I haven’t written at all this semester, which shows how crazy life has been. I always find time to write, it’s therapeutic, but I haven’t been able to. So much is developing in my life, I hardly know where to begin.
I have been around the country trying to figure out where I’ll be in school next year. Through various airports, several jet lags and working nonstop in the different time zones, I have caught a glimpse of what my future holds. By the end of this week I will decide to go to school in Orange County or Chicago. I’m very close to a decision.
This season of my life is all about closing old and opening new chapters:
- In less than one month I will perform my last percussion show of my career.
- In less than two months I will graduate from undergrad.
- In less than three months I will move to wherever I will start law school.
- In less than four months I will ride my first bike tour with Venture Expeditions, 500 miles, to raise money for International Justice Mission! (You can donate to my trip here 😉
- In less than five months I will start law school.
The Lord has been so faithful to me. I have been overwhelmed by his presence in my life and throughout this exciting journey. He has strategically placed people in my life to speak truth into me, feed me spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and encourage me when I need it most. My relationship with Christ has grown immensely through this semester, and I often can’t put into words how deeply I have experienced his grace in my life.
He has rocked me to the core, stripped baggage off my shoulders and renewed me daily. For this I am humbled, thankful and reassured. As I make my final decision on law school, which will profoundly impact the course of my life, I am confident that I am not alone.
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” (Philippians 4:4-9)
