Fourth day in Nashville and I don't want to leave...

Althought the weather is a little crappy, I love this city. It's gorgeous and is so comforting. It's great to have a vacation away from the realities of life and Lubbock for a while!

So far...

I've developed a new obsession with the show How I Met Your Mother (so hilarious and fun, I will be introducing this to my dad when I get home... He would love it!)

Speaking of my dad, I miss him a ton... It's tough not being in the same town as him while he is all drugged up and saying things he would never say. haha... Really though, I wish I was there to take care of him... He's a tough man though!

I experienced a Vandy baseball game with some fellow Lubbockites, which was fun but freezing!
Saw those same friendlies in Franklin yesterday... Yay for frozen yogurt, cupcakes and fun shops!!

I have been to every coffee shop in Nashville I believe... When I'm with Mallory, I think that's all we do... coffee coffee coffee!!

Saw Remember Me last night, super good... I highly recommend it!

Looks like today we will be going to REI (love) and just hanging out on the first nice day since I've been here!

I just love the whole atmosphere of this city! So busy but peaceful at the same time, weird explanation, but you just have to come here and experience it first hand! I think I could live here, but then again, I want to live everywhere!

There will be more posts and pictures to come!!

Love you all :]

Beautiful by Kari Jobe

My prayer for the day...

"Here before Your altar
I am letting go of all I've held
Of every motive, every burden
Everything that's of myself

And I just wanna wait on You, my God
I just wanna dwell on who you are

Beautiful, Beautiful
Oh, I am lost for more to say
Beautiful, Beautiful
Oh Lord You're beautiful to me

Here in Your presence
I am not afraid of brokenness
To wash Your feet with humble tears
I would be poured out till nothing's left

And I just wanna wait on You, my God
I just wanna dwell on who You are

Holy, Holy, Holy You are, You are."

He truly is beautiful! This girl can sing... Go check her out!

Quotes like these have filled my soul with so much joy and wonder lately:

"Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may
not understand at the time."
-Oswald Chambers

"The Son reflects God's own glory, and everything about Him represents God
exactly. He sustains the universe by the mighty power of His
command. After He died to cleanse us from the stain of sin, He sat
down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God of
-Hebrews 1:3

Lately I have been filled with the wonder and mystery of Christ. He is so immeasurable and incomprehensible, it amazes me! He has really been teaching my heart about trust. Trust that He is sovereign. Trust that His plan is good. Trust that He works for my good and His glory. Trust that He holds everything together. Trust in Him and Him alone. Trust is a hard thing to grasp. The basis of trust has to be faith. We must remember that God is faithful at all times and so worthy for us to put our faith in Him. As the quote said above: Faith is deliberate. Faith is something we have to work at, being conscious on our every move. I believe that trust is the same way. We really have to work at trusting that God is sovereign and can take care of every aspect of our lives. It's tough, but so rewarding. With faith and trust in God, there is no room for worry or uneasiness. When are hearts begin to fill uneasy or our minds begin to worry, we are doubting the sovereignty of Christ. We are doubting that He is above all things and has planned out every instance. I am so guilty of doing those things, but He is really working my heart in that place. He is helping me to realize that worry and uneasiness is a sin and completely selfish. He is making me see how self demanding I am, instead of self sacrificing. What a humbling place to be. I must surrender my all to Him, because He knows me better than I know myself. He is trustworthy. He is sovereign. Something that a good friend reminded me of is that God is SEATED! He is seated on His throne in heaven. How wonderful!

"For the Lord God is our light and protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will the Lord withhold from those who do what is right. O Lord Almighty, happy are those who trust in
-Psalm 84:11-12

Love you all :]
