The LORD is my ultimate comforter

Lately I have been feeling really alone here in Eugene. Maybe it has been exemplified these past fews days after being with Gavin where I never felt alone or anything. Honestly, I get wrapped up in what I am missing in SLO. I see what my friends are doing in the place where I want to be, and to be straight I get jealous and covet what they have and are doing. For a while I have just kind of felt bad for myself and had little pity parties for myself up here (really lame, I know). But I have come to realize, with the help of a person or two, that this is not what God wants for me. He didn’t bring me back up here so that I could spend a year or even a summer just sitting around feeling bad for myself. Why am I coveting what other people are doing if the Lord’s plan is perfect and I am right where He wants me? That is basically like saying “God I’m not really happy with your plan. I think I could have thought of something better.” When in actuality that is CRAZINESS!!

So these past few days have been just realizing all of this and recognizing sin where I had been reluctant to before. Also, I think it has been hard because I feel like I have to have it all together, like I have to be strong and I have to make it. When in reality I need to acknowledge that I need help, I don’t have the strength to make it through this situation, or life, on my own. I need Christ. So with that these verses (2 Cor. 12:9-10) have been a great comfort and truth and reminder that when I am weak the Lord is strong and He can be so glorified in this situation!

“God said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Cor. 12:9-10
