i was looking at plane tickets out to LA the other day. my dream school for physical therapy is Azusa Pacific University and they are having an open house on April 3rd that i would love to go to and see.
lately though it seems like plans just keep changing. i really have absolutely no idea where i will be in a year and a half. in life or in location. a lot can happen...a lot can change. one thing i am sure of though is that God has a plan. i went to a really great Bible study the other night and we started reading James 1 for what seems the bajillionth time, but there were plenty of things i am still finding new ways to look at.
the biggest thing i am trying to remember is that when you aren't really sure what's going to happen next, when you are just having an okay day...you don't have to be perky and happy. that's not what joy is about. being joyful is being honest with those around you and knowing that trials happen, but you have a God with a plan leading the way. taking heart in that promise and continuing on in your day holding strong to it is having joy. you don't have to hide your feelings but you must rejoice in the promises God has made you.
