calming in the chaos

I can officially say I have taken 4 college exams in 3 days and I'm still alive and kickin!! Bleck, I feel so collegiate saying that.. These past weeks have zoomed by in a blur of last minute cram sessions and seas of new awesome Aggie faces. After my last class today, I crashed on the beanbag and absorbed the bodily beating of inadequate sleep and foreign eating habits. My new normal is so radical from anything I have ever dealt with, and that is coming from a early high school graduate that had a real world office job and nannied kiddos everyday the past 8 months. Strange thing, all this change. 

Mirroring the cry of my earthy body, the Lord has lately been calling me in the calm escape of His love. All week He has reminded me, "I am your rescue!" Why do I stress out about anything when I know the Creator of Everything loves me and wants to make my day in the most unexpected ways. Hmmm. Food for thought there. God has been restoring my energy IN Him, breaking me down to my core so that He alone can build me up. Even now, it amazes me how His fingerprint is my life (I would say all over, but that really doesn't justify how much awing orchestration I have seen lately). In the midst of whatever crazy junk we are going through, He is always there just eyeballing us, knowing our steps and anticipating our every move. Today has been the first day in a while that I have just sat. sat. and sat. and sat with the lover of my failures. I would totally encourage you to, wherever you are in whatever you are doing. Breathe. Take a chill pill and just be.
