I just wanted to check in. My mom doesn’t have internet, so I haven’t been able to blog as much-well sort of, I’ll get to that in a minute.
Lots has happened since I’ve been on. I totaled my car by hitting a deer, but that’s okay. The best blessings usually happen in disguise. The place I moved to has car inspections, unlike the place I moved from. Couldn’t exactly get away with driving a clunker. So 2 car loans later, I closed on a 2012 focus thus resulting in me getting a second job which I haven’t done since high school. However, I’m looking forward to it because the biggest blessings usually happen in disguise. I know that everything will work out. But I’m not here to talk about that.
Since moving with my mom to a different state in October, I’ve been looking for a church. I’ll admit, I’ve been slacking alot. I was going to this one church that seemed to be really cool but it lacked fellowship, which is the number one thing I look for in a church.
One night, I was at work. These girls sat in my section, a couple of them wanted alcohol but because our liquor laws are weird, they had to sit elsewhere and were no longer in my section. However, we carried on a conversation like we had known each other for forever. Out of nowhere one of the girls was like you should check out our church sometimes! I was blown away because I had been looking for a church but at the same time not really putting in a lot of effort in finding one. Mainly because I have been working Sunday mornings but all that is about to change being that I’m getting a second job.
They were telling me about this small group thing that they had going on every Tuesday at 7pm. At that point in time, I didn’t know what my schedule would be like. I connected with a few of the girls on facebook and told them I’d let them know. Sure enough, I had Tuesday off. So I went. And I LOVED it! It wasn’t too big and it was cozy. We talked about Romans 1-4. We didn’t read it out loud, because the group is more of a way to hold each other accountable. I learned that we typically read certain chapters on our own time and then meet to discuss it.
Also, while at this small group study I came to a realization. My mom doesn’t have internet, so that’s an excuse as to why I haven’t been blogging. I tell myself I’ll blog at my Grandma’s but it typically never happens. While at this small group, I realized…how many times have I turned my iPhone into a personal hotspot to watch YouTube videos or binge watch Friends on Netflix? Too many to count. So why not turn my phone into a personal hotspot to blog? Granted the service isn’t the best, but it’s better than nothing at all.
I really need to get back into the swing of things. Then again, I’m not perfect. No one is.
I have Sunday morning off this week and I’m looking forward to checking out the church service. I still miss my old church, but when God closes one door, He opens another one.
