Today marks the last day of the first week of school. Granted it just started as I’m writing this but still. I am quickly getting back into the swing of things with classes, chapel, and friends. Chapel is my favorite thing about Bob Jones honestly. Each day I get to go and sing hymns with 3000 other people, listen to solid preaching, and learn more about Christ. Today Dr. Pettit, our president, announced the chapel series for this semester. There are two, one on Monday and one on Wednesday. The other days are just random sermons or other events held in chapel. Monday is going to be a study through James and the wisdom of God. Wednesday is going to be on the Holy Spirit. I am super excited for both of these and I’ll probably share some of my notes on here.

I am very much enjoying being around my friends again this week. I already filled up all my dinners next week with people I need to get a meal with! I have been spending evenings with Luke part of the time and Abbigayle, who hasn’t been doing well medically, the other part. Abbigayle has many chronic conditions and so I always make sure I save part of my day to sit with her and cheer her up. I found out that I have two classes with my best guy friend, other than Luke, Camden and I’m really happy about it. He is basically my big brother and is such an encouraging human to be around.

The best part about my week is that I am getting back into doing daily devotions. I slacked off over break and wasn’t consistent at all (which was not a wise decision on my part). Now I am doing them again, at breakfast, and enjoying it so much. I am currently reading through the book of 1 Corinthians. Luke is as well and when we are finished we will be able to compare our notes and talk about it. I am really glad that God has blessed me with a boyfriend who is more than happy to spend time in Scripture and prayer with me. Personally, I am also reading a psalm a day which can be very comforting when having a rough day, which thankfully none of those have happened yet.

I will talk to y’all later. I hope you have a glorious weekend. Go spread some love!

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God. — Psalm 43:5
