It just keeps on coming!
Looking back on the last 9 months of YMT and every thing that has happened, one of the things that races to my mind is how similar situations kept surfacing. It felt like I was reliving the same thing over and over again at times and as I sat thinking about these re-appearing situations I couldn't help by smile seeing how faithful God was. It was the most hard, challenging, encouraging, stretching, intense, and hilariously redonculous 9 months of my life. In the times that were the hardest I got the closest to God and the times that were the most fun I found that I understood God's character better. Everything that has happened on the YMT has added up to a relationship with God that is more personal that I could have imagined. I can't even remember all the revelations off the top of my head that I've had. The depth of understanding that God has given to me about who He is has changed the way I see God completely. I can honestly say that blaming God for bad things isn't even an option anymore. Making decisions without him seem more impossible than ever. Through the rocky situations I've learned what it really means to have God as a foundation and why and how God brings strength when I'm the weakest.
Romans 8:26-30 "In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God's people in accordance with the will of God. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified."
