As I lay here in my softly lit home wrapped in the same Care Bear blanket that I have clutched all of my life, I think about what comes with walking into my Junior year of college. So much has changed in the two years I’ve spent there already. So much more even beyond that. So I pray.
I sit closely with Jesus. “Who will you have this year?” you asked me. “Jesus,” I say without a thought.
What have I learned of myself? I’m a cancer survivor. That means a lot more than I ever thought it could.
What do I hold onto? Love; it wins.
And what was the biggest lesson? Something simple. A reminder, I suppose.
Jesus will never leave me nor forsake me. He desires me. He is obsessed with me. He KNOWS me. And, Jesus? Absolutely loves me.
It’s as simple as that. And that changes everything about everything.
This summer was perfect in those lessons.
…because love wins.
