Not to say that I haven't had my share of homesickness, because I certainly have, but God has encouraged me in various ways each time I've felt sad, depressed, lonely, out of control, etc. He's a great God, and I owe my everything to him.
I've gotten to meet some amazing Christians, improve my photography and drawing skills, learn how to get along with different people, and how to fit in to this strange culture. I've found a wonderful church, been given great mentors, and made lasting friendships.
However, I haven't been spending as much as time with God as I should be because I'm busy with college, and I regret that. God deserves my everything, not just a part. I need to change that. It will be difficult, but it is worth it. Nothing is more important than being right with God.
Below is my prayer for you. God bless!
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen. ~Ephesians 3:20-21
