The Spiritual Influence We Have On Others

The Spiritual Influence We Have On Others

Hello! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ This is the first time I’ve ever really thought about this, but there are several songs, books, sermons, and conversations that have ultimately shaped the relationship I have with the Lord today. Those words of wisdom have taught me about the Lord’s love, what it means to know Him, and how to live a godly life.

My Testimony (Updated For 2018)

My Testimony (Updated For 2018)

Hi there ❤ I hope you’re having a beautiful day! 🙂 One of the first posts that I ever shared on this blog was my testimony, which was back in January of 2017. I called it ‘My Story,’ and I encouraged others to share their testimonies in the comment section, as well. It’s been a long while since I read that post, and for the sake of fully remembering my testimony and not just being reminded of it, I’ve decided to forfeit reading it again before writing this post.

Recently, while I was thinking about my walk with the Lord, I realized that the perception I have of my relationship with Him has changed over the years. The story itself hasn’t, but my understanding of how He was working in my life at those times has! That’s why updating my testimony, sharing deeper insight, and adding to it (i.e. where I am in my walk with Him now) is something important I know I want to do.

My Plans For 2019-20

My Plans For 2019-20

Hi there ❤ I hope you’re having a beautiful day! 😊 I feel like I’ve been doing a lot of update-type posts recently, but that’s because there are some new things going on in my life that I’m enjoying talking about! I’ll try not to make these repetitive, although as greater clarity and insight come to me, getting to write about it is definitely helpful.

When He Calls Me (I Will Go)

When He Calls Me (I Will Go)

Hi there! I hope you’re having a fantastic day! 💚✨ One of the things that has been on my mind a lot lately, as you might know, is Guatemala. It’s funny, because there have been ups and downs in how much I think about it. Its significance in my life has changed more than once, and it continually impacts my relationship with the Lord, as well as the decisions I make every day.

Loving The Little Things – October 2018

Loving The Little Things – October 2018

Hi there! 💛 Happy Sunday to you (: Since I was thirteen years old, I have loved celebrating the little things that make life worth living. This desire was first prompted by One Direction’s song Little Things on their ‘Take Me Home’ album (I love all of those songs haha). While their take on the phrase was admiring all of the little things about a girl (or five girls … since there were five guys in the band? 😂), I took the meaning deeper and found reason to love every little thing in life that stands out to me.

There Will Be Joy Again (Walking Through The Valley)

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Monday. ❤ This past Saturday, I planned out all the post ideas I’d love to share throughout this whole upcoming week. I’m excited to write them and post them – they’re going to be awesome!

To start off this epic bout of productivity (haha), I brought an uncompleted post idea I’ve wanted to write for a while out of my phone’s notes. I’m very happy to get to share the completed version with you today. ❤ Enjoy!

Praying For The Desires Of Our Hearts

Praying For The Desires Of Our Hearts

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ The idea for this post came to me yesterday while exploring the Bible app on my phone. I came across a verse that has been both a comfort and a hindrance in my walk with the Lord over the years. The verse I’m talking about is Psalm 37:4, where the psalmist tells us that when we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of our heart.

I’d like to talk about this verse because it’s one of those promises of the Lord that can be easily misunderstood. Not quite getting the context can lead one to believe that when we pray for something fervently, and then still don’t get it, it’s tempting to think that this Bible verse is a lie.

I’m here to reassure you that it’s not.
