life beyond the well…

praise HIM anyway…

man that was a tight play…and the concept and the thought behind it was sooooooo true. we, as christians, should praise god despite the circumstances.

“…no matter what you’re going through, remember god is using you…for the battle is not yours, it’s the lord’s…”

“…and i vow to praise you through the good and the bad. i’ll praise you whether happy or sad. i’ll praise you in all that i go through because praise is what i do…cause i owe it all to you.”

“…and we know that all things work together for good to those that love god…” ~romans 8:28

today has been a trying day, but i know that in everything, god is working it out for me. i’m still blessed. i’m heading to ATL today to go hear my girl deliver that good sermon for her women’s day. the theme for the women’s day is “drop everything and praise”. i’m excited…this should be tight. i’m asking the lord for traveling mercies…ATL isn’t a short trip and i know that he’s got everything covered since we are going down there to hear one of his children as she works for him.

i’m glad that the semester is winding down and i actually have some time to relax and enjoy time with myself and spend time with god. this semester has been a blessing in so many ways. i love watching god work through different situations and circumstances. it’s amazing how my life has been changed since i started seeking god with an honest and open heart and a desire to know him for who he is. salvation is tiiiiiiiiight…

although this semester is winding down, it’s weird that my senior year at carolina is pretty much half over. pretty soon, i’ll be preparing for graduation and graduate school which is exciting in itself…but undergrad has been fun. nevertheless, i’m excited for all that god has in store for me…and that means moving on to the next phase of my life.

so…that’s what i think/feel right now…

One thought on “praise HIM anyway…

  1. E reading this just reminds me of how far God has taken us, and how when you truly become serious about your walk God will make you into a new person in Christ. I am thankful for the changes he has made in you and those he has made in me. I am thankful for this friendship and I am blessed to have people in my life that remind me that despite my situation God is worthy to be prasied just for being God. I pray that the Lord continue to bless you and that you continue to walk in his goodness. Much Love, Nicole
