Last semester, there was a lot of new things to get used to and a lot to adjust to. After finishing the fall semester, I was ready for a fresh start with new classes, new grades, and new seats. At the same time, I was equally as worried about these things as I was excited. I was feeling a lot of anxiety when on my way back, but once I sat down and really prayed, I remembered something so important: God is always with us. ALWAYS. There is not a day, hour, minute, or even a second that goes by that he is not with us. I love that and found so much comfort in that, especially today starting this new semester. I am really glad that I will be able to have this fresh start and I am thankful that things went well on this first day. I, of course, am nervous about various things, but I know I can do whatever I put my mind to because God gives me strength and he is always right there pushing me and giving me that confidence.
I have struggled with confidence and moments like today, in a new place, are easily the hardest. They are the hardest, but with that being said, they help me gain more confidence I feel like. That is something that I am very thankful for.
Today, was good. I am tired, but at the same time I feel like I have lots of things to do. Don't you hate that feeling? I just ask that you pray for me to get back in the schedule and back in the swing of things. I am the person who needs that. I either want to be on break or I want to be on schedule... I hate the in-between. I know everything will work out, but right now there are things that I cannot seem to stop thinking about... I always have a do list lol.
I am thankful for this semester and I pray it provides me with lots of things (TBA). I am ready for it to really get rolling because I am ready to see where it takes me. I know things, at times, will not be easy, but I know that I have God with me always and knowing that this is a fresh start makes the worry less worrisome. I am so in love with the Lord and so thankful that he continues to bless me everyday. Even the challenges have to be looked at as blessings. Remember these things and life will fall right into place. God is so good. This semester is going to be so good!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
