I have yet to decide on the perfect philosophical phrase to sum up all the intricate, wacky, complex and crazy parts that compile the person I am.

But there is a Bible verse that humbles me and gives me confidence at the very same time: "I am fearfully and wonderfully made." (Psalm 139:14)

I'm 22. A recent college graduate. A wife. A sister. A daughter.

It's weird to live outside of the confines of college classes and sleepless schedules. I only know to work hard and keep going, almost in robotic motion.

My life seems like a blank map right now. Only outlines of shapes. No dots of destinations or shades of specific territory.

I see my life not yet half-written. But God already knows each line, each pause, each break, each hesitation in thought.

"And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them." (Psalm 139:16)

The longest assignment I have ever had is the one I'm not finished yet. And that is learning to have faith in the One who's been trying to guide me my whole life.

I guess that's another thing you should know about me.

I'm stubborn. But God must have know what He was doing when He gave me that quality, too.
