The Funk

The Funk

Saturday I woke up with the funk. You know what I’m talking about. You wake up feeling lazy, tired, having no motivation, but most of all you feel kind of meaningless. Well, at least I do. I think it is one of the worst feelings you can ever experience, and I was sulking in it. I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes I forget that I can talk to God about whatever, whenever. That includes when I get into these…

Black Coffee

Black Coffee

What do you think of when you hear the words black coffee? Saturday mornings on the couch? The source that gets you through the day (behind Jesus, of course)? Or maybe you just think “ew.” You know what I think? Bitter. Most people don’t like black coffee, and the majority that do like it have accustomed a taste to it over time. And you know what? The same thing happens when our hearts are bitter. Being bitter feels gross at…

From the mud to My Rock

From the mud to My Rock

So I have this journal. This journal, you see, has become very near and dear to my heart. It holds all kinds of things like quiet time entries, entries about my day, particular memories, and some days I’ll just write away all of the feels that I’m feeling. Sometimes my entries give me ideas to write about on my blog, so tonight I was skimming through my journal searching for content when I suddenly noticed a particular pattern in  my…

My Year

My Year

Hello friends! After a month of not writing, I am finally back, and it feels good to be back. I hope that y’all had a Merry Christmas and a happy new year! To kick off 2017, I want to start a tradition on my blog to write about each passing year. You see, in my 19 years of living I have learned that it’s so easy to pass by and forget moments that got you to where you are in…

First Semester and My Faith

First Semester and My Faith

I did it. I made it. I got through my first semester of college. Wow. With me being on break now, I know many of my family members and friends are bound to ask the question, “How was your very first semester of college?!” And I’m here on my blog to share with everyone how my first semester actually went. It’s so easy to be passive and say “It was good!” but I don’t want to be passive; I want…

Rest

Rest

Hi friends. It’s been a while since I’ve just opened up my laptop and just started writing. I’ve missed it! I was inspired to write about what the Lord has been doing in my life, specifically what he has been doing today, and that is the fact that he has been giving me rest. I’m a college student. It is the most hectic time of the semester with finals rolling around and trying to finish up the last of my…

Our Expectations vs. God’s Reality

Our Expectations vs. God’s Reality

Hello friends! I am so incredibly excited to share with you something I have been relishing in the past couple of weeks, and that is God’s grace. What is God’s grace? Well according to the handy dandy internet, grace is the free and undeserved favor of God. Keep that in mind, you’ll need to remember that in a minute. For now, let me share with you a common scenario I’ve been experiencing lately: Me:  Okay, I’m going to study for this class, workout,…

Action is key

Action is key

Wow y’all. It’s that time of the year already. School is here, and summer is over. I cannot even express how blown away I am about how quickly these past 3 months have whizzed by. But I do have to say, in those 3 months I have grown A LOT. I have learned so much about the Lord as my relationship with him has increasingly gotten deeper and deeper. And one of the things that He has brought to my…

Our Brother

Our Brother

Jesus. Who is Jesus? Savior. Shepard. Deliverer. Redeemer. Brother? I feel like we tend to forget that one.   A lot of times, we think of Jesus as the man who did miraculous, unexplainable things that we can never wrap our heads around. He is the perfect man who sacrificed himself for the imperfect. While this is beautiful truth, we are still missing one very important aspect of the story. So now Jesus and the ones he makes holy have the same Father….

Speak up, Speak Loud, Speak Love

Speak up, Speak Loud, Speak Love

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that God loves to speak to me through song. Some of my biggest revelations have been in my car listening to worship music, and I love it. I like to think that when I choose shuffle on my playlist I am letting the Lord be the DJ, because out of aaalll the worship music I have, the song I need to hear plays. It is truly amazing. So…
