“Because you have made the Lord your safe place, and the Most High that place where you live, nothing will hurt you. No trouble will come near your tent.” Psalm 91:9-10
As an executive officer in my sorority, I am able to come in contact with women from all walks of life. Specifically, being the Director of Standards and Ethics gives me the opportunity to extend God's grace to those in need. What I have found out however, is that through this position, God has been extending grace to me.
As this semester started, I was already weighted down with stress. A tough major, job, sorority, and a bad break up had already started to work at my faith. If all this wasn't enough, I had to have a meeting with a member of my sorority who was suffering from an eating disorder. Talk about God giving me a mission...but of course, He always pulls through.
Although I wasn't able to relate to what this woman was going through, I was able to try my hand at some Godly wisdom. I told her that maybe God was using this struggle of hers to reveal himself to her. Sometimes God just knocks us down so hard, the only place we have to look is up. As the words came out of my mouth, God and I bumped knuckles. It happened. Really.
I realized that throughout all these problems I was having this semester, God has continuously been there waiting on me to realize that the reason why these issues were "problems", was because I wasn't going through them with Him. When we are walking with God, there is no such thing as a "problem", only a blessing in disguise. By trying to be obedient and reveal God's love to a fellow sister, God revealed His love and grace to me.
Pitching my tent with the Lord is the only way I have been able to weather college storms. And it’s the only way I ever will.
