Hiatus

It’s been 55 days since I’ve sat down to write for my blog. That’s easily the longest period of time since starting this page that I’ve been away.

College, well, it’s been busy. But more than that, it’s been filled with people, experiences, and new realizations. It’s been laughter and disappointment, frustration and triumph. It’s been some of the greatest months of my life, and it’s hard to believe that freshmen year is nearly over.

During the most recent weeks, I’ve struggled to balance time spent with friends, homework, time with myself, and time spent with God in a healthy and meaningful way. Last week, I started making moves towards self-health and treating myself better — and it’s done much already. It’s incredible to me how waking up and going to bed one hour earlier every day can make me so much more productive, since now I have an extra hour every day to spend in silence and read my Bible. Enjoying the mornings are a rediscovered blessing for me.

To be honest, I’m not sure where this blog is going to go — whether God will continue to give me things to write, or if I’m to just leave it be and move on to something else. There have been times where I have wanted to write something, but had nothing to write about; and other times when I just wanted to give it up and put it to rest. I want this blog to reflect the words that my good friend used to remind me of all the time: “Soli Deo Gloria,” no matter what that means. If continuing to write honors God most, so be it. If honoring God means walking away, well, I’ll definitely miss it, but will look ahead to what He will do in the future.

As I sit here and reflect on where I’ve been and where I’m going, I want to thank those of you who have read thus far for your support, encouragement, and intentionality. Y’all have blessed me so much. To the Lord be all of the glory! Amen.
