"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation." - Psalm 91:14-16

I've always loved to journal. For one: it helps me get my thoughts sorted out and on paper. Two: I love to write. Three: I love looking back on old journal entries.

Most of my journal entries consist of written down prayers and scriptures I was reading at the time. I love looking back at old prayers and being reminded of God's faithfulness. I just read a prayer I wrote back in September and one in November. They both consisted of me pretty much crying out to God and asking him to rescue me (in one form or another)... I was pretty miserable down at school by that point... and it was neat to look back just a few months and see how he has totally answered my desperate prayers, and brought me to a completely new place in such a short amount of time.

He's just cool like that.

Another observation I made today... I'm in Riverside right now, visiting friends. I hadn't been back to CBU since moving my stuff out of the apartments. Driving onto campus yesterday felt surprisingly freeing. There was no longer stress and struggle associated with the school, because I don't go there anymore! It was a nice feeling. No worries about papers or presentations, just getting to be there to enjoy the amazing friends that God has blessed me with. That's what I call a good day.
