(s)lacking

Hello there friends and family who care to read my inner thoughts. It’s one of those rainy days where I want to do nothing. The rain makes me feel adventurous and lazy at the same time. The smell of it takes me back to Ireland. I wish I were in a different country exploring someplace new. Sometimes I get so tired of being in the same place for so long. I feel like the world is just too big to stay so stationary.

The semester is finally over. Everyone is packing up and moving back home for the summer. Seniors are preparing for commencement this weekend. This is sort of a rough time for me. I should be joining those excited seniors. (Technically, I should have joined them 3 years ago.) Hopefully, I will only have one more semester to go and I will be done forever. I’m too old for this. I really don’t know how much longer I can deal with it.

I’ve been finding it hard to put my faith in God lately. I have had a rough month. From school issues, to boys, to roommates, to car troubles… yadda yadda. I complain too much. But I’ve been realizing lately that in all of this mess, I’ve left God out. I have barely remembered to ask for his help; for his love and support. Just knowing that He is there is a comfort to me, that I have, I admit, neglected to acknowledge recently. I’ve been so wrapped up in my own problems. So determined to make life go the way I want it to. It’s time to give it to God. His plan for my life has got to be so much better than mine.

So here’s hoping I will do just that.

Jeremiah 29:11 — For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
