Woah, we’re half way there

Woah, livin’ on a prayer

Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear

Woah, livin’ on a prayer

My apologies if that song is stuck in your head for the rest of the day, but these Bon Jovi lyrics are ringing with truth as the halfway point to internship is here.

6 months gone and 6 months to go.

The start of January marks many things. An old year gone. A new year started. Month 6 of my internship. New goals to reach. Activities to plan. Trips to prepare for. The list goes on and on. I find myself thinking that this year is going to be gone in the blink of an eye and I’ll be crossing the stage graduating before I know it.

I didn’t think I’d be one of those people who look back and sappily reflect on the past year…who am I kidding, of course I am…so sorry, but here it is. The past few months have been packed with many emotions. Excitement, fear, anxiety, peace, some sadness, joy, happiness, and love. There have been countless unknowns. There are many more unknowns to face as the next few months go on, but time and again the Lord has shown his faithfulness in all situations.

I have seen the Lord put my unease to rest. I didn’t think I’d make it through the first month without breaking down, but I did. I didn’t think I’d be able to do a children’s message without having a full on panic attack, but I have. I didn’t think I’d connect with the youth as much as I have. Seriously, the kids I work with are some of the most amazing people I know. I know that I don’t have to worry about the unknowns because God’s got it! So that is my goal for the rest of this year. I’m not going to let my anxiety take over as the second half of internship is starting. God is good. He is faithful. His love is forever and that is all I need to know. It’s all I need. Period.

Cheers to the second half of internship y’all! We’re halfway there!
