Well it is here

My last day of class in college. I have 3 finals next week then I am done. Where in the world did the time go. Not to be cliche or anything but it really does feel like it was just yesterday that I sat down in my first college class...9 am English 101 at the University of Alabama. What a crazy 4 years it has been. I would have never predicted on that day in August 2005 that I would be where I am, doing what I am doing today. Just goes to show that we can make plans but it is the Lord who directs our steps. I couldn't have asked for more out of my college years. Did I waste time? sure I did. Did I waste money? absolutely. Did I do things that most likely did not bring glory to God? unfortunately. Did I share with me peers the best thing that has ever happened to me... being reconciled by a man named Jesus so now I have no more guilt? Positively. Do I know more about myself and about God than four years ago? Totally.

So all in all I would say that it has been a crazy wild ride, but the Lord taught me things I could have never imagened. He used me in ways I still can't fathom and He was more faithful than words can express.

So here's to college. I will most definitely miss it, but I must say I am glad I never have to write another paper again (after Wednesday :))!

Beth Moore is Wicked

Okay well now that you think I am about to go on a rampage about Beth Moore just hear me out.

I'm at work this morning, doing contributions and listening to the Passin podcast and Louie mentioned that Beth Moore is coming to Passion 2010 and it sparked a memory in my head of a dream I had last night.

It is brief but I laughed when I though about it and decided to blog about it... since my blogs are so few and far between these days.

But last night I had a dream that Elphaba from Wicked (which I saw from the 2nd row on Saturday by the way... aaaamazing) was in fact Beth Moore... and to top it all off she was at the Chick-Fil-A in Hoover signing autographs and giving out free chicken nuggets.

The Word

I heard this song on 93.7 today and absolutely fell in love with it. It is so rare that I listen to the radio, but I am so glad I did today. It is called "The Word" by Sara Groves.

Check out the lyrics. Phenomenal.

I've done every devotional
Been every place emotional
Trying to hear a new word from God
And I think it's very odd
That while I attmept to help myself
My Bible sits upon my shelf
With every promise I could ever need

And the Word was
And the Word is
And the Word will be

People are getting fit for truth
Like they're buying a new tailored suit
Does it fit across the shoulders
Does it fade when it get older
We throw ideas that aren't in style
In the Salvation Army pile
And search for something more to meet our needs

I think it's time I rediscover
All the ground that I have covered,
Like seek ye first what a verse
We are pressed but not crushed
Perplexed but don't despair
We are persecuted but not abandoned
We are no longer slaves
We are daughters and sons
And when we are weak we are very strong
And neither death nor life nor present
Nor future nor depth nor height
Can keep us from the love of Christ
And the Word I need is the Word that was
Who put on flesh to dwell with us
In the beginning

Oh a month
