Be

My spirit feels faint from the constant pressure to do. I feel guilty whenever I sit down on the couch, watch a movie, or do anything unproductive. I realize my time on Earth is limited, and I want to be intentional with the way I use each second. God created me with a desire to […]

Fighting Fear

Fear chokes out freedom. On the outside, your life may seem as perfect as it can be; but on the inside, there’s something holding you back from true life and freedom. The struggle within you is seen by God. He knows the anxious thoughts that pass through your mind. It hurts His heart to see […]

Be Still and Know

I have honestly not been looking forward to starting school next Monday. I’ve been clinging onto each moment of summer and the familiarity of the current season I’m in.

The Things Unseen

The purpose of this life is more about the things unseen. A few minutes ago while praying, I found myself tired and worn out from worrying so much about temporary things. I’ve been trying to keep our house spotless, the TV controls in their designated spot, and all of the laundry folded a particular way. […]

Being > Doing

Last school year, I baked for my class with the purpose of sharing God’s love. I also wrote cards to show my peers that I cared about them. I did these things with right and pure motives.  When things start to become familiar, though, it’s easy to do them out of habit. If we’re not careful, […]

Unique

I struggle with things just like we all do, but I want to use my struggles to help others. I hope you are encouraged by knowing you are not alone. For the past couple of weeks, I have been obsessed with a certain YouTube channel. There’s nothing wrong with the channel, but I made it […]
