My hardest struggle

So recently I have been worrying alot about EVERYTHING in my life. I think the root of this worrying is because this is my last year in grad school and I have to start the whole job search thing. I just get so nervous! Like I keep comparing my skills to others that are in my program and I feel as though I am not the best candidate. I have a lot to improve on w/my position and I just wish I can stop looking to the negative things and start seeing how I am good at my job and start improving on things (like the administration stuff). I am so blessed that I need to stop worrying and start putting it in my Father's hands.

I have started reading (only read chapter 1 so far but it is good) The power of a praying woman by Elizabeth George. I know for a fact once I improve my 1-1 time with the Lord and truly start getting serious with my prayer life then my whole life will start getting better and I will no doubt stop worrying. This morning the Lord gave me this verse that I need to truly memorize when I start worrying about my future:

Jeremiah 29:11-13
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

I know for a fact that my Father will not let me fail as long as I am giving Him my WHOLE heart. So today is a new day and I starting my day right with putting my Father first and not worrying what will come.

8 months in the natural game :o)

So it has been 8 months since I did my big chop and I am loving every minute of it. Recently I have been debating what I should do with my hair for the winter weather because I do not want to do wash and go's when it is cold outside. So I did some twists on my hair.... Yes you have read right lol I DID MY OWN HAIR!!!!!! I was quite nervous when I started twisting my hair because I had no idea how it would come out but I think it came out alright. I think this is the style that I will try to keep up with for this winter. Gosh my hair has been growing alot and I can't wait till it gets to the point where my twists are long enough to style. Here are some pics of my new hair.... Let me know what you think!!!!
