Alright, so its been 3-days since seeing my favorite band, Johnnyswim in concert. In August, the beginning of this school year, I got to see them in concert for the first time and it was a magical experience. It was in a small intimate setting, and it just gave me so many feels. One of my favorite songs of theirs is called Adelina, and I can remember hearing them sing:
“I don’t know whats coming, but its gonna be good, gonna be good…”
After they repeated that 3-4 times I decided this is officially worship time (lols) and I stood there with tears running down my face really meditating on the lyrics, sincerely hoping that whatever comes next is better than what I’ve been going through.
On Monday, almost 8 months later, I saw Johnnyswim in concert again. When they sang Adelina I teared up again, but not because I was overwhelmed by life and school, or heartbroken and frustrated. This time I cried because I was so proud of how far I’ve come. I stood there and reflected on all I’ve accomplished and gained this year because the Alysse 8 months ago had none of this planned. But you know what, I serve a great God and He is always working.
If this is you, then keep your head up and stay faithful to the Lord. He has plans bigger than you can even imagine but we must learn to operate on His time. Be encouraged, you are the Sun, and you will rise again.
