Hey everyone! I just want to talk to you all about some personal growth I have had this year so far. I have been so, so busy so that is why I do not blog as much anymore- I just don’t have the time! But a lot of people have been asking me to update y’all on what is going on in my life so that is what I am going to blog about today.
So I have been in school for about a month now. Though it has been very busy and stressful at some points these past few weeks, it has honestly been really great. My classes are going well and I am enjoying getting a small taste of what college is like. I am managing all of my homework pretty well too. However, I will be pretty stressed soon because I have some group projects coming up.
I have also enjoyed playing volleyball on my school’s team. It is so much fun to get to play the sport that I love everyday. It has made life a lot more busy, but I really love it so I enjoy it so much. I am one of the older ones on the team, so I have loved being a leader to the younger girls on the team.
I am taking a class right now where I am making my own Study Bible. It is so enjoyable to be creative and worship God while I am doing it. With all the stressful events going on in my life, sitting down to work on my Bible at the end of a tiring day is a highlight for sure. It helps me calm down, unwind, and really focus on what is important.
The final thing that has been going on in my life has to do with Bryce. He called me last Friday! I was so happy and it made my day. It is crazy how two people can work out a relationship if they really love each other. So the phone call was a highlight to me. Sadly, his graduation date isn’t actually until October 12th, so I won’t be seeing him for another month. That really bummed me out! I just seriously want to see him so badly haha. The only thing getting me through not having Bryce here is Jesus. Though I love him so much, Jesus is the one who can truly satisfy our hearts.
Without God, I would be so negative and lost right now in life. Instead, I choose joy. I choose joy because I am so extensively blessed. I have amazing friends, a great family, I am getting an education, and I have a boyfriend who is so selfless that he gave up his life here to go serve his country. I thank God for these blessings everyday. I thank him for the little blessings too. Iced coffee to get me through the day. Belly aching laughs with my friends. A phone call. A good grade on a quiz. The little blessings get me though the day, while the big blessings get me through my life.
God is so good. I hope you will all rest in that fact this week. Please be praying for me and be praying for Bryce! Also remember to live your best lives while ya still got em!- Cami 🙂
