It's the little things ya know? God is constantly working in our lives and he is constantly doing things to remind us of this. It is very ironic to me and I love it. I know I have posted about it before, but it is so COOL to see and know he is there.
Today, started out like any typical Thursday.
Me sleeping as late as possible in hopes of getting as much sleep as possible. To wake up in a panic trying to get ready as fast as possible, thinking, "Cade if you would have gotten up when you set this first alarm all would have been fine. But you can't change this now." I showered threw on all the necessities for the day and I ran to catch the shuttle. I decided I would wait to do my devo when I got back from class because when I first woke up I had to review for my quiz. Anyways, after class and lunch I came back to my room and did my devo.
Sometimes when I am worried or unsure of something I like to write it in my journal because:
1. It makes me feel a lot better
2. I love to be able to look back and see how God worked everything out
I have been really down lately because I haven't been reaching as many people as I want. I mean my numbers of views are wonderful, but I always thought the longer I blogged the more people would begin to read. They have increased, but I always want more than I am given, you know? My constant prayer is that God will use me to impact and spread his news to as many people as possible. I have always said
"If you want me to live on a island with 50 people and share with them great, but just so you know God I would love to share with the whole world." I mean many people want that, but I just really feel like he is calling me to do that. So I wrote about my discouragements and moved on with my day. At that moment I looked down and there it was.
"I am courageous."
Right there on my cool purple socks. BAM.
I got these cool purple socks from my sweet friend Maycen for Christmas, but I didn't really pay attention to them because I loved the fact that they were purple... I didn't really notice anything else. But today... There it was... God's note to me. Those socks have been in my possession since 3 days before Christmas and God chose today, after I wrote in my journal about feeling discouraged, I suddenly see them. You can't tell me that was not God working in my life.
Courageous means not deterred by danger or pain; brave. This is what I needed to hear. I am letting the fear of how will I serve God or how will I impact more people, distract me. This is God's plan. I felt it on my heart to blog about him. I highly doubt he would make that a fail for me. Right now, I am where I am supposed to be and I am doing what I am supposed to. In life we often grow impatient, but lately I have been impatient with God, which is not needed. I am supposed to trust and love him, not question and fear him. Maycen, thank you so much for these socks. They are one of a kind and they are so me. I am so blessed by your friendship and today I am so blessed by these socks. They made my entire day and I am so thankful for that! Socks rock. God rocks. Life rocks. I am doing what God wants me to do and that is all that truly matters here. So friends, always remember to be courageous because with God on our side, there is nothing else to be.

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. A student at Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. 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!
