[OBLIGATORY TEXT POST ABOUT THE AFTERMATH-FEELS FROM THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG]
I’m always scared I’m going to end up settling. Like, I know what I want in a guy and in a relationship but I’m always scared that I’m going to settle because I like the attention and because I’m lonely. It almost happened earlier this year and I was just thinking to myself how I needed to hop on that because I don’t get that attention often and who knows how long it’s going to be before someone shows me attention again.
I don’t know, I just get scared I’m going to settle out of loneliness.
It’s 2am and
I just finished my SECOND video-chat of the night.
When I returned from church and got the “I’m free! I’ll lead worship and bring friends!” message, I Skyped with the homie for almost an hour about tidbits for the event, a Christmas party, and reminisced about my old Chapel-hosting days.
It was wonderful.
What a good friend I have.
Bless my soul.
And then, another friend of mine and I were SnapChatting each other back and forth so much that we ended up FaceTime-ing for an hour.
So, basically, the fellowship and encouragement I received from both Zach and Rachel was just oh-so wonderful. And even though I have to be up in a little less than six hours, its totally worth it because I am reminded of the Father’s love and that is what it’s all about!
In pursuit of the Father.
Seeking His face by loving, encouraging, and experiencing life with brothers and sisters in Christ.
What a beautiful thing it is, when I can worship the Lord with the people I hold near-and-dear.
Thank you, God, for that reminder tonight.
I sounded the call to some of my San Diego Christian College music/worship leading friends—about possibly helping lead worship for the church’s Christmas Eve Service.
THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
Where churches everywhere fill to the brim.
Who am I to turn down the leading/planning of this years event (because there isn’t anyone else on staff that can do it—because there isn’t anyone else on staff//woes)?
SIX DAYS PASSED AND NO REPLIES.
I returned home from church to a message on Facebook, agreeing to lead and BRINGING FRIENDS!
I am beyond elated right now.
We are going to worship so hard and I am so excited for praising Jesus with my students, my friends, my staff, my church, and those creasters!
I did a thing
for the followers that are on here more frequently and wonder why I might avoid posting too many things about myself, I made a page that might as well be called Selfie City. But it’s not.
Check this shindiggery out.
undr-the-radar asked: Warning: this is not a question. I just like your posts. Keep em coming. Also, I'm crazy jealous of ur Tumblr username lol!!
My URL was actually suggested to me by the great and wonderful Lem (my YM Internship Prof at San Diego Christian College-To my knowledge, he still reads this blog). I own at least a dozen fanny packs and for the greater part of college, I had one on my hip (or across my shoulder) at all times.
I have since then grown. They all hang on the back of my closet door and only come out of hiding for certain YM trips that a backpack is just too much for.
Youth Ministry is crazy, but so is the life of one who aspires to be like Christ.
Sometimes I look at my life and think “what a joke!” My attempts at any right living are an absolute joke; and He definitely has a sense of humor.
