Missions Monday – Part Eight | Relying On His Peace

Missions Monday – Part Eight | Relying On His Peace

Hello! I hope you’re having a good day. ❤ A new week is here, and with it comes a huge variety of possibilities! I’m praying that whatever you have planned to do, whatever you hope to accomplish, you will be strengthened by the determination to complete it. 🙂

The post that I’m sharing with you today is completely inspired by how I was feeling just a few days ago.

The Consuming Passion

I have noticed over the years that when I am passionate about something, I easily become consumed by it. If I really like something (or someone), I’ll think about it so thoroughly and for such an extended amount of time that I quickly build up anxiety about it. Having considered all the good qualities and possibilities about it, all that’s left to wonder is if anything could go wrong. This gets me in so much trouble, haha!

There are many examples from my life. I’ve been wanting to get a job for quite a while, because I’ll enjoy getting paid and strengthening my customer service skills … but I dwell on the possibility of having bad coworkers; I wonder how transportation will work since I don’t have my own car yet; I fear that I’ll fail the duties assigned to me. Another example is my desire to be bilingual. I love learning Spanish and speaking it … but I’m scared I won’t find the right class or program to fully learn it; I’m frightened at the prospect of native speakers being unable to understand me; I worry that I’ll get tongue-tied and be unable to respond to someone in Spanish (which has already happened on more than one occasion).

I have a track record of ruining perfectly good things for myself by over-analyzing them to the point of no return.

So, you may be wondering, how does this relate to missions? Because it very strongly relates to the topic of this series.

The Pursuit Of Knowledge

One of the main things I love to do when I’m really interested in something is to research it. There are benefits and downsides to this habit, haha, because I end up learning a lot of awesome things about the subject at hand on my endless internet browsing ventures … but on the flip side, I also learn things I wish I hadn’t.

Knowledge is not always power. In some cases, it is absolutely crippling.

This past week, I was enjoying browsing the ‘missions’ side of Pinterest, which contains some pretty wonderful quotes, helpful articles, and inspiring photography from missions around the world. I found this to be a fun pastime, until I came across what was supposed to be a helpful article – and it would have been if it hadn’t caused me to be so paranoid.

The Anxieties Involved

The one main thing that has always concerned me with international missions is that of safety. Being a girl comes with its own risks, even just being here in the United States, and I fear that there will be something that happens while I’m on a mission trip one day that makes me feel unsafe.

The ‘helpful’ tips I found on that article really got into my head, and the next time I went to a store, I honestly felt like I should have been on alert – as if something was about to happen.

But it was all in my head!

The Peace That Comes

Over the past year of my life, I have slowly come to terms with the fact that every aspect of my life is in the Lord’s hands. Some things are easier to trust Him with than others, but that will never alter the fact that He cares for me wholly. Allowing myself to become anxious about the unknown is not His will, and in the years to come, I truly desire to strengthen this trait of mine.

“I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33

I’ve mentioned before that I am easily at peace about when He will send me on missions. Simply knowing that it’s in my future is what makes me happy – I know the rest is in His care. Because of this, I am of the firm belief that I should be able to trust that He will also keep me safe on these same missions! He’s not sending me anywhere that He won’t go with me. ❤


Thank you so much for reading! It was a joy to write this post, for this topic has been heavy on my heart this past weekend. I’d love to know in the comments below:

Missions Monday – Part Seven | The Goodness Of The Lord

Missions Monday – Part Seven | The Goodness Of The Lord

Hi there, guys! ❤ Happy Monday to you. 🙂 I hope you’re doing well! Recently, I have been thinking more about missions than I have in quite a while, which is what inspired me to add a seventh part to my Missions Monday series. I can’t believe I’ve written so many posts on this topic – it’s awesome! But it has been quite a while since I actually shared one, so that’s why I wanted to continue with it today.

Related Post: Missions Monday – Part One | How It All Began

On the subject of missions, I have written posts concerning my status with them (which is prayerfully waiting ❤ ), as well as inspiration for others also interested in them. I’ve shared that waiting on the Lord to provide us with the missions He desires for us to go on is so important, because that is where we will truly be a blessing to others.

Whether the work He gives us to do is in our own country or across the world, He is in the midst of those who do His work, in every shape and form.


In my own life, I’ve experienced and seen for myself His power at work, both in my highest moments and lowest points. I have been humbled by His greatness when life is truly good, and I have clung to Him for dear life when I’ve feared the worst. Not once has He failed me.

While sitting in the quiet of my room recently, I’ve found myself doubting that I was where He desired for me to be. I wondered if composing journal entries to Him and brainstorming blog posts was worth the precious time I’ve been given – but you know what? I felt at peace while engaging in those activities, because they’re both ways I express my love for Him.

There have been times when I wasn’t sure if I’d continue blogging. There have also been more times of disinterest in journaling, a hobby I used to adore … but they’re both things I’ve come back to without fail, because not only do they add to my life – they also uplift my relationship with Him. And those are things I can tell He still desires for me to do.

The more I’ve observed how He is able to use even the simplest things in my life for His glory, I have further experienced for myself the goodness of the Lord.


Isn’t it beautiful that the Lord sends His people out into the world to tell others of His matchless grace? His love encompasses all of us, and He knows that one main way He speaks to the lost is through those who have already been redeemed.

“How great is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, before the sons of men!” – Psalm 31:19

His goodness reaches to the heavens. He lovingly guides us to exactly where we need to be, at the perfect time, under the right circumstances, for as long as He desires us to be there. Our ministry is often found in the smallest of tasks, in the shortest conversations, with people who are part of our lives if even for just a moment. The Lord knows that our witness is strong when the timing is right, even when we can’t see the significance of these times – for when we shine His light, lost souls turn our way.

How do you feel when you come across a stranger experiencing true joy? They may be laughing with a friend, or interacting with a child, or simply greeting you with a smile as you walk into the store. Doesn’t that spark something within you to give back the simple kindness they just treated you to? I know that’s how I always feel – it inspires me to go out and do something simple for someone else, to make the tiniest difference in another’s life. Passing on love in this way is so easy to do, yet so often neglected at the same time.


Will you do me a favor? The next time you question the importance of where your life is headed, think of the Lord and all of His goodness. When we allow Him to beautifully craft our lives in His caring hands, He will never neglect us … in even the quietest moments of our existence, He is there with us. We matter so much more to Him than we’ll ever know. ❤

Thank you so much for reading today’s post! I hope you enjoyed it, and also that your week is getting off to a beautiful start. 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

Missions Monday – Part Six | Being Prepared For Missions

Missions Monday – Part Six | Being Prepared For Missions

Hello everyone! I hope that you’re doing well. 🙂 ❤ I have Part Six of my Missions Monday series to share with you today! Last week, I shared what it’s like to trust in the Lord when it comes to a future in missions, and on this post, I’ll cover being prepared for missions.

Waiting on the Lord’s timing with Guatemala through this whole year has taught me much, and I am happy to share some of my tips with you today.

I hope you enjoy!


Tips For Spiritually / Emotionally
Preparing For Missions

At the moment, I can’t give any tips on preparing for mission trips in a literal sense, as I haven’t been on one yet. However, I did find an awesome website a while ago that has articles on this topic, if that’s what you’re interested in! Click here to check that out. 🙂

Today, I will be talking about the preparation of mind and spirit when it comes to missions. I’m drawing from my own experience, as well as articles I’ve read on the subject.

My first tip for you is to pray about missions. Whether the Lord has already placed this calling on your heart, or you think you’d like to serve Him on the mission field one day, bring it before Him and leaving it in His hands is an important and crucial part of preparing. If I wasn’t able to talk to Him about different things I’m considering or wondering about with Guatemala, I don’t know what I’d do. Knowing He’s always there to listen is a beautiful blessing. 🙂 ❤

My second tip is to read the Bible. Many people in the Bible were on a very similar mission: to go out into the world and tell others about Him. It might have been within their own town, or they were writing to people miles and miles away. Whatever the Lord has placed on your heart, I know how much of an encouragement it is to me to read about biblical figures who went through much the same thing I am right now: waiting in faith and following His plan for my life.

My third tip is to expect the unexpected. I have gotten into a mindset a few times of viewing the mission trip I will one day go on as being a fully amazing experience. While I don’t doubt this to be true, this perfect vision is unrealistic, as people aren’t perfect, and conditions aren’t always just right, and situations always turn out differently than we expect them to. Viewing future trips as a beautiful way to serve the Lord and the opportunity to be a blessing to others is important to keep in mind. Expect the unexpected.

My last tip is to trust that the Lord will get you there. If missions are on your heart, leaving that desire in His hands is truly the best thing you can do. It has helped me immensely to have faith that He will work everything out, and in the meantime, I am happily trusting Him and learning Spanish while I wait. ❤ ❤ ❤


Thank you so much for reading! I hope and pray that these tips could be an encouragement to you. (:

Missions Monday – Part Five | Trusting In The Lord

Missions Monday – Part Five | Trusting In The Lord

Hey guys, and happy Monday! ❤ I hope that your week is getting off to a fantastic start. 🙂 If you live in the US, how was your Thanksgiving break? My family and I had a relaxing weekend at home, which we all enjoyed spending together. ❤ My mom has been out of the hospital for one week now, and she’s on mild bed-rest. Overall, she’s doing much better, and we’re very thankful she’s home! Now, let’s check out today’s post.

I have the next part of my Missions Monday series to share with you! If you’re new to this series, you can read the rest of the posts here. Today, I’ll be talking about trusting in the Lord when it comes to my future in missions. ❤ I hope that you enjoy!


The Easiest Thing

In January of this year – nearly eleven months ago – the Lord revealed to me a specific part of my future. I knew, without doubt, deeply in my heart, that I would serve Him in Guatemala someday.

By someday, I mean just that – I have no date whatsoever; just a knowing that He will get me there when I am meant to be.

This may make my situation look like a hard one to bear. Isn’t it hard not knowing when, how, or even why? I briefly wonder these same things myself. However, as I mentioned in this section of the post, it has turned out to be quite possibly the easiest thing for me to spiritually bear. ❤

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

From the exact moment that I knew Guatemala was in my future, I also knew, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that the situation was safe in His hands. It took some time to get used to, and I still think about it usually at some point every day … but I don’t have to surrender it to Him like I would if it wasn’t already in His controls.

I can’t tell you how much it blesses me to know that He has a plan – I just have to trust Him. That is easy because of the peace He has given me. ❤ Because of this peaceful situation, however, it has gotten me thinking about the faith I exhibit (or don’t) in other areas of my life.

The Struggle Elsewhere

Any time I am met with a new stressful situation, I first initially deal with it. By the end of the day, I have already brought it before the Lord at least once, talking it through and asking that He be with me and my family. It depends on the situation, all involved, the duration and intensity, etc., but a recent example I have is when my mom was in the hospital over last weekend.

My first three responses were to care for the house, watch my little siblings, and trust Him with our lives. It slowly went downhill from there.

You see, when we trust in the Lord, we’re really bringing a situation to Him, trusting that everything will go well because He wants the best for us, and leaving it at that. We are devastated when things go ‘wrong,’ as they often do.

It is extremely discouraging when you pray for something (i.e. my mom to stay at the hospital only one night) and the exact opposite – or worse – happens (i.e. she stayed three). Our faith flies out the window. It deflates. We stop in our tracks. We question Him, read His Word, and wonder where He is.

I remember laying in bed one of those nights and wondering why He would put us through that high-emotional stress situation. I tried to console myself with the knowledge that even when we don’t get what we pray for, He still loves us and has good reasons for allowing trials and hardship … but I still had a hard time holding on. Few other times have I reached such a hard time in my life. However, I must let you know that through all the pain, in the midst of my mistakes and sorrow, He taught me so much.

First, He draws us close when we are hurting. Even when I doubted that the situations that kept unfolding were part of His will for our lives, I continually knew that He was right there, watching over us and keeping us. I just read a verse in Proverbs last week that I hadn’t noticed before, and it ends with this: “…[even the events that seem accidental are really ordered by Him].” (16:33) This floored me because I always find myself wondering if the Lord realizes what I’m going through and how situations are making me feel, which is crazy because He certainly does. However, it’s a beautiful reminder to know for sure that everything we go through, regardless of how ‘accidental’ it seems, is ordained by Him. ❤

Second, our faith does grow when we trust in Him. I just mentioned in a recent post that our trust in Him strengthens when we rest in His will. Here’s an excerpt from that post: “You really don’t know what faith is until all you can do is trust in Him. When everything in your life depends on His will … it’s crazy watching yourself begin to trust in Him more and more. Amidst the chaos, it is an absolutely beautiful thing.”

Looking back, I realize how much I was hurting emotionally at the time of writing that paragraph … but I was still able to praise Him. Yes, struggles are uncomfortable, and can be frightening at times, but with the Lord by our side – it’s unlike anything I’ve ever known.


Thank you so much for reading, guys! I’ve been wanting to write a post like this since around the time my mom got out of the hospital two weekends ago, because I believe that my faith did grow through that hardship, even when I didn’t think it was. ❤

If you are going through something right now that is stressing you out and is increasingly hard to bear, the Lord is there for you. ❤ And if you ever need someone to talk to, my Contact page is always open. (:

Wishing you all a beautiful week!

Missions Monday – Part Four | Thoughts On My Future in Missions

Missions Monday – Part Four | Thoughts On My Future in Missions

Hi guys! I hope that your week has gotten off to a beautiful start. (: Yesterday evening, I decided that I wanted to put up a post today (last second decision, I know, haha), so here I am with the fourth addition to Missions Monday. ❤ Since I only do these posts on a particular day of the week, and because I had the desire on my heart to share something missions-related with you, I have written about some of my thoughts on my future in missions for today’s post. I hope that you enjoy!


Thoughts On My Future in Missions

From the first day of this year, I have been thinking about missions.

It was difficult for me not to after knowing so deeply within my heart that the mission field was in my future.

I’ve prayed for and thought about the days to come; I have dreamed of Guatemala (as you all know by now, haha) … and I’ve wondered again and again just how much missions will impact and form my future.

I still don’t know much. After ten full months of dwelling on this aspect of my life, you’d think that I might have a bit more information by now. No, I don’t. But I do believe that the Lord has been preparing me emotionally and spiritually this entire year, which blesses me exceedingly. However, this has not taken me globally closer to Guatemala, nor has it defined when this trip might happen … or for how long.

The main question that has surfaced in my thoughts recently is this: are mission trips part of my future, or will they make up my future?

I believe I should be able to base the next few years of my life around this answer.

You see, if mission trip/s to Guatemala are simply something I will do as an adult, then I can look at it as being part of my future – an exciting aspect of my life that will be beautiful while it lasts, but not continue. On the other hand, if they’re meant to occur frequently in my life, or are a constant aspect of my future, I will need to make more room for them and take other things into consideration.

It isn’t my desire for the hobbies that I have or for the projects I’m focusing on to get in the way of any mission work (and anything else) that the Lord has called me to do.

I am including the question I presented to you in my prayers and seeking His will. I know and trust that He will guide me – He is always faithful. ❤ The reason I wanted to talk about this was to help me see my future from two separate angles, to be mentally prepared for either to manifest themselves in my life.

I think that the main reason I’m wanting to prepare myself is so that I may have a positive mindset, which will allow me to take everything in stride. Regardless of whether or not missions are to be part of or consist of my whole future, I still love language-learning, I cherish every moment I have with my family, I’m following the Lord wherever He leads me, and I would love to go to college, get married and have a family. (Preferably in that order on the last three facts, but may His will be done, haha)

I am constantly learning, guys. No matter what happens, I’m praying to have the ability to consistently place my life, along with every worry and doubt, before the One Who has my heart.

Thank you so much for reading, guys! I hope that you enjoyed following along on this post. I surely enjoyed writing it. xx

I’ll see all of you tomorrow!

Missions Monday – Part Two | Where I’ll Go From Here

Missions Monday – Part Two | Where I’ll Go From Here

Hi guys! I hope that you’re all doing well (: I’m so happy to be able to share two Missions Mondays posts in a row! This series is a lot of fun for me to write, so it has been fairly easy to come up with post ideas for it. xx

Last week, I talked about how it all began, where I shared where my interest in mission work first began, and how I emotionally felt the moment I knew that I’d serve the Lord in Guatemala one day. ❤

Related Post: Missions Monday | Where It All Began

Today, I’ll share with you where I plan to go from here – not necessarily location-wise, but what I’m doing in the present moment to prepare myself for this part of my future. There are quite a few things I can be doing that I enjoy that will help me to be emotionally and spiritually ready for Guate. ❤ Let’s check this out!

Ways I’m Getting Prepared

~ Learning more Spanish. Since late December of last year, this has been a pretty consistent hobby of mine; I have completed the first five Spanish courses on Memrise!

Related Post: My Language-Learning Journey

~ Studying His Word. By memorizing different verses that bring me great peace (I mentioned some of those on this post), and by leaving this part of my future in His hands, this is the greatest thing I have done and will continue to do: pray that He blesses my mission trip to Guatemala when the time comes. 🙂 I know that I will be ready. ❤

~ Teaching myself the piano basics. The organization that I’d love to volunteer at in Guatemala is basically a cool after-school place for the children that live in the area to go to do their homework and learn different extracurricular activities. I don’t know if they teach any music lessons there, but if they have a piano keyboard, I’d be all for teaching any of the kids interested simple songs and tunes. I think that my knowledge of the piano will come in handy in many aspects of my future (: xx

~ Saving money. This isn’t as easy to do as I’d like at the moment (I’ll mention more on that in an upcoming post this week, haha!), but I’m doing the best I can. I’ve always been pretty good about being frugal and only buying something when I absolutely love it, and putting this into practice when saving for important things has been quite easy. Right now, I’m filling an empty two-liter bottle with dimes (with the help of my awesome family – they have contributed so much of their spare change!), and by the time it’s full, it should equal at least a couple hundred dollars, but we’ll see. I have not taken any money out of it, nor do I intend on doing so until I’m counting it all out.

~ Recording my progress. Through blog posts and journal entries, I love being able to look back at how I felt about the situation even a few months ago. Things change so fast, and having multiple ways to look back on how far I’ve come (and how far I’ll go – that totally wasn’t a Moana reference, lol) is a blessing.


Thank you so much for reading, guys! I hope that you enjoyed this post. 🙂 ❤ If you have any questions about my calling, or if you have a specific missions-related topic you’d like for me to post about one week, definitely let me know in the comments below! I’ll see you tomorrow. xx

Missions Monday – Part One | How It All Began

Missions Monday – Part One | How It All Began

Hi guys! I hope that you’re all doing well. (: Today, I am very happy to present to you a brand new blog series! It will be much like Cultivating A Joyful Life, in that I have a certain time of week I post a new addition, when I have one to post. So, on the weeks that I have something to share with all of you on this topic, I will be talking about Missions on Mondays!

Back in January, I truly planned for this to be a central theme on my blog. Talking about my calling was really on my heart, and it was also the reason I even started this blog! (Hence its name, haha) However, the deeper I got into blogging, the more of a subtopic it became, only popping up every once in a while in passing conversation, and every few months as a spiritual journey update. Sometimes, this fact has saddened me, but I was also content to let it be as it was; I don’t push the matter of a blog topic that doesn’t inspire me to write. I allowed the Lord to inspire me as He would, and it is now that I’d love to share all of this with you.

What better place to start than the very beginning?

The Concert That Changed My Life

On the 22nd of September 2016, I went to a concert. It wasn’t an event completely new to me; I’ve been to multiple concerts over the past couple of years. But this concert was special, because I had been wanting to go to one exactly like it since I was eleven years old, since I had first heard that particular band sing.

It’s in the pureness of the lead singer’s voice, and the beauty and richness of every lyric … they captivated me from the first song. I’d never heard anything like it, nor have I ever since. That captivation carried me to that beautiful concert, meet-and-greet pass and all. I met them, spent a bit of time with them, got to have my picture taken with them. (I’ve featured that image in my summer desk tour post!) I really couldn’t tell you if I enjoyed meeting them or watching them preform more, as both of those experiences were absolutely huge blessings to me.

However, believe it or not, it wasn’t the band, or the concert in particular, that changed my life that night. I did have a blast, and I still think about it all the time. The thing that truly changed me was, in fact, the organization that the concert proceeds went to. ❤

Before the band came up on stage, one of the men on staff at that church got up in front of us (I had a front row seat) and played a video for us on the two large screens. They were on the high walls adjacent to the stage, much like I’ve seen other churches I’ve visited have set up, as well.

That video discussed the organization’s mission, showed footage of many of the kids who go there (who honestly look like such sweethearts), and also talked about why and how the organization began. That latter part made me nervous because they described the place as being a shelter and refuge for the children in the area (Zone 18 of Guatemala City) because of the rampant gangs and daily shootings, and other awful things like that. I don’t like to dwell on people, especially children, being trapped in situations like that, because of poverty, their family situations, etc … but the closer I have grown to the thought of helping those people, the easier this burden has come to bear.

That night, I finished watching the video, listened captivated as the man who started the organization talked a bit more about it (I had no idea he was going to be there that night haha), and wondered why it kept coming back to mind in the months that followed. I had never felt drawn to missions myself up until that point, and even then I was just considering helping that organization financially.

Little did I know how I would feel on January 1st, 2017.

I’ve heard it said that new year’s resolutions are cliché, and I also believe that a good portion of the time, they are … but this year, it was like nothing I’ve ever experienced before or dared dream of. ❤ The fact that it was on the very first day of the year makes it that much more special.

An Evening That Brought Me Peace

Have you ever attempted to recall an event that was so utterly life-altering that you’re only able to remember bits and pieces of it? That’s what I’m struggling with right now – recalling this beautiful evening of January 2017. Why is my brain like this? haha

Let’s see … I remember returning, once again, to Hope for Guatemala‘s website, browsing its informative pages, searching for the answer that my heart was longing for. I hadn’t been able to get the place out of my mind for three months. I realize now that doesn’t look like a very long time, and I only felt like it was because there wasn’t a legitimate reason for me to be dwelling on it then.

I can now see that, even then, the Lord was calling me. ❤

While on the website that evening, I visited a page that I hadn’t been to before. It was titled ‘Internship Programs.’ This next bit may sound strange to you – I started crying so hard that I couldn’t see the laptop screen anymore.

You may be wondering how I felt, or what I heard and saw, the first moment that I knew. I’ve wondered the same thing myself about others who have been called to foreign countries to serve the Lord, and my main assumption was that it must have been pretty spectacular. I mean, it’s the King of kings we’re talking about! And He has a beautiful way of impacting the lives of His children.

When I first began crying, I got out of my desk chair and knelt on the floor beside my bed. I didn’t hear anything different, aside from my own sobbing. I wouldn’t say that I was overcome with tears at that moment; it was more like an overflow of emotions and feelings that my body could not contain. I felt immensely loved and drawn to Him, and in the silence, joy and an intense desire to go consumed me. I don’t remember a word of what I prayed – it’s always like that for me – but I remember smiling with tear-stained cheeks and knowing, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Guatemala was in my future. I knew that He has a purpose for me there, and that He will get me there in His timing, and in His beautiful way.

And the rest was history! (I have shared my progress on the ‘My Calling’ category on my blog, and I will share more information on posts to come!)


Thank you so much for reading! I’m looking forward to sharing a second part to this post series. If you have any questions about my calling, I would love to talk to you in the comments below! ❤
