A change of the most glorious kind

Hey everyone!

So here I am in Graden Valley, Texas at the Honor Academy. I am sitting in the cafeteria and I am just so still in my spirit.

In the past 3 days (which have been SO packed it feels like 10 days!) I have already grown so much in my relationship with the Lord, I wish y'all could see my face, I think I'm glowing :)

God has something so BIG planned for me, I'm not sure what it is but I don't need to know either! SO my heart's cry this year is to be completely broken by God, to the point where my every action and deed reflects Him and all the glory is His and that I rely FULLY on Him, for my everything. Every breath, every thought, every tear, every word, every step, EVERYTHING.

I love you all and I will update when I have time, (by the way my roommates are awesome!) it may not be until Saturday.

Just for the record

Just for the record...

There are some words that when put in perfect order feel like knives in your heart

i will miss you
I never want to say these words again or hear them.
Yet this is just the begining
They say my life has just begun
I feel like I'm dying

Dreaming, Dancing, Drifting

In 2 days I will get on a plane at 6am and move to Texas and I couldn't be more excited. :)

Some might call this denial...
but I call it dreaming.
Dreaming of all the things I have not seen
Dreaming of the adventure that awaits me
Dreaming of the person I will become
Dreaming of the God I will fall in love with
Dreaming of the unknown
Dancing for joy
Dancing in the rain
Dancing to wind chimes
Dancing for my Jesus
Drifting away from people
I thought it would be harder
Yet I'm finding I'm at peace
This is a part of my life
I have already grieved
Now all the drifting I will do
Is drifting towards my dreams
Daring to dance
Daring to dream
Daring to drift
Daring to leap
Daring to let go
Daring to be vunerable
Daring to start over
Daring to follow God
Daring to answer the Call
Daring to GO

As I Lay Here

"I'm so glad you're my best friend"

Her words pierced the silent room

We watched The Passion of the Christ earlier that day.

"Greater love has no one than this,
that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
Lay down my life...
He laid down His life for me
Lay down my life...
Pierced for my transgressions
Lay down my life...
He calls me Friend
Lay down my life...
She calls me Best Friend

Sleeping peacefully next to me was my best friend. She lays down her life for me. She invests in me, her time, talents, treasures, she shares it all with me. She sacrifices her needs/wants/desires to spend time with me-daily. Whether its a phone call, text message or actual face time.

Sometimes I am so selfish.
So unworthy
So ungrateful
Sometimes I forget all the good
all the laughter
all the joy
the memories
and the love
I have been shown.

A best friend:
-makes time for you
-laughs when you have one shoe on backwards
-touches you (back rubs and amazing hugs)
-laughs when you both get her age wrong
-goes on walks with you just because
-doesn't let anything get in the way of your friendship
-breaks down your walls
-asks you the hard questions
-prays with you
-gives of themselves
-loves you
-lays down their life for you

Everyday She looks more like Jesus.
