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.

Pain, Faith and the Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Thursday, October 11, 2018
Today I am writing about pain, faith, and wisdom teeth extractions. Those who really know me know that I can relate something that I see or experience to something philosophical (or my faith) in a heartbeat. Trust me it gets annoying watching movies with me. I'll take something small that I see and relate it to something in life and then want to talk about it. Anyhow, I was reflecting on the recent experience I had while getting my wisdom teeth extracted (I warned yall that I am corny). Don’t roll your eyes yet haha. I was nervous about having this procedure done for so long and for some reason it didn’t work out for me to make an appointment. The position of a couple of those teeth were off, so I felt the teeth growing in and shifting my other teeth. It was pretty painful. When I would try to make the appointment or be seen to have an x-ray it never seemed to work out. I took that as a "bad sign," being the worrywart that I was and kept putting it off.

Why Trusting God is Crucial As Believers

Sunday, October 7, 2018
Welcome everyone! Today I’m reflecting on why Trusting God is so crucial as a believer. I want to share this personal journal entry as my first official post and launch of this blog. So, here we go. I remember being at a crossroads a few years ago. There were so many things up in the air and I no longer knew what I wanted. I was scared because the future that I thought I needed to build for myself was not the future that was evolving before me. I remember standing alone in my kitchen and somehow knowing that I would remember that moment where I felt that I had a choice to move forward in faith or fall backwards into a fruitless situation that was comfortable for me. Remembering that moment used to bring shame and a deep sense of pain because I obviously didn't choose to move forward in faith. Yet, I have healed enough to share this with you all. Even so, the consequences of the decision eventually brought more pain and loneliness than I could ever imagine.
