Am I running away from love?
I know it’s okay to be single, and I know it’s okay to be single for long. I’m 22 years old and very confused. There is a boy who I liked who broke my heart ( I’m ashamed to admit it). He always tells me I’m beautiful, always stares, always finds ways to converse, always asks me if there’s a guy in my life, always noticed when I changed my hairstyle, always complimented my style, always remembers our conversations> I get so confused how to express my like for someone , or how to respond and I always feel like I mess up and God all I’m asking for is a break- a time where I can love myself enough to allow myself to love and be loved. But I don’t know how these things work. Don’t know what I’m asking for as well, but you can read my heart*

One night I had a dream—
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.
This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you would walk with me all the way,
but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
“I don’t understand why in times when I needed you most,
you should leave me.”
The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
“When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”
When I try to get some exercise in during exam week
Ahahahaha!! Yup this seems legit
The night out after a block exam
I CANNOT WAIT!!!!
When I focus on Jesus
Love is easy, forgiveness is simple. Joy comes quickly. Peace is present.
If I focus on myself, or others
the questions seemingly without answer,
It is then that I feel cheated and angry and bitter
Worried and frightened and alone
And not at all myself.
So I put my eyes back on Jesus.
God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation. (Hebrews 2:10)
