So...I haven't blogged in quite some time. I have had a lot going on, but I prefer to call it "my new amazing". Everything keeping me so busy lately has all been answered prayers. Though my family has been thrown a curve ball recently, we stand on faith. Anyhow, how can you focus on the bad when there is so much good going on. I have had moments where I was like I will never be as happy as I am right now, but I can deff. say I am the happiest I have ever been. I am not stopping here though, I am going to even greater heights. I know that God has treasure stored for me, because Isaiah 45:3 says, "I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches in secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel."

Both wonderful things respectably in that order. I had been asking Mom for wireless Internet at the house for quite some time so that I wouldn't have to carry my laptop to the living room to get on the Internet. So we finally got the equipment delivered to the house to go wireless and as always, we had to call overseas for directions of how to activate the thing. It just so happened to be a foreign person who did not understand us or did not know what she was doing, either way...it was very frustrating! I got on the phone with her and she asked me what type of laptop I had, and I told her I had a MacBook. She then insisted that I tell her the model of my computer, and I repeatedly told her that it was a MacBook made by Apple and the lady still isn't understanding...so finally, after almost reaching a breaking point, she realizes what I am talking about and gives me an 8 digit password to type in. What do you know...it took me straight to the Internet. All she had to do was give me the password to start with instead of walking me through unnecessary steps. As I was thinking about how I spent so much time on the phone with this lady listening to unnecessary steps, I thought about how God must feel or what he must be thinking when he says "Kayla, I command you to..." and I question God saying send me a sign that this is really what you are saying. I can only imagine him saying, "I created you, I know what you are capable of. Quit making the task harder than it is, trust me, I am walking through it with you. I know the burden you can bear!" I question him and take many unnecessary steps to avoid the issue, when really, I could just make everything a lot easier by saying, "OK God, I said send me; therefore, now I will go!" It is amazing how getting frustrated about materialistic things can snap you back to reality so quickly and humble you more than anything else. I hope that you also take time to listen to God speak to you in the small still voice he speaks to me with! Work tomorrow. Back in a bit.

So this week is midterm week. My English midterm was way easy and I am hoping that the rest are also. I have been studying like crazy (probably over studying)! Anyhow, In the meantime, I forgot that I had an appointment in Birmingham yesterday because I wrote in one spot that it was Wed. and Monday night I realized it was really supposed to be Monday morning. I will blame it on the sleep deprivation! I basically got my knuckle shaved off by accidentally sticking it in the ceiling fan! Although, I am pretty excited about six flags Saturday!! Just wanted to post a little something so I didn't have to say I hadn't posted in a week!

Here I find myself sitting in Starbucks on a lovely Saturday! You may say...why would anyone want to sit in Starbucks on a Saturday??? I lost a bet to a wonderful friend and the deal was that I would pay for a meal if I lost the bet and as always I lost. So, I was kinda thinking that since this Friend of mine doesn't really eat like a girl...I would get out cheaper paying for Starbucks instead of say...Wings. Anyhow....just wanted to tell you about my Saturday so far. the rest of the day consist of Alabama Football!!! Roll Tide!!!!!!!!!!

I do not mind the waking up at 6 a.m. to get to my first class, but what bothers me is my monotoned History professor. He does not add any emphasis or tone to his words, he uses wooden guns as demonstrations, and bar stools to illustrate the decapitation of one's head. He is not crazy like a lot of Prof. you will meet but he is quite the opposite, WAY boring. What is a girl to do in a boring history class but sleep. I sleep with my eyes open and daydream. Although, when test time comes, my daydreaming has gotten me absolutely nowhere. Lloyd Mehaffey, please be a college Prof. when you retire from teaching high school English! We need professors like you!

I mentioned in my last blog that I am waiting on God to reveal my calling...I was looking around on stuff christians like, and the latest blog really revealed what God was trying to say to me the whole time. Like the blog "trying to find a cause" I was so adamant about hearing a thundering voice call me from the crowd to do something great that I missed what God was trying to tell me the entire time. Had I not taken the time to hear God's voice through a blog, I might still be seeking after tomorrow instead of praising him in my now! I want to live my adventure in his will and not my imagination. Many times my imagination has blocked out what God is trying to say. I will put all trust in him and cling to that small voice that guides me daily. I am my beloved's, My Beloved is mine!
