The Lord continues to give and bless and take care of me. First, I got a 90 on my first psychology exam (which I was sure I bombed), I was about to be a Psych major with a failing grade in a class I should be awesome in.
I have amazing friends and feel like I really am thriving here. I have ridded myself of toxic things and have began to focus on my schoolwork like never before, and it is paying off. I feel like I am making a huge mark at SMC and its only been about a month.
Today I came back to my dorm after a pretty long day-running off of 4 hours of sleep and coffee. 9AM class, studying, 12PM class, more studying. 2PM class, finally time to get a break. On my desk there was a little envelope with my name, room number, and P.O. Box number. I opened it and inside was a tiny official looking invitation: “You are invited to take part in a VIP Photo Shoot for Dear World, a life-changing program about the stories of life coming to SMC’s campus in October”. Y’all, when I say I am confused..I was so lost. I read it over and over and realized that my roommate didn’t get one, and neither did my suite mates. I got an email that explained it a little more, and basically it said “You’ve been nominated because someone believes you have an amazing story to tell.”

I’m not sure who nominated me, and I wish I did so I could give them a hug. To read that someone believes in me and my story, enough to want me to share it in front of my peers..its so humbling. There is a possibility I will share my story live and in person, on stage..that is scary. If you know me, I don’t do well with speaking in front of people. Not even a small classroom. Ask me to dance, I could do that all day in front of a million people. However, speaking..not my favorite.
Thats one of the reasons why I have this blog. I want to get my story and testimony out there-I want to inspire before I expire. I want to show how good our God is, how He can take the most broken people and change them to be SAVED. I can’t stay focused long enough to write a book, and I don’t like speaking (like I said, I am just repeating myself now). So I blog. I put my words out there in a way I love-writing.
Y’all, I can’t even fathom His love for us. For US, sinners. “I am broken but running towards you, God. You make me whole.” I am in the right place here at SMC. My praise for The Lord will be forever, because He is forever blessing me. Only He can satisfy.
Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
