Favorite quote {challenge day 4}

Hi guys! oh my goodness, sorry I have been so all over the place with blogging lately. My schedule has been crammed pack with figuring out where I'm living next year, helping my parents find a house to buy (they recently sold the house that our family grew up in) and getting ready to graduate from college! I cannot believe I am FINALLY going to graduate. 42 days!!!! The countdown is ON. I'm so thrilled. It honestly doesn't even seem real. It has been 4 years filled with laughter, handwork, tears, FUN, a lot of stress, and a whole load more of emotions. Anyways, onto the challenge, (again, sorry this is so late, I should have posted this morning but I literally didn't have ANY time!) Hectic Hectic life for this gal lately.

Well, first things first, if you know me you know that I LOVE the Lion King! It is one of my absolute favorite Disney movies. I love this quote because it just simply reflects the truth. Rafiki is so loving yet stubborn with getting this point across to Simba in the movie. I too like Simba, used to run away from my past, because I was scared to face all of my mistakes and admit that I was actually unhappy with the person that I had become. I didn't believe I could learn anything by having the courage to FACE the heartache and problems surrounding my life. Once Jesus came into my life and I began to walk with Him, He gave me the courage to face my absolute fear of reflecting on my past. He gave me a completely new perspective on my past, by helping me understand how much it had hurt both me and Him. He gave me this new perspective because He didn't want me to go back to my past, He saw how dark it was and how the enemy had stolen my real identity in Christ.  He wanted to give me LIGHT and JOY. Our pasts can teach us a lot, so don't be afraid to reflect on your mistakes and use them as an opportunity to grow and move forward in a better direction.

Anyways, that about sums up my favorite quote. I have many of them, but this one is definitely a personal favorite of mine. Midterms are on the Horizon for this lady! I'll try to post as much as I can this week but I might be a little inactive. I am in the process of responding to all of your lovely comments, and I can't wait to finish doing that once this week of midterms are over! I am loving the process of getting to know you guys and following your blogging adventures! I love all of your hearts for God. :)

Ps- My parents said I could super-likely-possibly be getting a new camera (like a really nice canon) for my graduation present!!!! AHHHHH!!!! I will die of joy. Okay I won't really die, but I will be so thankful. What a huge blessing that would be. There is just something that is so wonderful to me about photography. Especially now that I am blogging, it makes me want a super nice camera even more.

Have a blessed evening!

Love y'all!
