The last week has been extremely challenging for me. I'm still working hard to get into the swing of the new things in my life. I love my new job and feel so blessed to have it. God has truly answered prayers there and placed me on an amazing path of my life. Finding ways to balance every aspect of my life though is one of the most challenging things I've encountered. All the things I have a passion for are hard to come by, because time is gone. With class, climbing, praise band, power point, youth group, Dominican stuff, work, camp, social life and just trying to get organized, doing other things I love is out. Writing hasn't happened in a long time and the time just to sit and quiet myself is nonexistent. I've been reading the same book for a month. Even eating is questionable some days.
I really hope God gives me the discernment to pick out the things that are important and get rid of the activities that I don't have to do. I'm too much of a people pleaser, and I know God will use this experience as a faith journey and show me how to trust in Him and the things He wants me to do.
