I Forgot About Blogging

Goodness, I forgot about this thing. There's a huge jump from July to September - I need to make a list:

-I finished my externship and left there feeling so encouraged and so blessed.
-I almost got a tattoo but that was put on the back burner.
-I packed up my life in one day.
-Moved into IWU. Mom came to help.
-Started ARD training. Reunited with Noelle.
-RAs came. Such a great group. So grateful and so excited for what's to come.
-Spent some great time with the Lord throughout training.
-Decided to take a class with Jim Lo this semester.
-I live with Abbey now. Loving her. I have been so blessed by roommates in my college years.
-School started. Critical care. Oh boy.
-I love when I start to have a routine again.
-Mach and I learned how to start IVs on each other.
-We also started our clinical in Indy on Saturdays. One down, and I already learned so so much!
-Jim Lo class - SUCH a good idea. I am going to get pushed and disciplined all at the same time.
-The residents in BECKETT hall are so great. It is so great to see how different each group of girls are over the years.
-Loretta is a senior in high school, and Lindsay and I are going to help get her ready for college!
-I have started to crave running. I never thought I would live to see the day. I literally find myself looking for time to run in the day.

God has been teaching me so much on dependence and trusting Him fully. It is a constant lesson, and one that is not perfected in a matter of a few days. If I had to describe the last two months in a picture,
this would be it. I keep reminding myself of Psalm 86:11 too,

"Teach me your way O Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name." 

Sometimes I only want to give parts of my heart, I divide it up and give Him the easier areas. But I need to be giving Him an undivided heart - full of every single area of my life and every single person in my life. That is just not the easiest sometimes, but He is so faithful, and I am really working on it. I have only been in Indiana for about a month, and I already have seen so much growth in myself. I am excited to see what's to come.
