Last night I was up till around 2 in the morning. I wasn’t studying, tossing and turning, or trying desperately to keep my mind from racing. I was talking. I was sitting on my bed with two my friends, just talking. I know you’re probably thinking, “Um, okay. This conversation better had been good if you’re sitting there writing about it.” Let me tell you it was! Here I was with two other beautiful woman and we were talking about God! I’ll expand on that. Here I was, a 20 year old college student, on a Sunday night, talking to two likeminded women about God. You should have seen us. Laughing, smiling, and sharing the beautiful things God had revealed to us. Now what’s crazy about that is that two of us (one being myself) had just gone through heartbreaks but in different ways. We both had just let go of situationships (hers slightly different than mine). We had been in tears, feeling confused, hurt and trying to make sense of things that were going on in our lives. But instead of being angry with ourselves or the person involved, instead of GOD HAD OUR BACK!! We knew that these feelings would pass, that God would comfort us and that everything was going to be OK! We just knew because we felt the power and comfort of the God that we serve. You just don’t how amazing and blessed I feel to be able to have a group of girls that I can call on and they will pray with me, cry with me, and laugh with me. God has given me a network of sisters that I know will be in my life forever. And in my heart I know this because of one simple reason: We were brought together, not by any man made connection, but by GOD! I don’t know about you but all of that just excites me!! I am literally overjoyed by the fact that through our difficult situation we could just sit there at 2 in the morning in just bathe in the glory of God.
If that’s not a blessing and God’s grace and mercy in action, I don’t know what is!
