that word explains today. it was a boring saturday-- on one hand, i appreciated it because i've been busy seeing friends and hanging out with my lovely new roommate. it was nice to chill, but i can only stay still for so long. and when i'm alone i tend to wayyy overthink things (because my brain has so much room to run). so i worried and prayed and read the bible and worried some more and prayed some more. i stumbled across this verse in deuteronomy 28 where it says, "the Lord will give you an anxious mind, eyes weary with longing, and a despairing heart. you will live in constant suspense, filled with dread both night and day, never sure of your life." that pretty much describes how i've been feeling about finding a job and having money. one way or another, i know i'm not going without. i have food and a house and clothes. there's this other verse that talks about knowing what it's like to be with plenty and live in want but still being content when you have nothing-- i like that one. the world really has lost the need for a god. we have everything money can buy and then some, so why would we need to come to God for anything? it's understandable, but still. i like knowing that God is taking care of me. because the world can't take care of everything i need right now, but He can.

there are lots of things coming up during july.. my best friend is moving to my town (so excited!), hopefully i'll be getting a job soon, the 4th of course (i love fireworks), a wedding for two people that have been wonderful in my life (my only wedding of the summer, i'm stoked), my family's beach week that i will not be attending but will stay at home hanging out with my puppies and hopefully some friends. busy busy. but good. also, i'm dying to get tattoo number three done. it's an important one to me. more about that when i actually get the money and go do it.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."

This is what the sermon in church was about this morning : )
