I woke up later than usual. I rolled over and grabbed my Bible from by bedside bookshelf. As I sat up, I tried to figure out what I was gonna read. Having just finished Matthew, I was supposed to start reading Mark, but I really wanted more. I bowed my head and asked God what He wanted me to read then. I was impressed to go to the back to my Bible and read through my favorite verses again. I had never read through all of them together, since I had just added one or two here and there.
No, I thought. That’s kinda boring. Of course they’ll mean something to me. They always have, otherwise they wouldn’t be on that list.
But the impression wouldn’t leave, so I turned to the back of my Bible, just before you get to the maps, and began to go down the list. What I read shocked me. It was a Bible study on exactly what God had been trying to teach me the last few months. A Bible study, that was already organized, in order: wait on God, trust in God, hope in God, love in God—exactly in the order that God had taught me them. I was blown away, completely blown away. The dots had been connected at just the right time. I finally understood the lesson, and the reasons.
It’s the last full week of the semester, and the end of my freshman year. I have just one blog post left. I’m considering keeping up blogging, although I’ll have to blog elsewhere. It is astonishing what God has been doing in my life. I have learned so much this year: primarily: waiting, trusting, hoping, and loving in Him. Whether you are an incoming freshman, a parent, a sophomore, junior, or even a graduating senior, or just the friend of a student, keep the faith. Keep your eyes fixed on Him as we run this last leg of our journey home. It won’t be long and we’ll see our Savior’s face.
So finish well with me. I’ll race ya to the finish line, because family, we’re almost home. Almost home.
Until next week, Dues te abencoe ricamente y estou orando pra voces!
