True Life: I Hate The Unknown

It’s true. I hate the unknown more than anything. When I don’t know the details of things that are happening in my life I get anxious. I love to be prepared and when I’m prepared I think that I’m the one in control of what is happening in my life. Obviously this isn’t true in the slightest. God’s in control, no matter how much planning and preparing I do. He ultimately decides how things happen in my life.  ...

A Secret About Your Fears

I felt like God wanted me to write about this specific topic earlier today but I reasoned with myself and told myself that I didn’t really feel in the mood to write at the time so I decided not to write about it. What I wanted to write though was that God has really been trying to show me the secret of why I fear things is because I picture the fear without God being there.  God’s really been telling me over and over again lately  ...

how to experience J O Y in every day life

Okay so my computer has a virus and that’s why I haven’t been blogging all that much. I’m currently on my work computer (shh don’t tell anyone). But my plan is to buy a Mac, hopefully tonight actually. I love sharing what God’s doing in my life in hopes to encourage others too. God’s really teaching me how to experience joy amidst my every day life. Joy. Real joy. Something that I’m not too familiar  ...

Life Update: God Cares About The Small Things Too!

Disclaimer: This is super long and way more personal than my prior posts. I hope you guys will enjoy learning more about my life and what God is doing in it. I’d love to hear about yours as well! Leave a comment with your blog website and I’d love to check it out 🙂 God is SO good guys! My main reason for documenting this is because I really want to be able to clearly remember how God showed up and answered my prayers in such an  ...

To The Perfectionists

It’s okay. It’s okay not to have it all together. Sometimes I know this but for me to actually believe it, it’s impossible. There’s a verse in the bible about being perfect isn’t there? Oh yeah… “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” – Matthew 5:48 But what does “perfect” look like in the eyes of God? What is He expecting of us? This is something that I  ...

For Those Of You Who Have Anxious Hearts Like I Do….

This post is for those of you who know how it feels to be anxious. Anxious about life. Anxious for no reason at all sometimes. This post is for those of you who want so badly to trust in God’s good promises for you, who want to experience the peace that Jesus offers – but just can’t seem to grab a hold of this peace and keep it in your hearts. Instead you know how it feels to keep repeating the same anxious thoughts over  ...

I Wish…

Some days are harder than others. For no reason at all. Today is one of those days. I feel crushed by my own desires. Contentment is what I struggle with. Some days more than others. I wish… I wish I was prettier. I wish my skin was clearer. I wish I was married. I wish I had a job that was more stable. I wish my home life wasn’t so stressful. But then I hear a still small voice whisper, “You are exactly where I need you to  ...

Trusting That God Really Is Good…

This is something that I struggle with on most days if I’m honest. I’ve gone through some tough things throughout my life and sometimes I blame God for allowing these things to happen. I mean don’t get me wrong I know “logically” that God is good. I am completely thankful for the fact that Jesus died for me. It’s such an amazing truth, but sometimes I struggle with really grasping that truth and keeping it  ...

If God’s Ways Are Higher Than Ours Why Does He Allow Bad Things To Happen To Us?

I just want to start out by saying that I’m really excited about starting this blog. I have been going back and forth with the idea of having it be a blog page or a devotional page but I think I decided with a mixture of both. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:9 This verse is an interesting one because it is probably one  ...
