In August, the beginning of this school year, I got to see my favorite band, Johnnyswim, in concert for the first time and it was a magical experience. It was in a small intimate setting, that created a perfect environment for all the feels. One of my favorite songs of theirs is called Adelina, and there is this lyric that I find myself meditating on:
“I don’t know whats coming, but its gonna be good, gonna be good…”
Like all good worship moments, the bridge repeats itself, and you settle in knowing you’re going to be here for a while. I stood there with tears running down my face really chewing 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. Not because I was overwhelmed by life and school, or heartbroken and frustrated, but 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. 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.
