Finding Direction

I must admit, it’s been quite an interesting week… or weekend, or whatever. But I can only say so much. I really don’t know if that many people read this, other than a select few but I guess it’s here for those of you that are interested, or bored, or just don’t have anything better to do.

Here am I, a college senior contemplating life… imagine that? God has impacted me a lot this weekend in ways that I can’t even begin to imagine. Yet oddly enough, I am okay with it. I was reading through Philippians and happened upon this verse which just kind of struck me out like a lightning bolt out of the blue, “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” (Philippians 4:11) Do I still have questions? Yes. Will they ever be answered? I honestly can’t say. Yet even through all that, I can be content, because I know God will provide for me, even when I don’t deserve it. I was also read the following verse as well, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33, see also Psalm 37:4) Now, I don’t think that if I put God first in everything He’ll just give me whatever I want… I certainly don’t expect that. But if I seek after God, my desires will become His desires, and that to me is just truely amazing. To be so closely in tune with God that His desires become yours. That is what I want to strive for, to seek God first in everything I do, then naturally everything else should fall into place. It’s just amazing what happens when you do give everything to God, all of a sudden you know everything is going to be okay, even when you still have doubts. It’s something I wish I could really put into words…

I’ve also come to realize what amazing people God has placed in my life. My friends are just amazing and are there for me when I’m down, and are there to pick me up no matter what condition I am in. I am really undeserving to have such friends that have to put up with me, because I know I’m not simple to deal with, but I’m thankful that they are willing to give up their time… for me. I pray that I will be available to do the same for them if they ever need it. I’ve also come to realize how amazing my Dad is. I mean, I like my Dad, and I always have. Even though we didn’t always get along he really has always been there for me, and always gives up time for me even with his busy work schedule. It just astounds me sometimes…

Anyway, sorry you had to read through all of that. I just wanted to jot some of my thoughts down so I could go back and look at them at a later date so I won’t forget anything. If you did read through all of that long post… yeah sorry about that. I know it’s not very entertaining but God’s doing something… I just don’t know what yet and it has me all excited. Anyway, on to other news…

My car got hit last week. But tomorrow, I might be finally putting it into a shop so I have to deal with that and get a rental car at the same time. It’s just been interesting to deal with insurance and all that, real excitement there. Also, we (Samford Band) get to go to Georgia Tech this weekend. I’m all excited about that, except that I have to drive the truck all the way over there so I’m going to have to drag someone along to keep me company. Any volunteers? Clint might show up as well, considering that Toccoa Falls is void of any entertainment apparently. So I’ll be glad to see him at the very least.

And if you did happen to read through all of the above, congratulations, and yet I apologize again for a third time. Just let me know what you think about all of that and if you have any suggestions (verses, opinions, ect.) or at least let me know that I’m just not talking to myself all of the time!
