Struggles and Shadows | Personal

//when the world has fallen out from under me
I'll be found in You, still standing.
When the sky rolls up and the mountains fall on their knees,
when time and space are through,
I'll be found in You.//
—brooke fraser [shadowfeet]

This week is the last full week of classes before finals start, and it's been tiring & emotional to say the least. Tuesday was super difficult; I spent 12 hours at school—hours full of struggles. Insecurities showed their ugly faces. Tears threatened to fall. Hope seemed distant at times. And I didn't eat dinner until 10 pm. (If you know me, lack of food can cause some crazy reactions!)

However, I find peace and comfort in knowing that my identity does not shallowly rest in the scholarships I win (or don't win), in my grades, nor in my photography. It sits in something, Someone, much deeper. My identity is in Christ, and I want to spend the rest of my earthly life bringing Him glory! This song is a good reminder to me of that, and that I'm just living a "shadow life" real life starts in Eternity. And oh, how glorious that will be!

love always,
amelia renee:)
