Many of you know that I started this blog when I was away for my semester in Peru, and even then I wasn’t the most frequent of bloggers but I have decided that I would like to continue this blog and share some thoughts with all of you.
Since being back I have been faced with challenges, changes, and constant activity; not all of which were bad. But most of all I have been again blown away by the goodness of God. For Lent I have decided to write down things I am thankful for at the end of each day. For the first day of lent I wrote down one thing, and that number increases with every day that Lent is. So for the 40 days, on that last day I will write down 40 things I am thankful for in that day. It has been a really good excursive. I have had my eyes opened to how God has answered my prayers even in the small things like more time to just be home in my room, the very next day my internship ended early giving me precisely that.
God is incredible! People can chock things up to chance, to luck, to fate, but I have a hard time believing that it is by luck that I am given exactly what I need, that I receive a call from a friend at exactly the moment I needed it most. I have a God that cares about me, that looks after me, and that is invested in my life. And so do you. You may not know him personally but he knows you and is waiting to welcome you in to his embrace and that is a wondrously hospitable God.
So I encourage you to keep your eyes up, don’t allow your eyes to become heavy with sadness or doubt but allow them to be light and lifted high in thankfulness and praise. Even on those days that seem to never end, I guarantee you that He is there all you have to do is seek… and you will find.
