In the past few hours, I got an insane amount of encouragement and I feel like a big ball of joy right now.
God is so good.
These past few weeks have been really hard readjusting to life after camp and life as a community college attendee so I’ve been pretty discouraged lately. But tonight was so great.
A friend of mine from middle school kind of went off the grid after her mom died our 8th grade year. She got involved with some pretty bad stuff but my family still did our best to facebook message her and let her know we still love her a lot. My mom ran into her the other day at Sonic and found out that she moved back in with her dad and started working there and cleaned up her life. She told my mom that she wants to hang out with me sometime and to exchange numbers. This is amazing. For one- that Melissa would have such a change of heart. And two- I get the honor of pouring into her.
This school year, I became a leader for the freshmen girls at my youth group and tonight they came over for a social. They were so much fun and super refreshing. (i have the best small group eva)
I just got off the phone with ma main homie g (mads) and she just spoke so much wisdom and encouragement into me. (god bless)
THEN I check my phone and see that I have a text from a very good friend of mine who is still in high school but wants to start meeting regularly as accountability partners. (which i freakin’ needed one)
My goal over the summer was this “be so poured into, that I begin to overflow into the lives of others”. I feel like that goal is becoming accomplished now. I have:
- A mentor
- An accountability partner
- Someone to disciple
- A group of girls to lead
I’m so excited to see what God has in store for my school year. I don’t know why I worry/freak out. He’s got this.
