This week, I was off from school because of reading week. During this time, I’ve learned that rest is a God-given gift.

I tried to organize my time as best as possible with week I was given, but still, I didn’t achieve everything I wanted to. I of course put priority on my rather floundering social life, which was really satisfying, but also, tiring.

So guess what? I got a cold. I could blame my sister for getting me sick (she’s sick because she was walking around outside without a jacket), but I didn’t really spend much time with her. So I really have no clue as to how I got ill.

But with being sick comes the need to rest. And this is when I realized that God gave us one body. One chance at living life with God’s purpose in mind, which can be done best if we are physically and mentally able. With the incessant tiredness that comes with being sick, came the realization that I need to stop freaking about all the things that need to be done and just focus on the basics. After all, God provides.

Really, He does. I was accepted to one of the schools I’ve applied for, and am still waiting on the others. But still, I know that God has a plan for me, and that I won’t feel completely stranded once I graduate.

All this, and all I’ve been doing is sleeping and playing Rockband. Thank God (literally).
