Lately I feel like my life is consumed with busyness. This should come as no surprise. I feel like it is the common answer that any college kid will give when asked how they've been. I hate being busy. I love all of the things that I do (with school as the exception) but I hate how scattered I constantly feel. It's like my life has turned into a giant check list that will never have all of the checks. and in my busyness I find myself forgetting to give it all over to the One who brings peace in the chaos.
So then me, being the stubborn human that I am, tries to balance and control everything. I wake up in the morning and automatically think, "What do I have to do today?" Then my brain starts rolling and it's a constant stream of what I have to do. I try to balance my day. I try to be intentional. I suck. I try again. I do it day after day and you think I would learn by now. However, I am finding peace in this little gem that Jim Branch wrote in the blue book:
"Thus, life is only balanced when everything is centered on Christ."
Jim Branch is so cool.
Did I just give Jim Branch a shout out on my blog? I guess that's what that was.
I'm learning to be thankful. I am thankful, but I'm learning to reaaaaally be thankful. Here are a couple of things that have made me smile lately:
my good-looking younglife team. FDT.
I went to my first sorority event the other night. It was called Wacky Tacky Christmas so my friend Emily and I dressed like Mary and Joseph. She has baby Jesus in her hand.
