I'm gaining back my self-worth because I'm taking it out of the hands of temporary people and placing it in the loving hands of a permanent God.
The last couple of days it's been on my mind how people say "Oh God feels far away? Well He doesn't move so, who did?" To be honest, when everyone would say "oooh that's good," I'd always feel a little mix of guilt and fear. Can a couple of days/weeks of mixed up priorities really… Continue reading close
Who are you being called to love? A friend? A family member? Sponsor a child? Feed the homeless? Go on a mission trip? That man that's always drunk at the bar? The girl in class everyone else gossips about? That one person you feel like you see everywhere lately and you just don't know why? That guy that says he know the Lord but his lifestyle says the opposite and now people have given up on him?
Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Freedom, to me, is one of the most overused Americanized words. I grew up thinking that freedom meant doing whatever I wanted. “Its a free country” we… Continue reading freedom

I’ve started to develop a nightly routine in the last few months, and every night is always the same… Continue reading light
we live in a time where people care about how something sounds more than what it actually says. if it is hashtag worthy or flows together nicely and has some vague meaning about “life is good” people eat it up. the one that sticks out for me most is “follow your heart.” its written all… Continue reading heart check
sometimes, we have a lot going on. things might not be going in the direction we'd like, our plans might be falling apart. our souls and spirits might be hurting. we go to the doctor when our bodies are sick, why wouldn't we do the same for our spirits? here is a small dose of… Continue reading a mini dose of encouragement
When we hear the word “rebound” applied to modern day relationships, we usually think of a person that is used purely for the intent of getting over another person. Which is why, when God put this thought in my head, I was completely confused. “Let me be your rebound,” He told me. Rebound? God wants… Continue reading re-bound
