Today, is gonna be a good day. I am so ready for today. Class got pushed back by half an hour so, I get to sleep a few more minutes. We have a busy day ending with Thanksgiving Dinner with my sisters and then we’re going to see the next Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay Part 1. (Which I’m totally not ready for! I’m gonna cry my eyes out when Peeta gets hurt!)
I’ve been thinking about this song today and all the beauty that today holds. (And I don’t just mean my face because we are taking hundreds of pictures today! Even though my outfit is pretty great today!)
Lord, there is a lot of uncertainty in my life right now. Like what direction my life is headed in after college, but I’m laying it all at Your feet. I want to be lost in You. I’m giving You my life. Lead me where You want me. I am getting closer and closer to the next stage and as scary as it is, I am so ready for it. I’m ready to get out there and do something. I’m ready to begin the next chapter. The more lost I became this year, the more I found You. I think I needed to let go of some of me, to find more of You. I still have things to work on. I am a work in progress. You are guiding me and giving my life new meaning. Lord, You are changing my heart this year. I am learning a lot. I am being put to the test this year. I am being pushed harder than ever. I am realizing things that I hadn’t before. I am leaning on You and trusting You in ways I haven’t done.
“I’m after Your heart. You’ve stolen mine”
So, that is my prayer today. Thank you for today. Thank you for letting me see the beauty in today. Thank you for leading me. Thank you for changing me. Thank you for opening my eyes. Thank you for the many blessings in my life. Thank you for saving me. Thank you for setting me free and taking away the chains. Thank you for being strong enough. Thank you for waking me up today with purpose. Thank you for showing me the good in the small things. I pray that I continue to see the beauty in what you gave us. I pray that I continue to grow in you. I pray I keep moving forward. I pray that while I’m scared that I don’t lose sight of you. I pray that I put my worry and stress at the feet of the cross. I pray that I focus on you. And as always I pray for my family and sorority sisters. I pray for my university. I pray for guidance for our government, church, and school leaders. I pray for protection for our troops. I pray for all of those that need you now and for those that haven’t met you yet. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
