When I think about the people I appreciate most in the world, I have very little recollection of when we first met. Usually I don't remember the event at all. I had no way of knowing how important they'd become; no light bulb, no audible 'click' as personalities fell into place. It just kind of happens over time and it's wonderful.
“Well I guess it’s only life, it’s only natural;
We all spend a little while going down the rabbit hole.
I’ve been down the very road you’re walking now,
It doesn’t have to be so dark and lonesome;
It takes a while but we can figure this thing out
And turn it back around.”—
Getting ready to leave the house voluntarily (not for work/exam) for the first time in a week and a half. I think this is a staying-home record and it’s been so restful, just what I needed after end of semester stress :)
I have a lot more to say, but I think I need to keep my nonexistent love life ranting off the internet. It’s going to get me in trouble one day.
I’m interested in many things and passionate about precious few.
However, one thing that I’m loving more and more is getting to know Jesus through studying the Bible. It’s been absolutely incredible the last couple of years, the encouragement I’ve gotten, the things I’ve learned. I still have so, so far to go but I’m loving (nearly) every moment.
Something I’m trying to grow in is communicating this passion with others. As an introvert, it is a huge struggle to connect with others - firstly at a mere friendship level - and then deeply enough to share something so close to my heart. It’s something I’ve wished away for many years, but I’ve finally come to the point where wishing is not enough. Today I took the plunge and started asking other Christian introverts how they overcome this challenge on a day to day basis. It’s time to deal with this.
I’ll always be shy, and that’s okay, but I will control my shyness. It will not control me!
Well, that got off track… Summary: Jesus. Bible. Communicating those to others. Preferably not always in dot points.
“No natural feelings are high or low, holy or unholy, in themselves. They are all holy when God’s hand is on the rein. They all go bad when they set up on their own and make themselves into false gods.”—
