    Seasons Come With Purpose

    Uncomfortable Places Yes, we’ve all been there. When we’ve dedicated our lives to following Jesus, this comes with a perfect life with no problems whatsoever…… haha I’m just kidding. Life, in fact, gets harder and more trying for us because once we decide to follow Jesus, we begin the journey of being molded into His beautiful bride. Growth comes with being in uncomfortable places and experiencing dry seasons, but how can we navigate through those not-so-easy places and seek Jesus through the process? Let’s dive in! (Sorry I really wanted to say that) In the last few months, I’ve found myself in a season where I kept questioning “what is…

    Learning to Trust in God’s Plan

    Over Analyzing God’s Blueprint How many times have we done this? Sometimes when God opens doors in your life, it can be so easy to question why things are happening, especially when some circumstances are unexpected. Why can’t we simply just walk through it? Let’s talk about this. I’ve definitely been experiencing this lately, and I’ve been learning that each time I allow my mind to question “why?” I am holding back and hindering something that God is performing in my life, while also allowing the enemy to step in and bring negative thoughts my way. Whether it is a job change, or a change in your living situation. Maybe…

    The Fig Tree 🌳: A Study on Luke 21

    Let’s  visualize before we begin: Let’s think about a tree all year long. When you go outside and you see that the trees are orange and red and yellow, you know that it’s officially Autumn and Winter is nigh at hand. When you see the leaves growing back on the trees and flowers are blooming, spring is here and summer is coming! Let’s visualize this as we are reading about the parable of the fig tree and the last days! Jesus’ Warnings to His Disciples Toward the end of Jesus’ ministry, He spent most of His time talking about the last days, the rapture, and the judgement of the Lord. “And…

    While We Wait for Christ’s Return

    We Are Living In Perilous Times HI guys! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! This morning, I was reading 2 Peter and while reflecting on chapter 3, I wanted to share some thoughts on this scripture for encouragement during the times that we are living in. As you may know, we are living in the last days as mentioned in scripture. “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come, for men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady,…

    Finishing the Race

    Life Is Precious and Unique It’s very interesting how precious life is. Each journey is orchestrated by God for the purpose of being a puzzle piece for His glory. Our stories are VERY different, and we all come from different backgrounds. If we take a walk down the street, look to your left and then your right: you will see someone that comes from a rough childhood; may be filled with much pain and hurt, lacking love or facing loss. Because of this difficult background, this person has a different outlook on the world. Why? Because our experiences shape our perspective, whether it be good or bad. Our pasts do…

    Remembering His Faithfulness: A Study on Psalm 78

    Happy Tuesday Beloved! Today, I wanted to share some thoughts on Psalm 78, “A Contemplation of Asaph.” Asaph was the author of this Psalm, and a singer and musician of King David and Solomon. In this passage, Asaph is explaining the faithfulness of the Lord, and the IMPORTANCE OF NOT ALLOWING HISTORY TO REPEAT ITSELF because we’ve forgotten about God’s goodness to His people. Remember What He Has Done for You Asaph begins this chapter by demanding the attention of God’s people (Israel), and informing them about remembering to praise the Lord for all that He has done. “Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us,”…

    How Do We Feel When We Don’t Have Control?

    Hi guys, Happy Monday!! I hope you are all doing well! I haven’t been too active on my blog page in the last couple of months because school has been SUPER stressful, and I’ve been focused on turning in an assignment, preparing for exams, etc., but now that it’s summer, I plan to post more blogs! Anyways, I mentioned my stress with college, and today, I wanted to talk a little about this semester, and how the Lord has been cleansing me during my struggles. So, in case you are unaware, I am an ABSOLUTE PERFECTIONIST. Yep, I said it. I spend all day working away on assignments, aiming to…

    Lively Hope in Christ : A Study on 1 Peter 1

    We have Hope in Jesus Christ! Hi guys! I hope you are ALL doing well! Yesterday morning, I was reading from 1 Peter chapter 1 and I wanted to share my thoughts on how Peter talks about salvation through Christ! To start, Peter was one of Jesus’ closest disciples, whom he regarded as “the Rock” or foundation for the group. Peter ADORES Jesus, and I don’t know about you, but it’s so enlightening to hear Peter’s point of view about the gift of eternal life through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us…

    The Resurrection and the Life

    Hi guys! Today, I was reading from Max Lucado’s book “Jesus: the God Who Knows Your Name” (I will add a link below to this book because it is AMAZING!) and reflecting on John 11 when Lazarus was raised from the dead, and my heart is so full right now! Mary, Martha, and Lazarus were close friends with Jesus, and this is the same Martha that washed Jesus’ feet in Luke 7. When Lazarus fell ill, Martha was hoping that Jesus would come to heal him before he died, but Jesus never came. Lazarus sadly passed away and was buried for 4 days before Jesus came. Aren’t we guilty of…

    Embrace the Wilderness!

    Happy Monday and HAPPY NEW YEAR lovely people!!! I hope and pray that you all had a wonderful holiday! I was reading Matthew 4 this morning, and I wanted to share some encouragement for going into the new year! As the new year approaches, it’s a new chapter, which means new trials, temptations, and tribulations we’ll likely face. If we’re being honest, that’s what we signed up for as Christians. From the moment we were baptized and chose to give our lives to God, He began His work on the inside of us, which includes those moments in our lives that promote our growth. Where are the places that we…
