The University Grind : Part I

Hi guys! Wow it's been way too long since I blogged. I feel like I'm always saying that. SMH but I've actually missed writing and being creative so much! I'm not completely abandoning Voyageuse Africaine, I promise. Life is just different and crazy and obviously I'm in a new season of it which is awkward and a bit uncomfortable. SMH who am I kidding it's very uncomfortable. I'm still adjusting, believe it or not. I didn't really think about how long it would take me to mentally and emotionally adjust to university life. I actually didn't think about it at all. I was too busy trying to figure out how I would decorate my space, and how many room mates I would have. On the actual reals.

I realized that I haven't shared much about my university shenanigans. I'm majoring in Communication Design, and God-willing I shall specialise in Graphic Design which is super fun and interesting and yes. Its so crazy to see that even 7 months ago I didn't know which uni I would be in, much less what I would end up doing. But Jehovah has remained faithful even when I am not and  that just blows my little mind.

Spiritually I am just dskjfalkdsfjklafhlks. You guys. Campus Ministry is takes up like 50% if not more of my time. I'm basically either at church, a lecture or my room. Like I have no energy to be in any other place than those three. But it's a blessing because I know church work will be a covering and a shield. My pastor back home, ahem if I can call Kenya my home, said those exact words and it's seriously coming to pass. You literally have no time or energy to be walking around aimlessly or doing things that aren't going to help you in any way. And it's not like I'm missing out on anything either. I have a ton of fun socializing with brothers and sisters in Christ and it can be fun and games, but when its time for real work and prayer, we mean business. I'm excited to see what God has planned and I can't wait to share a testimony of how God has been faithful and how He has worked amazingly in my life.

However, I can't say everything is all fine and dandy. Everything about Campus Ministry and lectures and assignments is hard work. I never really understood what it meant to kill your flesh until I got here. There's days where I go to class without eating. Another example would be sacrificing my "me-time" to serve God. Its hard and uncomfortable, but God doesn't move in comfortable situations. He's obviously breaking me for spiritual maturity.

I have so much to share about the past three months of university life and everything I'm learning and how God is teaching me things. Hopefully, by God's grace I can get back into a bit of blogging.

I hope you dear reader have been doing well! I need you to know that Jesus Christ, the Son of God loves you so much! That is what John 3:16 clearly says. He died on the Cross so that you and I could have eternal life and get to be with Him in Heaven one day. Declare Him as your Lord and Savior and turn away from earthly desires today. James 4:8 says "Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners and purify your hearts, you double-minded".

You, dear, are loved with an everlasting love. Embrace Jesus' love for you today. He's waiting.
