A Space for Growth

This past Spring semester I intended to take five classes. In the midst of life’s uncertainty, I desire to always be one step ahead of the game. When the Coronavirus began to make the news, I was finishing up my 3rd eight-week class and about to start my last two classes for the semester. I was already drained and I was feeling extremely unmotivated. As someone who uses productivity to counteract internal thoughts, I always push the go button. However, the professor I had was unprofessional. In the past, I felt gut feelings regarding situations, ignoring them which lead to adverse outcomes. I had left extra space for classes and, after some prayer and reflection, I chose to drop the class. I felt as if God has led me to sign five classes at the moment so that maybe I was forced to feel comfortable dropping a class and using this time to look within.

A lot of my identity comes from my academics. I find comfort in my continual dedication to school as it has always been my strong suit. I am seeing how I have failed to put Christ in place of my schoolwork. So, during this offtime, I have forced myself to engage in nature walks and meditation. I have spent time bringing out emotions that I have buried deep. My path may be unique and unorthodox but I am grateful for  I was constantly anxious and I didn’t want to feel that way anymore. I am excited to share my journey with you guys!

    Same same. A lot of my identity comes from academics. There’s something amazing about academics, right? I feel blessed that there’s something that excites me to the bottom of my 💜❤heart. Stay healthy and safe

    I’ve been working on studying and learning more with scripture and learning from knowledgeable people. It’s exciting to learn and grow.

    I’ve found people on Youtube or videos of sermons that help with my studies. Doreen Virtue, Mike Winger, Paul Washer, Leonard Ravenhill, John Bunyan, Justin Peters, Fighting 4 Faith, Wretched, Melissa Dougherty, and more. 🙂 American Gospel In Christ Alone on Netflix was eye opening.

    I’ve also searched for a lot of free books on the kindle app, too. It’s amazing how many resources are out there!! <3 Praying for you 😊😊
