Over the past few weeks, as I end another semester of college, as I spend time with absolutely precious friends and family, and as I draw closer and closer to the Lord, He’s been revealing some things to me. Some things that won’t be shared on here (because even bloggers need some privacy), and some things that will eventually be shared. Through these few weeks, different Scriptures or quotes have just blown me away. So instead of trying to fluff it up or say it any better, let me encourage you with some great thoughts that I’ve read or heard recently. Because, the people who wrote it/spoke it are the ones who really said it best.
