I'm a firm believer in saying what needs to be said.
So, here it goes.
God is saving me, daily. I have gone through a ton of crap this last year. As we all have, I'm sure. This semester, I've been dealing with a lot of death. (friends, family, etc.) It's tough. I am extremely comforted by the knowledge of heaven.
If you know me at all, I'm not the type to shove "religion" down anyone's throat. In fact, this very thing has destroyed some friendships lately. That's another post for another time.
But you know what, I love God. I believe in God. I trust in God. I may screw up and I may question/doubt, often. I'm okay with that. I'm a thinker and I want to learn more about the faith I defend.
Anyway, this just needs to be said.
God is awesome. Death or life, he is awesome. He is sovereign. I believe that. He keeps me going. When I blink and something else has gone wrong, I find evidence of Him.
Anthony. I love this guy. I mean, I really love him. He's taken me on so many "dates" I can't even count them all. When I was dealing with my break-up, he was there. When I freak out about my super deep thoughts, he's there. And just when I need him, he shows up. He's funny, too. So he gives me a break from my mellow tendencies.
And you know what? He introduced me to his family. His family is amazing. Amy and Dave are incredible. Their kids are awesome, too. I have started hanging out with them a lot, and although it's weird for me to feel close to people so quickly, they are suddenly becoming close friends.
And you know what? They introduced me to Hannah. She is awesome! I barely know her and she invited me over when I was hearing super freaky noises tonight.
And you know what? This blogging "universe," of sorts, is amazing! I have "met" some wonderfully inspiring people through this.
And you know what? I can't even name all of the people (Heather, Carolyn, family, coworkers) who have made my life so superb.
I'm happy, you guys! I'm at peace.
I can be sad and restless, too, but overall, my soul is restful.
I'm proud to say that.
So, people, thank you. Thank you for putting up with my rambling. Thank you for listening to my tangents. Thanks for letting me freak out and making me feel like it's okay. Thanks for your prayers. Thanks for your understanding.
