I’m incredibly horrible at saying goodbye. When the moment to move forward comes, I have this lump in my throat, and it always seems like the tears are lurking somewhere behind my eyes. Today, I took one of my closest friends to the bus station for her to catch a bus back home. Yeah, I’m being vague with where the “home” is, because we’re all in such a transient phase of our lives that it’s difficult to tell where our homes actually are. It’s this interesting phase between officially still living with your parents, so their house is home, but you’re also done with college, so we’re now officially considered adults. Anyway, just before she left, we prayed. While I was busy committing this girl to God’s hands, she began to cry. It took everything in me to not cry as well. What use would it have been? I was trying to be strong, despite the very drastic change that will come from seeing each other daily for most of college, and now not knowing …

Hello friends! I hope you’re all doing great. I missed my usual soundtrack for the week yesterday. I’m so sorry, I missed the post because I had a horrible headache so I went to bed right after church. I had a chorale (my college choir) concert earlier in the afternoon and I was going to write about my love for music and how one of our songs (in our secular choir) was inspired by the prophet Elijah. The song is called Life thine eyes, and it’s inspired by the story in 1 Kings 19, when Jezebel wanted to kill Elijah because He called down fire from heaven and killed hundreds of ball’s prophets. Elijah fled to the wilderness, and asked God to kill him (yeah yeah, he was suicidal, lonely and frustrated so can we stop with the silence over depression especially in the church?) It’s a really interesting story so please check it out in 1 Kings 19. I’ll condense the story by stating that God came through for Elijah, assured Him of His unwavering love, told him …
