Ah, the college life

See that beautiful lady I'm hugging? That's the best Mama in the world. She has done more for me than I thought humanly possible. She has shown me the love of Christ and pointed me to Him daily. Thanks, Mama♥.

Well, today I am setting off into a whole new world - college. I am signing up for all my classes at ICC. Part of me wants to say, "This is the beginning of the END!" But I know that as the door of childhood closes and this door of adulthood opens, the Lord will guide me, grow me and strengthen me to know and follow Him. We serve Christ! That wonderful Savior! This verse has really been on my mind:

"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." ~ Colossians 3:1-4

We often get distracted by the world and do not see that our goal should be to bring glory to God. Oh that my heart will always be set on things above. I pray that the Lord will remind me of this verse all throughout my college life.


  1. O come and reign, Lord Jesus
    Rule over everything,
    And keep me always holy
    And true to Thee, my King.
