So...God is so much smarter than I ever gave Him credit for. I started my residency at 1027church this week and I am so excited about it! More to come on that! I can see that it's going to be an action-packed year!
God also worked it out so that I could work 5 days a week at the GT AA where I worked before graduation until the GBI starts. I've really hung my hat on the GBI opportunity, even though it's still not for sure.
I am excited to have a roommate again soon. It's a little lonely in the burbs. It'll be great to have someone to bounce ideas off of, struggle with, etc. This summer has been so hard but such a blessing and so restful. I am loving that it's football season. Dad is coming to atl in 2 weeks and I could not be more excited to see him and spend time with him.
Also, this article at the radiant site that really articulated my prayer from the last few years.
Esp the last 2 paragraphs:
"I want my understanding of His love for me to be the basis of my life choices, not my need to avoid potential pain in life. But the more I prattle on about understanding grace, the more He shows me one more area of my life where I am trying to earn His favor and blessing.
I know that this is the part where I should write a concise wrap-up that brings the questions to resolution by cleverly relating sex and grace to Kevin Costner movies. But the truth is that there are no easy answers or quick fixes. If the only thing in it for me is reflecting the glory of God, will I still choose to obey Him? "
