why I am observing a Lenten fast, even though I am not Catholic.

This last Sunday, the message at my church was about our “crosses to bear.” In Luke 14:27, Jesus says “And whosoever does not bear is cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.” So often, it was pointed out to us that the statement “that’s just my/his/her/our/their cross to bear” is used in reference… Continue reading why I am observing a Lenten fast, even though I am not Catholic.

Jesus calls, but it’s not what you think it is.

I’m the kind of person who comes off as very stubborn, unwilling to learn sometimes, and a bit prideful; and I swear it’s totally a front (all faults, I’m well aware…). However, on the inside, I have a huge heart for learning and love conviction when I know it comes from the Holy Spirit at… Continue reading Jesus calls, but it’s not what you think it is.

locked out of heaven.

I'm very sorry, Bruno Mars. Somebody lied to you (and my money's on Satan). Her sex might seem like it's taking you to paradise, but believe me, it ain't lettin' you into heaven at all. See, it is written that the thief - aka: the devil - only comes to do three things: 1)steal, 2)kill,… Continue reading locked out of heaven.

About a year ago, I sat down and wrote a short post about "why God lets bad things happen." At the time, I was a brand new baby Christian, barely saved a month, and I was standing next to my best friend from high school as we buried her little sister. Morgan was 20 years… Continue reading why God lets bad things happen, pt. 2.

mission: impossible.

Someone told me recently, in light of everything I've been dealing with these past few weeks, "Don't be afraid to pray for the impossible." Until she said that, I really HAD been afraid to pray for what my heart truly desired. It seemed so far-fetched, but I knew God knew what my desires were, because only… Continue reading mission: impossible.

overcome.

I feel like half of my world has been turned on its head this past week. It's as if my life were a puzzle and someone just came by and took a third of the pieces. It's funny how much of a void one person can leave behind. With my boyfriend, left his family, and… Continue reading overcome.

tired?

You know, something struck me the other day while I was talking to a friend. He was telling me about how tired he was and how exhausting it was to think about all of the things that this coming week would hold for him; and I'll be honest, just hearing about it made even ME tired...… Continue reading tired?
