The Lord has been working in my heart in absolutely indescribable ways in the last few months and it’s really sweet to see the effects of it.
As of lately I’ve been really struggling with where I’m at and the community, or lack thereof, surrounding me. Sure, I have friends, I know a lot of people at the church I go to, and also they’re all a good 50 minutes away in Atlanta and I rarely see them outside of Sunday. If I do see them outside of Sunday it is because I’m the one driving an hour to hang out with them, and I feel like I’m only a convenience friend.
About a month or so ago I started going to a small group/Bible study with some people in my area, and Jesus is working in my heart through that and them. I’m realizing how important it is to have a local community of people, not just people an hour away that I see once a week.
The change to possibly come is uncomfortable, and though it would be easy to just stay where I’m at and keep going through the motions, it’s really been on my heart lately to step out of the comfort zone and into the uncertainty.
I’m excited for what is in store in the coming weeks and to see how Jesus works through it all.

MY MIND THESE LAST FEW WEEKS OF SCHOOL
Honestly, ready to settle down and start a life full of adventure with someone to love.
Trusting people is becoming hard
Keeping my grades up is becoming hard
Feeling pretty is becoming hard
Thinking happy thoughts is becoming hard
Doing work is becoming hard
Maintaining a friendship is becoming hard
Doing everything is becoming hard and I don’t like it
