Week 5

January 29th- Gus and I flew back to college today. It was bittersweet because even though we're ready to finish the school year, it was hard to leave our families. We had a fun flight, we just studied and did homework the whole time.

January 30th- Back at school, back to school consuming my life.

January 31st- Growing up in Florida, I never really got to see the seasons changing. Now that I've experienced it, I always look forward to the next season! There's something beautiful about winter and the bare trees-- I love it so much.

February 1st- I can't believe it's already February! Time is flying by. As hard as classes are every day, I pass by these beautiful flowers every time I walk to the cafeteria. For the past 2 days they've caught my eye and remind me that we can find beauty in everything.

February 2nd- Today was rough. Classes are started to get extremely stressful and I have been continuing to have migraines. (I've had them for a couple months now on a weekly basis--prayers are appreciated). Gus bought me and my friends some chocolate to help us study. He's a sweetheart.

February 3rd- Studying isn't all that bad when you've got your best friend by your side.

February 4th- It's Saturday and I have a microbiology test on Monday. You want to know what that means? Waking up at 6:30 on a Saturday morning to go to Panera from 7:30am-8:30pm to study with a few of my friends till our brains feel like jello. Gus came around dinner time to "study." You know what that entails? Sitting on a big comfy chair in Panera, pretending to study, and actually sleeping--- doing all of this while looking like a creeper. What a rough life;)

This week is going to be crazy. I’m so thankful that I’m finally starting to feel better– especially considering I have 3 tests tomorrow, 2 projects due this week, and 5 quizzes over the course of this week. It’s going to be busy for sure! It’s amazing to know that I can cast all my cares upon God because He cares about me. Is this week going to be hard? YES. It’s revealing my weaknesses already. However, it’s also revealing the strength of my Savior and the fact that when I’m weak, He makes me strong. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has a difficult week ahead. In fact, I’m positive there are so many people who are facing weeks ahead that will be way more difficult than mine. If that’s where you’re at, take pleasure in knowing that God can use our human weaknesses and difficult times to bringĀ  glory to Himself. The will of God will not take you where His grace cannot keep you. Cast your worries at the foot of the cross.

2 Corinthians 12:9 “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
