So, the first week of school is over, and I'm already exhausted and behind on homework. Is that a bad thing? But I have a good excuse. Because I've been busy. Ok, so that's always my excuse. See, I'm president of my (very, very, very) small society. And because I am president, I had to plan rush. For my friends that don't know what that is, basically, all the freshmen are required to join a society (like a sorority or fraternity, without all the garbage and drama.) So I had to plan for someone to make posters, getting them up, stuff to give freshmen, rush parties, pancake breakfast, induction night, and tons of other stuff. I had a lot of fun doing it. I learned a lot. And I had a great crew of girls working with me. I could not have done it without all their help. (So, girls on my officer crew and in my society, if you are randomly reading this, I appreciate you sooo much. I couldn't have chosen a better team to help me). Anyway, the point being this: it's been a lot of late nights and early mornings. And I'm exhausted. But it's a happy tired.
Because I can look back over this week and summer, and even last semester and see the steps God has brought me through to get me ready for this point. Because 2 years ago as a freshman, when I was going through rush and feeling totally overwhelmed, I was so not ready to plan a rush of my own. And here it is over and finished. And it wasn't as hard or as overwhelming as I thought. In fact, it was almost easier than chosing which society to join.
God has been so faithful this past week, though. I've seen him do so much for me, personally. And it isn't always the big things. I mean, at least for me, I don't tend to pray for little things that need to happen. I like to take care of them myself, and trust in myself. When it's something that is a big deal (like we need lots of girls to join our society), I take those to God. When it's little things, that isn't usually my first response. But God answered several of those prayers that I didn't even pray. for instance, the copy center on campus flooded, and I still needed to print 600 buisness cards (75 pages) and get them cut. It would be so much easier for Bellis to cut them than for me to do it. But they were closed. So i just decided to do it myself. So as I was getting ready to print them, one of the people in the computer lab asked what I was doing them told me I should just let Bellis do it because it would be easier. I didn't even know they were open again. This was a few days after the flood. THere have been so many things like that this week that God has worked out even before I thought to ask him. He is so good to me, even when I ignore Him. He takes care of His children, and I can trust Him--no matter what. That's the lesson I've been learning and continue to learn. God is good, and I can trust Him all the time.
