You Are Chosen

I wrote a quick prayer about my frustration with being chosen almost six months ago. Since then I’ve been going through a major purge—breaking up with thoughts and people that have been roadblocks to my peace and closeness with God. It’s forced me to really examine what I’ve been clinging to and how that has hardened my heart to God, whether I meant for it to or not.   I’ve found that by hardening myself, I was actually trying to ignore…

Monthly Study: Mastering Forgiveness

Sorry I’ve been MIA! I know I skipped a study for March but God has been deaaaaaling with me. I typically write these as I’m coming out of a test and I hadn’t exactly been passing any of them last month, LOL. I’ll be the first to admit I’m as flawed as they come and although many of you have shared that my posts have helped you in some way, I honestly use them to keep myself on track! I…

Monthly Study: Self-doubt

On one hand I love social media for lots of inspiration and boosts to my own style and creativity, but lately it has become a place of insecurity and self-doubt for me. “How is her skin so clear ALL the time?” “Why doesn’t my hair curl like that?” “Why do I have negative hips even though I’ve been sumo squatting like an idiot for months?” Why are the pettiest most trivial things that have no impact on eternity getting so…

A Prayer for the Week: Focus

And I don’t know about y’all but I was beyond done with 2016!…

A Prayer for the Week: You are chosen

There are times when I question if the bible I read is the same one that everyone else in the world seems to be reading. I question whether I take it too literally, or wonder why I have to feel so convicted of things that other people seem to be enjoying freely. Most times, it’s pertaining to a decision that doesn’t seem that bad, but that I know is a response of my flesh. There are plenty of people living…

Monthly Study: Pursuing Peace–Smiling in the face of pain

Without hesitation, I can say that the past week has been one of the hardest I’ve had to endure emotionally in my life. I know that sounds SUPER dramatic but it’s true for me—I’ve never been tested like this before and it has been a whirlwind of emotion while trying to restore my balance during this difficult time. But what I can’t deny is the quiet presence of God while I’ve been gradually pulling myself together.   I was working…
