the last two weeks have been a whirlwind. I moved back into messiah and began RA training. RA training was probably the longest and most draining thing that I ever participated in. each day would start around 8am and most nights we would not return to our rooms until after 10. after a long day, there was still decorating to do.
the week of RA training exhausted me in every possible way. in the midst of that weakness, my anxiety crept in and tainted my mind with lies. I became fear stricken as I thought of the coming days.
move in day (and the night before) was the worst. I was anxious about this new chapter, but as I bounced around from room to room, I felt myself become more at ease.
the 48 hours since our first night all together have been crazy. despite all of it, I feel so blessed. God is so good and He is faithful. my heart is so full of joy tonight.
people have warned me about the fine line I walk as an RA, but I know more about myself than them. I’m excited to know these girls and to hear their stories. I’m so excited to see what God is going to do this year.
I’ve realized that I don’t have time to sweat the small stuff. God is already teaching me that I need to let things go and give Him room to work. even when things don’t go according to my plan, Gods plan is still perfect.
tonight was so wonderful and I’m so blessed.
I’m going to bed a joyful girl..
