OTS by Jess: Day Nine

“I WILL praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be gland and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.” -Psalms 9:1-2

Today had a whole new attitude to it. My gumption for life was magnified today. It was a phenomenal day on the air, plus I got to spend time with my old roommate, Megan.

Talk about the light of my life.

This girl is my soul mate. Every time I spend time with her, I have no doubt in my mind that we were meant to live together. She is so beyond wonderful and so grounded. We’re a lot alike in many ways. And although we are the same age, I look up to her for advice and wisdom.

She has also been such a cheerleader for me. She thinks of me often and always knows what to say and when to say it. I know she is a God-sent angel in my life. I can’t imagine life without her.

Each conversation we share leaves me completely rejuvenated and tonight was no different. She has given me a boost and has encouraged me to take this time for myself. I am also super excited for the time that I’ll get to spend with her. But above all, she has confirmed that I am headed in the right direction.

I am so thankful for people, like Megan, that the Lord has placed in my life. When I was a sophomore in college, I prayed that the Lord would provide a good group of male friends for me to hang out with. Obviously after growing up with brothers, I am more comfortable hanging with the guys. He answered my prayer, and coincidentally, my boyfriend was in that group of guys that I ran around with during college. Don’t you love His sense of humor?

But what blows my mind is that the Lord has provided me with great women in my life as well. Like I talked about in my last post, I am also thankful for these ladies. To be honest, I have struggled in the past to have healthy friendships with girls my age however, the Lord has managed to get me out of that comfort zone. These women also play an integral role in my life.

Today was definitely a day of reconnecting with old friends. Looking back at all of them, I’ve realized that I am absolutely spoiled to know these people. It’s going to be great strengthening those bonds!
