So, homecoming week has come and gone… and let me just say it was a blast! SO many fun memories were made; ASG did a fantastic job! Also I have a random thought I have been thinking about this last week. Although it was nice to have a bit of distraction from some of the struggles of life with all the fun events of Homecoming week… I have in the last few weeks been a little down…. But don’t worry there is HOPE! I have a quick thought I would like to share on that in a bit… but here are some pictures of a FANTASTIC Homecoming week!
We had a movie night, a hoedown, a homecoming dance, and a football game where we BEAT BAKER (if you aren’t a Pioneer you may not understand but that is a big deal around here!).
(Yes I wore my Royals jersey over my dress… I am that dedicated).
All that to say it was a crazy and busy week let me tell you!
Now thats homecoming, let me give you just a quick thought of the day and then I’m done rambling.
I have really been reading and thinking a lot about hope the last few weeks. For many reasons I have been kind of in the dumps with some personal issues but mostly with the uncertainty of life and exactly my calling. Whether you’re a Christian or not we all go through these times. And these are times that help you grow. But beyond all that I have been realizing there is hope. Some lyrics from a song, Anchor, by Hillsong go like this:
There is hope in the promise of the cross, You gave everything to save the one you love, and that hope is an anchor for my soul, my God will stand unshakeable!
Man I love that! It gives me the chills! I think when I am sad or overwhelmed sometimes I think God is surprised or He can’t handle it. But He is UNSHAKEABLE. And because of His promise of love on the cross, we can have hope! Hope that there is a God who is constant, who loves and cares, and who wants what is best for us. When everything around us seems chaotic or maybe there is a lot of hurt… remember these song lyrics! I think if we can have hope in Christ (who He is and what He has done) which coincides with trust, we can be more diligent in being patient through the trials and the pain. Just wait and see what God will do when you regain a piece of hope in Him.
What that has to do with Homecoming, or what Homecoming has to do with Hope? No one will ever know. It has just been my life the last week though
