call to love

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?

Lately, I haven’t been hearing from God as much as I used to and as much as I would like to. I kept thinking, “What changed?” “Why isn’t He speaking to me anymore?” and overthinking about it. Then I realized that I hear most from God when I write things out, even if I don’t… Continue reading worth

faith

Let me just start by saying that the last few days have been so crazy.

Rebound? God wants… Continue reading re-bound

storm clouds

This is going to be a short (but hopefully sweet) little post about a really cool way God spoke to me last night. The last couple of days have been a whirlwind of emotion for me. It seems like I’ve felt every emotion under the sun- happiness, sadness, anger, confusion, shame, fear, guilt, and ultimately… Continue reading storm clouds

my worth, His purpose

Today, as I flew to Chicago, I read Genesis 1, the story about creation, while I was in the air. Even though I was basically seeing buildings and flat lands underneath me, looking out at the horizon and the different colors of something so simple as the sky made me realize that there’s really nothing… Continue reading my worth, His purpose
