What I've Learned This Summer

Lets just say--this summer has been epic. Not all of it has been pleasant (actually, most of it hasn't been. At all...), but I mean epic in the sense "big".
I had a feeling towards the end of last semester that this summer would be one that would prepare me for the rest of my life. Maybe that's a big feeling to feel, but I just got that impression.
And boy, was I right.
He has been working on my heart hard-core this whole time. Times when I didn't even know it. Times when I didn't even expect it.
Now I look back, and see His work.
Here's what I've learned this summer:
~ My favorite color is now purple. Why? I don't know. It's completely an obsession now though.
~I really like being around people.
~ I want to go somewhere else overseas.
~ It takes a storm to create a new norm.
~ I may want to blog for the rest of my life. And I just might.
~ You have to meet people where they are.
~ You security is to be found in God and God alone.
~ Prayer can be anything.
~ Trust is easy when you understand how BIG God is and how small you are.
~ Make the choices you want to. You'll simply live happier and without regret.
~ I don't have to post every little thing I learn or feel or do or know.
There is value in thinking more about your words, whether they are said, posted on Facebook, blogged, typed or texted.
~ I continue to be overwhelmed by how much God loves me. Seriously, all the time.
