finalmente chica


hello friends. i apologize for the delay in blogging, but as i said before, keeping a blog in college is hard. So where do i start? I love it here. I love college. And I love the work that God is/has been doing. Im in a melancholy mood at the moment. Sitting outside on a blanket in a field, typing away with my Bible and journal (thank you mags)breathing in the fresh, cool, crisp autumn air that approaches, surrounded by trees of beautiful greens....this is my life. Yes, i do have homework i should be doing, but i can seem to ruin this lovely time by opening up plato. definitely a day-spoiler. no, i would rather sit here, and talk with my Jesus. Have i mentioned how wonderful He is?


You know, I've been having a tough time here. Not in the sense that you would think. Adjusting, making new friends, all of that stuff is not a problem. The problem is this: I've lived in a bubble. It's true! that calvary bubble exists! I never thought that being at a christian school would mean a testing of my faith, but alas, it does. It's interesting. People from all different walks of life have met, and we've sat around for hours (and i mean hours, like staying-up-til-5-in-the-morning hours) discussing theology and religion. At first it was really difficult. Listening to others views, and beliefs made me question my own faith. It was so hard. Is the God that i've known and served for the past four years not who i thought He was? is my view of god seriously screwed up? Who are You Lord? These questions freaked me out. Seriously. But it's cool, because through His word, God has revealed Himself to me. And although others might have a weird view of Him, doesn't mean their right. My God is alive and moving. He is personal and lovely. And I adore Him.
