“Help Me Find It”- Sidewalk Prophets

I just found this song today. I was looking for a good song, and it popped up on my listener survey with 95.1. It is a perfect fit for my latest post on being patient and content while I am feeling so restless.

The lyrics are:

I don’t know where to go from here
It all used to seem so clear
I’m finding I can’t do this on my own


When you are feeling restless…….

So today marks the 50 day countdown until I graduate from college. I have no idea how four years flew by, it feels like just yesterday I began my first year at Carroll Community College and met some amazing people in the Hill Scholars Program. Now I am about to graduate from the beautiful school that is Hood College.

You always hear the term senioritis, and man is it true. Every day that passes I feel like I am becoming more and more restless. Tonight at my women’s study I was talking to my good friend Naeisha about the mixed feeling about being ready to graduate and be done, but at the same time not ready to move into the real world.

But all I really want to do is leave. My current dream is to work on a cruise ship for a year or two, and I have pretty much applied to every position available. And I sit in my dorm and pray for God to take me away from here and make these days fly by. And anyone who knows me knows that I am a very impatient person.


Being Content

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and our friends are either very excited, or ready to strangle Cupid. Today’s post is mostly for my ladies out there, but I think guys can take something away from this as well.

I remember when I was younger, I loved reading Song of Songs, because it was so romantic! But now that I am older, I am able to take more away from the book.

The verse that has always stuck out to me actually appears three times in the book. “Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires” Song of Songs 2:7, 3:5, 8:4. I personally have had to say this verse to myself more times than I can count.

College is a weird time, because we have friends who are starting to pair off, and some are even getting married. And it is hard to believe that we are getting to the age where we may have already met our future spouse, which scares the Dickens out of me.
