Today is the day that i have been looking forward to for a really really long time. Everyone always tells you to enjoy high school, because it goes by fast. I never believed them until this moment right now. Where did the last four years go? wow. The last four years have brought me pain, heartache, struggle, loss of friends, and death of loved ones. Because of these things i hit rock bottom many, many times. I never thought i would get out of rock bottom many of the times, but i'm still here and kickin, so i must have gotten out. I must say that if it weren't for my amazing friends and family, and above all else, my Gracious God, i would have never made it through this time. For the many friends i lost, i gained many amazing strong ones that will stand with me through thick and thin. For all the deaths over the past years, i have learned to love every single moment i spend with loved ones. Life is short and unexpected things come up, so live as best as you can while you are here.
The one word that can sum up the whole last 12 years of my existence in public school: GRACE
I am a human. I am sinful, i have screwed up more than most. I do not deserve to still be standing on God's earth. But that's the point. NONE of us deserve to be standing here. None of us deserve to have a personal relationship with the one and only amazing Creator of all. We do not deserve what God has given us, But it is already given. Grace is not earned, just like it is not deserved. I stand in utmost awe of the fact that I can still Worship my King because of his amazing grace.
The next step in my life is a massive step into the unknown. It will be filled with fear, but I know that i am being led by God, and he will use me wherever i go. I also know that no matter what happens, He will always Love me, Lead me, and give me sufficient Grace.
