Sitting alone in my dorm room after some serious noshing at Coldstone's with fellow PR peeps. Hearing sounds of The Eddy drifting through my windows. Attempting to do some homework before embarking on a Family Guy/Modern Family marathon. Feeling blessed by God.

This is Thursday night.

I love going through old playlists and finding awesome songs. This is one of them.

It's a cover because I couldn't find a good video on YouTube... but this girl is pretty talented too :)

"And if our God is for us..."

School is in full swing. Working 20+ hours a week and having only 14 units is definitely a change of pace. More work, less school? woah! Sometimes it's discouraging but I know it's a great opportunity, even if it does leave me broke. There are times when I feel down; last week I just had this apathy and lethargy to life, didn't really care about anything which was scary. And this week I was kind of in a haze, working like a machine and still not caring. But God is good and He still speaks to me and helps me.

Today in my devotional I was reading Acts 8:25-32 which is weird because I had to read the same passage yesterday. Basically what the Scripture said was "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us..." "But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience..." "For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us..." I was so encouraged, knowing that this present 'trial' is just for now, not even a long-standing one, and I should receive it in patience and with thanksgiving. Though I don't know what to pray for exactly [except tons of patience and perseverance], the Spirit knows.

When I pray, I often find myself either quoting Scripture or grabbing relevant lyrics from worship songs. I don't think of specific ones, they just come to me as I have a need. This past week, I've been singing/praying: "You make all things, work together for my good..." and "if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us, who can stand against us?" Just reminding myself of His promise to His children I guess. Anyway, I was reading Acts, and sure enough, these verses came up: "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good" and "If God is for us, who can be against us?" I was seeking encouragement and strength from God and He sent it to me in the form of my devotion! I LOVE that. I feel so alone out at work, both in faith and just in self. I feel tired. Wah wah wah. And even though I have NO RIGHT to be complaining about... anything, really, God has reached out to me and loved me and patiently reminded me of His promises and has shown me direction as to how I should be handling the situation.

God is so good. I just love how He takes the time, as the creator of the universe and everything that's in it, to reach out and actually spend time teaching us about life and helping us personally get through it all.

Happy Thursday! We're almost to the weekend.
