Villanova just had its graduation this past weekend. Although the weather turned convocations into crap shows, it’s also the graduation that I was most excited for. My freshmen are now officially alumni.
You know what that means?
I’m friggin old, LOL. I can’t believe it’s now been three full years since I’ve graduated.
I also think that this means it’s time for a 3-year check in.
I wish I could take down notes when I’m having a verbal conversation. My thoughts are messy and I feel like I can’t remember half the thoughts I had.
Time to just word vomit.
Hehe. Sorry. Couldn’t help myself.
I have been wanting to write this post for weeks now. Ah, better late than never, right? Then again, this isn’t anything new (lulz).
Why did it even take me so long to get to this? It’s not like I was planning on making this a long post. Ok, ANYWAYS.
She told me that I need to relinquish control to God. She’s right, I know. But why does it have to be so dang difficult to do that?
As I drove to church yesterday morning, I felt a pang of guilt while singing along to praise music. I felt like a liar, like an impostor.
I originally had this draft started back in July…
Then poop hit the fan and I fell apart. And, I had little motivation to continue this post because the sentiment was no longer true.
I guess you could say that it’s relevant again. Though, I originally had a more upbeat tone when I started this last year (my title was originally “The Best News Possible”).
I definitely recommend Single, Gay, Christian: A Personal Journey of Faith and Sexual Identity to people.
I will avoid the topic of homosexuality/same-sex marriage like the plague. It’s just one of those topics thatI feel won’t go well with non-believers. With believers, even if they believe in same-sex marriage, at least we’re working off the same general foundation of Scripture and God. At least, I can share my viewpoint, knowing that I can share Scripture. For a non-believer, what validity would the bible have in a conversation?
But, it’s a topic that I think would find less frightening if I was better educated.
I was all set on what to write about today. Was finally going to get to some backed up blog ideas. Then bam. Sermon hits me right in the gut.
And between you and me, I wasn’t expecting myself to care too much about today’s sermon. Well, turned out that I couldn’t put my pen down.
After my post from yesterday morning, I went to service and got rocked by the sermon.
I’ve been feeling a bit uninspired lately. I’m getting back into devotionals and prayers, but they’ve been difficult (mostly the praying part). I think that I need to start writing them again.
I’m also just too tired to think and write by the end of the day, when I have time to use however I want. But, with this week, I’m only getting busier and I wanted to write, since I got to work from home today and therefore, have some leftover energy.
This is something that’s been on my mind for the past few months, but again, I’ve been uninspired. Hopefully, this post doesn’t end up being insipid.
