...I find Peace again!

So as much as I have tried to disguise it, I have been a mess the past two weeks. Peace was not something that I could get a hold of! Well, after a week of my best friend literally having no communication with me I got a hold of myself and faced the nature of the beast... that beast being miscommunication. After a long talk everything is great again, so much has to be done but I can't wait to see what is ahead.

Also, with the whole moving thing I had two dates in my head. Aug 2nd and July 20th. I have been trying to decide which day and really praying about(as I watched my world in Niceville fall apart). Much to my disgust, I got my answer... August 2nd! Ugh, yesterday I hated the idea of it but now I am interested see what is in store for me cause I feel like another piece of me/my future is about to be revealed.

Sunday in service the main line of the sermon was "What you do in times of desperation will determine your destination." At the time I was focused on a friend and helping her in her time of desperation, but what I didn't realize was that I am in one right now. But I am on the other side of it. I am not alone in the cave of Adullam! I have gotten past that part and now God has led others who are hurting to me and I am developing my army! kinda lol. Well, that is what happened to David but you get what I mean.

Anyways I just felt like posting cause I haven't in a while.

I found peace again. The perfect ending to the worst week! Thank God!

....I am amazed

So today, I had three things happen that just truly blessed me! First of all, Matt and Rita found an apartment in Tampa! Yay! That is one less stresser (ok, well maybe not for me but still). I also talked to my roommate for the first time today! I finally got up the courage to text her and we talked for a little while and found each other on facebook! I am actually really excited to get to know her... she seems really cool!

Finally, actually I think this happened first in my day but still. Today at work I had this woman come through my line. She was a little bit bigger and had had some sort of surgery recently so she asked me to use paper bags and fill them lightly. She also needed assistance to her car. Seeing that I was in no-man's land at register 1 I of course had no bagger. Under normal circumstances her requests usually would have been an annoyance, but she was so nice about it and kept apologizing and I actually didn't mind. Anyways, as we were talking she asked me about school and stuff, and when I told her I was studying music education and missions, she went on to ask me about where I went to church. Well after the conversation had kind of died down and I was nearing the end of her order she handed me a $20 bill and made me promise that I would use it for school books and stuff! I was soooo shocked! Partly, because this complete stranger was giving me money and trusting me, but also because this past week I have been praying about my finances because I have found out that I am $5000 short of paying for my first year of college. I seriously could not believe it and I still can't! I have been on cloud nine since then because it is just like I saw God today (I know that sounds corny) lol. No, i didn't see "God" but I saw him use someone else to bless me! and it was kind of a reassurance to me that he will take care of it all!

Oh! I also am approximately 59 days away from moving! I have been working my way through Matthew, but I kind of am looking for something that will take me the rest of the time until I go to school! If I had thought about it sooner I would have read Psalms or Proverbs but its a little late for that now. haha

well, I am out for now! I hope everyone is having an amazing week despite the oil reaching our beautiful beaches :(
