Just a quick update. I’ve been pretty grateful this past week as I have continued with my treatment. I finished the partial hospitalization program on Friday. This week I just have therapy and a doctors appt. I’m on the road to healing and I could not be more grateful for that. The struggle is very real though and I still appreciate prayers. Another excitement that happened this week is that I reached my First goal of $3,000 in fundraising. I still have $5,500 to go, but I know God has provided so far and will continue to provide. Remember to visit my Fundraising Page located at the top of this blog to learn how to best donate.
Another thing I wanted to bring up is that I changed my blog name. It used to be “Journey to Mission School” now it’s “Mission School, Depression, & Grace”. I have realized my blog has evolved since I have first started it. I made it initially with the sole intent to blog about the Mission School and support my fundraising efforts. As that will still be the main focus of my blog, I also wanted to include my battle with depression in there. I realize a lot of my friends and family want to stay updated on how I am doing in that area of my life as well. This way I don’t have to relate every post to the mission school in some way. Although, I’m sure a majority of my posts will have to do with the school as that will be the main focus in my life.
With that said, the Mission School is coming up fast. Just a couple more weeks to get my stuff together before we move in. We have an open house this Thursday to check out where we are going to live. I’m getting incredibly excited. My heart kind of flutters every time I think about it. Our first couple day we will be going on a camping trip. I think this is such a great way for all of the students to get to know each other. It will also be a great opportunity to get away and truly begin our immersion into God’s word. I’ve learned you can experience a whole different side of God out in nature. Keep me and the rest of the students in your prayers as we prepare for this next chapter in our lives.
God is moving. Everywhere I see him. Daily I need him. Daily I need grace. I’m humbled to be a part of such an extraordinary plan. Even if I’m just a little piece of God’s plan, I’m still a piece. If the puzzle was missing a piece, it’s just not the same. I guess what I really want to say is I’m glad I’m still alive and able serve God. I’m glad I’m still alive to carry out God’s plan in my life. I’m glad God saved my life multiple time when I’ve tried to end it. He’s not finished with me yet. I’m glad I won’t be known as the girl who killed herself and I hope instead to be know as a girl who loved the Lord and did everything she could to help others experience that same love. Yes, I’m happy to be alive. Praise the Lord.
I’m excited to be able to share these thoughts and experiences with people that love me.
Stay encouraged my friends.
