His Yes Girls Family,
Happy Thursday! It has been a little while since I have written to you all. In May I finished up the semester in Alpine and after finishing one summer class I will officially be a Sul Ross State University grad! I have recently moved back home and gotten a job, I will continue my education at the University of Texas at San Antonio in the Fall. Today I am headed to take the GMAT but felt compelled to write a few things before I take the test at 10:30 this morning.
Over this past month I have not been studying the Bible as heavily as I usually do and I have not been writing, it’s like each time I sat down to write the words just wouldn’t come to me like they always do. It was a bit frustrating at first but I did learn from this and learn to enjoy it. I didn’t enjoy it because I wanted to be lazy and not write, actually I tried not to let myself become complacent in not writing but I felt that God took me away from HYG for a little while. Writing is what I love to do and it brings me to my happy place. I can write letters to people and tug at their heartstrings or I can write something that will make them laugh out loud…this is just an awesome gift that God has chosen to bless me with, and I choose to embrace it. For a while this semester, my life was in turmoil because I wasn’t leaning on and trusting God with my whole heart. I think I trusted Him about 95% and I tried to trust Him 100% but it was hard. I didn’t know what I was going to do after college at Sul Ross and I didn’t know where I would land next. It was not until I took a step back from it all, including HYG, that I could hear and feel promptings about which way to walk and when to turn right or left. It was not until I took a step away that my faith grew that other 5%.
When God moves us into different seasons of life, things change. I once heard T.D. Jakes say that we are like little baby birds who don’t know that we can fly yet. God may tell us to fly but we think, “I can’t do that, are you crazy?” So God makes that nest so terribly uncomfortable that we have to get out–either by flying off on our own or having God push us out of the nest. God pushed me out of the nest and my life has transformed and moved into a new season, a season that I cannot yet define. But, this is a good thing so don’t worry.
Austi and I built HYG on our beliefs and with the understanding that we would be completely and utterly transparent with y’all in all parts of our lives. We weren’t too busy with life being Martha’s (Luke 10:38-42) that we couldn’t blog, we were just renewing, refreshing, and being moved into new seasons in both of our lives. This is something that does deserve an explanation to all of you who take time out of your lives to read what we write.
We love y’all dearly and can’t wait for you to see the changes currently taking places in our lives and some exciting projects for HYG coming down the pipeline.
Be Blessed and Favored, Today and Always
