The God of Justice

Monday, June 1, 2020
Hello everyone. Today I've titled my post The God of Justice and I wanted to share how I have recently been seeking to understand God’s justice and some biblical verses/principles that I've been meditating on. I was planning to do a testimony regarding the family dysfunction and abuse that I endured and how I'm unpacking the trauma of the past and reconciling that with my faith in God and His word, however, I wanted to share this post first because it is so relevant right now.

Fully Understanding God's Love & Will for His Followers

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Hi everyone. Today I am sharing a post on Fully Understanding God's Love and His Will for His Followers. I hope you all are seriously taking this time of social isolation to examine your hearts, your life, and your priorities. I am sharing this because I have struggled with huge disappointments in life and heartbreaks that were no fault of my own and others that were absolutely a result of my choices. Unfortunately, most people have a superficial and incorrect understanding of God's love. I'm not a pastor or a teacher, so I've collected a lot of verses, so you can discern for yourself. 

The heart of it is that we would not like someone to just say they love us in words alone and not take the time to understand us or find out the ways that we feel loved. God extended the gift of salvation because of the evils in this world and if we don't allow Him to save us, we can't expect to be a part of His Kingdom. If we were to open our Bibles and understand the cost of salvation and the purpose of giving our lives to Christ, it would really open our eyes.

Pleasant Surprises In the Midst of Trouble

Friday, March 20, 2020

Hello everyone. It's been an interesting time. I obviously don't have to inform anyone about the impact of the Corona Virus on communities around the world, so I won't. I just wanted to share my thoughts and my surprise to the responses of so many people during this time. 

Initially I could feel the fear, worry and uncertainty everywhere I went so tangibly. It was like I could even feel it through my screen via social media. It was such a shock how quickly everything changed and it felt like the world just stopped for a moment. Then panic set in as most people swarmed the stores to ensure that they would have enough food and supplies. Some people even allowed the panic and uncertainty of the moment fuel them to selfishly hoard as much as was permitted. But the negative responses aren't the motivation of my post today.

New Year. New Thing. New Perspective.

Wednesday, January 1, 2020

Happy New Year, everyone! I wanted to start this New Year off with a faith blog post. This one is titled New Year. New Thing. New Perspective. I remember before the start of this past season of my life, I kept seeing the following Bible verse from Isaiah 43:19:

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
New Thing New Perspective

New Year. New Thing. New Perspective.

At first I was hopeful about the promise found in Isaiah 43:19. I truly believed that God was showing me that he was going to deliver me from my dysfunctional situation. I wondered what that "new thing" would entail. I sure didn't anticipate the trials and pain that came along with allowing God to tear down the old things in order to prepare a way for the new thing. And I didn't know it at the time, but what I needed more than anything to embrace this move of God was a new perspective to stay encouraged and keep going with the right attitude.

Facing Temptation | A Moment of Weakness

Monday, April 8, 2019
I want to share with you guys what I learned after I had recent trial concerning facing temptation and a moment of weakness. I never imagined that I would be sharing my faith this much on a blog. It just sort of happened. I envisioned having a lifestyle blog showcasing green beauty products, makeup looks, throwing in some motherhood topics, and maybe a little talk about my faith here and there.

Following Jesus | People Pleasing and Guarding Your Heart

Wednesday, March 6, 2019
Hi friends, I want to share some of the mistakes I made when I first began following Jesus, the consequences of people pleasing, and why we need to guard our hearts. The message of this topic is something that is still relevant for me today and one that I need to keep close to my heart. I remember having a conversation with someone a few years ago and that person was skeptical about truly following the principles of Jesus because the person argued that it would be problematic because it is contrary to our culture. The person even stated that it could be dangerous. I would be lying if I said that I haven’t seen persecution on varying levels or experienced some myself. Jesus himself tells us in the Bible that we will be persecuted for his namesake. Yet, as a teenager and throughout college, I began moving further away from seeking God because I was seeking acceptance and the world’s approval.

Valentine's Day and the True Standard for Love

Thursday, February 14, 2019

Hi guys and Happy Valentine's Day! I felt inspired to share a post centered around love because this holiday inspires love and/or romance for so many people. For me, I always looked forward to the chocolate and pretty pink and red themed cards or decorations. However, I know that many people can feel lonely and sad on Valentine's Day as well. So, I wanted to dig into what the true standard of love actually is and how I've been challenging myself to love more effectively. I hope the words placed on my heart will be encouraging for you.
