I am so glad its the weekend! It seemed like a week that needed to end. A week of waiting, a week of learning, a week of growing. God seems to use creative measures to show me where I fall short, reminding me that I need Him, daily.

"Show me yor ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long" ~Psalm 25:4-5

On a lighter note, my house officially became mine today! I got keys and garage door openers. I walked in to my house, took off my shoes and sort of tiptoed around the entire empty house, trying to convince myself that its really my house! WOW!!! I can't wait to see what God will do there! Tomorrow it will be painted and I am stoked!!!! :)

Finally, tomorrow is my favorite day of the whole year...for one reason extra hour of sleep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DON'T FORGET TO SET YOUR CLOCKS BACK AN HOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Glorious Day

Today, I am closing on my first house ever! The emotions are mixed. Nervous for the responsibility that will bring, but excited none the less. However, the glorious day is not because of closing on a house. It has to do with my drive into work. I left really early from Ames to drive to Ankeny...6:30. As I drove to Ankeny, I was looking at the dark sky, listening to music and worshipping my Jesus, and I saw a shooting star! Right in front of me! It was magnificent! And the cool part: God knows that star by name! He is such a personal God! If He knows the star by name, He clearly knows, understands, and cares about my worries in life. What I view as insignificant in light of eternity, He really, truly and genuinely cares about! I experienced the love of my Savior first hand today. Thank you Jesus. Thank you for knowing all, and for doing all that pleases you, and still caring deeply about me. The beauty of how that all fits together overwhelms me today.

Well, my first official post. I wish Icould say it will be full of profound words and wisdom, but the truth is, I didn't like seeing "No posts." HAHA! I don't know if there will ever be words of wisdom, but I can say it will be a time to share funny stories from school, convictions from my Lord, and anything else in between.

Today was our first worship service in our new auditorium at Cornerstone Church of Ames. It was incredible. Worshipful...oh, so worshipful. A taste of what Heaven will be like...for sure. I was reminded, again, that life is not worth living if its not for His glory. And that, that thought alone, made the whole day glorious.

Troy told us a story of how his dad used to pray (I love Tom Nesbitt) for him. He prayed that Troy would die rather than dishonor God or not bring Him glory. A beautiful prayer and a glorious thought. I adopted that prayer today.

For now, that's very first post...
