5 Things God Has Shared With Me By Listening To Others

5 Things God Has Shared With Me By Listening To Others

After looking through notes I wrote during church services and small group meetings, I decided to compile some uplifting, powerful, and relevant messages that stood out to me.

1. It doesn't cost you anything to love someone.

I think sometimes we get so caught up in our everyday tasks that we forget to show love to people around. It's not hard and can make a huge difference in someone's life.

2. Have love for yourself so you show love to others.

I believe it is a lot easier to be kind to others when you are kind to yourself. This was discussed in a small group in the book of Romans and it really resonated with me and reminded me of the verse Matthew 7:17- "Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. "

3. Jesus does not do things in ordinary ways.

I think this is important to remember when I am praying and asking God for something I want to happen. I have to remind myself it is in his hands and things will not always go the way I expect.

4. You, in Christ alone, are destined for GREATNESS.

It's easy to get down on yourself after a long week or just a bad day but this was a perfect reminder. We all have a purpose and that purpose is GREAT.

5. You will not fulfill the purpose of your life alone.

This was a reminder that there are people along the way that God has put in place to help me in so many different ways and it's okay to lean on people for support sometimes.

Listen to the Lord and to your Christian leaders; you may find your own powerful messages.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
