i've been pretty busy over the past couple of days, [surprise, surprise] so i haven't gotten to be on my blog as much as i'd normally like to be. so when it came to today's post, i wasn't exactly sure what i was going to talk about.
when i saw this beautiful sunset in the car yesterday night, i knew what i wanted to say.
i am so thankful that i have a loving, omnipotent, omniscient God by my side at all times.
i've gone through some rough things in the past year, and i know that i wouldn't have made it through all of it without my best friends, my parents, and, most importantly, God.
when i have days that i'm feeling more depressed than usual, i think of Job.
when i think that i have something set before me that i cannot possibly do, i think of Esther.
whenever i feel like i literally just cannot move because i'm so filled with sorrow, i think of Matthew 11:28.
[come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and i will give you rest.]
because of one of my jobs, i rarely get to go to church on sundays anymore, and i'm so busy running around that i rarely make time to actually sit down and read my bible on my own. i pray all the time, really, but i know that it isn't enough. it's not enough to keep a relationship.
so yesterday, Leana and i decided to go to a church service out of town since it was on a saturday night and we didn't have anything in the way of going. and it was such a beautiful thing to go somewhere that i've never been and see people praising God with such enthusiasm. to see people who love Him just as much as i do.
and i saw this sunset on my way to the church.
it was one of those-
"God really is awesome" moments. Not awesome in the way that we use it, but truly awesome.
by dictionary definition-
"extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring great admiration, apprehension, or fear."
God is just that awesome.
i love Him more than i can say.
and i'm so thankful that he loves me as well.
happy sunday, everyone.
p.s. - because i technically need two pictures to make this day 57 AND day 58, here's something that made me smile yesterday. (: it's from a friend that moved away a few months ago. he's like family to me. and i miss him quite greatly.
