this week has been full of beautiful things. hard, but beautiful and some days i would like to yell at the world and other days i can just jump in excitement because life is magnificent.
there are events and times that make your heart soar and flutter in anticipation; those that make your heart heavy; and those where #allofthefeelings come out. chi alpha winter retreat 2o13 has reminded me to come alive. that as i stand in one of my pivotal moments, i can look back and remind myself that all the pain & hurt IS worth it. that i CAN overcome my weakness because in Christ I am strong. as i come out of a weekend of rest, i look towards my future with hope and a renewed urgency to persist in living and thriving. To go forth and take leaps and bounds.
i am grateful that our speaker brett fuller exhorted us to live with integrity: to talk right / walk right / love right / believe right & filter right. i am ready to stand on solid ground and pursue being a Christ-follower in a new way — through actions & not mere words.
musing mondays is a column dedicated to joy. no matter the circumstances, the challenges, and the tribulations of a week — this column can be something i will look back towards and remember to zoom out & think about the bigger picture. that challenges are only momentary and joy will come in the morning.
