*this is my g e n e s i s....

*so today started a genesis for me.
more this week i think.

*sunday at lighthouse... broke me down, that i need to constantly be running towards Christ, and not just running for a season, and then coming to a screeching halt. but once i come to a halt, then i start realizing how much more i need to keep running to keep myself in check with my walk with Christ.
Hebrews 12:1-3...
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart..."

*wednesday night, i went to a leaders meeting for wsm [woodside student ministries] and i am going to be getting involved this year as a leader, not a student, which gives me mixed emotions, but i really do want to be a part of the ministry and pour my life into the girls at wsm. i really do have a passion to share my heart and my stories and my experiences with girls younger than me and i want them to feel welcome, and to grow, and to realize how much they need to make their faith their own, and to fall head over heals in love with stoked to see where wsm is going this year and i cant wait to be more of a part of it!

*today, i started my classes and i really had no idea what to think, and what to expect, but all in all it was totally fine and i still dont know what i want to do with my life, but theres some ideas, and i know that my mind will change a million and one times over the next couple years, but i just want to run after what God wants me to do. and its just this new phase of life that i have to take, in order to get to the next one.

*so i say 'genesis' because it means, origin or beginning and i love to relate seasons of my life to music or a song and so all day i was thinking of the song "say goodbye" by joy williams and the lyrics say exactly what im feeling like this week and looking towards the new beginnings in front of me...

....Say goodbye, say goodbye
To the you I knew before
Say hello, say hello to a new beginning
Say goodbye, say goodbye
To the you I knew before
This is your genesis

Face to face
The present and past collide
And it's no mistake
I see the future is in your eyes
You seem so free
Like nothing's ever gonna keep you down.

*ps, brit, court, & i have now known each other for NINE years!? and although we've had our ups & downs in the past, we still can pick up a conversation & have awkward silences & know what each other are going to say without saying it...
