I Love You

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." -Mark 10:45

I Love You
Myself

Through the eyes of God: You are precious. You are desired. You are loved, though you continuously break My perfect law and stray from the path that I've laid before you (Romans 3:23). Even when you are faithless, I will be faithful (2 Timothy 2:11-13). I will seek you out and hurl your sins away from you, as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103). I give you My peace, and I do not give it to you in the same cheap way that the world thrusts lies and its own expectations onto you. I give to you in a heavenly way (John 14:27)...without expecting anything back, since I know that you cannot repay Me (Ephesians 2:8-9).

You are never alone (Joshua 1:5). I will never leave you; I will never abandon you for any reason. I have given you a Helper to dwell within your mortal, fragile body until you are reunited with Me (John 14:16). I asked the Father to give you this Helper. He will lead you into all truth, since you are not capable of leading yourself. But do not enter into self-deprecation, for you are precious and honored in My sight, and I love you (Isaiah 43:4).

I will be your confidence (Proverbs 3:26). How do you feel, knowing that your own self-image was shaped by My lovingkindness towards you. I am your very strength, and your song (Psalm 118:14). I will bless my people with sleep (Psalm 127:1-2). Therefore, come to me when you need rest. Take the weight that I carry; trade it for your own. For my yoke is easy, and the burden that I carry is very light (Matthew 11:28-30). Let my gentleness make you great and lift you up (Psalm 18:35). Let your gentleness be apparent. Do not disrespect my gentleness towards you by refusing to be meek (Philippians 4:5). In this way, you will be a light for the unbeliever. If I, the God of the universe, refuses to harm you, shouldn't you do the same for others (Luke 6:31)?

With Me, you will soar on wings like eagles, you will run and not grow weary, you will walk and not be faint (Isaiah 40:31). When anxiety was great within My servant David, he cried out to me, and I relieved him of all of his fears (Psalm 94:19). But crying out to Me is not enough. Your life was designed to crave purpose through interaction with others. Serve them so that you can help Me gather My family to myself (Mark 10:45). Even when you feel you are not good enough, your heart is only deceiving you. I am greater than your heart, and I know everything (1 John 3:20).

Even when you are faithless, I am faithful. I cannot deny who I Am (2 Timothy 2:11-13). I will restore you to me, for I love and pursue you with all My heart and all My soul (Jeremiah 31:33). You are My bride, and My special possession. You will forget the shame of your youth when I gather you to Myself once more (Isaiah 54:4).

Do not be afraid (Joshua 1:9).

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
