My goal for the summer is this...
I am constantly on Pinterest looking at all these cute clothes but I always convince myself that they won’t look right on me so I settle with jeans and t-shirts because they’re “comfortable”. Well this summer I am going to throw out most of the crap in my closet and I’m going to fill my closet with cute clothes that I will actually enjoy wearing. Pinterest is going to...
God keeps showing me earthly examples of Himself. I know that probably doesn’t make a lot of sense but when you can just look at someone and know that they are completely heads over heels in love with Christ it makes you strive to be so much better. A guitarist in our Campus Praise Band has been captivating me with his love for Christ. Now he’s happily married so I’m not...
There's so much that I want to blog about...
but my mind won’t stay on one track. It keeps zipping all over the place.
I am in such awe of my Savior that the only thing...

My sister-in-law is planning on having an abortion. She claimed that she was due in April, then in July so I’m not really sure where she is with this pregnancy but either way this baby deserves life. Pray that God will protect His child that He placed in her womb. Pray for clarity of mind and wisdom. She said that she has to go to New York for the abortion which means that she is probably...
: Porn. →
thepersonibecame: For the longest time I really struggled with porn, but I think one image in my head made me stop. It was the image that a former porn producer painted in my head during an interview that I saw somewhere on the internet a long time ago. He said that most of the girls…

Just finished a really good conversation with my new RA. This won’t be as bad of a semester as I thought. Still miss Pam a ton though!!! :(
"Paul, Unphased" by Matt Chandler
Them: We'll kill you.
Paul: To die is gain.
Them: We'll leave you alone.
Paul: To live is Christ.
Them: We'll torture you.
Paul: I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Them: We'll put you in prison.
Paul: Well, give me a hymnal; I'll convert all your guards and lead them in praise and worship.

Why is it that the Bride of Christ is known more for what she’s against more than than what she’s for? Church, we need genuine change starting now. There’s no time for procrastination. Changing lives for His glory is our purpose. Why are we not doing just that? Why?
I don’t believe that you go to hell just for being gay just like I don’t believe that I’m going to hell for that lie that I told last week. I believe that people go to hell when they don’t accept the Truth, when they don’t accept the fact that Jesus Christ died on the cross for their sins, that He is the Creator and He sustains this universe. When you don’t...
I find myself...
Jamming out to Demi Lovato…DAILY! I’m not ashamed. Nope.

If you think you are unhappy… If you think your salary is low… If you think you don’t have many friends… When you feel like giving up … If you think you suffer in life, do you suffer as much as he does?

Harder than I thought.
First day back to school without Pam has been so hard. I’m so used to being with her all the time. I just wanna cry. I can’t believe that she won’t be here all semester. I understand why she can’t be here and I feel a little selfish wishing she could be here but it’s all for God’s glory.
I feel like that when I was younger I wanted to hurry up and be an adult. I picture myself running towards adulthood and then when the responsibility began to feel overwhelming I dug my heels into the ground. Now I’ve fallen into adulthood with this big crash and I don’t know how to get up from here. These next few weeks/months are going to be extremely tough for me. I pray that I can...
Where's the unity?
The more I look at my NewsFeed, my Dashboard, my Timeline, or whatever, the more I see the need for more events like The Elephant Room 2. We may not agree on all the specifics about Christianity but we all have Jesus as our Lord and Savior in common so where’s the unity? It’s lacking and I’m pretty sure that as an incomplete body, we’re not functioning correctly. ...
on Tim Tebow. Now…this is my own personal opinion and since this is a heated subject for some, I will not reply to anything that’s arguing against or anything negative. I’m entitled to my opinion and you are entitled to yours. Now with that said… I respect Tim. I believe that Tebow is trying to glorify God and I think that the media has made a mockery of it, well not just...
