So now that school is coming to an end and summer is right around the corner (literally four days away) so many changes are rushing my way. Now i’ll be honest before I dig into my plans for the summer and let you know that i’m not the happiest right now with all of the shifts that are completely out of my hands, but first let me explain.
About three weeks ago it was finalized that Mark will in fact be staying here at Southwestern for the summer, and I will be heading back home. I never thought Mark and I would ever have to do long distance so coming to terms with this has been a handful of a heartache, to say the least. Now I don’t want to sound completely depressed or anything because there is a part of me that knows that as much as this sucks there are some positives in the situation. We have also talked about visiting each other so I know we will be okay and make it though. It will be a rough four+ months, and The Lord knows i’ll just have to take it day by day.
Moving away from Mark has to be the biggest shift that is happening within the next few week in my life, but there are a few more things that i’d like to let you in on. I’ve started looking for a summer job so there’s that, and i’m excited to reunite with a handful of friends, that I miss terribly!
There is one goal for this summer that has been set in my heart though, and that goal is to grow. I want to experience and spend time with God like never before and give him all of me. These past semesters of school have been tough and I know for a fact that I want next year to be completely different. I want to learn to rely on the Lord for everything and continuously seek him in every area of my life, and honestly I just want to be transformed. I don’t know if any of you can identify with me, but i’m at this point of my life where i’m just sick of me. I’m ready and excited, and I know that whatever comes out of this summer will be a product of how I spend my time, and I can promise you friends that I don’t plan on wasting any of it.
That is all for today, until next time! 🙂
