The Harvest Is Here

The Harvest Is Here

Hello there! Happy Sunday to you. ❤ I hope you’re doing well! I’ve decided to center today’s post on a single Bible verse, not only because it’s wonderful, but also because it has been a good while since I wrote about His Word, which I love so much!

From now on, I’m planning on sharing verses on Sundays this way when one really stands out to me from the week. If I feel like I can write a post on it (like I am today), I’ll gladly do so!

If you’d like to see the verse I’m sharing in this post, I’m including it below! I hope you enjoy reading. ❤


John 4:35

“Do you not say,
It is still four months until harvest comes?
Look! I tell you,
raise your eyes and observe the fields
and see how they are already white for harvesting.”

Let’s say you’re making preparations for a mission trip you’re going on this summer. It is definitely looking like everything is going smoothly, and the trip itself will be a great success.

But that’s four months from now.

Does that mean you should save all of your creative, loving energy for that trip? It makes more sense to put all your effort into planning, preparing, making sure everything’s ready for the day you leave – right?

Well, I think there’s a beautiful balance to be found between thriving in the present, and being conscious of the future. ❤

You see, if we were to wait until specific opportunities to be kind, to love, to share with others about His grace, the world would be a much darker place.

The time is always right to do what’s right.

We need beautiful individuals to rise up and believe, with their whole heart, that the harvest is always here.


Thank you so much for reading! I’m praying I could inspire you on this lovely Sunday. 🙂

I’d love to hear from you. ❤

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!

The 7 Attributes Of A Godly Friend

The 7 Attributes Of A Godly Friend

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend. ❤ In this post, I will be sharing something with you that has been on my heart a lot recently. I’ve been thinking about, praying over, laughing about, and just overall enjoying this aspect of my life, because it is so new and absolutely wonderful to me.

In one of my dearest blogging friends, Jordan (whom I featured in this post!!), I have found a sweet sister in Christ, and the godly friendship we now share is truly changing me for the better. ❤

For years, I have been praying that the Lord would provide me with some people (even just one person!) with whom I can have fun with and call my close friend. It was something constantly on my mind, and it frequently came up in my prayer life, for I was always either losing old friends, or feeling lonely because I had none.

Throughout my childhood and teenage years, too, I have been searching for a friend – and along the way, I have come to see just how important the Lord is in my life, and also that He has provided me with perfect companions in my immediate family. I went through much heartache, rejection, trial, and nights of crying myself to sleep to come to this conclusion, but the temporary pain was well worth it … for I now have a beautiful friend I can confide in, my family to depend on, and my Lord to dedicate my life to.

I could not have come to this point had the Lord not led me through those deep waters.

I definitely struggle when situations don’t turn out the way I desire for them to, and I’d never deliberately choose to experience heartache. But with the Lord by my side? I’ll gladly take on the world if it is His will. For I know that He doesn’t put me through hardship unnecessarily – there is purpose in the pain, and He is there with me through it all.

In this heartfelt post, I brainstormed and came up with 7 beautiful attributes of a godly friend. While writing them, I drew from the experience I have from being buddies with Jordan, and while I (hopefully, haha) possess some of these qualities myself, each one was inspired by Jordan!! I could not have asked the Lord for a better friend than Jordan, and I mean that with all my heart. 🙂

Now, would you like to see the list? Here it is!

The 7 Attributes Of A Godly Friend

— They cause us to draw closer to the Lord. Whether we’re praying for them (or they’re praying for us!), their words of wisdom and willingness to pray for us encourages us in Christ. It is a very good thing to have godly friends! Because who we’re around deeply influences us, and those who have a positive, Christ-like attitude will encourage us to grow as Christians. ❤

— They uplift and positively impact us. Most good friends aim to do this, but it is very prevalent in friends who are following the Lord! Their kindness stems from joy and brotherly (or sisterly!) love, and is fueled by grace.

— We trust their judgement and can depend on their honesty. There are occasions when friends won’t tell the truth to preserve the feelings of their friend, but we know that godly friends are trustworthy and honest! (In the best way possible, even if we don’t want to hear it haha) If you are close enough to the person, their discussions with you will be genuine, thoughtful, and kind, which leads to my next point …

— It’s fulfilling to have conversations with them. There’s something different (and better!) about getting to talk with others who know the Lord – almost like the conversation was planned by the Lord to happen. Isn’t that beautiful? ❤ I believe that sharing Bible verses, praying for each other, and talking about how the Lord’s working in our lives causes us to have a stronger bond with those friends, because the Lord is Who is holding the relationship in His hands.

— We know the Lord handpicked us for each other. I came up with this one while thinking about my friendship with Jordan – we have SO much in common, and even the differences between us compliment each other! I’m very thankful that she and I met through blogging, because she is one of the most genuine, funniest people I’ve ever met (:

— They’re there for us through the hard times. There’s nothing quite like having a godly friend to talk things through with when life gets tough. ❤ Being able to depend on a partner in prayer is a beautiful thing, and their wisdom and inspiring words help immensely, too!

— They model attributes we desire to possess. As I mentioned a moment ago, there are times when differences between two friends even each other out, and encourage the other to be stronger in those areas! For example, if the first person is going through something hard that the second person has already experienced and overcome, then the latter person can be a huge encouragement to the first. ❤


Thank you very much for reading! This was a wonderful post for me to write, because it helped me to organize my thoughts, and I now know what to further look for in future friends.

I hope you enjoyed reading my post on this lovely Sunday! Hope you have a blessed new week. ❤
