A Dozen Dumpster Books, God’s Inspiration to Create

In my eyes, being a writer is being an artist. Creativity and inspiration must flow when writing from the heart. I have to admit that 2019 has been full of difficult adjustments. I moved twice, feeling like a nomad for a while. Floating further into this state of limbo, I changed jobs. Though for the … Continue reading A Dozen Dumpster Books, God’s Inspiration to Create

If We’re Being Completely Honest. [Prayer Challenge]

Privaledge or no privilege. Wealth or poverty. Healthy or unhealthy. War, corruption, neglect, abuse, or heartbreak. An ugly world or not: days like these I just don’t understand how people can conclude that God is not good, or that He’s not with us. I went on this beautiful hike today where my attitude from the … Continue reading If We’re Being Completely Honest. [Prayer Challenge]

Nostalgia

Today I took a walk through childhood. I stepped along the path of simpler days. Memories of naiveté and blissful whimsy came flooding back here. I had a Door Dash delivery to be dropped off at the apartments I grew up in and spent most of my childhood. Aside from in my dreams, I hadn't … Continue reading Nostalgia

Perception

A crucial perception of emotional or physical pain from my experience. Recognizing hope within the storm- even a healthy way to escape it, running to God, instead of from Him. We choose to feel the pain we have. We could decide to fully give it to Jesus and keep our sights on His goodness, feeling … Continue reading Perception

The Year I met Jesus – Best Year Yet

God reveals Himself through His creations. What allows a beautiful visitation of snow in the desert? An experience of strange rarity. Such strange unknowns that can be uncomfortable and even unwarranted by an unprepared participant. But God surely prepares us, as cold weather gradually moves in, introduces signs of more and more clouds, then produces … Continue reading The Year I met Jesus – Best Year Yet

The Active Christmas Presence

There's so much excitement and joy we can experience when we realize the meaning of Christmas. Of course, we wait for Christmas day in excitement for festivities, gifts, time with family, break from studies, sometimes work, whatever it may be, God so created us to have hope and anticipation in the times of waiting. I've … Continue reading The Active Christmas Presence

“Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay.” Ruth 1:16

This hangs above my bed and I read it quite often. Simple yet it's still so easy to stray, taking Jesus off the throne of our hearts and unintentionally replacing Him with our busy lives. Especially in this season, where people-pleasing easily motivates our hearts in perfecting the look of Christmas decorations and preparing just … Continue reading “Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay.” Ruth 1:16

Lay it Down for the One who Laid it all Down

After re-reading Proverbs 3:24, I had some insight come to me tonight. “If you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.” I've always regarded this verse to refer to the Lord blessing us with good sleep, which of course He has the power to do. But … Continue reading Lay it Down for the One who Laid it all Down

Beauty in the Journey

"Though the seasons change, your love remains." (Seasons Change - United Pursuit) The past few months have been full of personal discoveries that I resent not having made time to post anything about to share with my lovely blog readers. Lies had me believe that I should only share perfectly polished ideas that I fully … Continue reading Beauty in the Journey

Nobody’s Perfect… How Perfect.

“I’m not perfect. You’re not perfect. And that’s just perfect.” -Julia Kristina Counselling I'm loving how this change of perspective has shaped my mind lately. I’ve learned to love that none of us (will ever) have it all figured out. I love that we can all learn from each other through all of our polar … Continue reading Nobody’s Perfect… How Perfect.
