Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away, washed away


Walked through the trees in the rain!

I hate that summer is over, I love the feel of it.  It slowly goes by but ends too quickly. 
 Summer is beautiful,
but this past summer really was. 

 I feel as if this summer was an ending for me; like apart of my life was locking me out and I didn't have any where else to go.  I slowly watched as my life began to change and watched as it slipped away. I became so focused on what I was losing I didn't realize what I was gaining. I finally saw God was closing the door to the life I knew, but pulling back the curtains to reveal the place he was taking me. I am always surprised by God. Even when I am not expecting it he shows me something new and amazing. Following Him is hard, its difficult, and its messy. Although new experiences are intimidating this is going to be an exciting journey with a beautiful ending!

Beautiful Tears

Its so awsome knowing that God knows exactly what you need, and when you need it.  Coming from a private Christian high school, and begining college at a public university is a crazy change.  It makes it so much harder to see Christ everyday.  Its hard not seeing Christ's love flowing through people, and is a real struggle.
                            
                 
But!

    While waiting to go to class I was sitting in one of the buildings on campus, and heard a guy nearby talking REALLY loud.  It was really frustrating being distracted by his talking until I realized he was talking about Christ!  And not just talking about Him but being genuinely excited about Him. The guy was so passionate about his love for God, he didnt care about anything around him. 

It was BEAUTIFUL seeing God come
alive inside someone, and flow through them. 
It brought beautiful tears knowing God intended
for me to be there at that time and see He is on my campus
and I can find Him. 



You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. ~Jeremiah 29:13 


When I think about God flowing through people, I feel like when we get excited about Him and talk about Him He starts poking through us making cracks in ourselves until we shatter and all that is seen is Him.  He is amazing and beautiful and I want and should constantly show the world
How Great My God Is!

Jesus Rays

I love driving down the road when its cloudy outside, and there are thin streams of sunlight poking through the clouds.  These Jesus Rays look like little bits of God's glory peeking down on us.




I love knowing that even when everything seems dark and uncertain, God still cares and "peeks" at us through the clouds.
