BIG.

CONFUSING.

FUN.

SLIGHTLY INTIMIDATING.

exactly where I’m supposed to be. God just keeps confirming this. And its amazing to watch him provide for me.

So I won’t bore you all with the tedious details of my schedule, but let’s just say-its  A LOT. Even though I’m only taking 13 hours (due to an annoying mistake on the college’s part, but that’s another story) my theater classes are already proving to be a challenge. Which is great. Because I. Love. A. Challenge. I have to spend 40 hours this semester in the tech shop alone.

Speaking of theater, if you didn’t already know, its what I do. I have declared that as my major as of right now and I also plan to double major English with a concentration in creative writing. However, in the last year the Lord taught me mucho about theater and the place it has in my life. And why its uber important that I do not make it my identity, because that is reserved for the Lord. When people think of Amy I want them to think Jesus, not theater nerd.

So on that note, there were auditions last night for the first two shows of the season. Before I went, I gave it to the Lord and said if I get it, it’s because I’m supposed to be there, and if not, its because the Lord has other plans for my first two months here. So sure enough, the audition went well and yet I didn’t get cast. So I’ll be expecting something to be coming my way and I’ll keep you posted.

So there’s something I want to do with this here blog. Its recommend things I discover that I can’t live without. Whether its books, music, or whatever. I’ve discovered some of my favorite things from other people’s blogs and I want to share the love. The new book I’m all over is: Walking with God by John Eldrigdge. The book covers John’s struggle to hear God and the many intricacies surrounding this topic in such a way that it genuinely feels like you’re talking with him over coffee. Its such a rich read that its one of those books you read a few pages then just sift through all of the information with God in the secret place.

So yep, that’s my pick of the day, week, month? I don’t know how often I’ll do that. But please take the time to pick that up, even if you don’t feel like you’re struggling in that area. He covers so much more.

Peace out readers!

Hello world. Or at least the internet world.

Jeez..there’s a lot of pressure in this first post. I mean, it sets the tone for the entirety of my blogging career. So, dear readers, stay with me as I get my bearings. Perhaps I should introduce myself, then we could maybe be friends? I hope so. I’m seriously looking forward to this new adventure.

Whelp…my name is Amy. I’m 18, barely legal haha. And I recently moved to Milledgeville, Ga, because I’m going to Georgia College and State University. And when I say recently, I mean exactly two days ago.

I love Jesus with an intimate passion that claims my soul and moves me at the very core of being. He is my everything. I’ll tell you here and now that I’ve prayed about starting a blog and I believe that he has led me here.  To speak about what’s he’s about to do here. Because, ya’ll, big things are gonna happen. Revival is coming.

But more about that later. Truuusst me, we’ll talk about that plenty.

Since I’m new to this whole blogging world, I’ll probably be taking this pretty slow. Change is hard for me, and honestly I can’t name a person who genuinely 100% loves being uprooted from everything they know (…not that I’ve been feeling out of sorts lately or anything, I’m just saying). However, now that I’ve decided to deal with it head on and with the Holy Spirit’s help, I feel like I’m getting on my feet.

It’s like a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle. You know how you first turn all of the pieces over, and then you find the edge pieces, and only then can you start looking for the middle? Well this whole college experience is like the 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle of sky. Like how do you do that? Its all blue! You see these puzzles in the store and I honestly think to myself, who can sit down and do that?  Who has that kind of patience?

And a thought dropped into my head. Patience. Oh Lord, you’re funny sometimes. Could this be a colossal exercise in teaching me patience, trust maybe? I mean, obviously I’ll be in college for four years so there has to be more to learn than just patience (like theater perhaps?) but the Lord knows what he’s doing. So..I could chill out. I could relax…right?

I want to. I desperately want to. I was sitting under a tree today which is located on the huge lawn in front of my dorm. I was having my quiet time and I said to God, “Alright, I give you this year. Its yours.”  I’m going to trust him, I’m going to have patience that this is where I’m supposed to be, that its okay that sometimes that I want to run the 2 hours back to Marietta, and that he has me in the palm of his hand.

The verse that I’m clinging to is: Psalm 16:5

“Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.”

He is all I need.
