“God is never going to give you something you can’t handle.” I’ve heard this so many times. I read a book called Wolf Story where the mantra is “Always strength comes for the task.” The origin of these quotes is 1 Corinthians 10:13, and I take these statements to heart, as if they […]
My last couple of posts have been talking about purpose. On December 8, 2014, I finished drafting my own life purpose statement. This was the accumulation of nearly two years of evaluation, prayer, and study. Now that I have finished, I want to take what I have learned and pass it on to you. Maybe […]
In my last post, I was talking about my journey that began two years ago and ended once I finished drafting my life purpose statement a month ago (if you didn’t read that post, you can check it out here). But that was just the end of the story. Over the course of two […]
Almost two years ago, I started college at College Plus, but I had never completed the project that started a month after my enrollment. That’s a long time. Many would argue too long. What took so much time? The project was easy enough, at least it was to start out. The program is called […]
They say a dream is a wish your heart makes. I say that a wish is a prayer that you make when you don’t want to talk to God about it. We all have things that we want, but when it feels too selfish or lofty or impossible, we just hope and yearn and wish […]
A few weeks ago, I was talking about happiness and how it can be cheapened by our busy lifestyles. The mindset has become all about sucking as much fun out of life as possible, but the problem is that no one can really enjoy the great moments of life unless they slow down and let […]
I have been reluctant to write this post for a while. Like the title states, I failed the happiness challenge. Of course, I had every intention of keeping up with it, but it got to the point where it was adding more tension than happiness. I should emphasize at this point that it wasn’t stressful […]
As I continue on my #100happydays challenge, I find myself in a sort of predicament. Since I don’t have a phone, I am not used to carrying a camera around with me. I will try to do better this coming week, but for this week I will end up describing happy moments a lot more.
I just completed the greatest adventure of my life. After finishing a semester that earned me more credits than any previous semesters (which was quite the accomplishment in itself), my family packed up and headed down to Kentucky for a week-long vacation (Fun Fact: I’ve never been on vacation this long in my life!). Breaking […]
It’s been over a week since spring officially started, which means we are supposed to have tulips and rainbows and mud puddles, right? Unfortunately, no. When I think of spring, I imagine crocuses peeking out of the soft, sun-warmed earth after a long winter hibernation. I can picture daddy robins preparing nests while mother robins […]
