“We don’t fit in, you and me,” he said. “We’re both oddities no one knows what to do with. But we fit together.” He took her hand, pressed her palm to his, then laced their fingers through each other’s. “We fit.”
- The Madness of Lord Ian McKenzie
It’s been more than a year since I went back to school. More than a year since I was approved to extend for 7 more terms. Now, 3 terms had passed by a little too quickly and I only have 2 more terms left until I graduate. Two more terms! Can you believe it? I’m gonna cry by then.
I suddenly realized all of it when I was filling up my subscription form for our yearbook. Goodness, I’ve waited 7 years for this. But it’s all worth it. I just had to be reminded again how I wanted this, so bad. When everything’s just too stressful and so tiring, I just have to remind myself all of this.
Sure times will get tough and at some point, you’ll get shaken by the situations you have, but last night, God reminded me that He is sovereign over all. I just have to trust Him whatever comes my way.
This first two months of the year was just so… I can’t even explain. But the good thing out of everything is that I learned of the people who will always, always be there. Not just in the good times, but also in the bad times.
God, You’ve always been so patient with me. Your grace has sustained me everyday. So, thank You for never giving up on me Father.
taught me how to use my arms as runways for
seven-four-seven airplanes, how to carry my heart
in my chest in a bag in a flight, and how to
disappear without ever moving my feet.
Life can be full of ups and downs, twists and turns. We’ve all had to face challenges and difficulties. But did you know that everything you’ve been through up until now is getting you prepared for what God is going to do in your future? Nothing in your life has been wasted. Every disappointment, every setback, every person that did you wrong, every lonely night, God is going to turn around and use for your good!
During the difficult times, we grow and mature. That’s when our faith is stretched and our character is developed. God didn’t send that hardship, but He’ll use it to get you prepared for your next step. Those adversities will help make you and mold you into the person you are called to be.
You may be experiencing tough times today, but remember, nothing is ever wasted. Have the attitude that says, “This is a new day. Things are shifting in my favor. This difficulty is not going to stop me. It’s going to promote me. It was meant to bring me down, but I know the truth; God is going to use it to lift me up and lead me into victory all the days of my life.”
