My homework is to pick any Bible passage and read it every day for 10 days in hopes that the Holy Spirit will illuminate its meaning to me. YES. Fun homework wins.
I am so overwhelmed with the blessing of friendship. God is so so gracious to gift me with the friends that I have grown closer to in the past year!
My birthday is this Saturday, but I when I got back from my shower this morning, a big cupcake holder was sitting on my desk with a note from Haily explaining that the celebration starts today! My closest friends would be finding me throughout the day to give me a cupcake and a note, and by the end I would have 19 cupcakes from 19 friends!! Sweet Haily made them all and organized this whole thing where she called a secret meeting for everyone to pick up their cupcake to give to me. She is AMAZING, people.
So today my friends came to my classes, intercepted me while I was walking somewhere, found me at work, sat outside the building I was in waiting for me to come out, et cetera….they all had sweet notes and I got so excited and surprised every time. Haily and I only remembered to take one picture, but here it is…me and Natalie!
Best Presentation goes to my friend Lauren for her to-go box converted into a gold glitter treasure box. Puh-lease.
I feel SO incredibly loved and it’s only celebration day 1 of 3! My birthday gets better every year, I swear.
If I could encourage you all with something to be praying for- present to God your desire to have Godly, encouraging friendships! He wants to bless His children far beyond their wildest dreams with relationships where each person is bringing the other closer to Him. He wants you to have vibrant, fun, meaningful relationships, and often those are best developed in college!
In high school, I prayed a lot for deep relationships once I got to college. Immaturely, I didn’t really expect Him to answer it, because it seemed kind of too good to be true. But, friends, how FAITHFUL our God is! How eager to give His loved ones precious gifts, even when they have the tiniest faith that He’ll provide! He longs to satisfy You, ultimately with His presence alone, but also with tangible relationships. We have a mighty, powerful God listening to every word we think.
“And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” John 14:13-14!
With something as vital as relationships, be bold in your requests to God. Pray expectantly. Pray knowing that He wants to answer. !!!!
