Last night was the Mat Kearney concert. I adore him, so I was thrilled when I found out he was coming to play at the Canopy Club. Unfortunately, I never saw him perform. I remember seeing a little bit of the opening act, I remember taking a few bites from a Subway sandwich, I remember puking in a garbage can... and that's about it. I paid 15 bucks for my ticket and another 25 for a t-shirt that I lost. So that's 40 dollars wasted.
Wasted. That was me.
On the retreat last weekend, I decided that I was going to try to live a different kind of life. A life that glorifies Christ. So much for that. Temptation is everywhere. This university is literally dripping with temptation. I'm beginning to worry that I'll never be able to be the person I want to be.
As I walked in the crisp fall air to class this morning, I was listening to Leeland's new album. And suddenly, I was just overcome with emotion. My eyes welled up and I felt sorry. At the same time, though, I felt thankful for forgiveness. I messed up. But I am forgiven.
