A lot has happened since my last post, which is to be expected, seeing as it has been so long ago. This particular blog will mostly be one of updates. Updating is a part of everyday life these days. Phones, laptops, iPads, and countless other technologies are constantly updating to the newest software. Getting constant downloads, they stay current and up to date. When it comes to humans, there should be constant download as well. Continued learning, adapting, and growing in knowledge and wisdom. At least, that is the ideal situation anyway.
As believers we should be continually updating and growing in knowledge and wisdom from our Lord. As Jesus stated that He is the Vine, we are to be branches, gaining our nutrients from Him alone. It would be ridiculous to think that a branch could simply fall off a tree and still flourish. If that actually does happen, that branch dies, period. Likewise, we can be nothing apart from Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. (I didn’t have that in mind to say as I sat down moments ago to write this, but it just came to me, so perhaps I was meant to say it.)
So anyway, a lot has happened. I’ve probably grown more spiritually in the past few weeks than I have in the past few months. Too much to go into here, but I may write about it someday. I also finished my first year of college, which I enjoyed much more than I originally thought I would. When I began, my goal was to go to Nursing school, and become a Registered Nurse, and work in Pediatrics. I had gotten all of my prerequisites done and was all ready to start this coming fall of 2019. However, I began having doubts, and ultimately decided not to proceed with the program. Ultimately, it just didn’t seem like the best fit for me. Now I plan on getting a degree in Communications, and thankfully this previous year of school can be applied since it was mostly general education classes. I’m also working now. Night shift. Fast food. It does keep my days open though, so that’s why I went with it.
I am learning more and more how to balance this crazy dream called life. I have written about balance before, and how it can be difficult. I feel like I’m finally getting a grasp of what that truly means. Keeping Christ at the center of what I do is the most vital aspect. Learning to be both Mary and Martha. Sitting at the feet of Jesus, worshiping, spending quality time, and learning from Him like Mary did. Like Martha, being a hard worker, and doing what He has called us to do. I believe we are supposed to be the same at home as we are at church, as we are at school, as we are at work. It’s having that relationship with the Lord, not religion with its dos and don’ts. When we truly know Him, we will want to do those things. I really don’t want to go into anything to detailed here, as I hope to write in detail of certain topics later on.
