Have you ever had those days and even weeks where you just feel so far away from God? Where you feel weighed down and overwhelmed by the world? Where the closeness of God and his peace are the last things that you feel? But then when I'm at my lowest point where I want to cry and can't go on anymore, when God points me back to himself and gives me the boost that I need. God never ceases to amaze me and show up. Today was no exception. God placed a friend in my life who noticed that I wasn't doing well and took the time to take me on a walk and she just listened as I poured out my heart and struggles to her.  Then later at night we had an impromptu Jesus talk and ended up walking to a lake and it was dark and foggy, but it was gorgeous with the lights beaming through the fog and the trees and we just stood there and admired God’s glory and majesty and I could just feel his peace overwhelming me and his presence was just so tangible I could feel it. We just stood out there admiring God and his beauty and singing songs and praise and worship to our creator. It was simply amazing! One of the best nights that I have ever had at college by far, just being able to let everything go and focus solely on God and take time just to sit in his presence and be encouraged it was so refreshing and amazing. I love it and I am so grateful for the amazing friends that God has placed in my life and for all the ways that they encourage me and point me back to my savior. I just want more of God and more of his greatness and love and presence in my life. I want to be filled with him, and I don’t just want it to be a Jesus high moment, I want it to be a way of life where I am constantly living passionately and in reckless abandon for my savior and loving him and feeling his presence. God knew exactly what I needed tonight and he showed me his love and care for me in a very tangible way through all the amazing friends he has brought into my life. My heart is full of gratitude and full of contentment and happiness as I sit in his presence and remember how awesome my God truly is! He is all I need! 

 "Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth. Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the LORD Himself is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations."
Psalm 100:1-5
