I’m back at college now. This second semester is full of art classes, snow, and friends meeting and converging around schedules. Even with the negative temperatures and long walks on frozen pavement it is good to be back. There is just something about working together, in community, toward a fixed goal. We are all here with a common purpose, which is to learn and to grow in academics and towards our Creator.
The more knowledge I possess, the more I am in awe of the intricacies of creation. The wealth and depth of understanding that we can unearth together as we determine to learn is a beautiful thing. As I learn academically, I am compelled more and more to draw closer to the God who designed all of this.
Today, as I was reading my Bible, I came across Psalm 42:7-8. It said:
7 Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.
8 By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
God orchestrates the universe and causes it to be. As each day passes and my semester becomes more and more chaotic, He is the steadfast rock to fasten my eyes on. There is nothing that can separate me from His presence if I let Him saturate my existence — drowning in His grace that brings me life.
