Haha oh goodness.. I can’t believe school starts in less than a week. T.T. After retrieving my schedule for the upcoming year, I went through all the AP/SAT books that our family just happens to have and this year I’m going to be needing many of them.. The more I thought about it .. The more stressed I became. I felt terrified of school.. scared that this year would be too much for me to handle.. I decided to flip through my Bible just to see if it would be of any help. and Wow. This was the verse I just happened to stumble upon:
Deuteronomy 31: 6
Be Strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
After reading that, I realized… who am I to worry? God would never present me with anything I can’t handle. The Lord of the universe is My God and He’ll never leave me. Remember that. Our awesome awesome God already has a plan for us. We just need to be strong and trust Him. He’ll always be by our side. A to the men. hehe.
Come at me life. I got God on my side. hehe :)
You are more than the choices that you’ve made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You’ve been remade.
'Cause this is not about what you've done,
But what’s been done for you.
This is not about where you’ve been,
But where your brokenness brings you to
This is not about what you feel,
But what He felt to forgive you,
And what He felt to make you loved.

We all have our own stories of turmoil and distress where we’ve failed and failed over and over again. I’ve been through it too. It’s so difficult even with God. But all I know is it was way easier with Him there than without. This song. This song is truth. Mike Donehey, the lead singer of this band, said in a video. If we’re good we’re more than our successes and if we’re bad we’re more than our failures. You know why? This is why. We are the sum of God’s love for us. Everything else that we’ve done doesnt matter. It’s what Christ did for us that makes us who we are. We aren’t sinners that are saved. We are Saints that sin. We aren’t struggling to be free. We are free to struggle. Thank you God. For loving us. Despite all the pain we caused you.
1 John 4:10-
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
You my friend are loved. Dont ever forget that.
