Whoa, it’s been a bit!

Hey guys! Sorry for the long break! School has been killer lately, and when it hasn’t been killing me, work has been. Anyway, I’m sitting at school right now.

This past week has had its ups and downs. I’ve struggled with guilt and triumphed as well. Atop a week-long fast, I come out feeling very much the same as I did before. Why is this? I am not sure. I don’t feel as sure footed right now. I need His grace. On top of how I feel, school is becoming increasingly difficult, with one essay out of the way, one left, two homework assignments and three tests this week, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I know I definitely need to stop procrastinating for one…and possibly playing Minecraft too. (Sorry, guys!)

Anyway, aside from the gloom and doom, I have some great things to be excited and thankful for. First and foremost, God still loves me, and still died for me so I wouldn’t have to stand an eternity in hell. Second, I have a complicated but great family to back me up, as well as my girlfriend who always supports me! And lastly…the Apple event is tomorrow and I am uber excited! Typical geek, I know, but oh well.

Workinnnnn

I love God. I don’t really understand why he would choose to love me, but I’m thankful that he does. Thursday night was a great one. The Gamecocks won :P, and We had an awesome encounter with God at Trifecta that night. I felt a renewing of my own spirit through His Spirit. I can’t understand why he loves me, still, but I cant believe how much he has done for me. 

Last night I had work from 6 to about 10:20. It went relatively horribly for the first hour, then everything smoothed out. Working as a server is no joke; people can be downright rude. I had a friend come in from church and he tipped me unreasonably well (Thanks Geoffrey!). Anyway, I found myself multiple times asking for God’s help to keep me sane during that shift. I love how he surprises me by making things better when i least expect it.

And today, I go into work @ 4. I’m ready for God to use me…to do something new in my life, and for some reason I feel this may stem from work. I encounter too many people there to not make a difference in someone’s life for Christ.

For those of you reading this, thanks. And may God bless you and your endeavors today. 

Godspeed!
