Senior year....hello, where did you come from?

I have been back to Moody for a week now and it still hasn't really hit me that this is my last year here. The first time someone asked me what year I was it sounded so weird to say senior. I'm really excited for this year but so nervous at the same time.
Last night was Vespers, which is where the whole student body gathers for dinner, worship, and a charge to start off the year. It is probably one of my favorite student gatherings.It is so nice because at this point everyone is still super excited for the school year. I realized as we gathered that this was the first of the lasts of my time at Moody. It made me sad and excited all at the same time. During the worship, I found myself reflecting on God's faithfulness in my life over the past 3 years. God has been so faithful in providing, protecting, healing, etc. in my life during my time at Moody and as I look back I see where I really took that for granted. As I think about this school year to come I have worried about so much. Will there be enough money for my school bill? Will the bed bug problem ever go away? Do I stay in jenkins or go back to houghton? Will I become disconnected not living on the floor with my closest friends?  etc....  All of these thoughts crossed my mind yet in the midst of worship at Vespers while singing "How Great is Our God" I realized that my worries were for nothing. God is so great and he takes those worries and burdens and carries them for us. He has been faithful thus far so I know he will be faithful still.
This year will be challenging as I struggle with these worries and uncertainties but even if I am unsure about anything else one thing is for sure....God is faithful through and through. 

"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

A pic with some of my favorite people from Vespers. I am looking forward to a fun year with these girls!


Ab is at MOODY!!! I am so excited to explore the city and enjoy life here with her. This was her first Vespers and my last Vespers.
