frigid days and fake gunmen

Today has been an interesting one to say the least. This is going to be a baby post due to time, productivity, creativity, and enthusiasm restraints. Biology consisted of nasty dissection of worms and health centered around an STI seminar (because STD is apparently majorly offensive). To say the least, school is harshing my mellow. Throw in fake gun alerts and ridiculously busy free froyo deals.. and you get one relatively bitter freshman. But that is the past. I have free halloween treats, comfy clothes, pumpkin coffee, and swell Lubbock company to keep me going. Mmmmm. Lovin it.

Trust in the Lord always; that's what it all boils down to for me. There is nothing in this town, this school, my life, or my day that I have control over. Surrendering my selfishness and clinging to the Lord's joy in me has been the lesson of the week. His path will be provided regardless of my current or delayed acknowledgement. Galatians 5: 24 -25 reads "Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit." The Spirit eternally dictates our human path while on this journey we call life. He is trekking before us, guiding our move every step of the way. So put on those running shoes, and be prepared to follow His rhythm. Chances are, He won't be asking you for directions. Stop fighting, set down your map, and go with the flow of the Spirit.
