Change is not easy but absolutely necessary. I have changed. I feel it. With every aching muscle, with every tap on the keyboard; with every deadline I’ve scaled through; with every new thought; with every new environment… I can say I have changed. Change may not look good but after a while, it feels really good.

School kicked off two months ago and I had all shades of fears. Fear of being alone; of starting again; of failure; of making new friends; of fitting in; of being without my family and more! I couldn’t even last a week in my new apartment because of the fears- of roaches especially! LOL.

I was afraid of change. But then, who isn’t?

 Behind the fear was a tinge of excitement; of starting something new; of being a part of something bigger than me; of being right where God would have me. Besides, he’s always said:

Have I not told you? Be strong and have strength of heart! Do not be afraid or lose faith. For the Lord your God is with you anywhere you go. -Josh 1:9

It’s two months now. It’s been tasking, it’s been bumpy; it’s been enlightening; it’s been overwhelming. But I know I have changed. I have grown. I’ve made friends. I’ve learned some more. And now I can say, change isn’t so bad after all. Matter of fact, it’s beautiful!

Sorry I know I’ve been MIA and I’m not happy about it. I’ll try to post more often. I’ve missed you guys! Any new changes with you? I  would like to know more about it.

Lots of love,

  1. It’s so good to have you back M! I’ve missed your posts for sure. I’ve definitely had a change, as I have recently broken my arm and had to have surgery. Writing is hard and now I finished my fall semester. I am getting ready for my internship and so many amazing, yet frightening things are happening. I am excited though, as I know God is doing amazing things!


    1. Hey Emily! So good to hear from you. Sorry about your broken arm, I pray for total restoration. I’m super excited about the new phase of your life and the internship. Would be looking forward to hearing more!


  2. And we’ve missed you too.

    Change, I dislike very much but it’s inevitable. The best to trust and believe He’s got me and I’ve got nothing to worry about.

    You’ll be fine Jay and congratulations (if I haven’t said that already)
