Genesis 2:1-3:Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
So grateful for a long weekend. A getaway from school. Grateful that I did not stay in my room doing homework or trying to study. I actually managed to forget about homework, not worry, and just let go. I need that peace everyday! *note to self* Thankful that I had the chance to be with people whom I’ve barely known for a year – but feel like family already. I honestly do not know how God is this generous. Days like these don’t come often, but I know that I can look back and remind myself of God’s goodness.
Well. School really starts now. Test,s quizzes and what nots. Yet. I am eternally grateful to be called higher, to depend more and more on His strength.
i have a tonne of things to check of my to-do list,
But all I can do right now is just sit here, listen to Sleeping at Last aka emo music, stare out into the night and think of how cool it would be if I could be in AZ.
Ah that life of disappointment is a stranger to me now.
Because if you learn to rely on the One that never fails – life will never be a disappointment.
Grateful for alone time and grateful for my best best Friend who follows me wherever I go.
Remember that, Eugenia.
This is Kendra. I met her barely 3 months ago but I love her so much already. In many ways she has been such a blessing to me. She has been like my “little” sister – no I’m kidding. But her love for God inspires to always pursue God with all my heart.
From my brief friendship with Kendra I can say this about her.
Kendra is kind, she is determined- to love God and love others. Kendra is full of joy and caring. But most of all Kendra’s child like faith and love for God is extraordinary.
Happy 19th birthday, to this wonderful life I have a privilege to be a part of.
Love you Kendra Sy!
Today would not have happened without:
German Chocolate cupcakes – courtesy of Crimson and Cream (so good)
Laura – brought party hats for everyone and a tiara for the Birthday girl! 🙂
Last but not least – mastermind behind everything. Nosi! She planned and made tonight happened. So blessed and thankful for this year wonderful lady ❤️
So, Happy birthday Kendra!

so I just had to blog. It’s 230am and I just had IHOP for the first time! Yeah Murica. Also, I’ve just had the best day yet.
Started off the day asking God for favor when we met with the bursar to try to waive our late charges. After class I headed over and kept asking God for favor. True enough when we met with Miss Janice, she immediately waived the charges and got our receipts in a second. I barely needed to explain why I needed the charges waived. I was so happy and shocked at how smooth the whole process went. Finally being able to pay fees was a huge relief off of my back. And on top of that, in faith I went to the bank the day before and took out the exact balance without the extra 1.5% and if they didn’t waive it I would have to make another trip to Chase. Wow.
Then I went to the bookstore and got a shirt that was wrongly priced – but I got it for the cheaper price anyways! 🙂 🙂
But to top it all off – Encounter tonight was PHENOMENAL. No other word to describe what just happened. We spent the few hours soaking, prophesying and ministering into each other. Oh so powerful. God keeps reminding me how He has taken care of me throughout my high school/running days and He’ll do the same here. Afterwards Rin and Chad prayed over me. Rin got a word for me about being a bright fire and Chad had a funny picture of me cupping water in my palms. Hmm I have to pray about that for sure. But man oh man.
It gets better.
I got to play foosball with the awesome bunch. And while that was happening, everyone was buzzing on about IHOP (cause international pancake day!). Then suddenly, OU texted/called that classes were cancelled for the whole of today!!!! Which means tests are going to be rescheduled but yay!!
So IHOP was a no go. Headed over to Hannah’s to grab her laptop and some coffee. Then we went to the house Joel and Jarred stayed for a week / house sitting to have worship. Man! Greg was there too. It was so awesome. The word spoken over the group tonight:
- We are going to be excellent in sharing Gods love
- People are going to want to be near us and we are gonna make an impact on campus
- Greg said that worship was like the 7th walk around Jericho. We didn’t need to do anything yet the walls broke down. All we needed was to praise Him.
Encounter and worship afterwards – was indescribable. God came down and poured out into so many hungry hearts today – surreal.
We did IHOP! And hence why I’m just writing this now. 🙂 pancakes was good.
I’m so excited that good days like these are going to be a norm – and I’m claiming that. More favored days ahead!! 🙂 🙂
So thank You Jesus. For you tell us to worry not and rest in You. We know every good and wonderful thing comes from You alone. Lest we forget.
I know I was suppose to blog about fullness but I’m feeling so bummed. Test results are coming in and I totally flunked two of my major courses – it’s not that I didn’t study or anything cause I really did! Yet I just either don’t understand what I’m doing, or I figured it out but don’t get it when questions are changed.
Funny thing is, I went to the action center for physics and this dude who never took Physics his whole life – who doesn’t know how to calculate acceleration from a graph – yeah we he totally scored way higher than mine. Like how is that even possible?
Seriously don’t know what’s happening. I need to study smart, but I don’t know how.
But God turns around the worst situations for the best – so there is my silver lining.
Oh the irony of resting that I learned in fullness: to let go and let God, but sometimes all I can see is everything else that God doesn’t. So today I’m going to declare that my grades do not define me. Especially not a test grade. It will not limit or stop me from ace-ing my final exams and future tests. Today onwards I will study smart – even if I don’t know how, the Holy Spirit will be my teacher.
Grace days – endured.
I had 3 meals today. This is historic, this deserves a post.
