This Everyday Blessings edition is going to be a little different, because instead of just writing a list, I will also be bringing you up to date on a little of what’s been going on in Raquel’s life lately…

First of all, I will be joining the college scene this autumn as I have been accepted to Warner Pacific to study for a degree in Psychology. This is a dream come true for me, and especially after taking a couple years off after graduating high school, God really pointed me in the right direction and got everything set in motion for me to pursue something I am passionate about. (I’ve written articles about college before and I plan to write one regarding the decision I made to attend it this year. So keep an eye out for that…)
Secondly, I moved up to Washington this week. I never thought I’d live in the state north of my beloved Oregon, but God decided that I will for a while. I think I’ll be able to find some perks about it;) Already have, honestly, because I’ll be so much closer to certain friends, and definitely closer to Portland. It’s a good in between spot. And only about thirty minutes from my family.
And lastly, because of my move, I will be leaving my [first] beloved barista job. As much as I was sad to hand in my notice of departure, I am also extremely thankful for everything I’ve learned while working there and for having an amazing boss. I am thrilled for the opportunities such versatile job skills can offer. I am really hoping and praying that I can get another barista job in the town that I moved to, but whatever the LORD wills, I know will be best. I’m open to other work positions too. I love learning new things and being planted in new areas.
Anyway, with all this being said, I want to give God the glory for everything He has done in my life – and is continuing to do. A couple months ago, I was in a really big rut as far as trying to figure out what He was doing and which direction I should take. Honestly, though, there is so much truth in the “Be still and know that I am God” verse because sometimes that’s all you can do. And when He comes through – in His timing, not yours – it’s more incredible and amazing than what you could’ve ever imagined. He is so good.
Have a blessed month of July, peeps! Let me know how your 4th of July goes:)
