Oh hey there, June. When did you arrive? Is it possible I missed your entrance with all that rain? Probably.
So internet, it’s June! JUNE! That means that I have a new roommate. That means that Jeremey has moved to Vancouver. It also means I’m graduating next week.
New Roommate: Aaron and I have been getting along like peas and carrots thus far. He is actually really clean. Maybe even cleaner than me. He always does the dishes, he cleans the bathroom and he even takes out the garbage. I haven’t once had to ask him to pick up after himself! My only complaint is that he rarely remembers to put the toilet seat back down. But I feel like the good totally outweighs this minor problem. We’ll see how I feel about that when I inevitably fall into the toilet when I get up to go pee in the middle of the night.
Jeremey: is here. He has moved in with my friend Tom, and they also get along like peas and carrots. Jeremey has been blessed with a place that has not only in suite laundry but a dish washer as well. I try not to be too jealous. Jeremey and I will be leading worship at Mosaic on Saturday night with my friend Lucas, who leads the new worship band I’ve been playing in. It will be a little bit like my Vancouver and Etown musical worlds colliding, or something. Looking forward to it.
Graduation: My parents are flying out for it and I’m going to wear a pretty dress with pretty shoes and walk across the stage and it will be great. It will make it all official. I am a communication professional! Speaking of, I am still looking for a job. And feeling so discouraged. The job market here right now is absolutely dismal. There are lots of jobs being posted, but absolutely everybody is looking so the chances of actually getting called back for an interview are slim to none.
I know that God provides, and I trust that he has something for me. I’m not worried I’m going to end up on the street or anything, but sometimes walking in the will of God is hard. It’s hard to know what his best is. And I really want that. I want to walk in what God has for me, not just something that will pay the bills. So I wait, and I keep applying to things and I keep praying. And I staple this verse to my forehead when I get anxious about it and waiting on the Lord feels totally overwhelming:
“The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” -Phil 4:5-7
