Hi sweet friends!!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
I do know from speaking to some of you that this summer has had its challenges. This life is not easy. We all know that. We have days that are easier to get out of bed than others. We have days when all we want to do is give in to the parts of us that say we’re not good enough and the parts that tell us to just give up. And days that the drama and chaos of life threaten to swallow us whole.
I just want to encourage you all that when we start to have these days and feel this way, we have to run to The Word. We need food and when we don’t eat we feel tired and weak and sometimes hangry. It’s the same when we don’t fill ourselves with The Word. God wants to remind us of His promises and His love through His Word.
The verse that has echoed through my thoughts since I left the states is Psalm 61:2, “From the ends of the Earth I call to you, when my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I” !!!
Oh what a God we have that is so much higher and greater than we are! That we don’t have to rely on our own strength to survive this life because we just can’t without His!

I have learned so much from my summer in East Asia and I cannot wait to come back to Statesboro and be reunited with my boro family. I am so excited to walk alongside you all in faith this next year!

Anyways I just wanted to encourage y’all to keep pushing, even when it’s tough. And run to the Word when the world pushes you away. I love y’all oh so much!!
