Some days I am just overwhelmed
In all the right ways, for all the right reasons. I mean, sometimes it’s just so apparent that God has blessed me so far beyond what I deserve. Today, I am feeling very blessed to have Austin to walk through life with me. Those of you who have followed my blog a while know that I’ve had my bad times with guys (and times when I was just really really stupid about them) and that I always wondered why I was the one who was “forever alone”. Well, as always, God had perfect timing and perfect plans. When I least expected it, He gave me a man who loves the Lord, respects me, cherishes me, makes me laugh, gives the BEST hugs, and who just brings joy into my life! Even though I was impatient, God was faithful and brought me someone who I in now way deserve. Even though we’re apart right now, and distance isn’t ideal I am so thankful that I have someone who is willing to work through the not so ideal situation to be with me. Also, Austin is willing to go across the world to do missions with me…I never thought I’d find someone like that! It’s just amazing how I’m given such good gifts by God, and it’s amazing how He teaches me things though tough situations. I hate being apart from Austin for all of college while knowing that he’s the one I want to marry; however, God is teaching us both such patience in this situation and teaching us to put our relationships with God first, and I just think that’s amazing. I am so blessed, and I am so thankful.
