Homecoming Happenings

October 13, 2013 | By | No Comments

Hello Blog World!

So guess what this week was?…. Homecoming Week!!

Which means crazy madness. In a good way.

Also, guess what is also next week for me and some other students here at MNU?…… Midterms! Woohoo! 3 papers to write, and 4 midterm exams. These weeks have been hectic!

But i’ts okay! That’s what college is all about! Don’t get me wrong, there are always some super fun times here, but also, cracking down on my homework and making that a priority is essential. Oh yeah… I mean I guess that is why I am here…to get my degree…

Any who.. I want to tell you guys about some things I’ve been learning lately. I know this is a very generic lesson God has been teaching me lately, but I feel that I needed to share it with you guys! God has really been tugging at my heart to keep letting things go. To let go of the things that I worry about, whether that be big or small, and place it in His hands. I find myself over and over again making things a bigger and more stressful deal than they should be. God is definitely still in control, I know that for sure, but it is hard to see the big picture sometimes. So on the topic of this week, I definitely have let some little things get to me. But overall God is teaching me than even though I most of the time I cannot do things with my own strength, HIS strength is made perfect in MY weakness. And that is pretty awesome. I know the things I am struggling with right now, going through, and stressing out about are probably nothing compared to what other people are going through, However; I am so very thankful that my God is SO big. He is enough for us, and He wants to be enough for us. I don’t know what you guys are going through, but I hope this gives you at least some sort of hope or encouragement that God is with you always, and knows exactly where you’re at in your journey of life! :]

“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. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

-2 Corinthians 12:9-10

In His love,

p.s. Here are some pictures of cool homecoming happenings that have taken place this week!

hoe down

If you already saw this image on my Instagram, I am sorry. mainly for myself. But this is my wonderful friend Emily! For homecoming we had a hoe-down, so we all dressed up in western wear and did some square dancing, had some root beer, and ate some doughnuts! It was the bomb. There was also a very bright spotlight shining right in our faces as we were taking this picture. So naturally, I received a shadow mask on my face.

 This is Uptown Theatre, where our Homecoming banquet was held!

Steak and shake

After the homecoming banquet, some of my friends and I went to Steak ‘n Shake! It was my first time there, and I definitely had a wonderful time with these lovely friends.

Thank you for reading!
