A Letter To My Number One Supporter

A friend is someone who truly cares.

To my best friend,

You care for me no matter what, you tolerate all that I am, you don't judge me, and you want me to be happy. I just want to say, thank you. I know I am a handful, and I know that I make deals over the smallest of things; I can be a lot, but you never leave me. A best friend isn't someone who just cares, it is someone that is dedicated to the relationship.

"If you find someone who makes you smile, who checks up on you often to see if you're okay, who watches out for you and wants the very best for you, don't let them go. Keep them close and don't take them for granted. People like that are hard to find."

A best friend can be anyone. He or she can be family, a childhood friend, someone you just met, or even your dog. To me, it's all about loyalty and kindness.

"My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying. Never let LOYALTY and KINDNESS leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart." - Proverbs 3:1-3

God has put you in my life for a reason and I thank him every day. It truly is about being thankful for what you have and where you are now. Things life throws at me can take a diluted turn that one might not see; however, with the love and support from my endearing family and my supporters, I can get through anything.

In my time in need, I go to God first, then my family and friends. I need every last string to keep me going. If I lose God, I am no one. If I lose my family, I am no one. If I lose my friends, I am no one. I try not to ask for a lot but, sometimes, it's what I need over what I want. I don't ask you to understand my perspective on my life, but I ask that you stay and listen. Don't leave. I hope you know I will never leave you in your time of need. Thank you again for everything that you have done. I love you with all of my heart.

Your friend,

Alex

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

1. Isaiah 43:2

"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you."

2. Psalm 37:5

"Commit your way to the Lord. Trust in Him, and He will act."

3. Romans 8:18

"The pain that you've been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming."

4. Proverbs 31:25

"She is clothed in strength, and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."

5. Joshua 1:9

"Be bold. Be brave. Be courageous."

6. Ecclesiastes 3:1

"There is a time for everything and a reason for every activity under the heavens."

7. Isaiah 41:10

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."

8. Isaiah 66:9

"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord."

9. Psalm 91:4

"He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings, you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."

10. Psalm 62:1-2

"My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from Him, He alone is my rock and my salvation."

11. Philippians 4:13

"I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength."

12. Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

God Things Take Time

You may think you're too far behind, or too far ahead, but you are exactly where you should be.

I recently saw this poem/story by Savannah Locke. I had never heard of her until this post went viral and I was immediately in awe of her wisdom.

It takes time for things to be made perfect because everything is perfect in God's time.

Sometimes God's timeline does not match up with our own and as annoying and frustrating as it can be, we have to accept it. We measure ourselves based on society, based on friends, and based on people we don't even know and it gets us nowhere.

Compared to basically everyone I am really, really bad at math. Because of that I probably won't graduate college on time but also because I am so bad at math that also means I spend extra time working with professors, TAs, and tutors because I know that that is the only way I will be successful. All throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I was extra close with the people who taught me math because I knew I needed to be. My mom would help me practice multiplication every single morning on the way to school with flashcards because she also knew I needed extra help.

The extra time it took me, and still takes me, to even slightly pass a math class is not a bad thing. It is not a bad thing that I may not graduate college at the same time as a lot of my friends because I am taking the time I need in order to get the grade I need.

Being bad at math does not make me any less of a human. Just like being bad at English doesn't make anyone else less of a human. Some things take time and that is good.

One of my most favorite Bible stories is the one of Sarah, Abraham, and their son Isaac. Sarah was not even close to in her prime when God told Abraham that she would have a son, but because of that her womb and their son Isaac were drenched in prayer. It took time, faith, and patience for Isaac to be born and wow look at what all he did.

Now, I am not saying that my inability to do math will one day turn into me being some brilliant mathematician, but prayer and patience can turn any doubt into the most beautiful thing.

God things take time and that is perfect.

Realizing that just because you aren't where you want to be, but you are right where God needs you to be is beautiful.

You have to stop measuring yourself with the world's ruler because the Ultimate Ruler created you for a time and purpose.

You do not follow the world's calendar, you follow God's divine plan for your own life.
