This Is Only A Mountain

DSCN0110Man, oh man, it’s good to be back writing again.  I haven’t been on here for quite some time, but I think it’s perfectly acceptable with Christmas and whatnot.

Anyway, I spent January 2-6 in Colorado.  I was soaking in all the magnificent beauty of CO in a great lodge called Glen Eryie, or The Glen.  Like, there was a legit castle on the grounds…I’m just saying.  It was so beautiful.

I got to go with the BSU from my college, and it was such a great experience.  I really think it strengthened me as a Christian and as a college student.  I was blessed to be able to meet new people, explore my thoughts and doubts, and build a great community with people with whom I go to school.

I don’t want to blab on about what went down, but I think I must.  God always provides, which He definitely did on the way over.  Our bus was having major tire troubles, and we got stranded in Kansas for two hours longer than anyone wants to stay in Kansas (no offense, Kansas residences).  But, God got us there safe and sound, just a little late.

We got to hear some great speakers who were full of wisdom and strength, which was I think, just what I needed.  It was really awesome to get tips on how to strengthen devotional time with God, being made in His image, and different seminars like that.  I realized everyone is pretty much in the same boat I am with struggles and fears, and we are able to overcome it together.

We not only got to learn and absorb knowledge from so many great people, we got to go exploring as well.  I climbed a mountain! Well, a sort of mountain…it was really high up for me, okay?  I overcame a huge fear of mine by doing this and it was awe-inspiring.  And we got to go shopping, which is always a plus.

All-in-all, it was a fantastic trip and I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for me this coming semester. (Pictures to come!) God bless,

Paige
