Finding God's Provision Through People
Within These Walls
If college were a color, it would be blue — but not in a sad, depressing way. It was more like a vibrant turquoise — the color of our apartment’s accent walls.
Within those walls, roommates who started out as church friends became lifelong sisters. Some people consider themselves lucky if they find roommates who wash the dishes and take out the trash. I consider myself blessed to have had roommates who have prayed with me at my worst and rejoiced with me at my best.
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.
I remember the long nights of deep talks, the countless church meetings we hosted around our coffee table, and all the ways we encouraged and challenged each other in our faith, even when things were tough. Each of these memories live inside my mind, framed within walls of turquoise — a color that reminds me of God’s provision through the people he has placed around me, who walk with me, sharpen me, and teach me how to better reflect Christ.
