WoW! its been a while! Yes, i just spelled WoW funny because words that are spelled the same both ways i like to make the ends capital. Dont judge.
Well i have many things that i could talk about that would probably bore you like how i have an amazing boyfriend, yes i said it! Or even how i bought a car with my own money! Its a 2003 PT Cruiser. But im going to spend this time talking about what the Lord has been teaching me! Okay so this week has not been my most favorite week because its been stressful and frustrating just with work and life and growing up. Monday night i was laying in bed after going to the Voices of LC concert... which was really just a savage worship session. As i was laying there all cuddled up, im pretty sure the Lord spoke because i just dont come up with this stuff. Im sometimes weary of saying the Lord said bc what if it really was just me? i dont wanna confuse the two because my thoughts of sin, selfishness, hate, lust, and simply being a young adult in the world is nowhere near compared to the Lord speaking life and joy and stretching me beyond measure.
So with those rambles, this is what was said... Shannon rest in the fact that you are MINE. man, talk about something to go to sleep with. The frustrations, stress, and annoyance.. i realized that bigger than all of that is the fact that I am a child of God. He is my Father, Protector, Provider, Comfortor, Giver of Joy. Which is so much more jam worthy than being annoyed at the week. So then of course i immediatly got out my journal and wrote it down using my phone light because i was already about to go to sleep so the lights were off!
It's really been a lot to chew on this week, but despite the badness its been so good and i should probably spend more time being thankful for that than for wishing that the week would end. I should probably just be thankful that the Lord even blessed me with this week. Sometimes i find that its easier to be frustrated than to be thankful. But at the end of the day, i am a daughter of Christ. THAT my friends is a lot to be thankful for.
