What an awesome weekend in the Lord! I attended a youth convention all day Friday and Saturday. Jesus is my center. He is my hope. He allows me to utter “I am safe. I am secure. I will forever be okay.” Jewel has a song out now that opens with the line, “If I could tell the whole world just one thing, it would be that we’re all okay.” It’s a beautiful song, but I fear it isn’t true. How can anyone be okay without Jesus?
My brother turned 24 yesterday. Crazy! I called him last night. He is trying to get involved in a new church in Richmond. He didn’t go back to school. He isn’t allowed anymore financial aid. So much time and money and he never got his degree. Sad.
I went over to Sterling’s yesterday and we just hung out. We worked on a puzzle and I played basketball with Cohen. This whole place, Sterling’s house, Christin’s smile, it all feels like home. I belong here. God is moving here. There is no greater peace than to know you are where you belong.
