I like to know everything. I want to know how things are going to turn out from the beginning to the end. I want to know if I start wearing my hair in a new way, if it’s a hairstyle I can still wear when I’m 50. I want to know if a guy and I start getting to know each other, if we’re going to get married or not. I want to know the full plan. So when God starts leading me in one direction, I like to fill in the rest of the story. For example, Continue reading “Being Spirit Led In Fulfilling Our Purpose”
This year has been one of the most uncomfortable years of my life. But you know what? I wouldn’t change it for anything.
God really took me through a process this year and brought me into deeper relationship with him. Right from January God pulled me in and I’ve really seen John 15 at work since. A.k.a a pruning process.
I learned so much Continue reading “IT’S BEEN AN UNCOMFORTABLE YEAR”
Have you ever been so scared to do something because you didn’t know how it was going to turn out? Well that was me not too long ago.
A few weeks ago I spent a couple weeks just being really sad and full of anxiety about the future. I was really stressed out because Continue reading “Getting Back To A Place Of Rest”
I am someone that cares what other people think about me. I don’t care as much as I used to but I definitely still care. It used to be so bad that I would always make decisions based on how I thought other people would perceive me. Don’t get me wrong I still make choices based on how I will be perceived, but in a much healthier way. Like how I present myself but not to the point the opinions of other people are making the choices for me. In the past I’d be scared to do what I really wanted to because I didn’t want Continue reading “Identity Crisis”
I need you. I can’t do this without you. I need you in every area of my life. Come in and take over everything. I give it all to you. I die to myself and my wants. Lord I want what you want for me. Strip me of my desires and fill my heart with your desires for me. Lead me where my trust is without borders. I want you completely. This life is not my own. This world is not my home. You are who I want. I am striving for you. So no matter what is going on in my life, help me to Continue reading “GOD I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU…”
You know how people always say we shouldn’t worry and trust God to take care of our worries? I’ve always felt like it was so easy to say, but so much harder to do. But you know what?
I’m finally learning to let go and let God. Things I used to worry about so often don’t even get the time of day in my thoughts anymore. I’m finally learning to take the things that are bothering me to God and leave them at the altar. My whole life I’ve been hearing that’s what I need to do, and I’ve always been like how??? Do you realize how hard Continue reading “Learning To Let Go And Let God”
Do you know something that seems to be really important to us these days? Having a charged phone. We don’t mind being late if it means we get to charge our phone that has 1% life left in it. We don’t mind walking around with a portable charger or shamelessly looking for an outlet at an event to get life back into that phone. And why not? Our phones are the most useful to us when they have battery life in them. Walking around with a dead phone is just carrying around an expensive shell. The actual purpose the phone was created for would be useless if it was always dead. Continue reading “Are You Charged Up?”
So I have a tendency to be lazy that is slowly but surely being worked out of me. Thank you God! I have a lot of ambitious goals that I want to accomplish, however I go through quite a few days where I don’t feel like doing the work to accomplish them. A lot of the time I just want to put the work off till the next day. But when I actually get started, it’s never that bad. Then I get annoyed with myself for not having started earlier. But of course, when it’s time to get started on something else, I go through the whole process all over again. Yup, it’s a process just Continue reading “Lazy Change”
Let’s say you walk into a maze. As you progress, you make a right turn and think this must be the way forward. Then you make the turn and end up at a dead end, feeling disappointed and lost. But you pick yourself back up and try again. You make some progress as you go through the maze but you’re always running into dead ends. What if you had some help? What if you had someone overseeing your maze and could tell you where to go? Continue reading “If Life Were A Maze”
