Wow, this school year has really been a huge challenge to me this year. I have found that I do not adjust easily to the 100-miles-an-hour rate that public schools use. I'm afraid that in all my rush and hurry and panic and cramming it all in that my relationship with Jesus has been pushed aside too much with an "Oh, you know what, I'll do that when I have more time on my hands." I have discovered that that doesn't happen. When I said that, it was like God looked at me and said, "Alright, go ahead and try it. We'll just wait and see how this turns out". All of a sudden I had no motivation, and an overpowering feeling of laziness. And the more I quit trying to come back to the Word, and quit trying to talk to Jesus, the more boring it all seemed and the harder things at school got. But this weekend the men of our family went out camping and us girls had the entire time to hang out and just be.......well, girls! Every day we would cuddle up in Mommy's bed and read the bible and sing our hearts out. And the next morning (even thought I slept in considerably late for someone used to waking up at 6:00 am) I had a relaxed and fresh feeling of being able to take whatever came at me that day, a feeling of motivation. A feeling of overflowing love for what is good, and a desire to bring Jesus back into my life. Usually when I start thinking about all the math homework I have to do, I get this sinking feeling in my stomach and I feel like it ruins my day. I still have a rather decent chunk of math homework to do, (and I can't believe I am saying this) but I'm almost looking forward to it!!!! Ooh, Our Lord is amazing! So that is what has been happening to me this week. I would love to hear what your week has been like and how any prayers of yours have been answered!
