a fresh 24 hours of life. In Lamentations chapter 3 (from the Bible 😉) Jeremiah talks about how God's mercies are new every day. His goodness, and His kindness and His blessings are new in our lives, every day! How cool is that?
I don't know all that God has in store for tomorrow. We don't know the opportunities we'll come across, the people we'll meet, and the memories we'll make. But, I do know this: God has new mercies for tomorrow. And, since we all can choose how to live our lives, I choose to take advantage of all that God has for me. By trusting in Him every day, I can take advantage of all that he has in store for my life. Don't miss out on God's plan for your life. Take advantage of every day!
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
