Hello, hello! Oh this has been a crazy crazy school year. I am now on summer break and will head into my SENIOR (that’s right SENIOR) year of college in the fall. WHERE DID COLLEGE GO? More importantly, where did this year go!? Grab some popcorn because God has been learnin’ me a thing or two even in my bloggerly absence. I’m about to share some things God has taught me since I last posted.
1. Community is one of the most crucial things in our walks as Christians.
One thing I have desired probably since middle school (so about 8 or 9 years) was someone to one-on-one disciple me. I had strongly desired someone to pour into just me. I have this terrible habit of feeling like I’ll just be too much so I clam up a lot during group discussion times. Those of you that know me personally are probably like “LOL but Marisa you talk a lot” and I do. I can answer a question no problem but when it comes to being vulnerable, I clam up. I also am incredibly long winded anyways (in case no one’s noticed thus far) so I’m always scared of taking too long to answer a question. If I had a one on one interaction I would (within reason) have time to verbally process without feeling so silly. I was waiting for this to fall into my lap for the most part. Desiring it with an ache in my heart but I had absolutely no idea how ask or if it was appropriate for me to ask or most importantly who to ask.
