I can’t believe December is almost over. It has been a crazy busy month but it has flown by. It didn’t really hit me how fast the month has gone by until I realized today that I was in chapter 28 of Isaiah. I started Isaiah on December 1 and have been matching chapter with day all month (though I didn’t even realize this was happening for a few days, ironically). Tonight I was like, “Holy cow, it feels like I started Isaiah, like, a week ago.” Crazy stuff.
Here are a few recurring themes I’ve noticed through my journey in Isaiah so far:
1.) God is God and we are not.
2.) God is so much better than anything we could choose to put in His place (a.k.a. idols).
3.) God is all powerful.
4.) Purification is rarely painless.
5.) God has a plan for His people.
I also got to see Star Wars a few weeks ago. It. Was. So. Good. That’s all I am saying on the subject.
Also, my best friend got engaged three days ago! I think that is possibly the most exciting thing that has happened in my life. Watching my best friend be proposed to by the man God has given her, the man that loves her so beautifully, was such a blessing – I was the hidden photographer.
Speaking of my best friend, she’s a wonderful human being and got me the only thing I asked her for for Christmas – a typewriter! I’ve been having so much fun with it (I also accidentally learned how to type a penguin on it!)! And speaking of awesome presents, her fiance got me a hula hoop for Christmas and I hula hooped outside of Starbucks for a good while.
This was probably my most random post, but it’s been a random month full of Jesus, proposals, Christmas cheer, and really fun things like type writers and hula hoops.
Until next time, lovelies.
